pursue its own protest.
6.5 The procedure and time limits set forth in this Section are mandatory and are the
Bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy in the event of a Bid Protest. The Bidder’s failure
to fully comply with these procedures shall constitute a waiver of any right to further

Government Code, or filing of any other legal proceedings.

consideration of the award of the bid, the District Board shall also consider the merits
of any timely protests. The District Board may either accept the protest and award the
bid to the next lowest responsible bidder or reject the protest and award to the lowest
responsible bidder. Nothing in this section shall be construed as a waiver of the
District Board’s right to reject all bids.
6.7 The District reserves the right to waive any bid irregularities not affecting the amount of
the bid, except where such waiver would give the low bidder an advantage or benefit
not allowed other bidders.
7. AWARD
7.1 In accordance with applicable law, the District reserves the right to reject any or all bids
and to waive any informality in any bid. The District reserves the right to accept any
portion of any bid, unless the bid package expressly provides that the award will be
made as a whole. If the District elects to award a contract for performance of the
Project, the contract will be awarded in accordance with California Public Contract
Code Section 20803 and other applicable law to the responsible bidder submitting a
responsive bid with the lowest total bid price for the base bid and the additive or

will issue to the successful bidder a Notice to Proceed specifying the Project

total listed for that bid item (e.g., if the total listed for a bid item does not equal the unit
price listed in the bid multiplied by the quantity listed), subject to applicable law, the unit
price will be deemed to accurately reflect the bidder’s intent concerning the bid item
and the intended total for the bid item will be deemed to be the unit price as listed in
the bid multiplied by the quantity listed.
8.2 If the Project bid price is a lump sum total made up of smaller individual bid item prices
and an inconsistency exists between the lump sum total bid price and any individual
bid item price, subject to applicable law, the individual bid item prices as listed in the
bid will be deemed to accurately reflect the bidder’s intended bid for the Project and the
intended lump sum total bid for the Project will be deemed to be the sum of the
individual bid item prices as listed in the bid, even if that sum is different from the
amount actually listed as the lump sum total bid for the Project.
8.3 Any federal, state, or local tax payable on articles to be furnished for the Project shall
be included in the lump sum total bid price and paid by the Contractor under the
contract.
9. QUANTITIES
9.1 Quantities, including but not limited to, material or labor quantities, that are provided in
the bid package concerning the Project are estimates only and are provided solely as a
general indication of the Project scope. The District does not warrant that such
quantity estimates provided in the bid package represent the actual quantities required
to perform the Project in accordance with the Contract Documents. Such quantity
estimates do not bind the District, and bidders should not rely on them in preparing

light of information contained in the bid package and any amendments or addenda to
the bid package, bidder investigation and analysis of the Project as amended,
decreased or increased, the Project site, and any other analysis or expertise of the
bidder concerning the Project.
10. SUBSTITUTION OF “OR EQUAL” ITEMS
10.1 In accordance with California Public Contract Code Section 3400, where the Drawings
list products by manufacturer's name, brand or model number such information
indicates the quality and utility of the items desired and does not restrict bidders to that
manufacturer's name, brand or model number, unless the Technical Specifications or
Drawings specify that the listed product is necessary to match others in use on a
particular public improvement either completed or in the course of completion. Except
where the Specifications indicate that a particular brand product is necessary to match
others in use, when a manufacturer’s name, brand or model number is listed, it shall be
construed to be followed by the words "or equal" whether or not those words in fact
follow the manufacturer’s name, brand name or model number listed in the Technical
Specifications or Drawings. Unless the Technical Specifications or Drawings indicate
that a particular brand product is necessary to match others in use, bidders may
propose equals of products listed by manufacturer name, brand name or model
number.
10.2 Complete information for products proposed as equals must be submitted to the
District Engineer for review at least seven (7) calendar days before the time specified
for opening bids. To be considered, proposals concerning products proposed as
equals must include sufficient information to permit the District to determine whether
the products proposed as equals will satisfy the same performance requirements as
products listed by manufacturer’s name, brand or model number. Such performance
requirements may include, but are not limited to, size, strength, function, appearance,
ease of maintenance and repair, and useful life requirements. Proposals concerning
products proposed as equals that are submitted less than seven (7) calendar days
before the time specified for opening bids will not be considered. Failure to bid
products specified by manufacturer name, brand name or model number where the
Technical Specifications or Drawings specify that a particular product is necessary to
match others in use, or where no proposal concerning products proposed as equals
has been submitted in accordance with this provision may render a bid non-responsive.
11. SUBCONTRACTING
11.1 Bids must be in accordance with the requirements of the Subletting and Subcontracting
Fair Practices, Act, California Public Contract Code Section 4100 and following. Bids
must include a completed list of proposed subcontractors on the form included in the
bid package. In accordance with California Public Contract Code Section 4104,
completed lists of proposed subcontractors must include the name, business location,
the portion (type or trade), and dollar amount of the Project work to be subcontracted
for each subcontractor that will perform a portion of the Project work (including special
fabrication and installation of a portion of the work) valued in excess of one half (½) of
one (1) percent of the total Project bid price. If the Project work includes construction
of streets or highways, the completed list of proposed subcontractors must include the
subcontractor name, business location, type of work and dollar amount to be

Project work with a value of more than one half (½) of one (1) percent of the total
Project bid price for which no subcontractor is listed, or for which more than one
subcontractor is listed, bidders certify by submitting their bids that they are qualified to
perform that portion of the Project work and that they will perform that portion of the
Project work with their own forces. Bidders may not substitute another subcontractor
for a subcontractor listed in their bid except as permitted by the District in accordance
with Section 4107 and following of the California Public Contract Code.
12. ASSIGNMENT
Bidders may not assign, sublet, sell, transfer, or otherwise dispose of their bid or any right,
title or interest in their bid, or their obligations under their bid, without the written consent of
an authorized representative of the District. Any purported assignment, subletting, sale,

submitted by the Contractor must be submitted to the District Engineer no later than
the time of the proposed change.
4.4
All Change Orders. All change order proposals must be submitted on completed
Change Order forms provided in the Contract Documents. All such change order
proposals must itemize all cost impacts of the proposed change order and include a
total price for that change order and the amended Contract Price that would become
effective upon execution of the change order. All change order proposals must specify
any change in the Project schedule, or in any project milestone including, but not
limited to, the Time for Completion, under the change order. It is understood that
change orders that do not specify a change in any milestone, including, but not limited
to, the Time for Completion, may be accomplished by the Time for Completion then in
effect.
4.5 Change Order Pricing. Change order pricing will be governed by the following:
4.5.1
Unit prices specified in the Contract Documents will apply to cost impacts
involving items for which the Contract Documents specify unit prices.
4.5.2
Cost impacts involving items for which no unit prices are specified will be
calculated by adding the itemized actual direct cost that would be added or
reduced under the change order and an allowance for indirect costs in
accordance with this Section. Itemization for direct costs for required labor
must include the classifications of labor required, the total hours required for
each classification, the hourly rate for each classification and other labor related
costs such as liability and workers compensation insurance, social security,
retirement and unemployment insurance. All other cost impacts for which no
unit prices are specified must be itemized as appropriate, including the cost of
tools, vehicles, phones and other equipment, and the cost of all required
CIVIC CENTER NORTH AND JOHN DUCKETT PS
STANDBY GENERATOR REPLACEMENT PROJECT

GENERAL CONDITIONS
JOB NO.10300-11/-09
materials or supplies. Indirect costs added under a change order may not
exceed an allowance of fifteen (15) percent of the total of combined Contractor
and subcontractor direct costs added under the change order. Such allowance
covers Contractor overhead and profit under the change order and includes the
cost of insurance in addition to that required pursuant to Section 8.8, bond
premiums, superintendent labor, clerical labor, home office expenses, worksite
office expenses, and utility costs under the change order. Such costs may not
be itemized as direct costs under a change order. Indirect costs deducted
under a change order will be calculated in exactly the same way as indirect
costs added under a change order, except indirect costs deducted under a
change order may not exceed an allowance of seven and a half (7.5) percent of
the total of combined Contractor and subcontractor direct costs deducted under
the change order.
4.6
Liability Under Unapproved Change Orders. The Contractor shall be solely
responsible for any and all losses, costs, or liabilities of any kind incurred by the
Contractor, any subcontractor engaged in the performance of the Work, any party
supplying material or equipment for the Work or any third party that are incurred
pursuant to Contractor-proposed change orders prior to issuance of an approved
change order executed in accordance with this Section 4. The Contractor will have all
of the obligations and the District will have all of the rights and remedies that are
specified in Section 11 concerning any work or resulting losses, costs, or liabilities
pursuant to a Contractor proposed change order before issuance of an approved
change order executed in accordance with this Section 4.
4.7 Changes Subject to Contract Documents. Any changes in the Work and/or the
Contract Documents pursuant to change orders and any other amendments issued in
accordance with the Contract Documents, including this Section 4, will in all respects
be subject to all provisions of the Contract Documents, including, but not limited to, the
Technical Specifications and the Drawings, except as modified by such change orders
or amendments.
4.8 Change Order Disputes.
4.8.1
Disputed District Directed Change Orders. If the Contractor disputes a District
directed change order following a reasonable effort by the District and the
Contractor to resolve the dispute including, at a minimum, a meeting between
appropriate representatives of the Contractor and the District, the Contractor
must commence performing the Work consistent with the disputed change
order within five (5) working days of the last meeting between representatives
of the Contractor and the District to resolve the dispute, or within the time
specified in the disputed District directed change order, whichever is later. In

GENERAL CONDITIONS
JOB NO.10300-11/-09
Regardless of and throughout any such efforts to resolve the dispute the
Contractor must continue performing the Work irrespective of and unmodified
by the disputed change order. In continuing to perform the Work, the
Contractor will retain all of the Contractor’s rights under contract or law
pertaining to resolution of disputes and protests between contracting parties.
Disputes between the District and the Contractor concerning any Contractorproposed change order or other amendment do not excuse the Contractor’s
obligation to perform the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents
excluding such Contractor-proposed change order or other amendment by the
Time for Completion or waive any other Project milestone or other requirement
of the Contract Documents.
5. TRENCHING AND UTILITIES
5.1
Excavation More Than Four Feet Deep. In accordance with California Public Contract
Code Section 7104, if the Work involves excavation more than four feet deep the
Contractor must promptly notify the District in writing before disturbing: any material
that the Contractor believes may be hazardous waste, as defined in Section 25117 of
the Health and Safety Code, that is required to be removed to a Class I, Class II or
Class III disposal site in accordance with provisions of existing law; any subsurface or
latent physical conditions at the Work site differing from those indicated; or any
unknown physical conditions at the Work site of any unusual nature, different
materially from those ordinarily encountered and generally recognized as inherent in
work of the character provided for in the Contract Documents. The District will promptly
investigate any such conditions for which notice is given. If the District finds that the
conditions do materially differ, or involve hazardous waste, and would cause a
decrease or increase in the cost or time of performance of the Work, the District will
issue a change order pursuant to Section 4 of these General Conditions. If a dispute
arises between the District and the Contractor concerning whether the conditions
materially differ, or involve hazardous waste, or cause a decrease of increase in the
cost or time of performance, the Contractor will not be excused from any completion
date provided in the Contract Documents, but shall proceed with all Work to be
performed. The Contractor will retain all rights under contract or law pertaining to
resolution of disputes and protests between contracting parties.
5.2
Excavation of Five Feet or More. In accordance with California Labor Code Section
6705, contractors performing contracts exceeding $25,000 in cost and involving
excavation five or more feet deep must submit for the District’s acceptance, prior to
excavation, a detailed plan showing the design of shoring, bracing, sloping, or other
provisions to be made for worker protection from the hazard of caving ground during
excavation. If the plan varies from the shoring system standards, it must be prepared
by a registered civil or structural engineer.
5.3 Existing Utilities.
5.3.1
General – The location of known existing utilities and pipelines are shown on
the Plans in their approximate locations. However, nothing herein shall be
deemed to require the District to indicate the presence of existing service
laterals or appurtenances whenever the presence of such utilities on the site of
the project can be inferred from the presence of other visible facilities, such as
CIVIC CENTER NORTH AND JOHN DUCKETT PS
STANDBY GENERATOR REPLACEMENT PROJECT

buildings, cleanouts, meter and junction boxes, on or adjacent to the site of the
Project.
The District will assume the responsibility for the timely removal, relocation, or
protection of existing main or trunk line utility facilities located on the Project site
if such utilities are not identified by the District in the Contract Documents or
which cannot reasonably be inferred from the presence of other visible facilities.
5.3.2
Utility Location – It shall be the Contractor’s responsibility to determine the
exact location and depth of all utilities, including service connections, which
have been marked by the respective utility owners and which the Contractor
believes may affect or be affected by the Contractor’s operations. The
Contractor shall not be entitled to additional compensation nor time extensions
for work necessary to avoid interferences nor for repair to damaged utilities if
the Contractor does not expose all such existing utilities as required by this
section.
The locating of utilities shall be in conformance with Government Code Section
4216 et seq. except for the District’s utilities located on the District’s property
and not on public right-of-way.
A “High Priority Subsurface Installation” is defined in Section 4216 (e) as “highpressure natural gas pipelines with normal operating pressures greater than
415kPA gauge (60psig) or greater than six inches nominal pipe diameter,
petroleum pipelines, pressurized sewage pipelines, high-voltage electric supply
lines, conductors, or cables that have a potential to ground of greater than or
equal to 60kv, or hazardous materials pipelines that are potentially hazardous
to workers or the public if damaged.”
A “Subsurface Installation” is defined in Section 4216 (l) as “any underground
pipeline, conduit, duct, wire, or other structure, except non-pressurized sewer
lines, non-pressurized storm drains, or other non-pressurized drain lines.”
Pursuant to Government Code Section 4216.2 the Contractor shall contact the
appropriate regional notification center at least two (2) working days but not
more than fourteen (14) calendar days before performing any excavation. The
Contractor shall request that the utility owners conduct a utility survey and mark
or otherwise indicate the location of their service. The Contractor shall furnish
to the Construction Manager written documentation of its contact(s) with the
regional notification center prior to commencing excavation at such locations.
After the utility survey is completed, the Contractor shall commence “potholing”
or hand digging to determine the actual location of the pipe, duct, or conduit.
The Construction Manager and District Engineer shall be given notice prior to
commencing potholing operations. The Contractor shall uncover all piping and
conduits, to a point one (1) foot below the pipe, where crossings, interferences,
or connections are shown on the Drawings, prior to trenching or excavating for
any pipe or structures, to determine actual elevations. New pipelines shall be
laid to such grade as to clear all existing facilities, which are to remain in

service for any period subsequent to the construction of the run of pipe
involved.
The Contractor's attention is directed to the requirements of Government Code
Section 4216.2 (a)(2) which provides: “When the excavation is proposed within
10 feet of a high priority subsurface installation, the operator of the high priority
subsurface installation shall notify the excavator of the existence of the high
priority subsurface installation prior to the legal excavation start date and time,
as such date and time are authorized pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision
(a) of 4216.2. The excavator and the operator or its representative shall
conduct an onsite meeting at a mutually-agreed-on time to determine actions or
activities required to verify the location of the high priority subsurface
installation prior to start time.” The Contractor shall notify the Construction
Manager and District Engineer in advance of this meeting.
5.3.4. Utility Relocation and Repair – If interferences occur at locations other than
those indicated in the Contract Documents with reasonable accuracy, the
Contractor shall notify the Construction Manager and District Engineer in
writing. The Construction Manager will supply a method for correcting said
interferences in accordance with the responsibilities of this section and
Government Code Section 4215.
Care shall be exercised by the Contractor to prevent damage to adjacent
existing facilities and public or private works; where equipment will pass over
these obstructions, suitable planking shall be placed. If high priority subsurface
installations are damaged and the operator cannot be contacted, the Contractor
shall call 911 emergency services.
The District will compensate the Contractor for the costs of locating and
repairing damage not due to the failure of the Contractor to exercise reasonable
care, and for removing or relocating such main or trunk line utility facilities not
indicated in the Contract Documents with reasonable accuracy, and for the cost
of equipment on the Project necessarily idled during such work. The payment
for such costs will be made as provided in Section 4, Change Orders. The
Contractor shall not be assessed liquidated damages for delay in completion of
the Project, when such delay is caused by the failure of the District or utility
company to provide for removal or relocation of such utility facilities.
The public utility, where they are the owner of the effected utility, shall have the
sole discretion to perform repairs or relocation work or permit the Contractor to
do such repairs or relocation work at a reasonable price. The right is reserved
to the District and the owners of utilities or their authorized agents to enter upon
the Work area for the purpose of making such changes as are necessary for
the rearrangement of their facilities or for making necessary connections or
repairs to their properties. The Contractor shall cooperate with forces engaged
in such work and shall conduct its operations in such a manner as to avoid any
unnecessary delay or hindrance to the work being performed by such forces
and shall allow the respective utilities time to relocate their facility.

When the Contract Documents indicate that a utility is to be relocated, altered
or constructed by others, the District will conduct all negotiations with the utility
company and the work will be done at no cost to the Contractor, unless
otherwise stipulated in the Agreement.
Temporary or permanent relocation or alteration of utilities desired by the
Contractor for its own convenience shall be the Contractor’s responsibility and it
shall make arrangements and bear all costs for such work.
6. PROJECT FACILITIES

privities must conform to all applicable codes, ordinances and regulations. The cost of
such Work site office facilities shall be paid from the included in the Contract Price.
6.2
District Rights of Access and Ownership. The District and its authorized
representatives will at all reasonable times while such office facilities are located at the
Work site (including, at a minimum, all times during which the Work is performed),
have access to any such Work site office facilities used by the Contractor and/or its
privities. With respect to the right of access of the District and its authorized
representatives, neither the Contractor nor its privities shall have a reasonable
expectation of privacy pursuant to the Fourth Amendment to the Unites States
Constitution or other applicable law concerning such Work site office facilities used by
the Contractor and/or its privities. Without exception, any and all Project related
materials located at such Work site facilities will be deemed at all times to be District
property subject to inspection and copying by the District and its authorized
representatives at all reasonable times while such facilities are located at the Work site
(including, at a minimum, all times during which the Work is performed). Any
interference by the Contractor or its privities with the District’s rights of access and/or
ownership pursuant to this Section 6 will constitute a material breach of the Agreement
subject to any and all remedies available pursuant to the Contract Documents and at
law and equity.
7. PROSECUTION AND PROGRESS OF THE WORK
7.1
Liquidated Damages. Time is of the essence in the Agreement. The District and the
Contractor agree that it will be difficult and/or impossible to determine the actual
damage which the District will sustain in the event of the Contractor’s failure to fully
perform the Work or to fully perform all of the Contractor’s obligations that have
accrued pursuant to the Agreement by the Time for Completion. Accordingly, the
District and the Contractor agree in accordance with California Government Code
Section 53069.85 that the Contractor will forfeit and pay to the District liquidated
damages in the sum of $1,000 per day for each and every calendar day completion of
the Work and/or performance of all of the Contractor’s obligations that have accrued
pursuant to the Agreement is delayed beyond the Time for Completion. The District
and the Contractor further agree in accordance with California Government Code
Section 53069.85 that the liquidated damages sum specified in this provision is not
manifestly unreasonable under the circumstances existing at the time the Agreement
was made, and that the District may deduct liquidated damages sums in accordance

