What’s required to participate?

Your time and effort. It’s that easy! Each volunteer group is assigned a group of hydrants to improve. (Groups may choose the particular hydrants, subject to Village approval.) Your group will be given instructions and materials to complete the needed work. In addition to the sense of pride your group will feel by enhancing the appearance of your community, your group will earn $10.00 per hydrant to put towards whatever you choose.

Who’s eligible?

Just about any group. It’s a great opportunity for all types of organizations, including scout troops, homeowners groups, church groups, activity and teen groups, clubs, service organizations and senior citizen groups. Crew members must be a minimum of 10 years old. Participants between the ages of 10 – 18 must have adult supervision at a ratio of one adult for every five youth.

An important note about safety

All Adopt-a-Hydrant participants are required to follow safety procedures during participation. All participants are required to wear a safety vest while working and age restrictions must be strictly followed.
