1.1 This test method is used to determine the flow rate of water and suspended solids through a geosynthetic permeable closed bag used to contain high water content slurry such as dredged material.

1.2 The results for the water and sediment that pass through the geotextile bag are shown as liters of water per time period, and the percent total suspended solids in milligrams per liter or parts per million.

1.3 The flow rate is the average rate of passage of a quantity of solids and water through the bag over a specific time period.

1.4 This test method requires several pieces of specified equipment such as an integrated water sampler, analytical balance, geotextile bag, stand clear PVC pipes, testing frame, and clean containers to collect the decant water and a representative sample of high water content material from the proposed dredge area or slurry source.

1.5 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.6  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 limitations prior to use.
