New fire hydrants could lower insurance premiums

   Recently, the expansion of Water District 119 and some new water lines in the city of Duvall have provided new fire hydrants in areas that had none before. Residents who live within 1,000 feet any of these new fire hydrants may qualify for a reduction in their fire insurance.

   Those residents should contact their insurance companies asking for the appropriate insurance rating. Within Fire District 45, those residences within 1,000 feet of a hydrant would have fees based on an ISO fire class of five (5). This should result in a substantial reduction in premiums.
