Handling and distribution of pipe. Special care in handling shall be exercised during delivery and distribution of pipe and appurtenances to avoid damage. Damaged materials shall be rejected and replaced at the contractor's expense. The pipe shall be stored prior to use in such a manner as to prevent damage and keep the interior free from dirt and foreign matter. Any pipe that becomes contaminated shall be hand-cleaned and washed before it is incorporated in the work. It must be stressed that contamination in the line will prolong and impede the disinfection operation. Flushing cannot be too heavily relied upon for cleaning due to the low velocity of water flow.
C. 
Pipe markings. Each length of pipe shall be marked in accordance with ANSI Specification A21.51 (AWWA C151) as to manufacturer and class.
D. 
Excavation of pipe trench.
(1) 
All water mains are to be installed within the public way. Trenching and excavation in public roadways must be done in accordance with the specifications of the governmental authority having jurisdiction over the roadway.
(2) 
All excavations shall be made in such manner and to such widths as will provide ample room for properly installing the pipe and to permit thorough compacting of backfill around the pipe. Enlargements of the trench shall be made to give ample space for operations and pipe joints. The depth of trench in general shall be such as to provide four feet of cover over the pipe, but this depth shall be increased or, if approved by the Town Engineer, decreased as required to avoid obstructions, to cross under streams and to make connections. The contractor shall not use excavating equipment which requires the trench to be excavated to an excessive width.
(3) 
The trench shall be excavated to the required alignment, depth and width and in conformance with all federal, state and local regulations for the protection of the workmen and public and private property. Trees, shrubs, fences and all other property and surface structures shall be protected during construction. Temporary support, adequate protection and maintenance of all underground and surface structures, drains, sewers and other obstructions encountered in the progress of the work shall be furnished by the contractor.
(4) 
The pipe shall be laid directly upon the trench bottom which has been hand-trimmed to provide the pipe full-length bearing. The pipe shall be laid without blocks.
(5) 
Where excavation is in rock, the rock shall be removed to a depth of at least six inches below the pipe barrel. The trench shall be refilled to grade with gravel or crushed stone fill, firmly compacted to provide proper bedding to the mid-diameter of the pipe.
E. 
Pipe installation.
(1) 
Installation of piping and appurtenances shall conform to AWWA C600.
(2) 
Proper and suitable tools and appliances for the safe and convenient handling and laying of pipe and fittings shall be used and shall in general agree with the manufacturer's recommendations. Deflection, however, shall not exceed 75% of the maximum amounts recommended by the manufacturer. Care shall be taken to prevent the bell and cement lining from being damaged.
(3) 
When it is necessary to cut ductile-iron pipe in the field, such cuts shall be made carefully in a neat workmanlike manner using approved methods to produce a clean square cut. The outside edge of the cut end shall be conditioned for use by filling or grinding a small taper at an angle of about 30°.
(4) 
At the close of work each day, the end of the pipeline shall be tightly sealed with a cap or plug so that no water, dirt or other foreign substance may enter the pipeline, and this plug shall be kept in place until the pipelaying is resumed.
(5) 
No street or public place shall be opened by any person for the purpose of installing water mains, pipes or fixtures unless permission shall have been granted by the authority having jurisdiction. All surfaces must be restored to their original condition at the completion of work or in conformance with the conditions of any highway work permit issued for the work, as appropriate.
F. 
Joint assembly.
(1) 
Single-rubber gasket joints.
(a) 
The single-rubber gasket-type joint shall be made with an elongated grooved rubber gasket which fits into a socket in the bell of the pipe. The gasket shall be wiped clean, flexed and then placed in the socket. Any bulges in the gasket which might interfere with the entry of the plain end to the pipe shall be removed. A thin film of lubricant shall be applied to the gasket surface which will come into contact with the spigot end of the pipe. The lubricant shall be as furnished by the pipe manufacturer.
(b) 
The plain end to the pipe, which is tapered for ease of assembly, shall be wiped clean and a thin film of lubricant applied to the outside. The pipe shall be aligned and carefully entered into the socket until it just makes contact with the gasket. The joint assembly shall be completed by inserting the pipe past the gasket until it makes contact with the bottom of the socket. The pipe shall be pulled home with an approved jack assembly as recommended by the pipe manufacturer. If assembly is not accomplished by reasonable force, the plain end shall be removed and the condition corrected.
(c) 
For this purpose of electrical bonding, the pipe manufacturer shall furnish serrated bronze wedges for the installation in the horizontal plane between the pipe barrel and the pipe bell. The contractor shall install two wedges at each joint in strict conformance with the manufacturer's instructions.
