f. Plumbing. All plumbing in a mobile home park must be constructed,
installed, and maintained in accordance with state, local, and Army requirements. The
plumbing facilities must not create cross-connections or back siphonage. Any fixture in
a mobile home that creates a cross-connection or a backflow connection cannot be
attached to the potable water system. The defect must first be corrected. In addition,
all plumbing must be protected against freezing; sewers should be installed below the
frost penetration depth of the area in which the mobile home park is located.
4-11. SOLID WASTE HANDLING
Public health problems are often associated with improper storage, collection,
and disposal of solid waste. There are significant relationships between the incidence
of certain diseases in humans and animals and the improper handling of solid waste. It
is also common knowledge that many hazards and nuisances, such as fire, smoke,
odors, and unsightliness, are created by inadequate handling of solid waste.
Experience has shown that applying basic principles of sanitation to the handling of
solid wait greatly reduces insects, rodents, and related health problems. Solid waste
includes garbage and rubbish. Garbage refers to solid waste that contains food items;
rubbish refers to solid waste without food items.
