I'm quite familiar with conducting hydrant flow tests, NFPA 291, and have read articles such at the Sprinkler Age article from Feb. 2018. And I know the residual hydrant should be between the hydrant(s) to be flowed and the large source mains for the area.
But in terms of a specific project site (especially if the underground is well-gridded), would you chose the hydrant closest to your project to be the static/residual hydrant, or would you select the flowing hydrant to be closest to your project (and adjusting the static/residual for any elevation difference)?
