In order to prevent damage to the pipe lining or to prevent corrosion damage to the pipe itself, the heavily chlorinated water shall be flushed from the main fittings, valves, and branches until chlorine measurements show that the concentration in the water leaving the main is no higher than that generally prevailing in the distribution system or that is acceptable for domestic use.

The flushed water should run visually clear, have a measurable chlorine residual if the system operates with a residual, and be checked with bacteriological testing. If there is any question that damage may be caused by chlorinated-waste discharge to fish life, plant life, physical installations, or other downstream water uses of any typethen an adequate amount of reducing agent should be applied to water being disposed of in order to thoroughly neutralize the chlorine residual remaining in the water.

Work should follow basic disinfection and contamination prevention procedures: Determining the bacteriological quality of water samples collected from the pipe by laboratory test after disinfection.

If allowed by local regulations, the pipeline may be returned to limited service prior swwa obtaining bacteriological c65-105 with proper notification of the affected customers. Removing, by flushing or other means, those materials that may have entered the water main or appurtenances.

Inspecting and cleaning, followed by disinfection of spraying or swabbing with a minimum 1 percent chlorine solution: Whichever disinfectant or method is selected, approval from the local regulatory agency may be required.


Documents Flashcards Grammar checker. Follow all personal protection precautions when working with chlorine solutions. After satisfactory bacteriological sample results have been received for the predisinfected pipe, the pipe can be used in connecting the new main to the active distribution system.

Smith, Smith LaSalle Inc. Table 3 shows the rates of flow required to produce a velocity of 3. Yarning or packing material shall consist of molded or tubular rubber rings, rope of treated paper, or other approved materials. Calcium hypochlorite granules shall be placed at the upstream end of the first section of pipe, at the upstream end of each branch main, and at ft m intervals.