(d) 
It shall be the responsibility of the contractor to test for electrical continuity throughout any new piping installed in the presence of the Town Engineer or his representative if any question of electrical continuity should arise.
(2) 
Bolted mechanical joints.
(a) 
Mechanical joints shall be made up with gaskets, glands and bolts. When a joint is to be made up, the bell or socket and plain end shall be cleaned and washed with a solution of mild soap in water; the gland and gasket shall be slid into the plain end and the end then entered into the socket until it is fully home in the centering ring. The gasket shall then be painted with soapy water and slid into position, followed by the gland. All bolts shall be inserted and made up hand-tight and then tightened with a ratchet wrench; torque to be applied to each bolt shall be tightened alternately to bring the gland into position evenly. Excess tightening up of the bolts shall be avoided, and torsion wrenches shall be used if needed to prevent excessive tightening. Care shall be taken to assure the pipe remains fully home while the joint is being made up.
(b) 
Gaskets for all mechanical joints, including valves and fittings, shall be approved lead-tipped rubber gaskets.
G. 
Rodding.
(1) 
Where shown on plans or where ordered by the Town Engineer or his representative, the contractor shall provide rodding to prevent joint separation. The rodding shall comply with generally accepted standards. Bands shall be one-half (1/2) inch thick by two inches wide. The bands shall be wrought iron and fabricated to provide a snug fit behind the pipe or fitting bell. The tie rods shall be three-fourths-inch diameter steel threaded rods unless otherwise specified. Before backfilling, all exposed metal shall receive a heavy coat of bitumastic paint.
(2) 
The rodding shall supplement as a safety factor and shall not reduce the thrust blocking requirements.
H. 
Thrust blocking.
(1) 
Concrete thrust blocking shall be provided at plugs, tees, bends, hydrants and at other locations as may be designated where a sizable unbalanced thrust will be developed. The blocking shall be in general of such shape and form that the load due to the thrust shall not exceed two tons per square foot against earth or five tons per square foot against rock when the water pressure in the line is carried at the test pressure. The excavation at such locations shall receive special attention with such hand trimming as may be required to provide a good bearing against undisturbed materials within as short a distance as possible from the pipe or fitting.
(2) 
Where reactions are in the vertical plane, provisions to restrain the thrust shall be made to meet the existing field conditions by either concrete anchorages, steel dowels grouted into holes drilled in rock, or a combination of both.
I. 
Rodding of hydrants.
(1) 
The contractor shall provide restraining rods for each and every hydrant installation in strict compliance with the manufacturer's assembly instructions. The rods shall be of three-fourths-inch size and threaded and assembled as follows: the tee shall be rodded to the hydrant valve and then from the valve to the hydrant, two distinct operations. Eye bolts shall be used as directed by the Town Engineer or his authorized representatives. The rods shall supplement as a safety factor and shall not reduce the thrust block requirements as directed.
(2) 
Hydrants shall be set exactly plumb and to such depth as directed by the Town Engineer or his representative. They shall rest upon a selected stone or block or concrete not less than twelve by twelve by six (12 x 12 x 6) inches and shall be similarly backed up to prevent movement of any kind. The hydrant shall be surrounded by at least five cubic feet of one-and-one-half-inch crushed stone or gravel. In excavations where drainage cannot be secured in this way, other arrangements for drainage will be provided as directed.
(3) 
Prior to the completion of the installations, all hydrants shall be painted with two coats of paint in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications. Any hydrants deemed unacceptable shall be reset regardless of prior approval.
J. 
Backfilling.
(1) 
Pipe trenches shall be backfilled as soon as possible after installation. All backfill material shall be free from cinders, ashes, refuse, vegetable or organic material, boulders, rocks or stones, frozen soil or other material that, in the opinion of the Town Engineer, is unsuitable.
(2) 
Selected well-graded material (two-inch maximum stone size) shall be used for backfilling under, adjacent to and for a depth of one foot over the pipes. It shall be placed in six-inch layers and thoroughly rammed and compacted in place. If at any location there is deficiency of suitable material for backfilling, the contractor shall furnish, at his expense, such suitable material from other parts of the work or from an outside source. The remainder of the trench shall be backfilled with available materials from excavation, placed and compacted so as to minimize settlement. No boulders or stones larger than eight inches in their maximum dimension shall be used in backfilling. Run-of-bank fill equal to New York State Item Granular Material Item 4 shall be used. The backfilling of all trenches under streets, driveways and sidewalks and adjacent to manholes and other structures shall be placed in six-inch layers and thoroughly compacted to the surface by mechanical tampers.
K. 
Separation between water and sewer mains.
