This lack of uniformity creates complication regarding measurements and payments. In measurement of quantities in construction of river valley projects a large diversity of methods exist at present according to local practices.Measurement of Works of River Valley Projects Sectional Committee. . There is no ISO standard on the subject. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard. expressing the result of a test or analysis. This standard is intended to provide a uniform basis for measurement of dewatering items in the construction of river valley projects. the final value. This standard has been revised to incorporate the latest trend prevalent in the field. observed or calculated. For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with. The composition of the Committee responsible for the formulation of this standard is given in Annex A. shall be rounded off in accordance witkl IS 2:1960 ‘Rules for rounding off numerical values (revised)’. WRD 23 FOREWORD This Indian Standard (Part 2) (First Revision) was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards. This standard has been prepared based on indigenous manufacturers’ data/practices prevalent in the field in India. after the draft finalized by the Measurement of Works of River Valley Projects Sectional Committee had been approved by the Water Resources Division Council.

3. 3. freezing.5 Cost of all pumping.3. 3.2 The unit of measurement in case of dewatering by electrical pumps shall be kilowatt-hour (Kwh).1 In order to drain water out of the site of work and to maintain the site of work in a normally dry condition. whichever may apply.3. b) Diesel pumps. 2 GENERAL 2. 3.IS 9401 (Part 2) :2003 Indian Standard METHOD OF MEASUREMENT OF WORKS IN RIVER VALLEY PROJECTS (DAMS AND APPURTENANT STRUCTURES) PART 2 DEWATERING ( First Revision ) 1 SCOPE This Standard (Part 2) covers the method of measurement of dewatering works in river valley project (dams and appurtenant structures).3 Dewatering has to be done with utmost care and caution so that there is no bailing. 2. Where several pumps are installed at the same site.1. 1 OF MEASUREMENT 3.2 Dewatering maybe done either by manual labour or pumps. and c) Pneumatic pumps.1 The unit of measurement shall be in man days if dewatering is done by manual labour. adequate measures are required to be taken.1.3. electro-osmosis. constructing diversion channels/drains. 3. The pump capacity will be measured at the outlet of the installed pipeline. heaving up or displacement of materials below the foundation level of structure to be newly constructed or already constructed. 3.3 Dewatering by Means of Pumps 3.1 Dewatenng by means of pumps maybe done by any one of the following methods : a) Electrical pumps. 2.4 The free water surface of depleted water table shall not be less than 150 mm below the deepest subgrade level of the structure and 1000 mm in case of fill placement in core trench.2 Each pump installed shall undergo a weekly trial testing to demonstrate that it is actually discharging the water at its rated capacity and head. etc. draining.1 General 3. or until the time of the last pump testing.2.3. cost of Iabour. machinery and equipments shall be included in dewatering. bailing out or any other works to de water the foundation area during the entire period of execution of work including design of dewatering system. 2. 3. where further activities of work can be taken up during the entire period of execution of the work. The method of dewatering to be adopted shall have the approval of the Engineer-in-Charge. Lowering of water table by dewatering shall be done gradually. .1. Meters shall be calibrated and tested before installation and test report submitted to the Engineer-in-Charge prior to installation. coffer dams. 3 METHOD 3.2 There are various methods of dewatering.3 The unit of measurement in case of dewatering by diesel pumps shall be horsepower-hour.3.4 The unit of me~urement in case of dewatering by pneumatic pumps shall be cubic metre of air per hour (m3/h). In the event of any of the dewatering pumps consume energy/fuel/air in excess of the values specified by the manufacturer the same shall be repaired and replaced by without delay. 2. such as bailing out. pumping as also well point system.1 It shall be ensured that pumps for dewatering perform in accordance with manufacturer’s specifications. the weighted average of the capacity of all installed pumps shall be calculated and the unit price proportionately reduced. If significant deviations (more than 10 percent below) are discovered the unit price for pumping through that pump will be proportionately reduced for the period of the past 7 days.1 Dewatering may be included in the item of excavation or masonry or concrete work in foundation and in such a case measurement shall not be made separately for dewatering.
