CITY YO MW i/ t..<3--0-7.-e-,\ rX. 2 //9 1/ By: Crairosser, City Manager Date WYATT It i%' 6 T ;INC. / -.AI mr , By: Co / actor's Name Date City of Tigard Personal Service Agreement Fire Hydrant Flow Testing Page 11 of 14 EXHIBIT A SERVICES TO BE PROVIDED SCOPE AND SCHEDULE OF WORK The proposed scope of services includes hydrant flow testing of requested City hydrants and shall include the following activities: .1. Hydrant Flow Testing: Field test fire hydrants per each project as requested and record the following: - Static pressure for each fire hydrant. - Residual pressure for each fire hydrant. - Flow in gallons per minute for each hydrant. • The amount of time taken to flush each hydrant and estimate amount of water used during the operation of each hydrant test. - Fire hydrant nozzle size used for each test. - Record and report any repair, painting, color- coding or operation defects for each fire •. Record and report any repairs required, painting, color - coding or operational defects for each fire hydrant. - The location and address of each hydrant. - The date tested and technicians operating the fire hydrant. • Hydrants not meeting the pressure or flow requirements shall be recorded and brought to the attention of the Utility Division Manger. Final Report for each fire hydrant flow test requested shall be provided within 5 days to the City. Proposals for this bid must present evidence of the firm's qualifications and experience with similar fire hydrant flow testing equipment and calculations used in water distribution system operations. The City shall notify the contractor 48 hours in advance requesting fire flow testing. The City shall provide City staff to witness the fire flow test and operate any valves necessary to complete the test. "As needed" basis shall be determined by land use permitting requirements pertaining to fire hydrant flow test to determine the current availability of water supply for each permit. The information derived from these tests will be recorded and maintained by the City for identification and planning for future improvements to the water system. Fire -flow tests shall be conducted in accordance with the procedure outlined in AWWA M -17, Chapter 6. Flow test reports shall be provided to the City within 5 days after each test is conducted by the contractor. The proper method of conducting a fire hydrant flow test is to use two hydrants in the vicinity of the property. The static pressure should be measured on the hydrant in front of or nearest to the property and the water allowed to flow from the hydrant next nearest the property, preferably the one farthest from the source of supply if the main is fed only one way. The residual pressure will be that indicated at the hydrant where water is not flowing. Referring to Figure 1, the method of conducting the flow tests is as follows; City of Tigard Personal Service Agreement Fire Hydrant Flow Testing Page 12 of 14 City Fire Hydrant Flow Test Procedure 1. All flow tests shall be conducted during normal business hours. Peak water demand, if required for test reporting purposes for the City of Tigard has been determined by the Public Works Department to be Monday thru Friday between the hours of 6:30 am and 7:30 am. 2. All necessary precautions shall be taken to avoid any damage that the flow test may incur. It is the responsibility of the contractor conducting the flow test to cleanup and or repair any damage that occurs from improperly operating fire hydrants during flow tests. 3. Open a 2.5 inch discharge outlet and flow water from the hydrant. Flow hydrant until the water is clear. 4. Attach a gauge to the 2.5 inch discharge outlet on the hydrant in front of or nearest to the property. 5. Ensure all caps not in use for test on the fire hydrant are tight and secure before opening any fire hydrant. 6. Fully open the hydrant to obtain static pressure. 7. Attach an approved flow test diffuser* to one of the 2.5 inch discharge outlets of the flow hydrant. *flow test diffuser - An approved flow test diffuser is a special tool that is specifically designed for conducting fire hydrant flow tests. It has a built -in pitot tube and pressure gauge. By diffusing the water flowing from the hydrant it minimizes water damage. Because this device is firmly affixed to the flow hydrant it will produce a more accurate reading of the pitot pressure than that of old conventional hand held methods of flow testing. In short, a very accurate and dependable test result is produced when the flow test diffuser is used to conduct the fire hydrant flow test. 8. Completely open the flow hydrant and read and record the pressure at both hydrants. 9. When flow hydrant is completely opened read the gauge of the hydrant in front of or nearest to the property to obtain and record the residual pressure. 10. When flow hydrant is completely opened read the gauge of the flow hydrant to obtain the pitot pressure. The pitot pressure will be used to compute the gallons per minute of water flowing. 1 1 . Upon completion of the test, contractor shall fax a computer generated graph indicating gallons that will flow at 20psi after fire hydrant flow test has been completed. Fax the graph to 503 684- 6840 to the attention of the City inspector whom witnessed the flow test. NOTE: The contractor shall be responsible for the safety of the general public and employees during the hydrant flow - testing, the proper diversion of water into the right of way and insuring that all rules and regulations regarding the discharge of chlorinated water into waterways are adhered to.
