Fire Flow Tests

The Public Works Water Department performs Fire Flow tests in compliance with City standards and specifications. Fire flow tests are conducted to measure real world pressure (PSI) and flow in the water system. The following are some reasons why a flow test may be required by the Chino Valley Independent Fire Department or Building Department:

  • To determine water availability in planning for firefighting activities during high water demand.
  • To determine water availability for the design of fire sprinkler systems.

The test results take 7 to 10 business days, excluding Fridays. To learn more, view the Fire Flow Test Form (PDF).
