8/30/2013 FYIRESUBMITTED: The plans have been re-submitted, and the disapproved issues have been addressed as follows: APPROVED **PLEASE NOTE** ALL COMMENTS FOUND ON PREVIOUS PLAN REVIEWS REMAIN ENFORCEABLE UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED IN THIS REVIEW. 1) PLAN SHEET MG-1 REVISED AND RESUBMITTED. (no date) Pinnow Engineering. CMS Plumbing & Heating. 4 Oxgyen cylinders outside storage adjacent to building total 1,004 cf (251 cf ea) Primary and secondary bank. Master alarm panel noted, changeovers, warning systems 2) exterior storage: weather protection with roof; chain link fence with shielding; roof (7-8 ft hight) no window or doors at exterior wall of building. OK. 3) This facility exceeds the hazardous Materials permit threshold for oxygen (504 cf). therefore, this facility is required to be enrolled in the Hazardous Materials Management Permit Program. This is an annual operational permit, annual inspection and fee applies. The Hazmat Specialist Inspector will coordinate enrollment with the owner. Permit application and reporting is found at https://HAMMERS.springsgov.com Contact the CSFD DFM @ 719 385-5978 to schedule the construction hazmat inspection and the annual Permit inspection.
