Fire Service Projects
The resources listed below are provided to assist developers, engineers, and contractors in designing and installing new dedicated fire services in accordance with Spartanburg Water's requirements.
We require all projects to adhere to the standards and requirements outlined in Spartanburg Water's Technical Specifications for Water Distribution System Improvements, available in PDF format below.
We also provide standard details and specifications that can easily be incorporated into the site or private fire protection system plans. By providing the necessary details to design professionals at the outset of the project and having these incorporated into the design early, the process can be streamlined. Spartanburg Water will review and approve the proposed plans, review internal fire protection system plans, require a pre-construction conference and perform construction inspections for all new fire services.
We feel that a key to the success of these fire service projects is early communication. Therefore, we ask you to contact us at the outset of a project so that we can assist you. Please contact Joel Watson at (864) 580-5681 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
