Dry Fire Hydrant Design #49 - Keeping Out Livestock - Letting in the FD

By President Mark Davis

During our 2013 water supply study in Codorus Township, Pennsylvania, we encountered a dry fire hydrant supplied by a stock pond on a local horse farm. The installation used a removable pasture board fence to allow the fire department access to the suction head while at the same time protecting the suction head from the livestock. The system worked really well....of course it is dependent on fence upkeep....but it did work. Nothing fancy...just some simple old ingenuity.
