"Black Fire Hydrant Plan Gets Red Light"

Well, I hope this works out for them.

From KSAT-12:

SAN ANTONIO -- County and utility officials have worked out a color-coding system that is expected to ease confusion about working fire hydrants in municipalities to the northeast of San Antonio.

Previously, the Green Valley Special Utility District had ordered all of its hydrants painted black in compliance with a state law requiring low-pressure hydrants be painted. The district claimed its reasoning in painting all of its hydrants was that it couldn't insure all hydrants would have sufficient pressure at all times.

Now, the board said it will paint the hydrants red and work on a color-coding system to specify a hydrant's pressure.

Mentioned previously here and here.
