Why do my hydrants need to be inspected?
Reliability. A number of private hydrants do not operate properly when used by the Burnsville Fire Department. It is important that all fire hydrants (both public and private) work when they are needed.

Burnsville is home to close to 1,300 private hydrants. There is a greater potential of loss of property and life at commercial and multi-unit residential properties with private hydrants.
