In the Fall of 2016 we completed a fire protection water supply assessment project for the Cornwall Volunteer Fire Department in Cornwall, Connecticut. Part of that project was an assessment of a damaged and out-of-service dry fire hydrant located in Cornwall Bridge along the Housatonic River. Our recommendation included a complete replacement of the system using 8-inch welded steel pipe and connections. During a recent journey through the Cornwall Bridge area we took a few minutes to stop and examine the new system. We are pleased to report that the new, welded steel pipe dry fire hydrant system is quite robust and doubles the capacity of water that can be pumped up into the nearby village. It is always nice to see recommendations come to fruition. Nice work to everyone in the Town that made this project happen!
