Dear PoPville – Legality of Construction Workers using Fire Hydrants?

“Dear PoPville,

Are construction workers allowed to use their own tools to open city fire hydrants and use that water to mix cement, wash down sites, etc.? This has been happening at the construction site at 14th and Belmont/Chapin.

I know the district has a hard enough time keeping hydrants working and when the workers finish using them, they all leak causing huge pools of mud and eroded curbs.

Just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas about the legality of this.”
