b. Dry Points. Dry points are distribution points established for distributing
treated water. Their use allows the installation of treatment equipment at the best water
source even though it may be some distance from consuming units. Water is then
trucked from the treatment point to the dry points, where distribution faciIities can be
more conveniently located for consumers. A single water point can serve several dry
points, especially when the bulk of the water goes to a few large consumers, such as
bakeries, hospitals, and encampments (see figure 1-21).
