Adopt-a-Hydrant

The Merchantville-Pennsauken Water Commission, in conjunction with our local fire departments, is asking our communities to partner with us in our Adopt-A-Hydrant program. In the event of a fire, the Fire Department needs access to water supply via the nearest fire hydrant as quickly as possible so that the fire can be extinguished and prevent minimal loss of property and/or life. By adopting a hydrant, you’ll be helping everyone in your neighborhood, or surrounding businesses and assisting fire crews.  By keeping your adopted hydrant free of weeds and shrubs during warmer months, and clear of snow and ice in winter months, you save the fire fighters precious minutes while fighting fires.  When the hydrants are visible and accessible, everyone benefits.

Individuals can participate by adopting a hydrant nearest their homes.  This is also a great opportunity for scouts, civic groups or individuals looking to earn community service hours. For more information and to apply, please complete the form below.  If you have any questions, you may email This email address is being protected from spambots.
