Report an Open Hydrant

Hydrant on Arch Grounds

The City of St. Louis Water Division wants to remind you that it is a crime to tamper with or operate a hydrant without the prior approval of the Water Division. By City Ordinance and State Law, fines and/or imprisonment are possible. Such action can also be considered a Federal crime and is punishable by significant penalties.

Illegally opened hydrants waste millions of gallons of water, chemicals to treat water, and electricity to pump it. They create traffic hazards and accidents, and endanger lives and property by lowering the water pressure needed to fight fires.

Should you suspect a fire hydrant has been opened illegally, please contact Water Division dispatchers immediately. They may be reached at (314) 771-4880 or you may fax the information to (314) 771-4057.
