Contractor & Consultant Outreach Meetings

Updated 7/24/14

Updates to several Water and Sewer documents were discussed at the Contractor and Consultant Outreach Meeting on April 18, 2014.  As such, DUSWM's Engineering and Planning Department has prepared the following DRAFT documents:

        • General Conditions and Standard Specifications for Water Mains, Sanitary Sewers and Related Structures
          [Updated 7/22/14]
          (Special Provisions have been incorporated into the General Conditions)
        • Standard Details for Water Mains, Sanitary Sewers and Related Structures
          (Additional Details for low pressure sewers have been added; no other changes were made to the document)
        • Design Manual for Water and Sewer Facilities
       
While attempting to reach the goal of having the updated General Conditions and Standard Specifications  adopted by the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) by the end of 2014, DUSWM is providing these documents for public comment and input. These documents will remain posted and comments may be provided until the outreach meeting scheduled for August 5, 2014.  After that time, comments will be addressed as necessary and appropriate.  The "final" General Conditions and Standard Specifications will then be brought for consideration by the BOCC at a public hearing.  The Design Manual and any necessary updates to the Standard Details will be handled via outreach and brought before the BOCC at a later date.  Please provide any comments in writing, with a notation as to what document they came from and the section or page number where the comment relates. Questions may be directed to Robert ("Bud") Creighton P.E., Engineering Manager, at (301) 600-2962 and written comments may be received via email at .
