When handling wastewater components, particularly hoses and the
chopper tube/wand, wear gloves, apron, eye protection and
respirator to prevent serious illness due to contamination. Prevent
spills by draining hoses into the wastewater source before storing
them on the trailer. Rinse the intake and drain valve as well as the
rear platform and equipment trays on a daily basis with freshwater
when the WWET/T is in use. Serious health problems may result
from contaminated components.
29. Open drain on moisture trap (figure 31, item 1) and oil catch muffler (figure 31, item 2). Observe
discharge. An excessive amount of moisture draining from the trap or oil catch muffler indicate
problems with the primary shutoff, requiring service. (Refer to WP 0019 00).
30. Clean equipment tray using sludge rake (figure 30, item 1) and freshwater. Dispose of waste in an
approved treatment system or waste disposal site in accordance with host nation, local, or unit
procedures designed to protect human health and the environment.
