Grants Fund New Dry Hydrant Installations

Thanks to grants from the Northern Vermont & George D. Aiken Resources Conservation & Development Councils the Cavendish Volunteer Fire Department has able to install three dry hydrants in Fire District #2 over the last two years.

This year we installed a dry hydrant on Hoey Road in a pond owned by Clifford Johnson of Clifford Johnson & Son. He donated all of his time, machinery and materials used to excavate backfill and level the installation site.

The members of the Cavendish Volunteer Fire Department want to thank him for the excellent job he did.

The installation of this dry hydrant will provide us with a valuable source of water in an area that in the past had to depend on tanker shuttles hauling water over long distances.
