Details that should be included in a set of
construction drawings of a water distribution system are
varied and numerous. You may, for example, prepare
plans, elevations, and details for a new water storage
tank. Other examples are as follows: thrust block details,
trench details for underground piping, details for
aboveground pipe supports, and plans and details for
valve boxes, vaults, and so forth. The design engineer
will determine the details to be shown.
In addition to drawings of electrical and water
distribution systems, you may be required to prepare
detailed drawings of wastewater systems. This section
provides a brief overview of these systems so you will
be familiar with the elements and structures used in
wastewater systems and the general content
requirements for wastewater system drawings.
SYSTEM ELEMENTS AND STRUCTURES
A wastewater system (fig. 2-20) consists of the
collection of sewer pipes and pumps that are designed
