Water distribution systems have been developed and awwa m31 for a variety of reasons. Chapter 4 discusses reliability issues awwa m31 because systems must remain in operation even when individual components are out of service. The manual still closely parallels the first edition prepared by the Fire Protection Committee. Systems that provide for fire protection needs have frequently been incorporated into the systems that provide potable water service as well as nonpotable service.

Awwa m31 need for nonpotable water arose because of an increasingly sophisticated lifestyle. M3 fire flow requirements are determined, these are added awwa m31 the other water system demand requirements.

Chapter 3 focuses on distribution storage in terms of both sizing and location. It also became necessary to provide an adequate supply of water for fire protection awws suppression.

This awwa m31 of the manual updates the information, clarifies some topics, and awwa m31 material that is no longer essential. Speed up research, capture and reuse expertise For additional product information, visit the IHS Standards Expert page.

The water utility must work together awwa m31 local fire officials, building code officials, and others to effectively and efficiently promote fire protection.

This manual provides specific guidance on the design, operation, and maintenance of water distribution systems as they relate to fire protection and fire suppression activities.

Good communication between all involved parties is essential to protect awwa m31 and life.

Chapter 1 describes several awwa m31 for determining required fire flows. When the swwa body of a community makes a conscious decision to use the available water supply system for fire suppression purposes, this manual should be consulted, judiciously applied, and tempered as local conditions require.

The American Water Works Association has awwa m31 standards for materials used in the field of fire protection for many decades. As technology awwa m31, many alternatives to this basic water supply configuration can be found. Preface Water distribution systems have been developed and operated for m331 variety of reasons.

Governmental agencies or private enterprise promptly took on the responsibility of providing safe water to meet these basic human requirements.

In many cases, the water systems established to provide potable water were augmented and enlarged to provide water for irrigation, car washing, industrial processes, and other purposes. Appendix B describes the relationship between the water supply system and fire insurance ratings, because one benefit of supplying needed fire awwa m31 is an improved fire insurance rating for a community. The emphasis is on public water systems and not on water systems exclusively designed for fire protection.

Chapter 2 discusses the impact of fire protection on distribution system design. The water utility has important partners awwa m31 fire protection. Chapter 5 describes fire suppression sprinkler systems and their awwa m31 on water requirements, particularly because they affect how water is used for fire fighting. However, it was not k31 awwa m31 early s that AWWA’s Committee on Fire Protection developed the first edition of this manual, which addresses the planning, design, and maintenance of distribution systems that supply water for fire protection and suppression.

The adequacy of a water distribution system for fire protection depends on the fire flows required. IHS Standards Expert subscription, awwa m31 and awwa m31 the process for zwwa and managing standards by giving you access to standards from over standards developing organizations SDOs.

A notable alternative is the use of dual distribution systems. This standard is available for individual purchase. As was the case with the first edition, this fourth edition does not intend to awwa m31 how firefighters should use water to control fires, but rather how water utilities should design and operate their systems to maximize fire wawa benefits while delivering safe, potable water to customers. In the past, many communities recognized the need for safe, potable water that could be used for drinking and awwa m31.
