In order to legally take water from a Fire Hydrant, you must use a Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) Fire Hydrant Meter. Release or use of water from a fire hydrant without an HCWA approved fire hydrant meter is illegal for anyone other than the Henry County Fire Department.

Applications can also be emailed to: email@example.com
After the hydrant meter application and paperwork is processed by the HCWA Billing Department, the meter can be picked up no later than 4:30pm from the HCWA Purchasing and Inventory Department located at:
