but no trap. A dry well with a very small capacity is sufficient.
(2) Baptismal Water. Where baptism by immersion is programmed, the
vessel needs to be supplied with both cold and warm water, and drainage. See
Facility Plate 20, page 37.06-79. It must have moving water with the rich
symbolism of sufficiency, cleanliness, liveliness and renewal this supplies.
Movement and supply must be acoustically acceptable in the multi-use context
of the setting. Its plumbing must be so designed that the water can be warmed
to 85 degrees F (29 deg. C), that the flow can be fully controlled, and that the
water level can be lowered to avoid overflow when immersion is undertaken.
Clearly a large volume of water flowing to a drain is an extravagance.
Recirculation systems are troublesome and are often noisy as well as costly;
they should generally be avoided.
(3) Staff Facilities. In every facility, showers should be available
for the use of staff personnel because they may alternate between physical
labor and ceremonial participation or encounters with other persons.
FURNISHINGS AND EQUIPMENT.
General Notes on Procurement. An equipment list is a part of the
Project Engineering Documentation. The development and refinement of an
equipment list are done in conjunction with the project manager, collateral
equipment specialist, and interior design branch, and coordinated with the
appropriate personnel from the Chief of Chaplains' staff. To the degree that
required furnishing and equipment is available within the Federal supply
system, maximum use should be made. Items not available should be identified
and specified in accordance with applicable naval practice and the Federal
Groups of Furnishings and Equipment. To ensure a functional chapel
there are six groups of furnishings, equipment, artifacts and other items.
Every facility will not require all the items in each group.
The naval procurement system separates much equipment into three
categories. Category A is equipment furnished and installed by a contractor
from Military Construction Program (MCON) funds; this is the second group
discussed below. Category B is equipment furnished by the Government from
operating funds and installed by the contractor from the Military Construction
Appropriation; this category is usually irrelevant to these facilities.
Category C is equipment furnished and installed by the Government, usually
with operations and Maintenance, Navy (O&MN) funds. This is Collateral
Equipment. In the discussion that follows this category is further divided
into three groups - the third, fourth, and fifth discussed. In addition to
these groups some equipment is consumable and is procured through station
funds, the sixth group. But first there is a group of items that does not fit
any of the established categories and is described in the following paragraph
as Group I.
