Since you may have to expand the supply point, choose a site choose with enough space to add more
collapsible tanks and truck parking areas. You will definitely need to slope the tank sites gently away
from the input side of the tank to help drain the tanks when they are removed. The slope for the tank
sites should be no more than 3 inches for every 100 feet, but enough to drain tanks efficiently.
Reconnaissance for a dry water point may be required by the reconnaissance team. Dry water points are
distribution points not located at a water source which can be a SMFT or FAWPSS setup. These dry
water points are usually set up near major consumers for convenience especially if the supporting water
point is far away. Consider level terrain, easy access for pickup and delivery, and locations near good
road nets. When the dry point is going to be a FAWPSS, consider if the site can accommodate aerial
delivery and pickup of the 500-gallon drums. The LZ must be large enough to accommodate the largest
helicopter and be free of overhead obstacles.