with this provision from any payments due or that may become due the Contractor
under the Agreement.
7.2
No Damage for Delay Beyond District and Contractor Control. The Contractor will not
be held responsible for delays in performance of the Work caused by delay beyond the
control of both District and Contractor, such as by strikes, lockouts, or labor
disturbances that are not within the control of the contractor to resolve, lack or failure
of transportation, or acts of other government entities. This provision will not apply
where the delay would not have occurred but for a previous contractor caused delay in
the prosecution of the Work. The District will not be liable to the Contractor, any
subcontractor or other entity engaged in the performance of the Work, any supplier, or
any other person or organization, or to any surety or employee or agent of any of
them, for damages arising out of or resulting from (i) delays beyond the control of the
District and the Contractor including but not limited to fires, floods, epidemics,
abnormal weather conditions, earthquakes and acts of God or acts or neglect by utility
owners or other contractors performing other work, or (ii) delays caused by the District,
its officials, officers, employees, agents, or volunteers, or delays caused by the District
Engineer or the Architect or Engineer, which delays are reasonable under the
circumstances involved and/or are within the contemplation of the District and the
Contractor. An extension of the Time for Performance in an amount equal to the time
loss due to such delay(s) will be the Contractor's sole and exclusive remedy for such
delay(s).
7.3
No Damage for Contractor Caused Delay. Contractor shall not be entitled to additional
compensation for extended field or home office overhead, field supervision, costs of
capital, interest, escalation charges, acceleration costs or other impacts for any delays
to the extent such delays are caused by the failure of the Contractor or any
subcontractor or other entity engaged in performance of the Work to perform the Work
in accordance with the Contract Documents. Contractor may be eligible for additional
compensation in excess of the Contract Price for delays caused by the District and/or
its privities.
7.4
No Damage for Other Delay. Contractor will not be entitled to damages for delay to
the Work caused by the following, which the District and Contractor agree will be
deemed for purposes of California Public Contract Code Section 7102 either not
caused by the District, and/or within the contemplation of the District and the
Contractor, and/or reasonable under the circumstances:
7.4.1
7.4.2
Exercise of the District’s right to sequence the Work in a manner that would
avoid disruption to the District and other contractors based on: the failure of the
Contractor or any subcontractor or other entity engaged in the performance of
the Work to perform the Work in accordance with the Contract Documents,
enforcement by the District or any other governmental agency of competent
jurisdiction of any government act or regulation, or enforcement by the District
of any provisions of the Agreement.
Requests for clarification or information concerning the Contract Documents or
proposed change orders or modifications to the Contract Documents, including
extensive and/or numerous such requests for clarification or information or
proposed change orders or modifications, provided such clarifications or

information or proposed change orders or modifications are processed by the
District or its representatives in a reasonable time in accordance with the
Contract Documents.
7.5 Delays Caused by the District and/or Its Privities. Either the District or the Contractor
may propose a change in the Time for Completion for delays that are purported to be
caused by the District and/or its privities and that are not reasonable under the
circumstances involved and/or that are not within the contemplation of the District and
the Contractor. Such proposed changes in the Time for Completion will constitute
change order proposals subject to Section 4. In accordance with Section 4, the District
and the Contractor may agree upon pricing for the cost impacts, if any, resulting from
such delays. If such pricing is in anticipation of cost impacts that may, but have not yet
occurred, the District will be obligated to pay the Contractor for such anticipated
impacts in accordance with the Agreement and any applicable, approved change
orders only to the extent the Contractor actually incurs the anticipated cost impacts.

the District or any other contractor, the Contractor will, before proceeding with
such Work, promptly report to the District any apparent discrepancies or defects
in such other Work. Failure of the Contractor to promptly report any apparent

Suspension of Work shall remain in effect until the condition or cause for such
order has been eliminated. The District’s concurrence that the condition or
cause has been eliminated will be provided to the Contractor in writing. This
right of the District to stop and suspend the Work shall not give rise to any duty
on the part of the District to exercise this right for the benefit of the Contractor
or any other person or entity. All delays in the Work occasioned by such
stoppage shall not relieve the Contractor of any duty to perform the Work or
serve to extend the time for its completion. Any and all necessary corrective

10. PROJECT ACCEPTANCE AND CLOSEOUT
10.1 Occupancy. The District reserves the right to occupy or use any part or parts or the
entire of the Work before the Work is fully performed. Subject to applicable law,
exercising this right will in no way constitute acceptance of any part of the Work so
occupied or used or acceptance of the entire Work, nor will such occupancy or use in
any way affect the times when payments will become due the Contractor, nor will such
occupancy or use in any way prejudice the District’s rights under the Agreement, any
Agreement bonds, or at law or equity. Occupancy or use shall not waive the District’s
rights to assess liquidated damages in accordance with Section 7 after the date of
such occupancy or use.
10.2 Work Completion and Final Inspection. When the Contractor considers the Work is
completed, the Contractor will submit written certification to the District Engineer
specifying that: the Contract Documents have been reviewed; the Work has been
inspected for compliance with the Contract Documents; the Work has been completed
in accordance with the Contract Documents; and that equipment and systems have
been tested in the presence of the District’s representative and are operational. The
District and/or the District’s authorized representatives will make an inspection to verify
that the Work is complete and will notify the Contractor in writing of any incomplete or
deficient Work. The Contractor will take immediate steps to remedy the stated
deficiencies and give notice of correction to the District Engineer. Upon receiving a
notice of correction, the District or the District’s authorized representatives will reinspect the Work. The Contractor must correct all punch list items within 15 working
days after the issuance of the punch list. Before acceptance of the Work the
Contractor must submit: one set of reproducible mylars of the Project Record Drawings

the Work will be at the discretion of the District.

completed to the District’s reasonable satisfaction. Progress payments will in
no way be construed as acceptance of any part of the Work.

