As part of the plan approval process, design engineers must submit a water model demonstrating that adequate domestic and fire flows will be available to their proposed on-site water pipe network, as per the requirements of the Leesburg Design and Construction Standards Manual (DCSM). The Utility Department can provide flow, pressure, and hydraulic grade line information for connection points to the Town's water pipe network.
As part of the plan approval process, the adequacy of the existing sanitary sewer system receiving flows from a proposed project must be determined, as per the requirements of the Leesburg Design and Construction Standards Manual (DCSM).
