Standard Specification for Storm Drain Resilient Connectors Between Reinforced Concrete Storm Sewer Structures, Pipes, and Laterals (Metric)
|Publication Date:||1 March 2007|
|ICS Code (Sewage water):||13.060.30|
1.1 This specification covers the minimum performance and material requirements for resilient connectors used for connections between precast reinforced concrete storm sewer structures conforming to Specification C 478 and pipes, and between precast reinforced concrete pipe and laterals for storm drainage systems.
1.1.1 These connectors are designed to prevent soil migration between the pipe and storm sewer structure, and between the pipe and lateral.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. This specification is the Metric counterpart of Specification C 1478.
This specification covers the design, material, and performance of the resilient connection only. Connections covered by this specification are adequate for hydrostatic pressures up to 41 kPa (4.3 m) without leakage when tested in accordance with Section . Infiltration quantities for an installed system are dependent upon many factors other than the connections between storm sewer structures and pipe, and allowable quantities must be covered by other specifications and suitable testing of the installed pipeline and system.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use. For a specific warning statement, see 7.2.4.
