Fire hydrant

A fire hydrant is out of service on 17th Street in Galveston on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019. Galveston is replacing its fire hydrants as part of a long-standing project to replace aging infrastructure.


City officials hope by the end of the year to start what could be the last phase of a major project to replace fire hydrants damaged by Hurricane Ike in 2008.
