3 SECTION 1. TESTING OF PUBLIC SANITARY SEWER SYSTEMS A. Infiltration 1. Objective This procedure establishes the method(s) to be used for the testing of the sanitary sewer systems. 2. Purpose The purpose of this procedure is to establish a uniform method and practice in testing sanitary sewers for infiltration when ground water is present. 3. Infiltration Test Procedures * The test shall be performed in the presence of the MUA Inspector. a. Examine the sanitary sewer system for infiltration at the downstream end of the system after construction has been completed and prior to any sanitary building connections. b. In the event that there is infiltration and water is flowing at the downstream end of the system, then the source of flow must be determined. c. To isolate the source, it is necessary to go upstream one manhole at a time, to find where the flow is originating. This is done by plugging the first upstream manhole and observing to see if the flow stops. This procedure is repeated one manhole act a time until the infiltration has been isolated. d. When the infiltration has been isolated to a section or area, further investigation by the Contractor will be required to eliminate the infiltration. e. Allowable infiltration shall not exceed a rate of 50 gallons per mile, per inch of sewer diameter per 24 hours. B. Exfiltration (Air Test) 1. Objective This procedure establishes the method(s) to be used for the testing of the sanitary sewer systems.
4 2. Purpose The purpose of this procedure is to establish a uniform method and practice in testing sanitary sewers for exfiltration. 3. Exfiltration (Air Test) Procedures * The test shall be performed in the presence of the MUA Inspector. a. The low pressure air test is the most desirable method of testing and should be used when possible. The low pressure air test is very fast, and isolation of leaks is very precise. b. Prior to the start of the exfiltration test, all construction work for the system under test shall be completed. This includes backfilling and completion of all manholes. Installation of the curbing and stabilized base course must be completed prior to testing. c. Low pressure air test (4.0) to be conducted between two consecutive manholes, as directed by the MUA Inspector. d. The test section of the sewer line is plugged at each end. One of the plugs used at the manhole must be tapped and equipped for the air inlet connection for filling the line from the air compressor. e. All service laterals, stubs and fittings into the sewer test section should be properly capped or plugged, and carefully braced against the internal pressure to prevent air leakage by slippage and blowouts. f. Connect air hose to tapped plug selected for the air inlet. Then connect the other end of the air hose to the portable air control equipment which consists of valves and pressure gauges used to control: 1. The air entry rate to the sewer test section, and 2. To monitor the air pressure in the pipe line. g. More specifically, the air control equipment includes a shut-off valve, pressure regulating valve, pressure reduction valve and a monitoring pressure gauge having a pressure range from 0 to 5+ psi. The gauge should have a minimum division of 0.10 psi and an accuracy of psi. See Figure No. 1 for typical control equipment apparatus. h. Connect another air hose between the air compressor (or other source of compressed air) and the air control equipment. This completes the test equipment set-up. Subsequent to set-up, test operation may commence.
5 i. Supply air to the test section slowly, filling the pipe line until a constant pressure of 4.0 psig is maintained. The air pressure must be regulated to prevent the pressure inside the pipe from exceeding a dangerously high level of air pressure. j. When constant pressure of 4.0 psig is reached, throttle the air supply to maintain the internal pressure above 3.5 psig for at least 5 minutes. This time permits the temperature of the entering air to equalize with the temperature of the pipe wall. During this stabilization period, it is advisable to check all capped and plugged fittings with a soap solution to detect any leakage at these connections. If leakage is detected at any cap or plug, release the pressure in the line and tighten all leaky caps or plugs. Then start the test operation again by supplying air. When it is necessary to bleed off the air to tighten or repair a faulty plug, a new five minute interval must be allowed after the pipe line has been refilled. k. After the stabilization period, adjust the air pressure to 4.0 psig and shut off or disconnect the air supply. Most Authorities consider it unnecessary to determine the air temperature inside the pipe line and the barometric pressure at the time of the test unless so ordered by the Authority's Engineer. l. If the air pressure drops but remains above 3.5 psig. (3.5 psig being the cut off) and does not exceed the starting pressure of 4.0 psig in the allowable time, in minutes and seconds, shown in Table 1 for the designated pipe size, the section be presumed to be free of defects. The test may be discontinued at that time. m. If the air pressure drops below 3.5 psig in the allowable time, in minutes and seconds, shown in Table 1 for the designated pipe size, the section undergoing the test shall not have passed the test; therefore, adequate repairs must be made and the line retested.

9 To: Logan Township Municipal Utilities Authority PO Box 71 Jefferson Lane Bridgeport, NJ Reference: Project Section As-Built Sanitary Sewer This is to inform you that the sanitary sewer mains referred to above have been pressure tested and tamped in accordance with the project specifications. A final inspection will be performed when the developer requests a release from the Performance Bond. Sincerely, Signature Company cc Executive Director, Logan Township MUA Authority Engineer
10 a. Determine air pressure correction, which must be added to the 4.0 psig normal starting pressure of test, by dividing the vertical height in feet by The result gives the air pressure correction in pounds per square inch to be added. Example: If the vertical height of water from the sewer invert to the top of the water column measures feet, the additional air pressure required would be: (11.55) = 5 psig 2.31 Therefore, the starting pressure of the test would be 4.0 plus 5.0 or 9.0 psig, and the one half pound drop becomes 8.5 psig. There is no change in the allowable drop (0.5 psig) or in the time requirements established for the basic air test. C. Pipe Alignment (Lamp Test). 1. Objective This procedure established the method(s) to be used for the testing of the sanitary sewer systems. 2. Purpose The purpose of this procedure is to establish a uniform method and practice in testing sanitary sewers for alignment. 3. Pipe Alignment (Lamp Test) Procedures, * The test shall be performed in the presence of the MUA Inspector. a. Alignment (tamp test) shall be done on all gravity sanitary sewer lines. b. Alignment consists of visually examining inside of pipe between two consecutive manholes with the aid of a light and mirror. c. A mirror is held at the invert of the pipe and adjusted so the light and barrel of pipe can be seen. d. The barrel of the pipe shall have no vertical deflection and at least 75% of the barrel shall be visible in the horizontal direction.
