ABSTRACT

Coffee Break Training: Access and Water Supplies: Protecting Underground Water Pipe   [open pdf - 201KB]

"Underground water mains are a crucial part of many water-based fire protection systems, and must be installed and tested in a way that assures their reliability. Generally, pipe should not be run under buildings but there may be circumstances where that is unavoidable. In those cases, the predominant installation criteria for private water lines, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 24, 'Standard for the Installation of Private Fire Service Mains and Their Appurtenances', allows it when special precautions are taken."