(1) 
Water mains shall be laid at least 10 feet horizontally from any existing or proposed sewer. The distance shall be measured edge-to-edge. In cases where it is not practical to maintain a ten-foot separation, the Dutchess County Department of Health may allow deviation on a case-by-case basis. Such deviation may allow installation of the water main closer to a sewer, provided that the water main is laid in a separate trench or on an undisturbed earth shelf located on one side of the sewer at such an elevation that the bottom of the water main is at least 18 inches above the top of the sewer. Water mains crossing sewers shall be laid to provide a minimum vertical distance of 18 inches between the outside of the water main and the outside of the sewer. This shall be the case where the water main is either above or below the sewer. At crossings, one full length of water pipe shall be located so both joints have structural support for the water and sewer pipes which may be required by the Town Engineer.
(2) 
The Dutchess County Department of Health must specifically approve any variation from the above requirements when it is impossible to obtain the specified separation distances.
(3) 
No water pipe shall pass through or come in contact with any part of a sewer manhole.
A. 
General.
(1) 
Each separate building must have its own separate connection directly with the main, except that two or more buildings located on the same premises, which are owned by the same person, may be supplied with the same connection, provided that the single ownership remains.
(2) 
All water used on any premises or for any purpose whatsoever shall be metered.
(3) 
All street service connections shall be no less than three-fourths (3/4) inch.
B. 
Installation.
(1) 
All customer's service pipes shall be laid to provide a cover equal to that of the street service connection, but in no case shall the cover be less than four feet. The service shall be placed on firm and continuous earth so as to give unyielding and permanent support. Refer to sample drawings included at the end of this specification for typical installation details.
(2) 
All service lines shall extend from the service connection in the water main in the public way directly into the premises being installed and may not cross other adjacent private properties not owned by the customer.
(3) 
Corporation stops shall be tapped on the side of the water main, except in special circumstances and only with the approval of the Code Enforcement Officer and/or Town Engineer. The service line shall be looped for settlement and movement.
(4) 
The curb stop shall be placed at the property line or other convenient location approved by the Code Enforcement Officer and/or Town Engineer.
(5) 
No street or public place shall be opened by any person for the purpose of making a connection with the main or for laying of water pipes or fixtures unless permission shall have been granted by the authority having jurisdiction therein. A permit application, including an application fee in an amount set by the Town Board, must be filed with the Code Enforcement Officer. The Code Enforcement Officer must have one workday's notice prior to the start of any work.
(6) 
Whenever any street or public place shall have been opened for the purpose of making a connection with the mains or for laying of water pipes or fixtures, the applicant shall have proper regard for public safety and convenience and shall notify the appropriate Highway Department when backfill is completed so that the street or place may be restored to its original condition. Excavations shall be guarded with barricades, and sufficient warning lights shall be displayed at night by the applicant. The street must be kept open to traffic during construction.
(7) 
All materials from the trench excavation shall be loaded and removed from the site, and run-of-bank material, free from stone, one-half (1/2) cubic foot in size, shall be used for backfill for the excavation. The material shall be placed manually to one foot above the pipes, and the trench shall be mechanically tamped in two-foot layers. Excavated material may be used to backfill the trench only upon approval of the Code Enforcement Officer and/or Town Engineer.
(8) 
Any person performing work within the public way shall maintain insurances of the types and amounts established by the Town Board.
C. 
Internal plumbing.
(1) 
In all places where steam boilers, heating systems or hot-water tanks are supplied with water from the water systems, the customer must see that the plumber places a suitable safety valve, vacuum valve or other proper device to prevent damage from collapse or explosion when water is shut off.
(2) 
Where the chance of a health hazard contamination of the water supply exists through backflow or back-siphonage, an AWWA-approved reduced pressure backflow preventer will be installed.
D. 
Inspection.
(1) 
Notice must be given to the Code Enforcement Officer when any plumbing is ready for inspection, and the plumber doing the work shall furnish all of the necessary assistance or appliances therefor.
(2) 
The plumber shall remove or repair any defective material or labor when so ordered by the Code Enforcement Officer.
(3) 
Under no circumstances can any plumber or any of his employees doing the work of plumbing act as the agent or representative of the Code Enforcement Officer.
Flushing, hydrostatic and leakage testing shall conform to appropriate AWWA Standard C600 for Ductile-Iron Pipe and the following:
A. 
General.
(1) 
Testing is to be performed only after partial or complete backfill and restraint blocking using high-early-strength cement has had 36 hours to cure or blocking using standard cement has had seven days to cure.
(2) 
The contractor shall furnish and install, complete with reaction blocking, necessary plugs and caps required for this operation. Main line valves shall be utilized wherever possible to segregate test sections, except as directed by the Town Engineer or his representative.
