The Elusive White Flanged Fire Hydrant.

The rare white, silver flange hydrant in its natural habitat. (2-10-13)

                   Wasn't sure if this type of hydrant existed. It has been described as the hydrant with the weakest, lowest water pressure and are near the dead end of the water pipes. This hydrant is near Lake Michigan. If you really need to put out a fire just run down to the lake for more water if this hydrant doesn't do the trick. The city of Chicago's pdf won't load forcing this blogger to a quote from a now dead, defunct website. 

"Adopt and Paint a Fire Hydrant Program | EveryBlock Chicago 4, 2011 – I don't know for sure if Chicago does any color coding for hydrants but I ... Those attached to "dead end" mains or 4" mains have a white flange."
