Fire Hydrant Installation

On Wednesday, November 14th the installation of a new fire hydrant was completed between TPC blvd. and Championship Way. In order to tap into the main 10" fresh water line leading to the Clubhouse the installation company used a process called "wet taping" to insure there was no water disturbance during installation. After the system was completely installed the line was pressurized to 170 psi to insure long term success. During normal operation this line will be under normal city water pressure which is at 60 psi.
