If these disinfectant concentrations cannot be achieved, Flushing shall continue until the disinfectant concentration at the point of Flushing is representative of the system residual in the break area, determined by sampling upstream of the break area and downstream at the Flushing location, or by using documented benchmarks for the area, as long as free chlorine concentrations are at least 0.

The procedures are required to be followed in order to satisfy conditions imposed by the Director in a drinking water works permit. D651 disinfection requirements for new watermains as per Section 1. Contamination is typically not suspected for circumferential breaks or small leaks where flow is maintained from the break until an Air gap is established and where the Air gap is maintained during the repair procedure.


Flow may be reduced by throttling valves while maintaining sufficient flow from the break to minimize the potential for Awa. The OIC will assess the evidence of Contamination or potential Contamination of the watermain before and during the repair procedure, and shall classify the break into one of two categories as per 3.

Staged sampling shall be performed as follows:. Spiral watermain break with evident Contamination. Appendix B Tools to help determine the category of watermain break – pictures Examples of watermain breaks that are typical of Category 1 are included below for illustrative purposes only: Drinking water system operating authorities shall ensure that emergency repairs to watermains and Appurtenances are undertaken in accordance with this procedure by any person authorized to perform the repairs.

Operating authorities may choose to provide notification to, or seek advice from, the local Medical Officer of Health at any time. The operating authority shall determine if flow can be maintained to the break site until the watermain is excavated.

X651 there is evident or suspected sewage Contamination of a xwwa, in addition to the procedures in sections 3.

If chlorine disinfection was used, indicate initial concentration, contact time, final concentration and final concentration as percentage of initial concentration.

This section does not require that all of the information be recorded on a single form: The flow shall be directed to ensure that the sample represents water that has passed through the location of the repair.
