Dry Hydrants

What is a Dry Hydrant?
A dry hydrant is a non-pressurized pipe system permanently installed in a lake, pond or stream that provides a supply of water for fighting fires.

Dry hydrants provide a locally accessible water source for fire fighting in rural areas without municipal water supplies. When properly installed and maintained, functioning dry hydrants provide a nearby water source for fire departments and greatly reduce travel time for hauling water to the fire site. Access to a local water supply can increase fire-fighting efficiency, which can save lives, reduce property losses, and may reduce insurance premiums.
