Dry Sandpipe Inventory
The dry standpipe inventory in the accelerator and experimental area is provided below. An explanation of the abbreviated column headings follows.
First Column - Each standpipe has been numbered with white or black block numbers. This assists in ensuring that fire fighters connect hoses to both ends of the same standpipe.
Second Column - The above ground standpipe location is listed in terms of the nearest building or buildings. In the absence of a nearby building, a location is listed.
Third Column - The door nearest a standpipe associated with the North and South Linac Service Buildings, Buildings 1 and 2 is listed A standpipe between doors 7 and 8 is listed as "7-8".
Fourth Column - The above ground standpipes have two appearances: 1) a red pipe comes out of the ground vertically. The end of the pipe is fitted with a chrome-plated label plate and a chrome-plated cap. These are listed as "Visible pipe". 2) a pipe penetrates a building wall horizontally, and the label plate and cap are flush with the wall. The pipe is not visible from outside of the building. These are listed as "Flush".
Fifth Column - The nearly one-mile long accelerator tunnel is divided into station number's to assist in identifying equipment locations. Every twenty numbers ( 1280, 1300, 1320, etc.) in the station-numbering system is painted on the inboard wall of the tunnel. The station number and the dry-pipe number should assist fire fighters in locating the correct standpipe.