10.3.3 In evaluating the Work, no allowance will be made for deviations from the
Technical Specifications, Drawings or other Contract Documents unless already
approved in writing in accordance with the requirements of Section 4, above.
10.3.4 The fact that the Work and materials have been inspected from time to time and
that progress payments have been made does not relieve the Contractor of the
responsibility of replacing and making good any defective or omitted work or
materials in accordance with the requirements of the Contract Documents.
11. REMEDIES AND DISPUTES
11.1 Failure to Correct Work. Within ten (10) working days of receiving written notice from
the District describing Work that is defective or that is otherwise not in accordance with
the requirements of the Agreement and/or applicable law and directing that such Work
be corrected, the Contractor and/or the Contractor’s sureties must give the District
written notice of the intent of the Contractor and/or the Contractor’s sureties to correct
such Work and commence correction of such Work in accordance with the District’s
notice and the Agreement. If the Contractor and/or the Contractor’s sureties do not
give the District written notice of intent to correct such Work and commence correction
of such Work within ten (10) working days of receipt of the District’s notice, then the
District may correct such work and/or have such work corrected for the account and at
the expense of the Contractor and/or its sureties, and the Contractor and/or its sureties
will be liable to the District for any resulting excess cost. The District may, in addition
to all other remedies that the District may have under the Agreement and at law or
equity, deduct any such excess cost of completing the Work from amounts that are
due or that may become due the contractor.
11.2 Termination.
11.2.1 In accordance with California Public Contract Code Section 7105, in addition to
all other available remedies that the District may have under the Agreement,
and at law or equity, the District may terminate the Contractor’s control of the

the Contractor’s material obligations under the Contract Documents,
including but not limited to submission of an acceptable schedule, that
have accrued except for due to reasons beyond the control of the
Contractor pursuant to the Contract Documents.
11.2.1.2 If the Contractor is adjudged bankrupt, or if it should make a general
assignment for the benefit of creditors, or if a receiver should be
appointed on account of its creditors.

11.2.2 If the District intends to terminate the Contractor’s control of the Work for any of
the reasons specified in Sections 11.2.1.1 through 11.2.1.5, above, the District
will immediately serve written notice to the Contractor and its sureties in
accordance with the Contract Documents. Notice of the District’s intent to
terminate the Contractor’s control of the Work will be given by registered or
certified mail and specify the grounds for termination, the required cure and the
time by which the cure must be effected. Upon receipt of notice of the District’s
intent to terminate the Contractor’s control of the Work for any of the reasons
specified in provisions 11.2.1.1 through 11.2.1.5, above, the Contractor will
have ten (10) working days from receipt of the notice or a longer time specified
in the notice to cure its default. If the Contractor does not effect the required
cure by the time specified in the notice, the District will issue a written notice of
termination to the Contractor and its sureties by registered or certified mail.
The notice of termination will specify: that upon receipt of the notice the
Contractor’s right to perform or complete the Work, including on behalf of the
Contractor’s sureties, is terminated; that the Contractor’s sureties will have the
right to take over and complete the Work and perform all of the Contractor’s
remaining obligations that have accrued under the Agreement; and that if the
Contractor’s sureties do not both give the District written notice of their intention
to take over and perform the Agreement and commence completion of the
Work and performance of all of the Contractor’s remaining obligations that have
accrued under the Agreement within ten (10) working days after receipt of
notice of termination that the District may declare the Contractor’s sureties in
default and take over the completion of the Work or have the Work completed
for the account and at the expense of the Contractor and its sureties, and the
Contractor and its sureties will be liable to the District for any resulting excess
cost. The District may, in addition to all other available remedies that the
District may have under the Contract Documents and at law or equity, deduct
any such excess cost of completing the Work from amounts that are due or that
may become due the Contactor.
11.2.3 Upon termination of the Contractor’s control of the Work for any of the reasons
specified in Sections 11.2.1.1 - 11.2.1.5, the Contractor will, if so directed by the

failure to complete the Work.
11.2.4 Upon termination of the Contractor’s control of the Work for any of the reasons
specified in provisions 11.2.1.1 through 11.2.1.5, above, the District reserves
the right to refuse tender of the Contractor by any surety to complete the Work.
11.2.5 If the District completes or has completed any portion of, or the whole of the
Work, following termination of the Contractor’s control of the Work for any of the
reasons specified in Sections 11.2.1.1 through 11.2.1.5, above, the District will
neither be liable for nor account to the Contractor or the Contractor’s sureties in
any way for the time within which, or the manner in which such Work is
performed, or for any changes made in such Work or for the money expended
in satisfying claims and/or suits and/or other obligations in connection with
completing the Work. If, following termination of the Contractor’s control of the
Work for any of the reasons specified in Sections 11.2.1.1 through 11.2.1.5,
above, the unpaid balance of the Contract Price exceeds the expense of
completing the Work, including compensation for additional legal, managerial
and administrative services and all other amounts due for the completion of the
Work and/or satisfaction of claims of the District and/or others arising out of the
Agreement and any other charges that apply to the Contractor under the
Agreement, the difference will be paid to the Contractor. If such expenses of
completing the Work exceed the unpaid balance of the Contract Price, the
Contractor or its sureties will pay the difference to the District.
11.2.6 If the Agreement or Contractor’s control of the Work is terminated for any
reason, no allowances or compensation will be granted for the loss of any
anticipated profit by the Contractor.
11.2.7 In accordance with California Government Code Section 4410, in the event a
national emergency occurs, and public work being performed by contract is
stopped, directly or indirectly, because of the freezing or diversion of materials,
equipment or labor, as the result of an order or a proclamation of the President
of the United States, or of an order of any federal authority, and the
circumstances or conditions are such that it is impracticable within a reasonable
time to proceed with a substantial portion of the work, then the District and the
Contractor may, by written agreement, terminate the Agreement. In
accordance with California Government Code Section 4411, such an
agreement will include the terms and conditions of the termination of the
contract and provision for the payment of compensation or money, if any, which
either party will pay to the other or any other person, under the facts and
circumstances in the case. Compensation to the Contractor will be determined
on the basis of the reasonable value of the work done, including preparatory
work. As an exception to the foregoing, in the case of any fully completed
separate item or portion of the Work for which there is a separate contract
price, the contract price shall control. The parties may in any other case adopt
the contract price as the reasonable value of the work or any portion of the work
done.

