Chloride of lime shall be placed inside the isolated section of pipeline so as to achieve a concentration of free chlorine of at least 30 p.p.26/1 . all extraneous material must be removed with the excavation surfaces kept clear from the pipe body and flooding water pumped out. if these are not available. In this respect. To minimize the ingress of foreign matters into the mains.APPENDIX 22. a temporary sump a bit deeper than the pipe invert shall be excavated at the concerned location to collect the muddy water flowing out from the pipe for pumping to the nearby surface drainage system after passing through a filtering/sedimentation system. Adequate flushing shall be carried out before resumption of water supply. After the water supply has been isolated and the site is under control. Before the concerned section of the pipe is replaced.26 CLEANING AND STERILISATION OF EXISTING WATER MAINS (A) Cleaning and Sterilisation of Repaired Fresh Water Mains or Fresh Water Mains for Making Connections Every repaired main and every main into which an opening has been made for any cause whatsoever shall be cleaned and sterilised before putting back into operation. The procedures for flushing in Section (B) of this Appendix shall be followed.m. (2) (3) (4) PS-APP22. After the repair or connection has been made. The procedures of cleaning and sterilising the section of mains after repair or connection (concerned section) shall comply with the following as far as practicable:(1) After isolation of the mains on sloping ground.m. After charging with chlorinated water. the water in the isolated section shall be flushed out either through fire hydrants or washouts or. a small flow of water from the upstream end of the concerned section shall be maintained for a while (especially for small size main bursts) in order to wash out the foreign matters in the section of mains upstream. sterilisation shall be carried out on the whole section of the isolated mains by opening one of the isolating valves to fill up the pipe section. This is to prevent contaminated water from inadvertently entering the water mains through the opening and finding its way by gravity into the consumers’ inside services. the pipe section shall again be isolated. The internal surface of exposed pipe ends and the piece of pipe to replace the concerned section shall be cleaned with cloth and a solution of chloride of lime with concentration of free chlorine of at least 30 p. for that section of pipeline. After at least 30 minutes of soaking with chlorinated water. all tee branch valves downstream of the concerned section of the mains shall be turned off where practicable. through a submain temporarily put out of service. the concerned section shall be isolated by sandbags and the like immediately after the ponding water is pumped away.p.

SK 3939/1. If time does not permit two-way flushing.e. the isolation valve on the lower side shall always be opened first to force the trapped water out for flushing bearing in mind that contaminated water shall naturally gravitate to the lower part of the section of concerned pipe. through a submain temporarily put out of service. For single-end fed system. the mode of flushing operation will be dictated by the flow direction. If instructed by the Engineer. To ensure proper discharge of water from the hydrant outlet. and A display board shall be posted at the site to notify the public that maintenance and inspection works are in progress as shown in Sketch No. if the burst location is both-end fed. the Contractor shall take water samples and deliver them to locations notified by the Engineer for inspection or testing as appropriate.26/2 . two to three hydrants will be adequate for the flushing operation although more may be required for flushing large diameter pipes. downpipe and/or rubber hose for discharging the outflow water properly to nearby gullies or other drainage inlets without causing any inconvenience and danger to the pedestrian and motorists or flooding in the area. Normally. i. However. the flushing operation shall be carried out twice (once in each direction of flow) whenever time permits. The hydrant shall be attended by at least one worker when discharging water from the hydrant outlet. first with valve on the upper side closed and the valve on the lower side open and then the other way round. Washouts may also be used at the same time to clear the muddy water inside the pipes if necessary. (2) (3) (b) (c) PS-APP22. the following measures shall be adopted as appropriate unless agreed by the Engineer:(a) The hydrant outlet shall be fitted with a G. (B) Cleaning and Flushing Water Mains (1) The water in the concerned section of water mains shall be flushed out either through fire hydrants or washouts or. Flushing shall continue until the water coming out from the hydrants is found to be clean and is of a quality comparable with that drawn from the supply point.I. if these are not available. adequate flushing shall be carried out.(5) In case it is not possible to fill up the isolated section of pipeline for carrying out sterilisation to the concerned pipe due to the presence of a large number of tee connections with open ends along the pipeline or other valid reasons. This helps to better ensure complete cleaning of the isolated section of water mains.

the blue colour is to be removed. If the seal housing of the valve is found broken or loosen. Valves are mainly classified into two types: horizontal valves which are usually of size 600 mm and above and vertical valves which are usually of size equal and below 300 mm. If the valve is of vertical type. a visual inspection to the valve chamber and the valve should be conducted. A warning device should be placed inside the valve chamber in a conspicuous manner to warn others not to operate or touch the defective valve. However.6 m measured from the edges of the opening of the valve chamber shall be delineated by barriers/cones. To safeguard against injury by a water jet or loosened parts of a damaged valve flying out suddenly from the valve chamber. the neighbouring valves of the pipeline should be closed to de-pressurize the defective valve. particular care is warranted in closing a valve equipped with a non-rising spindle.27 GUIDANCE NOTES ON THE SAFE OPERATION OF VALVES As the components of valves are subject to high water pressure of the pipeline. both the horizontal and vertical types are common. Inspection before work 2. They will be reviewed and updated as necessary when more information is available or more experience is gained. the risk of the valve spindle from being dislocated from the wedge nut is slim due to the non-rising spindle design. If further inspection is necessary. Staff should be reminded to avoid having his body or head directly over the spindle of any defective vertical valve under pressure when carrying out work at or near the valve. the gang leader should arrange closing the neighbouring valves of the pipeline (immediately or when the term contractor start repairing works) for de-pressuring the defective valve for carrying out immediate emergency repair of the valve even though no water is seen oozing out from the valve chamber. no further operation on the valve should be proceeded. The gang leader should arrange immediate putting back the valve chamber cover. a no entry zone of a minimum size covering the area within 0. care should be taken in the operation of valves to prevent undue stress or damage to them. No one. Designation of No-entry Zone during valve operations 1. The valve chamber cover shall be marked with a “blue cross” and the frame of the cover shall also be painted in blue to give warning to all staff involved. as far as the site conditions permit. detaching the spindle from the wedge nut and damaging/lifting the seal housing of the valve . For valves of size 400 mm and 450 mm. (Upon replacement of the valve. Warnings for defective valves 3. The gang leader should report the incident to the inspectorate officer for planned repair/replacement of the defective valve.) PS-APP.27/1 . except those performing the valve operation or carrying out essential official duties shall be allowed to enter the zone. The following guidance notes are prepared in response to a recent valve failure at Heng Fa Chuen. Before any work is carrying out at a valve.APPENDIX 22. A valve being open is less susceptible to blow-out incidents because when the gate is being raised.22. Vertical valves are of more concern from a safety point of view as their spindle may be blown out if the valve is improperly operated to an extent of breaking or loosening the holding down bolts and nuts.

