Lake Sullivan’s dry hydrant
Lake Sullivan has dry hydrant located on the west side of the lake along County Road 51. A dry hydrant is a non-pressurized pipe installed at a pond or lake that is in close proximity to an all weather road. Dry hydrants provide firefighters with a way to replenish their water supplies. A fire crew can refill its tanker truck from a dry hydrant which is located near the fire area.
