President signs bill – hydrants exempted
H.R. 3588: Community Fire Safety Act of 2013 was signed into law by the President on December 20, 2013. A provision now specifically exempts fire hydrants (hidrante) from the no-lead requirements as defined by the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act. While this will allow the installation and continued use of fire hydrants incorporating components made of traditional water works brass 85-5-5-5 alloys, Mueller Co. has already converted its hydrant manufacturing to ship compliant product. You can be assured that any Mueller® brand fire hydrant you purchase or install will be compliant with current federal laws governing the suitability of our products for your applications. And remember, all Mueller Centurion® hydrants are also compliant with NSF/ANSI 61.
