Best Practices in Water Management During Required Testing of Fire Protection Systems

California is facing one of the most severe droughts on record. Governor Brown has declared a State of Emergency and directed state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for water shortages. He is also requesting significant cut backs in water usage.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is issuing this Information Bulletin to address concerns regarding the growing need to manage water release during the required inspection, testing and maintenance of water based fire protection systems. This publication is intended to guide the fire protection community in best practices of water management for water-based fire protection systems in order to efficiently and effectively maintain these important fire safety systems during these extreme drought conditions. This document provides a set of options (tools) from which dischargers and local agencies may select and customize for their particular needs while meeting the intent of state regulations and local codes.
