Reprint of Winery Utilities: Planning, Design and Operation. This is the first reference to integrate the basic planning, design and operational function of the many support systems that make a winery operate successfully. The author, an expert on wineries, gathers the essential elements of the major energy, water, wastewater, communication, solid waste, fuel, and fire protection groups and each other of their important subcategories, into one solid source. Comprehensive, easy-to-use chapters in this book provide winery principles with: The necessary tools on how to avoid regulatory agency problems when obtaining use permits and meeting building code requirements at the planning stage. Useful guidelines for designing utilities for eventual expansion to meet anticipated production measures or for checking options for system upgrading or improvement. Helpful comparisons of utility systems or subsystems that work against those that do not and why. Contemporary environmental constraints and methods for minimizing environmental disruption in the design of utilities.
