Fire hydrants get a facelift

Fire hydrants across Walker County are getting a facelift as part of some routine maintenance required by ISO, the Insurance Service Office. The colors provide firefighters with details about how each hydrant performs, in terms of water flow or gallons per minute (GPM). Red is 0 to 499 GPM, orange is 500 to 999 GPM, green is 1,000 to 1,499 GPM, and blue is 1,500 GPM and above. / Contributed
