The City Utilities Design and Construction Resource Center provides general utility design resources, green design resources, and standard drawing and specification templates.

The Design Standards Manual is a guide for the planning, design, and construction of stormwater and sanitary sewer collection systems, water distribution systems and facilities, and associated activities for City Utilities. Guidelines, basic design criteria, standards, and mapping are presented in the Standards. 

City Utilities Master Specifications are provided as a convenience and a tool for engineers doing work with or for the City Utilities. Master Specifications are provided to the Engineer with Notes to Specifier (NTS), throughout the documents. Each NTS identifies sections within the speciation that must be reviewed and edited by the Engineer. The Master Specifications are also referenced in Book 5 Materials MA2.04 Master Specifications.

The appropriate Standards and Drawings are to be used as part of the Project Documents related to the CUE project and should be used in conjunction with the other Utilities Design Resources. The details are expected to be used as presented. When a special detail is created, it must not conflict with other requirements in the Standards, other City Utilities' Engineering (CUE) Standard Drawings and Details, or National CADD Standard V5.0 (NCS) guidelines. The Standards Drawings and Details are available in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document File (PDF) and Autodesk review design filed (DWF) format. The CADD Resources are also references in Book 6 CADD Standards CADD8.02 General. 

As part of the design of an extension of Fort Wayne's water distribution system, flow tests from the existing system are sometimes required. Read more

Visit our GIS City Interactive Map to see Hydrant Flow data from past tests: https://maps.cityoffortwayne.org/maps/map.htm

Zoom in to the area of interest. Select "Layers" on the left to turn on the "Fire Hydrant Flow Testing" and "Water-Facilities" layers. You may need to zoom in closer to have the water system appear (the more zoomed in the more detail-values, hydrants, annotation, etc.). Click a water line or colored dot to get information via the pop-up tool tips. Click the small arrow on the top-right to flip through the different gis features (water main, hydrant, Fire Hydrant Flow Testing) until you see the Fire Hydrant Flow Testing Data.

To receive the Hydrant flow test data for a test performed in the past or to request a new Hydrant Flow Test, click on the following link to submit a request: Request for Flow Test Data

For data for a previous test, include the "Fire Flow Test ID" in the Target Address field of the Request Form.

Early phases of site development such as plan review are handled by City Utilities' Development Services Department. For information regarding land use, planning, zoning, permitted uses, variances, etc. please contact Community Development
