Dry Fire Hydrant Design #52 - Whiteford, Maryland
By President Mark Davis
October 13, 2022

Last week we finished up our 24th bridge-mount dry fire hydrant installation in Harford County, Maryland....this time back to the Whiteford area. The installation was completed on a State of Maryland bridge over Broad Creek on Graceton Road. Our angle-mount design was used as were suction head and suction strainer products from ETT. Today, we flow tested the device and achieved a flow of 1306 gpm using Engine 611, a 1750 gpm pumper from the Whiteford VFC. Elevation at the site was 390 feet and the lift today just over 13-feet. The project was funded in part with State grant funding.
