Motion by Wisniewski seconded by Hugo to adopt the BAWTP water testing standards as follows
DWS Disinfection and Pressure Testing Standard
3.03 FELD QUALITY CONTROL:
A. Pressure Leakage Testing
Pressure leakage Test for Ductile Iron and PVC Pipe
The DWSWater Superintendent may require pigging at any time prior to a new water main being placed into service. Should plgiying be required, the CONTRACTOR shal instal a new polyurethane foam Poly-Pig into the main for the purpose of cleaning items from inside the pipe and for removing air during the filling process. After the entire water main, or any part of the Water main located between two gate valves has been constructed and approved by the Engineer, the Bay County DWS shall witness the CONTRACTOR flush, disinfect, and sample the new portion of water main using chlorination and disinfection procedures as described in Section 3.04.A of this Section. Note: CONTRACTOR shall not operate valves that connect and will "open" the newly installed water main to the public water supply system.
Once it is determined that the main has passed the disinfection requirements of Section 3.04.A, the installed main and appurtenances shall next be subjected to meeting the requirements imposed by a pressure leakage test given as provided in this Section.
Note: All equipment used in the pressure leakage test shall be clean and properly disinfected So as to not allow introduction of contaminants into the water main during festing proceditres.
AWWA Standard C60010
WARNING: The testing methods described in this section are specific for water pressuro testing. These procedures should not be applied for air pressure festing because of the serious safety hazards involved.
Test Restrictions: The hydrostatic test pressure shall be 150 PSI or twice the operational system pressure whichever is greater,
The hydrostatic test shall be of a least 2 hours duration. The test pressure shall not vary by more than + or - 5 PSI for the duration of the test.
Pressurization: Water pressure testing shall be completed between two valves. This will limit the amount of water main which can be tested at one time and isolate leaks if present. The completed pipe line valves shall be slowly filled with disinfected water until all air has been expelled. When certain that all air has been expelled from the pipe line, the water pressure shall be raised to 150 pounds per square inch and shall be maintained at this pressure for a period of at least two hours,
Testing Allowance Defined:
Testing allowance shall be defined as the quantity of makeup water that must be supplied into the newly laid pipe or any isolated section thereof to maintain pressure within 5. PS of the specified test pressure after the pipe has been filled with water and the air has been expelled. Testing allowance shall not be measured by a drop in pressure in a test section over a period of time. -