WHAT THE RATINGS MEAN
5A to HH – ‘5A’ to ‘HH’ Ratings reflect company size based on worth or equity as computed by
D&B. Company size can be an effective indicator of credit capacity. These Ratings are
assigned to businesses that have supplied D&B with a current financial statement.
1R and 2R – the ‘1R’ and ‘2R’ Rating categories reflect company size based on the total
number of employees for the business. They are assigned to business files that do not contain
a current financial statement.
Composite Credit Appraisal: The Composite Credit Appraisal is a number, one through four,
that makes up the second half of the company’s rating and reflects D&B’s overall assessment of
that firm’s credit worthiness. The Composite Credit Appraisal is based on analysis by D&B of
company payments, financial information, public records, business age and other important
factors (where available).
A ‘2’ is the highest Composite Credit Appraisal a company not supplying D&B with current
financial information can receive.
Rating: May also include the ‘- -’ symbol, or absence of a D&B Rating. This symbol should not
be interpreted as indicating that credit should be denied. It means that the information available
to D&B does not permit us to classify the company within our Rating key and that further inquiry
should be made before reaching a credit decision. Some reasons for using the ‘- -’ symbol
includes: deficit net worth, bankruptcy proceedings, lack of sufficient payment information or
incomplete history indicator.
Date Applied: Allows you to review a company’s rating changes over time (the last 10 Rating
changes or any changes since 1991 if less than 10 are provided).
ER (Employee Range): Certain lines of business do not lend themselves to classification under
the D&B Rating system. Instead, we assign these types of businesses an Employee Range
symbol based on the number of people employed. No other significance should be attached to
this symbol. For example, a Rating of 'ER7' means there are between five and nine employees
in the company. 'ERN' should not be interpreted negatively. It simply means we do not have
information indicating how many people are employed at this firm.
DS (DUNS) Support: This indicates that the information available to D&B does not permit us to
classify the company within our Rating key. When ordering these reports an investigation can
be performed and results sent to you within four working days, at no additional charge.
INV (Investigation Being Conducted): When an ‘INV’ appears, it means an investigation is
being conducted on this business to get the most current details.

ELECTRICAL SUPPLY SYSTEMS
The treatment plant’s Electrical Supply System consists of one 85KW digester/methane gas
fired engine driven generator., one 500KW diesel oil engine driven standby generator and
one 380 KW trailer mounted standby generator, and solar power. All electrical power
generated in the plant and PG&E power (beyond their transformer) is 480 volt, 3 phase, 60
Hz electricity and is delivered to one 480 volt switchgear panel. This panel is interconnected
by cables and protected by breakers, relays and monitoring devices.
Electricity is dispersed from the switchgear through breakers and cables to motor control
centers (MCC’s), to power panels, to transformers (voltage reducers), to lighting panels and
to motor driven pumps and equipment. Lockable control stations are located at each piece of
equipment. 480 volt, 208 volt and 120 volt electricity is used in the plant. Contact the duty
operator prior to working on any piece of electrical equipment. Electricity is hazardous and
can burn or kill people.

SAFE WORK REQUIREMENTS
UPDATED MAY 10, 2010
DIGESTER GAS SYSTEM
The Digester Gas System consists of one steel tank, associated piping, compressors, flare,
etc. Sludge is bacterially reduced in the tanks creating principally methane (CH) and other
combustible hazardous gases, including hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Hydrogen sulfide is toxic at
very low concentrations. These gases are contained by the tank covers and piping which is
located on overhead racks, in pipe trenches and buried throughout the plant. The gases are
burned in large engines driving generators to make electricity for the plant. Heat from the
engines is captured and piped to the digesters to heat the sludge, speeding up the digestion
process.
Digesters and the stored gases within them are hazardous. No smoking, cutting, or sparkgenerating equipment is allowed on or within ten feet of any digester. Contact the duty
operator prior to working on digesters.
E.
HYPOCHLORITE SYSTEM
Hypochlorite, or concentrated chlorine bleach (12.5%), is used to disinfect, or kill bacteria
and virus in the final effluent (water) discharged from the plant. Two tanks, one 6,000
gallons and one 3,400 gallons are used to store hypochlorite. Piping, valves, pumps, strainers
(filters) and flow measuring and control equipment make up the system. Hypochlorite will
attack clothing, skin, eyes and mucous membranes of the nose, mouth, throat and lungs.

INTRODUCTION
The purpose of Las Gallinas Valley Sanitary District's confined space entry program is to protect
employees who work in manholes, pump stations, tanks, or any other confined space that could
expose employees to hazardous conditions or substances. The program establishes an entry
permit system and procedures to ensure that potential hazards of each confined space are
identified and evaluated and that appropriate safety precautions are taken before an employee
enters the space.
Employees will be given an opportunity to participate in the development and implementation of
LGVSD's confined space procedures. The program will be revised or procedures will be
modified whenever suggestions or recommendations from employees would improve confined
space safety.
The policies and procedures in this program are consistent with the requirements of Cal/OSHA
General Industry Safety Orders, Title 8, Sections 5156 and 5157 and supersede previous confined
space policies and procedures. The program applies to all employees who work in, or in
connection with LGVSD confined spaces.
Confined spaces at LGVSD have been identified based on the definitions in Section 5157 as
follows:
Confined Space is a space that:
1. Is large enough and so configured that an employee can bodily enter and
perform assigned work; and
2. Has limited or restricted means for entry or exit; and
3. Is not designed for continuous employee occupancy.
Permit-Required Confined Space is a space that has one or more of the following
characteristics:
1. Contains or has a potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere;
2. Contains a material that has the potential for engulfing an entrant;
3. Has an internal configuration such that an entrant could be trapped or
asphyxiated by inwardly converging walls or by a floor which slopes
downward and tapers to a smaller cross section; or
4. Contains any other recognized serious safety or health hazard.
Non-Permit Confined Space is a space that does not contain (or with respect to
atmospheric hazards, has no potential to contain) any hazard capable of causing death or
serious physical harm.
B-1
LAS GALLINAS VALLEY SANITARY DISTRICT
CONFINED SPACE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
UPDATED FEBRUARY 14, 2007
Employees who work in or in connection with confined spaces are required to follow the
procedures described in this program and to take all the appropriate precautions to ensure that the
work is performed safely. At no time should an employee enter a confined space or perform work
in the space unless it can be done safely.
PERMIT-REQUIRED CONFINED SPACEs
The tables on pages B-4 and B-5 list confined spaces at LGVSD that require a permit to enter.
Potential hazards associated with these spaces include engulfment, toxic gases, explosive or
flammable gases, oxygen deficiency, electrical and mechanical hazards, and may under certain
circumstances involve heat stress. Warning signs will be posted at wet wells and similar
locations to inform employees that the space requires a permit to enter. To prevent unauthorized
entry, each of these spaces will be secured.
Using the entry permit, a non-entry evaluation must be done so that potential hazards can be
identified and the appropriate safety precautions taken. The types of hazards that may be
encountered, pre-entry safety checks, and the types of safety equipment that will be used are
entered on the permit. Only the person designated as the entry supervisor has the authority to
authorize the entry permit. At least three employees are required for a permit-required confined
space entry which would include an attendant and a standby rescuer.
The tables on pages B-4 and B-5 that list permit-required confined spaces at LGVSD are not allinclusive. Other spaces may be determined to be permit-required after evaluating the conditions
or circumstances of the entry. The type of work to be performed in the space could introduce
hazards to an otherwise safe space. Working with flammable or toxic substances, welding or
other hot work, or drifting vapors from outside sources would make a space hazardous or
potentially hazardous and therefore require a permit to enter.
ALTERNATE ENTRY PROCEDURES
Alternate procedures are allowed in permit-required spaces where it can be demonstrated and
documented that the only hazard or potential hazard is an atmospheric one, and that continuous
forced air ventilation alone will maintain the space safe for entry. A trained, qualified employee
may enter these confined spaces without an attendant or rescue preparations provided the
following conditions are met.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
All unsafe conditions are eliminated before the confined space cover is
removed.
The entrance to the space is guarded with a railing or other type of barrier to
prevent an accidental fall through the opening and to protect employee in the
space.
The atmosphere is tested before entry in the following order: O2, LEL/LFL,
H2S.
No entrance is made until hazardous atmosphere is eliminated.
There is no hazardous atmosphere when employees are in the space.
Continuous forced ventilation is used.

