How Do I Find Buried Hydrants and Catch Basins?

Fire hydrants should be dug out after the storm and the rain on Monday will need somewhere to go too.

How Do I Find Buried Hydrants and Catch Basins?

During the weekend, Fire Departments in the area and other first responders were pushing for residents to make sure the fire hydrants near their home were cleared out.

On Monday, as rain begins to fall, the focus turns to catch basins. Maybe there's one near your home, but you forget exactly where it is located.

You're in luck - there's helpful colored arrows painted near the middle of the street pointing to the exact location of catch basins and fire hydrants.

A painted white arrow near the center of the road indicates the location of a catch basin in Danvers, according to Bob Lee, director of operations for the Danvers Department of Public Works.

Meanwhile, a painted yellow arrow near the center of the road indicates the location of a hydrant.

Use this info to find your way into the snowbanks and help dig out.
