(5) For below ground repairs remove debris and excavate until damaged pipe
section is fully exposed so that secondary damage assessment can be performed. Continue to
excavate around the damaged piping until undamaged pipe sections are found. The pipe sections
must be round and in close alignment.
f. Installation. See appendix D.
g. Safety Precautions. Safety practices associated with flammable liquids or vapors
should be followed. Each Navy shore facility has the responsibility to develop techniques for
fire fighting bomb damaged POL pipe lines, to remove fuel from the crater, suppress fuel vapors
while repairs are made, and to use explosive-proof equipment. Upon completion of temporary
repairs, the line should be reactivated to check for leaks. If the repairs exhibit no leaks, the
trench should be covered with plywood or steel matting until permanent repairs are made.
h. Stand-Alone System. The following complete and self-supporting system is listed for
consideration for use in the event utility sources are destroyed and resumption of services is
vital. Stand-Alone systems are based upon advanced base facility component (ABFC) technology
and can be procurred. For current procurement information contact:
