Fire Hydrant Tampering

It is illegal to tamper with or open a fire hydrant without a permit from the Utilities Department. All withdrawals from Town fire hydrants must be accomplished through a water meter and backflow prevention device. All town-rented hydrant meters are dark blue in color, like the examples shown below.

Small Hydrant MeterLarge Hydrant Meter

The meter must be attached to the hydrant during use. If you do not see a dark blue hydrant meter, or see a meter of another color, or suspect tampering or misuse of a fire hydrant, please report it via our online form or call the Utilities Department immediately!  During normal business hours (Mon-Fri, 8:30am-5:00pm), please call 703-771-2750. After 5:00pm and on weekends, call the Leesburg Police Department non-emergency number at 703-771-4500.
