Adopt a Fire Hydrant

Hydrant Snow

The DPW and Wellesley Fire-Rescue Department are asking for your help clearing fire hydrants of snow in your neighborhood this winter season. There are more than 1,400 hydrants in Wellesley and each one is potentially vital in the event of an emergency.

Adopt a hydrant in 4 easy steps:

1. Visit the Wellesley Adopt a Hydrant web map.

2.  Pan and zoom to your neighborhood or search for an address by expanding the Find tab on the left. In the Address field, start typing your Street Name and select the Street when it appears in the drop-down list. Repeat this for the Address #. The map will then zoom to your neighborhood.

3.  Click on the Adopt a Hydrant button on the right and then click any RED hydrant to adopt it. Green hydrants have already been adopted.

4.  Enter your information in the pop-up form and click “Update.”

NOTE: If the pop-up form doesn’t appear, make sure to enable pop-ups for this MapsOnline website in your internet browser settings.

Please be careful and aware of roadway traffic, and thank you for volunteering to keep our neighborhoods safe!
