Have a current project that is stalled due to water supply conditions. A water flow test was not conducted early in the project.
Options have been presented to the other responsible parties for consideration, however a particular party has rebutted with “Where does it say you can not go below a certain water pressure?” The existing water supply would be taken down to 6 psi and the questioning party wants documentation on the standards of the lowest psi a water supply needs or should not drop below.
Can anyone provide or give direction on finding information regarding water supply requirements or standards which address minimum water supply requirements?
