compatible with TRICON transport requirements (TM55-8145-200-13&P).
Site Selection. When selecting a site for installation of the water system, consider the overall operating
area Siting must include access to the water source, adequate space to set up four 600 gpm pumping
stations, two water storage and distribution points and associated hoseline to connect the water system
to large water distribution centers (maximum hoseline length is 10 miles Site should be level and
provide good water drainage away from system components. If possible, site should slope down hill
from water source to water dispensing points.

The water system does not require special sheltering during normal operation. Heated shelters may be
required when operating in extremely cold conditions (below 32°F) . Store unused water system components in
the TRICONs and packing crates to prevent damage and minimize routine maintenance.
