FYI(STANDARD COMMENT 10) INSPECTIONS Please call 719-385-5982 Extension 2 to schedule all construction related inspection activities.

When calling, please have your complete CSFD plan review number(s) ready for each inspection request. ( i.e. 2013-1234 - HS-1) The CSFD Approved sets of plans are to be on site for all inspections.
FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) DISAPPROVED ITEMS ADDRESSED: The plans have been resubmitted and all the disapproved comments have been addressed and/or corrected as follows: 1. New hydrant is as opposed to a CSU required "blow off" due to financial considerations. 2. Hydrant 1526T across Copper Center Py is 155' from proposed FDC. There is landscaping and parking blocking access if FDC moved to NW corner of structure. This arrangement is being allowed. 3. Existing hydrant to NE is PRIVATE and would require a dual use agreement. Distance to FDC is approximately 280'. 4. Nearest existing hydrant on Voyager is approximately 169' from FDC. In speaking to DEW this is not preferred but acceptable.
