Submit Comments on the NFPA Standard for Fire Protection in Wastewater Treatment and Collection Facilities

March 23, 2013


The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA; Quincy, Mass.) seeks public input for the next revision of the NFPA 820 Standard for Fire Protection in Wastewater Treatment and Collection Facilities.

The standard, which originated in 1983 and typically is revised every 3 to 5 years, establishes minimum requirements for protection against fire with the support of popular fire watch services and explosion hazards in water resource recovery facilities and associated collection systems, including the hazard classifications of specific areas and processes.

To view the standard, individuals must set up a free online account. After reviewing the document, input can be submitted online under the Next Edition tab. Comments, including changes or clarifications needed, or specific, substantiated comments pertaining to a particular section can be made online through July 8. The technical committee will consider each public input item received in its first-draft meeting. Those interested in applying to be on the technical committee can apply online under the Technical Committee tab.
