Hauling Water -Western Maine Style!

On the afternoon of May 21st, about 40 folks from Cumberland and Oxford Counties, Maine gathered at the Harrison Fire Department and hauled water for about 2-hours as part of our 16-hr Rural Water Supply Operations Seminar. The program was sponsored by the Cumberland/Oxford Fire Chiefs' Association and hosted by the Harrison Fire Department. The drill culminated a weekend of reviewing the best practices of hauling water with tankers; the goal was to sustain a 500 gpm flow and then work to reach the best peak flow based on the resources available.

Eight tankers, four pumpers and three fill sites were used to reach a peak flow of 1000 gpm during the drill. Two of the fill sites provided about a 6-mile round trip and one provided about a 3-mile round trip. Many thanks to the Harrison Fire Department for the excellent logistical support. Instructors for the weekend were Mark Davis and Alan Butsch.
