Checking for sewer main and pump sump constructed under Ph 2 along Jln Tun Hussien Onn

Highway and Taman


1) Catchment I + H (Taman Puteri sewer area)
PE = 10,082
Peak flow = 4.7 x (PE/1000)-0.11 x 225 x PE l/day
= 8,268,694.24 l/day
q= 5.74 m3/min
q= 0.10 m3/s

Existing sewer main,


size , d = 0.35 m ===> 14 inches
slope, s= 0.006

Use nomograph,
Vfull = 1.2 m/s ( 3.94 ft/s)
Qfull = 0.12 m3/s ( 4.23 ft3/s)

q/Q full = 0.80 (if q/Q full >= 1.08, the gradient and/or size of sewer is to be increased)

0.35 m dia. sewer at a gradient of 0.006 shall be able to cater for 10,082 PE

2) Catchment I + H + G + F + E (Tun Hussein Onn road area, sewer main)


PE = 16071
Peak flow = 4.7 x (PE/1000)-0.11 x 225 x PE l/day
= 12,521,563.44 l/day
q= 8.70 m3/min
q= 0.14 m3/s

Existing sewer main,


size , d = 0.45 m ===> 18 inches
slope, s= 0.003

Use nomograph,
Vfull = 0.98 m/s ( 3.21 ft/s)
Qfull = 0.16 m3/s ( 5.65 ft3/s)

q/Q full = 0.91


v/Vfull = 1.13
v = 1.11 m/s >0.8 m/s
<4 m/s

0.45 m dia. sewer at a gradient of 0.003 shall be able to cater for 16,071 PE

Check for Pump Sump capacity under Ph. 1


1) Check for PS1
PE = 1264 (Yan Min & Sample Park Ph 1 & 2)
1825 (Taman Terus)
3089

Qav = new PE x 225 l/day


= 695,025.00 l/day
= 8.04 l/sec

Page 1
Qfull = 4.7 x (PE/1000)-0.11 x 225 x PE
= 2,885,481.63 l/day
= 33.40 l/sec

Existing PS1, L = 3 m
W= 3 m
D= 0.5 m
Volume = 4.5 m3
= 4500 litres
Pumping rate = 16.8 l/sec

Pump cycle time at Qav ,

T = Volume/Qav + Volume/(pumping rate-Qav)


= 1,073.35 sec
= 17.89 mins

No. of start per hour = 60/T


= 3.35 times

2) Check for PS3


PE = 26249 PE
Qav = PE x 225 l/day
= 5,906,025.00 l/day
= 68.36 l/sec

Qfull = 4.7 x (PE/1000)-0.11 x 225 x PE


= 19,377,187.20 l/day
= 224.27 l/sec

Existing PS3, L = 5 m
W = 4 m
D = 0.4 m
Volume = 8 m3
= 8000 litres
Pumping rate = 103.1 l/sec

Pump cycle time at Qav ,


T = Volume/Qav + Volume/(pumping rate-Qav)
= 347.29 sec
= 5.79 mins

No. of start per hour = 60/T


= 10.37 times

3) Check for PS4


PE = 16071 PE

Qav = PE x 225 l/day


= 3,615,975.00 l/day
= 41.85 l/sec

Page 2
Qfull = 4.7 x (PE/1000)-0.11 x 225 x PE
= 12,521,563.44 l/day
= 144.93 l/sec

Existing PS3, L = 5 m
W = 4 m
D = 0.5 m
Volume = 10 m3
= 10000 litres
Pumping rate = 103.1 l/sec

Pump cycle time at Qav ,


T = Volume/Qav + Volume/(pumping rate-Qav)
= 402.21 sec
= 6.70 mins

No. of start per hour = 60/T


= 8.95 times

4) Checking for 250mm DICL pipe after PS1(gravity flow)


Qav = 8.04 l/sec ( 0.008 m3/min)
Qpeak = 33.4 l/sec ( 0.03 m3/min) =q

S = 0.005
Dia. of pipe= 250 mm ( 10 inches)

From nomograph,
Vfull = 0.89 m/s
Qfull = 0.044 m3/min

q/Qfull = 0.75 => v/Vfull = 1.08


v = Vfull x 1.08
= 0.96 m/s >0.8 m/s
< 4 m/s
===>OK
