"I took this picture to question the powers that be. This is from that new construction site on Prince St and Roosevelt Ave. The construction site uses city water WE pay for. My water bill is high enough. Why are they NOT being charged for use and waste of water?

What should I do if I see an open fire hydrant?
Open Hydrants should be reported to 311. In addition to the location of the hydrant, please report the time of day and the type of activity at the hydrant (recreation, car washing, etc.)
Can anyone use fire hydrants legally?
(RCNY §21-03 (f)) Hydrant use requires a DEP permit which is issued at DEP's discretion.
How do I get a permit to use a fire hydrant?
Permits are issued through BCS Borough Offices. If the use is approved, they cost $55.00 every 30 days, plus $13.50 per day it is actually used.
Was this opening legal? Don't know. How does one find out? Is a permit supposed to be posted somewhere?
