The CSSL container weighs approximately 10,000 pounds when packed. Lift and move the container only with
material handling equipment of at least 10,000 lbs capacity. Observe all safety precautions. Never stand under a CSSL
container when it is being lifted. Unpacking components requires at least four persons.
This section outlines the siting requirements of the CSSL, and describes the assembly of its components. It also
provides procedures for the preparation, and operation of the CSSL under usual conditions. Refer to work package

Unloading and moving the CSSL requires a forklift of at least 10,000 lbs capacity. Use the built-in, outside forklift
pockets on the container to move the CSSL.
For storage, CSSL containers may be stacked six-high, as long as the bottom unit is positioned on a firm, level
surface. Hoisting requires 10,000 lbs minimum capacity hoists and slings connected to the corner ISO fittings.
Read all warnings and cautions within this section and follow procedures outlined herein to ensure safe operation of
the CSSL and associated equipment.
The selected site should be large enough to accommodate the CSSL container with attached TEMPER (without
vestibules). It should be within reasonable proximity to a freshwater source and wastewater disposal facility. If 3,000
Gallon fabric tanks furnished with each CSSL are to be used for freshwater storage and wastewater collection,
sufficient space is needed to position the tanks as specified in work package 0003 00. The selected site should be free
of large holes, trees, rocks, and debris and be within 5 degrees of level. There should be sufficient drainage to prevent
Proximity to a power source is also required. In addition, the power supply cables, the water supply, and wastewater
drain hoses should not be subjected to vehicular traffic and out of the way of facility users.
Vehicular access to the 3,000 Gallon tanks (if used) is required to frequently replenish freshwater and drain the
wastewater. Additional space is required to position a 30 kW (minimum) generator (if used) to supply power to the
CSSL and consideration for its refueling. Ideally, the container should be located within the distance of the furnished
utility cables and hoses as follows:
100 AMP Cable
Freshwater Supply Hose
Wastewater Drain Hose
