2-12. OPERATING PROCEDURES.
General. The 300K Water Storage and Distribution System has two primary modes of operation, fill and
discharge. In the fill mode, water is drawn from the water source and stored in the water tanks. During
discharge, water is removed from the water tanks and pumped to the distribution points. The water system can
operate in both fill mode and discharge mode at the same time.
Water System Diagram. Refer to figure 2-24. Water flow to and from the collapsible fabric tanks is controlled by
gate valves identified by the prefix "T". The number following the prefix tells which tank it controls. The suffix
"A" indicates that the gate valve controls water flow to the tank. The suffix "B" indicates the gate valve controls
water flow from the tank. By opening or closing the respective "A" (inlet) or "B" (outlet) gate valves, the tanks
may be filled or discharged.
Startup. Refer to figure 2-24.
The following procedure describes filling of collapsible water tank T1. Additional tanks, T2 through T16, may
be filled by opening their corresponding gate valves (T2A through T16A).
Open gate valves V1, V2, V3 and V4.
Open inlet gate valve T1A on tank T1.
Start and operate the 350 gpm pump P1 Refer to the applicable TM.
If additional pumping capacity is required, start and operate 125 gpm pump P2 Refer to the applicable TM.
