Subfacility of Fire Training Center
The drafting pond is used to train for rural drafting operations, to simulate the usual problems encountered, such as mud, debris, and limited access.
The water pumped from the pond should be placed back into the pond. Extreme care should be taken not to erode or wash away embankments or sod with hose streams. Care should also be taken to keep any contaminants such as hydrocarbons from entering the pond that could affect the aquatic life.
Water from this pond will not be connected to or pumped to any fixed systems, or fire hydrants on or near the training field, to prevent possible contamination of the potable water supply.