When the upper part of the valve is exposed and found to be intact. It is of paramount importance that no excessive torque is applied in operating the valve in order to avoid excessive stress exerted to the valve gate. What to do when a valve is possibly damaged during operation 7. the gang leader should stop operating the valve and report the incident for planned repair/replacement of the defective valve as necessary. Moreover. it must be fully inserted into the turning rod on each end and its length should not be longer than 1m. a steady amount of torque should be applied throughout the process. the valve spindle has probably somehow been detached from the wedge nut. spindle and other components of the valve. Routine valve exercising 9.22. Valve key with shear pin coupling should be used for closing valve of size ranging from 350mm to 550mm to protect the valve from being damaged by excessive torque.27/2 . The valve key should then be turned in the opposite (reversed) direction for a few turns to re-screw the valve spindle back into the gate nut. 6. opportunity should be taken to inspect the conditions of the valve. However. Labels for odd valves 10. the closed neighbouring valves should be opened to resume water supply temporarily to the customers and the concrete breaking works may then continue. Besides. As a precautionary measure. If unsuccessful and the valve is of vertical type. the direction of closing/opening the valves should be clearly indicated at a conspicuous position at the valves. the gang leader should arrange for closing the neighbouring valves of the pipeline to depressurise the defective valve for carrying out immediate emergency repair of the valve. In case of doubt about the condition of the valve to be replaced. Avoiding excessive torque in valve operations 5. seal housing. For these odd valves. Otherwise. gears. the gang leader should always arrange for closing the neighbouring valves of the pipeline for de-pressurising the defective valve before breaking the concrete encasing the valve. only 2 operators are allowed to operate the valve at any one time. Precautions for replacing defective valves 8. No valve exercising should be carried out unless it is confirmed that the valve defect as recorded in the previous valve exercising has been rectified. If the valve operation requires the addition of extension bar. PS-APP.Avoiding damage to valves during valve closure 4. the valve must first be replaced and water supply suspension resulting from it has to continue until the completion of the valve replacement work. Any defects identified shall be reported to the inspectorate officer for prompt repair. In the event that the resistance of the turning rod is suddenly drastically reduced during valve closure. If successful. In closing a valve. which should subsequently be washed upon valve replacement. there are exceptions in particular those installed a long time ago. The majority of valves are closed in clockwise direction. when carrying out planned valve operation. the person responsible for valve exercising shall make reference to the previous valve exercising report before carrying out any valve exercising operation. The valve cover should be marked with a blue cross.

the number of revolutions required for fully opening or closing a DN800 mm geared gate valve can be as high as 1100 due to gearing effect. (3) Use of Valve Actuator for Valve Operation If a valve actuator is used for valve operation. PS-APP22. whenever practicable. under emergency condition. set the torque value ≼the maximum torque and follow the guidelines on the use of generator and valve actuator. (4) Closing a Gate Valve To close a gate valve (assuming that the valve is not fully opened). In view of this.28/1 .28 GUIDELINES FOR OPERATION OF GATE VALVES IN PLANNED OPERATIONS The following guidelines are good practices for the operation of gate valves in planned operations. For example. the approximate number of revolutions required for fully opening or fully closing an ungeared gate valve can be assessed by the following formula: No of revolution = 1 + 2 x (valve size in inches)] Size of Valve (mm) DN150 DN200 DN250 DN300 DN400 DN450 DN600 DN800 DN1000 DN1200 (2) Size of Valve (Inch) 6 8 10 12 16 18 24 32 40 48 No. of Revolutions required 13 17 21 25 33 37 49 65 81 97 Operation of Geared Gate Valves The number of revolutions required for fully opening or fully closing a geared gate valve depends on its gear ratio. They should also be followed.APPENDIX 22. (1) Operation of Ungeared Gate Valves In general. the regional staff should record the number of revolutions required for fully opening or fully closing the geared gate valves for future reference.

and use a listening stick if practicable to confirm that the valve is opened. further opening of the valve should be done manually.(i) use a listening stick if practicable or use the fire hydrant if there is one nearby to confirm that water is flowing through the valve to be closed. the operator should feel the resisting torque in order to apply the final gentle touch to fully open the valve. be cautious when the valve is about to be fully closed. exert a steady torque for 5 or more revolutions in the closing direction.28/2 . paragraph (2) above for geared gate valves or the number of revolutions recorded by the Regional staff as appropriate. of revolutions specified in paragraph (1) above for ungeared gate valves. reverse the turning direction until the valve is fully opened. reverse the turning direction for 2 to 4 revolutions after closing every 5 or 10 revolutions.
