Call 811 from anywhere in Florida two full business days before digging, and your call will be routed to us. Tell the operator where you're planning to dig, what type of work you will be doing and your affected local utility companies will be notified about your intent to dig. In a couple days, they'll send a locator to mark the approximate location of underground lines, pipes and cables in your yard, so you'll know what's below - and be able to dig safely

Fire Hydrants

Water Distribution maintains over 4000 fire hydrants.

Fire hydrants located throughout Lakeland are installed and maintained by Water Distribution. The hydrant bodies are yellow to promote high visibility. The tops are various colors indicating the size of the main in which the hydrant is attached.


Occasionally hydrants are "flowed" (Illustrated in the picture) by Distribution personnel or the Fire Department.