(3) 
The contractor is to furnish all equipment and labor to complete testing.
(4) 
The main shall be partially backfilled or braced against movement during the test. All air must be bled out of the section to be tested. If necessary, the contractor shall install corporation stops at the high points for blowoffs. After all air has been expelled, the corporation cocks shall be closed and the pressure test applied. After examination of exposed parts of the system, the test pressure will be increased to one and one-half (11/2) times the normal pressure, based upon the elevation of the lowest point in the line or section under test, but such pressure shall not be less than 125 pounds per square inch or more than 200 pounds per square inch, and the exposed parts again examined. The minimum duration of the leakage test shall be two hours.
(5) 
Allowable system leakage shall be as specified in the referenced standards. If leakage in the system is greater than allowable, the contractor will locate and repair the system at his expense and retest; continue to test and repair the system until leakage is within allowable limits.
B. 
Flushing and disinfection. The contractor shall disinfect the pipeline in conformance with AWWA C651 (except that the tablet method described in Section 5.1 of C651 shall not be used) and in accordance with the following:
(1) 
Flushing. The contractor shall initially flush the pipeline completely, in sections, governed by the sources of clean water and suitable discharge points. The pipe section shall be flushed until the water runs clear. The contractor is advised that flushing may not create sufficient velocities to clear the pipeline of matter that may cause an unsatisfactory bacteriological test. Note that flushing is not a substitute for preventive measures during construction. Permission of the Town Engineer to stop flushing or directions to continue flushing shall involve no responsibility for the results of the bacteriological test.
(2) 
Procedure for disinfecting. The water injector for introducing the chlorine-bearing water into the pipe should be supplied from a tap on the pressure side of the gate valve controlling the flow into the pipeline extension.
(3) 
Rate of applications. Water from the existing distribution system or other source of supply shall be controlled so as to flow slowly into the newly laid pipeline during the application of chlorine. If the continuous-feed method permitted in C651 is utilized, the rate of chlorine mixture flow shall be in such proportion to the rate of water entering the pipe that the chlorine dose applied to the water entering the newly laid pipe shall produce at least 25 parts per million residual, with a reading of 10 parts per million after a twenty-four-hour period. If the slug method of C651 is utilized, the rate of chlorine mixture flow shall be in such proportion that the chlorine dose applied to the water entering the newly laid pipe shall produce at least 100 parts per million residual. The chlorine shall be applied continuously and for a sufficient period to develop a solid column or slug of chlorinated water that will, as it moves through the main, expose all interior surface to a concentration of approximately 100 milligrams per liter for at least three hours.
(4) 
Final flushing and testing. Following chlorination, all treated water shall be thoroughly flushed from the newly laid pipeline at its extremities until the replacement water throughout its entire length shall, upon testing, be proved comparable in quality to the water served the public from the existing water supply system and as approved by the public health authority having jurisdiction. Should the initial treatment fail to result in the conditions specified, the entire procedure shall be repeated until satisfactory results are obtained. The contractor is responsible to properly dispose of the chlorinated water. The environment to which the chlorinated water is to be discharged shall be inspected. If there is any question that the chlorinated discharge will cause damage to the environment, then a reducing agent shall be applied to the water to be wasted to neutralize thoroughly the chlorine residual remaining in the water. Where necessary, state and county agencies should be contacted to determine special provisions for the disposal of heavily chlorinated water.
(5) 
Bacteriological tests. The contractor shall make all arrangements with the Dutchess County Department of Health office for bacteriological tests and shall make the tests under its direction, if requested. The contractor shall furnish all equipment, disinfectants, piping, etc., required for the test. The pipelines shall be flushed and rechlorinated until satisfactory bacteriological sampling has been achieved. The contractor shall obtain certificates of satisfactory bacteriological tests and furnish them to the Town Engineer before the request is made for acceptance of the work.
(6) 
The contractor shall furnish all water for flushing, testing and disinfection. The contractor shall furnish all means and apparatus for getting the water into the pipelines and shall furnish, install and remove any additional temporary blowoff piping required to discharge water used for flushing, testing and disinfecting.
C. 
Inspection and acceptance of work.
(1) 
The contractor shall give the Town Engineer reasonable notice as to the time when he will be prepared to test portions of the work so that inspection of all testing and disinfection can be scheduled.
(2) 
Upon completion of work, the contractor will provide the Town Engineer with three sets of as-built plans of water lines, indicating valves, fittings and hydrants, with measurements. Upon receipt of this plan, an inspection of the work area will be made and any deficiencies corrected by the contractor prior to the Town of Pawling accepting the new line.
