Article is self explanatory we need to fire protect this department and safeguard our capital equipment while at the same time correcting the water leaks the department has been experiencing. larger diameter pipes will be installed to prepare for Hydrant service which is part of the plan . I support this article.
When fires break out you need hydrant service if you do not have it dire consequences can result.
