FYI*****(STANDARD COMMENT 3) HYDRANT PAINTING REQUIREMENT: Fire hydrants shall be painted in compliance with Colorado Springs Utilities 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. smc 9-07
FYI*****(STANDARD COMMENT 4) 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 rev smc-9-06
