||O||re-review due to expired signatures - plans are ready for signatures - no changes|
||Approved||Homes are stated to be a maximum of 7700 sq feet, and will be fire sprinkled.|
|FYI||All disapproved issues have been addressed - plans are approved.|
1) Review all redline comments and address each one.
2) Return ALL red lined plan sets for each re-review.
3) Your first set of submittals stated the homes would be 15,600 sq ft. This set shows 7700 sq ft. Which is correct?
4) if 7700 is correct, then the required fire flows for a VB sprinkled home are 1500 gpm not 1750.
Please correct plans, and provide info insuring us of the correct sq footage for these homes.
||FYI||This project is: Star Ranch, consisting of 72 lots (Filing 1-40 lots, Filing 2-32 lots) on 52.22 acres. Located west of Yorkshire Place and Langdale Way.

1) Provide CSFD with a copy of the plans at the time of final review
2) Add Plan Review number

4) Provide a copy of the CSU Flow Report
|Disapproved||Your plans indicate that this structure will be fire sprinkled. Please state in the building data that you are receiving a 50% reduction in fire flow for fire sprinklers. Please note, the CSFD MINIMUM FIRE FLOW IS 1500 gpm, flow data less than this will not be acceptable.|
|FYI||Fire hydrants shall be painted in compliance with national color coding standards. By using these standards the emergency response crews are provided a quick way to decipher how much water is available from a specific hydrant. The gpm of the hydrant are determined by an actual water flow test, and it is imperative the testing and color coding is accurate.|
|FYI||ON SITE FIRE HYDRANT FLOWS: PRIOR TO THE TIME OF FIRE FINAL INSPECTIONS, on all new construction sites, it will be the responsibility of the owners, GC, or site manager, to have all new and existing fire hydrants, and private water systems flow tested. Per the IFC, all hydrants are to be installed and in service prior to any construction.
**ALL HYDRANT TESTS SHALL BE CONDUCTED BEFORE ON-SITE CONSTRUCTION IS STARTED!!!
As with any new or revised fire protection system, the Fire Department will need to witness all tests to verify the system will meet the fire flow requirements established during the plan review process. If this test occurs without Fire personnel on site, it will be deemed unacceptable by the inspector and will delay the final fire approval. (IFC 2003, Chapter 1) RJG 1/06
Contact SEAN HIGBEE, CSU at 668-4595 to schedule an ACTUAL flow test of CITY OWNED/PUBLIC hydrants. Be sure to provide them with a CSFD plan review number to include with their flow reports.
Contact CSFD Fire Prevention t 385-5982 to schedule a flow test of PRIVATE OWNED hydrants. A contractor capable of performing the test will be required as CSFD Inspectors WITNESS only. dem 1/04|
|FYI||On all water plan submittals where the domestic water lines are to be taken off of the sprinkler service line, the valving must be configured to meet C.S. Utilities spec sheet WS-13. Any different configuration must be approved by the CSFD, and will be required to have PIV valves installed.|
