We found this photo from our 2009 drill in New Windsor, MD. Not every fill site water supply is going to be perfect. This shallow stream had enough flow to support loading 1500-gallon engine tankers. It could not support the entire tanker shuttle operation; but it met the need for the smaller waterr haulers. A second site was used to load the large capacity tankers. The photo presents a good discussion about lift and floating strainers and mini-pumpers with larger capacity pumps. The site worked just fine...just on a smaller scale.
