Dry Hydrant Parking Update Place: Lake Columbia
We have 8 locations around the lake that are Dry Hydrant locations: Wesch Court, Castlewood Park, Big Bedford (East) Park, Little Bedford (West) Park, Archwood Lane, Karen Court Park, Hilltop Court Park and Hawthorne (Waverly) Park. The new ISO rating for the township is a 5/5Y, this is the new classification from the old 5/8B. These numbers are what insurance companies use to apply and figure in the cost of insuring in a geographic location. It is a lengthy process to say the least. You should contact your insurance company with this new rating so they can determine if you are eligible for a rate reduction. Here is additional information from the Columbia Township Fire Department regarding the parking distance from a fire hydrant.
