Fire Water said...

The still photo shows Josh Bartlett, pointing out the towns forgotten fire pond.. It is the water source to protect the town hall complex, the library, the Methodist church, the Emporium, and other buildings on Rt 25. The path to the dry hydrant is grown over and not accesable. It would be wise to fix this, before the fire.

If the town owns it they should maintain it....

Seems to me that there is a nice brightly painted dry hydrant with clear access right past the Methodist Church. Looks good to me. What is not being maintained? Be sure of your facts please.

Anon posted at 3:12......the " facts " are that that nice red pipe is only piped to the nice red pipe infront of the library. It only is there so we do not have to stretch a hose line across Rt 25. It is called a dry push loop, and must be fed by a pumper drafting at the fire pond, That's where the overgrown dry drafting hydrant is...

To clarify:
The 'dry hydrant' that is mentioned is actually one end of the line under Route 25. In use, it is fed from a pumper that is drawing from the pond behind the old Schoolhouse/Troop E Barracks (currently Harvest Church). This line allows water to be supplied from the pond to the north (Library) side of Rt.25 without closing the highway.

There has been some commentary about the condition of the draft site.
