Fill Site Operations #09 - Keep It Simple and Organized

While spending some of our quarantine time looking back through photos from our past seminars we found a couple from our June 2013 seminar in Turtle, Wisconsin and it reminded us of the importance of simplicity and organization at a tanker fill site. The fill site shown in the photos was one of several used to support a 2-hr water supply drill. A pumper drafted from a creek and supplied water via 5-inch LDH to the jumbo wye. The dedicated "loader" then controlled water flow to the tankers being loaded....also using LDH. While two tankers may have been connected at the same time, only one was loaded at a time. The crew did a great job of cycling tankers through the fill site. It was simple and organized and most importantly...it worked!
