Potable Water

Potable water

Potable water is available and sufficient to

support the full development of the entire Fort Hancock.

The Lessee will be required to install a new water meter

provided by the park and billed to the Lessee. Also, the

Lessee will be required to have the water service line

inspected and tested by a qualified licensed plumber and

an inspection report with recommendations must be

submitted to the park for approval. The report must also

indicate whether the current water line size is adequate

for the proposed use of the building, and identify the

material of the existing water line. Any defective, leaking,

or undersized water lines must be repaired or replaced

before the Lessee occupies the building. Water lines that

require replacement must be replaced with copper. Areas

of open cut construction will require NEPA and Section

106 compliance. Archeology monitoring shall be paid for

by the Lessee. Asphalt and concrete repair and ground

repair, i.e. seeding costs, must be borne by the Lessee and

will be subject to the NEPA/106 compliance process. Any

repairs will require NPS approval of plan and schedule.

All work must be completed according to the most up

to date New Jersey Code and constructed to industry


annual maximum for potable water is 50 million gallons.

buildings connect to a 6 inch water main. Both buildings

are served by 1.5 inch pipes. Service to Building 27 will

require an upgrade in service. Applicants should propose

how they will upgrade service to Building 27 and address

the proposed increase in the diameter of pipes servicing

Building 27. For both buildings, Applicants should

propose how they intend to replace any non-copper

plumbing components.
