The University awarded a contract for standpipe inspectiion and repair.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which public health or safety was threatened.
FJ Murphy will remedy a dry standpipe that upon inspection could not hold even city water pressure and this pipe feeds into Brookens Library. The original standpipe and FDC will be removed and replaced in their entirety. The system will be upgraded to the latest NFPA code requirements of a wet stand pipe system that requires less maintenance and has a longer service life in comparison to the dry pipe existing today. Three total risers are affected by the cracks and weak joints in the scope of this repair effort.
