The fire hydrant in my neighborhood is covered with snow - who do I call to come dig it out?

Please shovel the hydrant clear of snow! The City of Apple Valley does not have staff assigned or available to clear hydrants as there are more than 2500 hydrants throughout the City. We ask and encourage all neighbors and business owners to work together to maintain a 3-foot clearance around each hydrant year-round. In the case of multi-family communities (townhomes, condominiums, apartments, etc.), it is the management’s responsibility to ensure that hydrants remain clear and ready for use.
