Is it okay for trucks to hook up to the fire hydrants?
It is okay if the truck has been inspected by the Utilities Department and if they have a blue hydrant meter attached to the fire hydrant. Please review photos of the Town’s hydrant meters and notify us at 703-771-2762 if you see a different colored meter or do not see a meter connected. After hours, please contact the Leesburg Police Department at 703-771-4500.
I want to install an irrigation system, what do I need to do?
You or your irrigation contractor must obtain a Loudoun County plumbing permit, install the proper backflow prevention device, and inform the Town's Utility Department of your system.
Your contractor must apply for a plumbing permit through Loudoun County Building & Development.
Why do I have to test my backflow preventer every year?
To ensure that the device is functioning properly and the water supply is protected from contamination. Your device is a mechanical unit that has internal seals, springs, and moving parts that are subject to wear or fatigue. The annual test ensures a properly functioning device and certifies that the device has not been removed or had a by-pass line installed around it. If the assembly fails the initial test, it must be repaired or replaced, and retested with passing results submitted to the Town's Environmental Compliance Inspector.
