The Florence Township Water & Sewer Department requires that anyone wishing to use a fire hydrant for the purpose of obtaining water for any reason shall purchase a permit in advance at the Wastewater Administration Building located at 1500 W. Front Street. Hours are 7:00 AM to 3:30 Pm, Monday through Friday.
The permit will be for the desired gallons total that the user needs and will be assessed at $5.75 per one thousand gallons. The permit is valid for 90 days for the total amount of water purchased.
The only hydrant in Florence Township that shall be utilized for obtaining water is located at the Florece Township Wastewater Treatment Facility on 1500 West Front Street. The permittee shall sign-in at the front desk of the Administration Building at the Wastewater Treatment Plant on every hydrant usage. The gallons will be subtracted from the overall permit to track the usage.
Hydrants in other areas if Florence Township may only be used if permission is granted, in writing, by the Florence Township Water & Sewer Department. The permission document shall be kept by the user for verification upon usage of a different hydrant.
Usage of any hydrants in Florence Township, without written permission, will be in violation of ordinance #2014-13. The Operator of the vehicle using the hydrant will be cited to court and fined for violating the ordinance.
