Petitions for installations of fire hydrants can be picked up at the White Township Office. The petition must be signed by 51% of the property owners that are within a 780 foot radius of where the hydrant(s) would be located. The township office can assist you in determining this. After the completed petition is returned to the township office, the White Township Supervisors review it and approve sending it to the water company if they feel it is needed. The township will enter into a contract with the water company to have the hydrant(s) installed. The water company determines where the hydrant(s) will be placed and how many will need to be installed. Upon completion of the installation, the residents are assessed annually by the township for their share of the costs based on the number of residences that are within the required distance of the hydrant(s).
