The Williston Fire Department worked with neighboring departments during the exercise. A tag team of water hauler filled an ‘artificial pond,’ which supplied two pump and hose trucks, while firefighters gave the meadow a thorough watering, wrote Addie Hall, who snapped the photos. ‘As a resident of a street without hydrants, I am glad to know the fire department practices these skills,’ Hall wrote in an email to the Observer.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