11 Vertical Horizontal e. In the event that alignment shows the pipe not laid true and to grade, it shall be repaired and be aligned as necessary until the alignment complies with these requirements. D. Television Inspection 1. Objective This procedure establishes the method(s) to be used for the televising of sanitary sewer systems. 2. Purpose The purpose of this procedure is to establish a uniform method and practice in testing sanitary sewers for defects via, television inspection. 3. Television Inspection Procedures * The test will be performed by the MUA prior to final acceptance of the sanitary sewer system. The MUA maintains the option to require the Contractor to perform the testing. a. Television inspection will be employed as the method of final inspection of the completed gravity sewer mains. The Contractor shall furnish a complete portable closed-circuit television system for visual inspection of the interior of the sewers. b. The system to be furnished by the Contractor shall include all required television equipment, related equipment, electrical power to operate the
12 equipment, trained personal, and all floats, cables, reels, footage, counting devices, lights and other materials necessary to perform the inspection. c. The equipment used shall produce a clear, sharp image on the monitor screen. Any equipment not producing a satisfactory result on the monitor screen shall be replaced with another unit. The personnel operating the equipment shall be thoroughly familiar with the operation of the equipment and in interpreting the visual results obtained. d. Any irregularities in the pipe such as cracks, misalignment (horizontal or vertical) or poor joints, shall be corrected by the Contractor at his expense prior to acceptance of the project or for final payment. e. Contractor shall provide all information on attached televised inspection form. Alternate report format may be accepted if all requested information is clearly presented. f. 'The Authority or the Authority Engineer, has the right to waive the television inspection, if all other forms of testing meet the proper specifications. *NOTE 1. Other methods of testing gravity sanitary sewer lines may be used, however, prior approval of the Authority Engineer, in writing, must be obtained prior to the test being performed. 2. The MUA Inspector may request a mandrel test to be performed, if not satisfied with other forms of testing and/or the construction practices in the field. 3. The Contractor shall comply with all OSHA requirements for confined space entry during testing operations. SECTION Il. TESTING OF PUBLIC FORCE MAINS & PRESSURE LINE SYSTEMS A. Exfiltration (Pressure Test) 1. Objective This procedure establishes the method(s) to be used for the testing of public force main. 2. Purpose The purpose of this procedure is to establish a uniform method and practice in testing public force main for exfiltration.
13 3. Exfiltration (Pressure Test) Procedures * The test shall be performed in the presence of the MUA Inspector. a. After the pipe has been laid or installed, it shall be subjected to a pressure and leakage test. For pressure piping, this shall be conducted prior to the complete backfilling of the trench, unless otherwise permitted by the MUA Inspector, and for pressure piping in structures, this shall be conducted prior to the completion of any construction which would make it impossible or difficult to gain access to the pipe if found defective. The Contractor shall test sections of the pipes between valves, where practicable or where ordered by the MUA Inspector. b. The Contractor shall make the necessary arrangements with the Authority for the procurement of water for the pressure and leakage tests, and shall furnish the necessary labor, pumps, valves, pressure gauges, water meters and all other equipment required for this purpose. Each section of pipe, with water services installed, shall be subjected to a hydrostatic pressure of 50 PSI or 2 times the operating pressure, whichever is greater, and maintained for a period of two (2) hours. c. When the test pressure has been reached, the amount of make-up water to maintain the test pressure shall be measured. Leakage shall be defined as the quantity of water that must be supplied into the newly installed pipe or any valved section thereof to maintain pressure within 5 psi of the specified test pressure after the pipe has been filled with water and the air has been expelled. Leakage shall not be measured by a drop in pressure in a test section over a period of time. d. No pipe installation will be accepted if the leakage is greater than that determined by the following formula: When using 5 gallons of water in a bucket for make-up water: (1) Measure H (2) Measure h2 (5 gals.) - (h2/h) X (5 gals.) = Gallons of Water Lost Where H is the original height of water in the bucket and h 2 is the height of water in the bucket at the end of the 2 hr test. e. Allowable exfiltration rate is determined below (1) Gallons of water lost over 2 hr test x 12 = gallons loss/day
14 (2) Miles of Pipe Tested = (force main test length in feet) / (5280 feet/mile) (Gallons loss/day) / (Miles of Pipe Tested) = Gallons loss/mile/day (3) (Gallons loss/mile/day) /(Pipe diameter in inches) = Exfiltration in gallons/inch dia./mile/day *Allowable exfiltration rate is 50 gallons/inch dia./mile/day Example: Test Pressure = 2 x TDH x Total Dynamic Head (TDH) = 130 Test Pressure = 90 PSI *NOTE: Other methods of testing public force mains and/or pressure lines may be used; however, prior approval of the Authority Engineer, in writing, must be obtained prior to the test being performed.
15 FORCE MAIN INSPECTION DATE: PROJECT: CONTRACTOR: FOREMAN: LOCATION: EXFILTRATION TEST All force mains shall be subjected to a hydrostatic pressure 50 PSI or 2 times the operating pressure whichever is greater or as required by specifications and maintained for a period of one (1) hour.
