October 2020: The West Pawlet Volunteer Fire Department has installed a dry hydrant/tank storage system at Loomis Trucking on Route 149.
The dry hydrant system will supply over 1000 gallons of water per minute to residential/commercial property in this area.
This brook/tank regeneration system is the first in our district. It is a 1600-gallon tank with 6” permanent suction line. The tank system uses brook water from Bullfrog Hollow.
