Why Do These Fire Hydrants Have Antennas?

Above is a picture I took a few days ago of a fire hydrant in Wheaton, Illinois.

You see that the fire hydrant has an antenna. Does anyone know why this fire hydrant would have an antenna?

Below you see another picture of a fire hydrant with an antenna. This hydrant was just down the block for the other hydrant.

Are these hydrants in communication with each other? Like some type of evil robots or cylons?

Are they communicating with the fire station? Are they communicating with the water department about water levels? Is it some type of art?

Here is some history of fire hydrants from Fire Hydrant.org.
