Takeoff charts from wet rwys take into account the use of reverse thrust + a 15 feet screen height at end of the rwy, instead of 35, used for dry rwys.This may produce, some times,a higher MTOW than that calculated for a dry rwy.Thus, you must compare dry and wet charts and retain the lowest value for MTOW, keeping ,though, the calculated speeds for wet rwys.You won't need to do this if the top of the wet rwy chart specifies DRY CHECK.Means it's already been taken into account.
