CWS provides temporary water use for Fire Sprinkler Standpipe Flow and Pressure Tests, that are required to be performed on buildings within CWS' jurisdiction. An approved application and $500 fee are required. Here's what you need to know:
Prior to scheduling a Fire Sprinkler Standpipe Flow and Pressure Test, and use of a CWS fire hydrant for temporary use, please notify the Cross Connection Control Department Program Manager, and submit the application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will respond to your application request with an invoice for you to pay the $500 fee. Once payment is received the test can be scheduled with one of our inspectors. We require three days advance notice for scheduling.
The $500 fee is a one-time expense required for each building being tested. The CWS Inspector will be available until a passing test result is achieved.
