Code: JSWFAccording to the industry guidelines in the ISGOTT Guide and assuming terminal regulations do not require otherwise, what action should be taken to drain accumulated water from the deck during cargo handling operations in rainy conditions?
The accumulated water is to be drained periodically and the scupper plugs to be immediately closed once the water has been run off. Water containing oily residues is to be transferred to a slop tank or other suitable receptacle.
The scupper plugs are to be kept closed and sealed; any volume of water that is not contained should be allowed to flood over the fishplate.
During periods of heavy rain, it is considered prudent and safe to allow water to drain continuously; therefore scupper plugs should be removed in such conditions.
The accumulated water is to be transferred to a spare tank.

Towards the upper part, stand as tall as possible and walk out.