CONFINED SPACE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
UPDATED FEBRUARY 14, 2007
The air supply is clean and will not increase hazards.
The air supply is directed to area where employees are working.
The atmosphere is tested every 15 minutes to ensure a hazardous atmosphere
is not developing.
Records of pre-entry and entry monitoring data and inspection data are
maintained.
The entrant certifies, in writing, that the required pre-entry measures have
been taken.
Monitoring and inspection data, and the certification information are made
available to each employee entering the space.
If a hazardous atmosphere develops in the space, or other hazards arise, alternate procedures can
no longer be used and the space must be reclassified as a fully permitted space.
SPECIAL ENTRY PROCEDURES
There are a few confined spaces at LGVSD that are not considered permit-required confined
spaces. As far as can be determined, these spaces do not contain any known hazard. However, as
a precautionary measure, employees are required to follow certain special procedures before
entering these spaces.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Test the atmospheric conditions prior to entry.
If atmospheric conditions are acceptable, entry can be made.
If atmospheric conditions are not acceptable, use alternate procedures.
If any other hazardous condition exists, follow permit-required confined
space procedures.
THE ENTRY PERMIT SYSTEM
Confined space entry permits are to be issued for a specific purpose, a specific work crew, and
for a specified period of time. The entry permit is a written authorization of the location and type
of work to be done. It also authorizes the personnel assigned to the job, and verifies that potential
hazards have been evaluated and controlled or eliminated, that proper safety precautions have
been taken, and it is safe for workers to enter. The permit must be kept at the work site (outside
the space) for the duration of the work and cancelled after the work is completed.
HOT WORK PERMIT
A hot work permit must be issued for any work that produces heat, sparks or flame in a permitrequired confined space. This includes but not limited to brazing, cutting, grinding, soldering,
and welding.

3. At least one attendant is required for confined space work.
4. If at any time during the performance of confined space work, dangerous
atmospheric conditions develop, work must stop and the space evacuate
immediately.
5. An attendant must be stationed outside the space at all times during the confined
space operations and remain in constant communication with workers in the space.
6. The attendant must order evacuation of the space whenever:
a) A condition not allowed on the permit is observed
b) Unusual behavior is observed
c) An outside situation endangers the confined space workers
d) The attendant must leave the work station
7. The permit must be cancelled if the air becomes hazardous after entry.
8. Respiratory equipment must be worn whenever a safe atmosphere cannot be assured
after implementing pre-entry procedures.
Post-Entry
The entry supervisor:
1. Cancels the permit by entering date and time of cancellation and signature.
2. On the reverse side of the permit, makes note of any problems encountered during
entry operations.
3. Places the cancelled permit in the safety files.
4. Notifies the Plant Superintendent if any equipment, safety gear or tools need to be
repaired or replaced.
RESCUE PROCEDURES
It is the District's policy that all employees who work in or in connection with confined spaces
must be trained in rescue procedures. Members of a permit space entry team must be
knowledgeable of the hazards or potential hazards, be able to recognize the signs and symptoms
of exposure, be trained in the selection and use of personal protective equipment, and be certified
in first-aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Prior to each entry the team will plan and prepare
for non-entry and entry rescues and ensure that at least one standby is immediately available to
provide rescue services.
Self-Rescue
If possible, entrants should immediately leave the confined space:
1. When an alarm sounds.
2. At the first sign of any exposure symptoms.
3. When ordered to evacuate by attendant or entry supervisor.

LAS GALLINAS VALLEY SANITARY DISTRICT
CONFINED SPACE ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
UPDATED FEBRUARY 14, 2007
Non-Entry Rescue
If entrants cannot immediately evacuate the space at the first sign of trouble, the attendant should
attempt a non-entry rescue by retrieving the entrant using a harness and hoisting equipment. The
attendant must not enter the space unless relieved by another attendant. Retrieval systems must
be used in vertical permit spaces more than 5 feet deep.
Entry Rescue
Rescuers are to assume that a hazardous atmosphere exists if an entrant has slurred speech,
appears dizzy, disoriented, confused, unconscious, or displays any unusual behavior, or if
communication with the entrant is lost. A self-contained breathing apparatus must be worn for
entry rescues if a hazardous atmosphere is suspected or if there is any chance that it can develop.
Call 911 for assistance or if specialized equipment is needed to remove a worker.
Outside Rescue Services
Although outside rescue services may be present at the time of the entry or summoned to give
assistance and support in an emergency, members of the entry team must be prepared to give
immediate assistance to any of the entrants who may need it.
NON-PERMIT CONFINED SPACES
All confined spaces are considered permit-required until pre-entry procedures demonstrate
otherwise. A confined space may be designated a non-permit space, or a permit-required
confined space may be reclassified a non-permit space if all hazards have been eliminated.
Because atmospheric hazards are controlled with ventilation and not eliminated in spaces, these
spaces cannot be classified as non-permit spaces.
CONTRACTORS
Contractors and subcontractors who plan to work in LGVSD confined spaces will be given all
available information on LGVSD confined space hazards, the permit system, and entry
procedures. Contractors are required to use a permit system for entry into LGVSD permitrequired confined spacxes. Contractors are also required to coordinate work and entry activities
whenever LGVSD employees and contractor employees will be working in or near the permit
spaces.
At the conclusion of the contractor's work, the LGVSD supervisor in charge will debrief the
contractor to determine if any hazards were encountered or created during entry.

