BWSC conducts fire flow tests for engineers, developers, and sprinkler design companies. The tests provide actual pressure and flow data measured at specific fire hydrants within BWSC's water distribution system.
Requesting a fire flow test can be done in person at Engineering Customer Service or by downloading the Fire Flow Test Form and mailing the form to BWSC's offices, at 980 Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA 02119.
Fire Flow Test Form
BWSC charges $442.00 to conduct a fire flow test and provides written results. The test results are usually available within three weeks of receiving the request, weather permitting. BWSC also maintains previously performed fire flow test results.
