1 Foreword
The new edition of ATV-DVWK Standard A 139E presented here contains thesupplementary information and more extensive comments on DIN EN 1610, which areheld to be necessary by the specialist circles involved.Prerequisite for a long-term functional and watertight sewer network is, in addition to theemployment of suitable and resistant materials, above all, the correct production of thesewers and drains.The solution to be sought is be an overall economically optimised solution. In addition toinvestment costs the operating costs and the service life are to be taken into account.The recycling of the components and materials used should be considered in theplanning.Based on the Mandate of the Commission of the European Community and, equally, onthat of EFTA dated 24 May 1991, CEN (Comité Européen de Normalisation) has takenon the task of aligning all technical rules within the field of wastewater technology and of elaborating European Standard Specifications for the defined areas and products. In themeantime these tasks have very extensively been completed with the inclusion of thetechnical rules for the laying and testing of drains and sewers outside buildings.In Germany, in addition to DIN 4033, ATV Standard ATV-A 139 "Standards for theFabrication of Sewers and Drains" (October 1988 Edition) were available for this andwere introduced as a basis for discussion within the framework of the work of theresponsible CEN Technical Committee, TC 165 - Wastewater Technology, hereafter WG10/TG2. The result of the work at CEN level consists of the accepted and, in Germany,as DIN EN Standard Specification converted document DIN EN 1610 "Laying and testingof drains and sewers" (October 1997), whose contents thus describe the generallyrecognised status of technology in Europe.As a supplement it is possible to formulate statements which are not or not completelycontained in European standards, in order to cover the necessary national contents.DIN EN 1610 "Laying and testing of sewers and drains" lays down requirements on thecorrect production and testing of drains and sewers.The Standard presented here is to aid the planning engineer in recognising the existingleeway present in DIN EN 1610 and to use it creatively. It is to ease the utilisation andinterpretation in DIN EN 1610.The Standard contains supplements and notes for the installation of pipes, their testing,on materials used as well as the acceptance of the structure. The requirements onqualification of the executing firm are equally defined.In order to ensure uniformity of text, some repeating of the text of statements from DINEN 1610 is necessary.Appendices A and B contain requirements on model installation instructions as well asinformation on economic aspects.
