Make sure the trenches are dry, and use the mix straight out of the wagon, ie no added water and you should be okay.

If you need to add water on site for better flow/levelling can you not sheet over the foundations.

So if i pump out any water at the bottom of trench and see if i can get them to barrow without adding additional water or cover with tarpauling , then it should be okay (even if rain a few hours later?
