Fire hydrants are only for use by the Water Department and the Fire Departments!


The fire hydrants in the Town of Bethlehem are only for use by the Water Department and the fire departments for emergencies. Unauthorized use of the fire hydrants could result in poor water quality and water main breaks in our water distribution system.

Contractors, Landscapers, Hydro-seeders, Pressure Washing companies, etc. that need access to large volumes of water shall first obtain a permit from the Water Department at Town Hall. Once a permit has been issued, the permit holder can get water at one of two designated locations: the Town Highway garage at 74 Elm Avenue East or the Field Operations garage at 308 Kenwood Avenue. Individuals looking to obtain water at one of these locations must present their permit to the Town Personnel on site prior to receiving any water.

If you see anyone other than the Water Department or Fire Departments using a fire hydrant, please contact the water department at (518) 439-4955 or the Town of Bethlehem Police Department at (518) 439-9973.

If you would like more information, please contact the water department.
