OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS - SETUP
This Work Package covers the setup of the Containerized Shower (stand-alone) only. Refer to
When deployed as part of Force Provider, the shower site will be staked as part of the Force Provider site
preparation. However, when deployed independently, site selection for the Containerized Shower should
include the following considerations:
An area of about 50 feet x 75 feet is required.
A hardstand or other improved area is preferable; however, any area that is level, free of large
holes, depressions, rocks and other debris and otherwise within the guidelines of the unit
Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is acceptable.
Site must allow for proper placement of the supporting equipment such as the 30 gpm water
pump, M-80 water heater, 3000 gallon water tank (if used), FM 21-10 field expedient wastewater
disposal or graywater storage tank (if used), and 16-foot TEMPER (if used).
A freshwater source must be available. This can be a municipal water system or a 3000 gallon
freshwater tank. If the latter is used, there must be sufficient room for frequent freshwater
deliveries by tanker.
Adequate room for the fuel source must be provided. The M-80 water heater will normally be
supplied by 55 gallon drums of fuel. If the fuel drums are to be refilled, sufficient room for safe
delivery of fuel is required.
A graywater disposal method must also be available. This can be a municipal sewer system, a
storage tank with a servicing plan, or some other field water disposal solution based on area of
operations. If deployed with Force Provider, the shower will use the Force Provider graywater
