Transmission Mains. Where the distribution is pumped
from storage, transmission mains should have capacities equal to
the maximum-day demand as expressed by Equation (2), plus
industrial use demand. Without such storage, they should meet
maximum hour demands.
Distribution System. The minimum capacity of a
distribution system should be sufficient to meet these
Instantaneous peak domestic and industrial flows
Maximum fire demands, plus 50 percent of average
domestic demands, plus industrial demands which cannot be
restricted during the fire
Replenishment of normal storage volume within 24
hours of average demand after a fire.
Reservoirs. Reservoir capacity should be adequate to
satisfy the total of the following requirements:
Peak fire flow demand as given in MIL -HDBK-1008C.
50 percent of average daily consumption (domestic
Minimum working volume of one hour at average
demand (domestic and industrial) for scheduling of treatment
plant equipment and service pumps maintenance.
