We are pleased to announce that Mark E. Davis, President and owner of GBW Associates, LLC has completed Clemson University's Certified Master Pond Manager program. What does the MPM certification bring to the fire protection water supply arena? The certification process provides a thorough review of all aspects of managing storm water and recreational ponds - which of course in many cases end up being used to support fire protection needs. Over the years, our consulting services and dry fire hydrant design and installation services have taken us to many ponds - some in good condition, some in not so good condition. The Master Pond Manager certification provides us with the knowledge and credentials to intelligently discuss the use of ponds for fire protection water supply needs. We plan on using the Master Pond Manager certification to improve our services.

The use of ponds for fire protection water storage is common all across the USA and Canada.  A well-designed and maintained pond is critical to meeting the fire protection water supply need.  In most all cases, ponds must be maintained - they simply cannot be constructed and "left alone."
