make sure when you move into a new home, there is at least one hydrant nearby!

Poor city planning for no fire hydrants. How many other houses areon that street and surrounding area? Maybe they should ask for some hydrants - soon!

A city should never expand beyond it's capacity for water, Rio Rancho is expanding rapidly and the city needs to consider renovating it's infrastructure if this is to not occur again. ~maybe this should be considered Before any plans for a new stadium.

I don't know why Rio Rancho doesn't have a city ordinance requiring minimum fire hydrants for subdivisions. Location and distance of fire hydrants are included in the Uniform Building Code also in the Uniform Fire Code. All cities follow these codes if they don't have their own Building Codes. I smell a rat.
