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. The proposed hydrant will be used for FDC support only as existing hydrants are modeled to provide the proper fire flow for exterior protection. The proposed hydrant does not meet the minimum fire flow of 1500 gpm, however it does have adequate fire flow to meet the automatic fire suppression system demands. Reference variance file and edocs.

FYI*****(STANDARD COMMENT) SCOPE OF WORK: -XXX----WATER PLAN
DisapprovedDISAPPROVED The following information and/or corrections are needed prior to completing a full plan review: 1. The proposed fire flow is only 1300 gpm for the new hydrant where the minimum standard is 1500 gpm - what is the purpose of installing or designing a water supply that does not meet the minimum code requirements? 2. Under the simultaneous fire flow, the proposed fire hydrant flows only 500 gpm which is below the minimum 750 gpm accepted under such flow conditions. This facilty/design does not meet the minimum requirements for fire flow. It is doubtful this 6-inch line will supply both the fire sprinkler system and suppression activities. Also: 1) Review all redline comments and address each one. 2) Return ALL red lined plan sets for each re-review.
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

DisapprovedDISAPPROVED The following information and/or corrections are needed prior to completing a full plan review: 1. Your building data is completely incorrect - the square footage is the gross square footage, not the footprint. Thus the required fire flow is based off 27000 sqft, not 9000 sqft. 2. No fire flow report was provided. 3. Is there a planter or roof overhang (see plans) 4. The existing hydrant noted is on a private line - is this a private hydrant? If so, to be considered we must have a private hydrant use agreement. 5. FDC location is not indicated. 6. Review application was not provided. Also: 1) Review all redline comments and address each one. 2) Return ALL red lined plan sets for each re-review.
Disapproved(DISAPPROVED) FIRE FLOW REPORT Provide confirmation on the fire flow results from Colorado Springs Utilities. A copy of their report for this area is required to be provided with your plan submittals. When multiple fire flows are provided from CSU, please indicate all flows on your submitted plans.
