Fire Hydrants – Elizabeth NJ

Description

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) worked to repair and replace fire hydrants in Elizabeth, New Jersey. In addition to making the fire-fighting infrastructure more effective (and aesthetic), WPA involvement with the project meant that the city of Elizabeth did not have to cede the availability of 15 firemen for several months.
