An adequate supply of potable water, complying with the Potable Water Standards established by the State Department of Health of the State of New Jersey, shall be provided in each mobile home park. The water shall be obtained from an approved public potable water supply, if available at the boundary of the mobile home park. If an approved public potable water supply is not so available, a water supply shall be developed in accordance with Standards for the Construction of Water Supply Systems for Realty Improvements promulgated by the State Commissioner of Health. The water supply shall be approved by the State and local Department of Health prior to its use.
A water distribution system shall be provided to transmit the potable water supply throughout the mobile home park. The supply shall be made available to each mobile home lot, building or other facility requiring water via a separate water service pipe, at a minimum pressure of 20 pounds per square inch.
An individual water riser shall be located within the confined area of each mobile home lot at a point where the water connection will approximate a vertical position. The riser outlet shall be designed so that a watertight connection can be made between the outlet and the mobile home piping system.
The water riser shall extend at least four inches above the ground elevation. The outlet shall be plugged or capped when not in use.
Adequate provisions shall be made to prevent freezing of risers, valves and water service pipes and to protect risers from heaving and thawing actions of ground during freezing weather. Surface drainage shall be diverted from the location of the riser.
Each riser shall be provided with a shutoff valve conveniently available to the tenant in the event of an emergency.
The water supply system of a mobile home park shall be provided with storage unless the supply is derived from a public potable water supply.
The location, size, type and elevation of the storage facility(ies) shall be such as to meet the distribution pressure requirements as established in § 64-17.
Potable water shall be stored only in impervious tanks protected against surface drainage. All tanks shall be provided with watertight covers, and any overflow or ventilation openings shall be covered with metallic screen of not less than sixteen mesh to prevent the entrance of insects and vermin. No storage tank shall have a drainage connection direct to a sewer.
No physical connection shall be made between an approved public potable water supply and an unapproved water supply unless it satisfies the provisions N.J.S.A. 58:11-9.1 et seq. A semipublic water supply is considered as an unapproved water supply for the purpose of this regulation even though it may meet the Potable Water Standards established by the State Department of Health of the State of New Jersey.
Drinking fountains, if provided, shall be constructed of impervious material and have an angle jet with the nozzle above the overflow rim of the bowl. The nozzle shall be protected by a nonoxidizing guard. The bowl shall be of easily cleanable design, without corners, and the bowl opening shall be equipped with a strainer.
If the water furnished consumers in a mobile home park is not obtained from a public water supply system, it shall be sampled quarterly each year and submitted for bacteriological analyses in accordance with the provisions of the Potable Water Standards established by the State Department of Health. All results of samples taken under this regulation shall be assembled, recorded and maintained by the park management for inspection by the New Jersey State Department of Health and the local Board of Health.
Mobile home lots constructed or reconstructed after the effective date of this chapter shall be provided with water risers and water service pipes of at least three-fourths-inch nominal inside diameter.
A shutoff valve shall be provided for each water service pipe.
Underground combination stop and waste valves shall not be installed.
