Businesses wishing to use water from a City fire hydrant require a Non-Premises Permit from the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). This permit grants access to hydrant water for a specific period of time and requires payment in advance on a 'per day of use' basis.
See Rules Governing and Restricting the Use and Supply of Water.
