Dry Fire Hydrant Design 16 - Swiveling Bridge Mount Design - Ripton, Vermont

On June 19th we installed one of our bridge-mounted, swiveling dry fire hydrants in Ripton, Vermont. The installation design used our angle mount brackets which were bolted to the bridge's guard rail posts. Ripton is located in a fairly mountainous area of Vermont and access to surface water in the main part of town is somewhat limited. The lift at the bridge was quite high (16+ feet) but the water supply was reliable and much needed for the area. While we generally avoid such high-lift installations, the outcome (984 gpm) proved acceptable to the local FD and we were pleased with the installation. The fire department plans on using the new installation primarily as a water source for tanker loading operations.

The installation was funded with grant assistance from the Vermont Rural Fire Protection Task Force, an excellent organization that strives to improve fire protection efforts in the rural areas of the State.
