How are separation distances determined?

All separations are determined from the outside pipe or enclosure.  All plan submittals should be utilizing the outside diameter of pipe, catch basin, sewer main, storm drain, etc to identify the minimum separation distance allowed per NAC 445A.

Plans must demonstrate actual pipe diameters and ensure all separations meet the minimum requirements of NAC 445A.
