Latest buzz question I receive about fire hydrants...............

Fire Hydrant Painting Project

The City of Newark Water Dept. has started painting the tops of fire hydrants various colors to show firefighters the flow rate of the hydrant. Blue tops designate the greatest flow rate, followed by green, orange and red with the lowest rate. The department has tested the flow on about 1,500 of its 2,000 hydrants and plans to complete the painting of all hydrants by the fall.
