This is considered when the drawdown is 2 . various works needs to be done and items controlled. Stops in the filling is done to record the drawdown over time. and to obtain the average filling speed. not exceeding an average pressure increase of 5 m/hour. • Increasing the water level to the next stop may take place when the water drawdown is levelling out. one pump is spare for the other.
