Goochland County Fire-Rescue’s Annual Testing of Dry Hydrants Begins April 8th

Goochland County Fire-Rescue Annual Testing of Dry Hydrants Begins April 8th

Goochland Fire-Rescue’s annual testing and preventative maintenance program for our dry hydrants will begin April 8th, 2019.

Goochland County has opted to use a new vendor this year, who will perform all the normal preventative maintenance, plus will send a diver into the water to inspect the piping and strainer. “Cannon’s Service LLC”, owned and operated by Mr. Bobby Cannon of King & Queen County, will be accompanied by one of Fire-Rescue's Engines to back flush and check the flow rates of the dry hydrants. 

The plan is to start in the west end of the county and progress to the east with project completion during the first week of May. Fire-Rescue's Training, Health & Safety Officer Chan Rowland will be coordinating this year’s project and may be contacted via cell (804) 385-3168 or email crowland@goochlandva.us.
