Tank Draining Operation
To drain the WWET/T tank, proceed as follows: 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.
When handling wastewater components, particularly hoses and the
chopper tube/wand, wear gloves, apron, eye protection and
respiratory protection 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.
1. Position the WWET/T not more than fifteen feet from the designated disposal point.
2. Remove 4-inch x 10-foot drain hoses (figure 32, item 1) from hose hooks and equipment trays.
3. Connect two 4-inch x 10-foot drain hoses in series (figure 32, item 2) as shown.
