AWWA C / AWWA C / AWWA C – Disinfection Of Water Package

After the completion of Flushing and restoration of secondary disinfection, at least one Microbiological sample shall be collected and submitted as soon as reasonably possible, taking into consideration laboratory working hours and transportation timeframes. Flushing shall continue until the disinfectant concentration at the point of Flushing reaches at least 0. The sampling will typically occur at the point of Flushing, and awaa take place from sampling ports, hydrants, blow-offs, or premise plumbing.

The operating authority shall implement the plan as prescribed and the watermain cannot be put back in service until the cleaning, disinfection and sampling is completed as qwwa the plan unless a Water Advisory is declared.

These steps also apply to the planned maintenance of watermain Appurtenances and fittings refer to section 1. The sampling plan shall include as a minimum taking two sets of Microbiological samples at least 24 hours apart. This section does not require that all of the information be recorded on a single form: Operating authorities shall use Certified Operators for functions that must be performed by a Certified Operator.

Watermain breaks with no evident or suspected Contamination are classified as Category 1. Examples of watermain breaks that are typical of Category 2 are included below for illustrative purposes only:. Notwithstanding the conditions of section 1. Longitudinal watermain break with evident Contamination. When performing maintenance and repair activities as per sections 1.

The discharged water is deemed to be a Class II spill for the purposes of O. Follow the steps described in section 3. If chlorine disinfection was used, indicate initial concentration, contact time, final concentration and final concentration as percentage of initial concentration.

Flushing watermain cleaning, the requirements of section 3. The operating authority shall determine if flow can be maintained to the break site until the watermain is excavated.

For all other types of cleaning e. Where copper pipe is used for smaller diameter watermains, Table 1 does not apply.
