The article provides information on the data collection, preliminary engineering and detailed engineering of a steam-distribution-system design outside of a boiler plant. According to the author, the data collection must include site survey, soil report and environmental testing. He added that the district steam systems require substantial amount of engineering effort. He emphasized that a well-engineered and constructed district system can provide a safe, reliable and efficient steam service.
