Dry Hydrant Design #63 - Bridge-Mount Installation - McClean, NY

March 21, 2024

This week we completed the installation of one of our bridge-mount dry fire hydrants on a bridge over Fall Creek in McClean, New York. The project was funded by the McLean Fire District and used our angle-mount bracket system. The lift at the bridge was pretty high (16-feet) but the water supply was abundant and usable. A 6-inch ETT brand female dry hydrant head and a 6-inch ETT stream strainer were used on the system. A flow of 809 gpm was attained during the flow test using McLean FD's Engine 1201. Many thanks to the McClean Fire District for choosing our dry fire hydrant design.
