Discharges of flushed water are also regulated under Condition 4. Chlorine Concentrations and Contact Times for New Watermains At levels over 10 milligrams per litre, a measurement of total chlorine shall be deemed to be equivalent to a measurement of free chlorine.
If, at any time, Contamination is evident or suspected, the break shall be reclassified as Category 2. Watermain disinfection procedure Share facebook twitter Print.

Mibar The chlorinated water shall remain in the pipe for at least 24 hr. It shall be delivered to the job in closed containers and shall be kept clean and applied with dedicated clean applicators. This hose must be removed during the hydrostatic pressure test. Figure 1 applies to pipes with diameters 4 in. The pipe required for the connection must be set up aboveground, disinfected, and bacteriological samples taken, as described in Section 5, if 6c total length of the connection from the end of a new main to the existing main is greater than 20 ft 6 m. The material should be stored in a cool, dry, and dark environment to minimize its awaw. The more closely the rate of delivery is correlated to the rate of pipe laying, the lower the risk of contamination.
