SCENARIO-BASED CASE STUDYSection 1Since the warehouse is far from a fire station, I think that it should utilize a combinationsystem for means of moving water. The combination systems utilize the direct pumping andgravity system. The elevated storage tanks serve as emergency storage and provide adequatepressure through the use of gravity, and during low periods of consumption the pressure is highand vales open and allow the storage tanks to fill. And during high consumption periods theelevated storage tanks provide extra water by feeding it back to the distribution system.Brakhage,Abrams, Fortney (2016). With the deterioration of pipes in the main supply line fromthe city they should be replaced as soon as possible. Had they not been so compromised the citywould have boosted the pressure allowing for more adequate pressure to supply the warehouse.The warehouse should also be on a grid system. A grid system is “a large pipingdistribution that has multiple water pathways. It is an interconnection system of water mains in acrisscross or rectangle pattern Brakhage, Abrams, Fortney (2016)”. With the grid system thewarehouse should also have a combination of private and public water supply. Private water
