Last year we were successful in securing two grants from the same group which allowed us to install two dry hydrants. One was installed at Knapp Pond #1 and the second one was installed on Tarbell Hill Road at the Norrie Davies pond.
The installation of these dry hydrants allows us to provide a much improved level of service due to the availability of water supplies.
We are continually looking for additional locations where there is a suitable source of water in which to install dry hydrants.
We want to thank the Northern Vermont & George D. Aiken Resources Conservation & Development Councils for these grants for without their funding the installation of these dry hydrants would not have been possible.
