Disapproved(DISAPPROVED) FIRE FLOW NOT ADEQUATE The fire flow calculations provided do not meet the minimum flow requirements for the structure proposed. Please contact CSU and request a "simultaneous fire flow report." The simultaneous fire flow report is a special report, which takes considerable more time and effort to prepare, and is typically not performed unless specifically requested. CSU will provide this report in cases such as this, and hopefully the fire flows will exceed the code required minimums. If the simultaneous flows do not meet the required amounts, contact the CSFD for additional assistance with your project