The work, unless otherwise permitted or approved by the District, shall be completed
with the incorporated use of equipment, materials and/or products where such are
specified. Substitutions and equal alternatives will be permitted as provided in this
article; however, neither the request for substitution nor the offer of alternatives shall in
any way by their submittal obligate the District to assent to any request or offer. Failure
of the Contractor awarded the work to either submit requests for substitutions or to offer
alternatives within the required times provided in this General Condition will be
considered as evidence that the work shall be accomplished with trade-named
equipment, materials and/or products as identified in the Technical Provisions and/or the
Project Drawings.
Unless otherwise provided elsewhere in the Contract, all equipment, materials and/or
products incorporated into the work shall be new and, where not specified, shall be of
the highest quality of the respective kinds for the intended use, and all installation shall
meet or exceed applicable construction industry standards and practices. If equipment,
materials and/or products are designated by listing named manufacturers of particular
equipment, materials and/or products followed by the words "or equal," then the
Contractor may furnish the named equipment, materials and/or products or any equal
equipment, materials and/or products. The first named manufacturer of particular
equipment, materials and/or products is the basis for the design shown on the Project
Drawings. A subsequently named manufacturer or particular equipment, materials
and/or products has been determined to be an acceptable substitution but may require
modifications in the Project's design and its ultimate construction to accommodate its
use. If such subsequently named items are selected by the Contractor for incorporation
into the work, the Contractor shall assume all costs required for modifications to the
equipment, materials and/or products, and the Project design and construction as may be
required for said items' use. Substitutions for an unnamed "equal" item of material
shall be permitted upon compliance with the procedures set forth herein. If a Contractor
makes use of an unnamed "equal" product as a substitute for a specifically named
material or product, the Contractor shall assume all costs required to make the necessary
revisions or modifications to accommodate the use of said unnamed product.

In determining whether a proposed product is equal in quality and utility, the District is
not restricted to such basic issues as performance and durability, but may consider any
other issues that the District, in the discretion of the District, deems appropriate. Said
issues may, but are not required to include, nor are they limited to, such additional
factors as comparable performance, reliability, efficiency of operation, ease of
operation, adaptability, ease of maintenance, capital costs, life-cycle costs, operational
characteristics, costs of training personnel, maintenance history, warranties, problems
created by the resulting overall warranty system, availability of qualified service,
availability of parts, the history of any supplier, and compatibility with existing
facilities.
No one factor or group of factors, including such issues as savings on capital costs, shall
be determinative of whether the proposed product or material is equal in quality and
utility. The decision of the District shall be based on those factors deemed by the
District to be relevant and any data, drawings, samples, literature or other detailed
information furnished by the Contractor with respect to the proposed substitution.
Each decision as to whether a product or material is equal in quality and utility shall be
made by the District on a case-by-case basis.
The Contractor shall be responsible for any and all costs, including consultant costs,
incurred by the District with respect to the proposed substitution that exceed the costs
inherent in the normal and reasonable review of drawings and other standard data,
information and documents concerning any proposed substitution. The Contractor shall
be responsible for this cost, regardless of whether or not the substitution is approved by
the District.

ANODE INSTALLATION
A.
Prepackaged anodes shall be installed at the locations indicated. Plastic or paper wrap
shall be removed from the anode prior to lowering the anode into the hole. Anodes shall
not be suspended by the lead cables. When compacted soil is required and has been
placed to the top of the anode and prior to the filling of the hole with soil, a minimum of
10 gallons of water shall be poured into the hole to saturate the anode backfill and
surrounding soil.
B.
Backfilling with native soil shall proceed in 6-inch lifts, compacting the soil around the
anode during each lift until the backfill has reached grade. Damage to the canvas bag,
anode to cable connection, copper cable or cable insulation will require replacement of
entire assembly.
C.
The two-anodes-per-test station anodes may be installed horizontally or vertically, at the
depth and distance from the pipe or fitting as indicated on the Drawings.
D.
Each anode cable shall terminate in the Test Station for the ground bed, as indicated on
the Drawings.
E.
Anodes shall not be backfilled prior to inspection and approval of the ENGINEER.

ANODE TEST STATION
Locate the Anode Test Stations as indicated by the Drawings. A legend shall be located
inside the cap of the test terminal of the abbreviations of the cable identification tags, the
foot station and the type of test station
WRAPPING INSULATING JOINT ASSEMBLIES
A.
All underground assemblies that have been installed with insulating joint(s) shall be
wrapped with wax tape in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
B.
The wrapping shall cover all the fitting(s) and extend at least one pipe diameter beyond
each end of the fitting(s) to be wrapped.
C.
A minimum of three wraps of wax tape shall be used to cover the required wrap area.

After installation, all cable connections shall be tested at the test station locations, by the
CONTRACTOR, to ensure that they meet the requirements of the Contract Documents.
EXOTHERMIC WELDS
A. Exothermic welds shall be tested by the CONTRACTOR for adherence to the pipe or
casing and for electrical continuity between the pipe or casing and cables. A 22-ounce
hammer shall be used for adherence testing by striking a blow to the weld. Care shall be
taken to avoid hitting the cables.
3.15
INSULATING JOINT TESTING
A.
Insulating flange kits shall be installed to effectively isolate metallic piping from foreign
metallic structures, piping of different materials, linings or coatings or structures for
which monitoring and/or cathodic protection is not required. The CONTRACTOR shall
test the performance of these insulating flange kits prior to backfill. Testing shall be
performed using a Gas Electronics Model No. 601 Insulation Checker or approved equal.
Any insulating flanges which are not functioning as indicated by the test data and verified
by the ENGINEER shall be considered deficient and shall be repaired and retested at the
CONTRACTOR'S expense.
B.
After the electrical isolation of the insulating dresser coupling and new piping has been
confirmed to be electrically isolated from the existing pump station piping, the existing
24-inch WS L/C spool on the exterior side of the pump station shall be coated with
cement mortar.

JOINT BOND TESTING
After installation, all joint bonds shall be tested for effectiveness. The testing shall be
performed prior to backfill of the pipe and shall be verified upon completion of
backfilling operations. Prior to backfilling, current shall be circulated through the pipe
and the measured resistance shall be compared to the theoretical resistance of the pipe and
bond cables. The resistance measured shall not exceed 150 percent of the theoretical
resistance.
SYSTEM CHECK-OUT
Upon completion of the installation, the CONTRACTOR shall provide testing at the
CONTRACTOR'S expense of the system by a qualified corrosion engineer to ensure
compliance with the Contract Documents. The testing shall be conducted in the presence
of the ENGINEER. The testing shall include, but not be limited to the following, at the
discretion of the ENGINEER, measurement of all anode currents and potentials,
potentials of metallic pipelines/appurtenances prior to and after connection of anodes.
Measurements shall be made at all test station locations. Any deficiencies of systems
