As originally posted in Talk of the Sound, SUEZ Water is replacing failing traditional fire hydrants across New Rochelle, NY with Spartan 300’s from Sigelock.

“Working with the firefighting community has been an important part of the pilot,” said Chris Graziano, vice president of SUEZ operations in New York. “This design incorporates some of the most significant hydrant changes in more than a century. That’s why we worked closely with firefighters to be sure they are comfortable with this new equipment.”

In addition providing absolute reliability and improved water flow for fire fighters, regardless of weather conditions, The Spartan 300 also virtually eliminates non-revenue water and dramatically improves water security.

“After research and field testing, we determined the new hydrants have design features that actually help the Fire Department operationally,” said New Rochelle Fire Chief Andrew Sandor. “They allow us to get water on the fire quicker; they also provide an increase in water flow.”

Here at Sigelock, we could not be more thrilled about our partnership with SUEZ Water and the advancing program in New Rochelle!
