The report covers the testing and evaluation of a dewatering system to determine its suitability to remove rainwater from the top surface of hasty fuel storage reservoirs. The dewatering system was field tested with suitable pumping units employing a single- and a double-tube configuration under simulated heavy rainfall conditions. The test showed that with suitable pumping units, better dewatering results were obtained with a single-tube configuration than with a double-tube configuration. The test also showed that several factors in the dewatering system prevent successful dewatering operations on hasty fuel storage reservoirs under field conditions.
