Description of quarantine site diagram - Example: 1. Add basic infrastructure

The quarantine site diagram shows a large rectangular area. Within this rectangular area, there are a number of boxes representing the placement of everything within the basic infrastructure of the quarantine site. At the far right corner there are two well aeration locations, with an incubation area below. Feed storage is located at the right side of the diagram, with the office/staff room and parking/receiving area below. The recirculation tanks are located in the middle of the diagram and the storage shed/shipping area is located below them. The settling pond is located at the far bottom left of the diagram to the right of the creek source, which is located at the far left of the site.

The water flow pattern is superimposed over the quarantine site diagram using arrows and lines.

Well 1 aeration supplies water to the incubation area. Well 2 aeration supplies water to the recirculation area and three separate tanks. The creek source also supplies water to the three separate tanks. The three effluent sources from the incubation, recirculation area and three tanks meet in a common water system, which then leads to the settling pond.

The animal locations and gate/fence lines are superimposed over the quarantine site diagram using lines and labels. Eggs, alevin and fry will exist in the incubation area, broodstock will exist in the recirculation area, and grow out animals will exist in the three tanks. There are lines drawn at the bottom of the quarantine site diagram to represent fence lines and a gate that leads to the parking/receiving area.

Any locations that restrict the movement of people, animals or vehicle traffic can be further superimposed upon the diagram (e.g. gates, fence lines, etc.).

Description of quarantine site diagram - Example: 4. Laboratory Quarantine Room

The quarantine site diagram shows a large rectangular area. Within this rectangular area, there are a number of boxes representing the placement of everything within the basic infrastructure of the quarantine site. Lines and arrows represent water flow within the site diagram. A laboratory quarantine room is located within a main building. There is an autoclave located in the hallway of the main building. There is an entrance into the laboratory quarantine room within the main building that leads into an ante-room. There is a feed storage area at bottom right corner of the room and an office/staff room within the top left corner of the room. Well 1 aeration supplies water to the incubation area (where eggs, alevin and fry exist) and the recirculation area. The two effluent sources from the incubation and recirculation areas meet in a common water system, which then leads to the effluent containment and treatment area.
