Dry Fire Hydrant Design 21 - Bridge-Mount DFH - Harford County, MD
By President Mark Davis
December 20, 2018

We recently completed the installation of three, bridge-mount dry fire hydrants in Harford County, MD. Each installation used our saddle-mount bracket attached to a 'jersey-wall" style bridge rail. In all three cases the lift was above 10-feet but the water supply was excellent...so the sites proved valuable to the local FD. The installations were funded in part through grant funding provided by MD's Department of Natural Resources. The two primary advantages to the bridge-mount design is that it generally allows for faster set-up for drafting with fewer people and, no special environmental permitting is needed.
