Encroachment Permits Permanent and Temporary Easements Temporary Right-of-Entry
The Owner has obtained encroachment permits from the County of Ventura and City of Port Hueneme and conditions for an encroachment permit from the City of Oxnard. (County of Ventura permit to be provided via addendum.) The Contractor shall obtain a duplicate encroachment permit from Port Hueneme and obtain an encroachment permit from Oxnard. All construction shall conform to the provisions of the public agencies encroachment permits and any of their special conditions.
Permanent and temporary easements have been obtained for a portion of the pipeline alignment paralleling Hueneme Rd. roughly between Conner Dr. and Perkins Rd. Easements also encompass meter and control valve vaults.
The Owner has entered into a right-of-entry agreement with The Bungalows at Beach House HOA for placement of traffic control signs only on private roads. Signs must be posted so as not to damage pavement or landscaping.
If the Contractor requests any changes to the TCPs, the Contractor will be required to prepare revised TCPs; submit them to the Engineer and Calleguas for review and approval prior to submittal to the agencies; and pay the Engineers, Owners, and agencies fees for reviewing the TCPs. Temporary traffic control during tasks not directly related to main pipeline installation is the responsibility of the Contractor. Any required new TCPs shall be submitted to the Engineer and Calleguas for review and approval prior to submittal to the agencies having jurisdiction. The Contractor shall allow for 4 weeks for review of each TCP submittal by the agencies.
Traffic control performed within the County of Ventura jurisdiction shall be done by an independent 3 rd party whose sole responsibility is for traffic control. The Contractor may not, without written permission from the Owner, install any temporary traffic controls for pipeline construction in the public ROW prior to having all pipe and fittings necessary to complete the work to be constructed under that traffic control set up on site or at a local storage yard. Contractor must take photos of traffic control setups daily and submit those photos weekly.
The Contractor shall designate a Traffic Control Manager (TCM), who must be present at the Site during times when the Contractor requires traffic control and is performing construction work. The Contractor shall maintain 24-hour telephone numbers at which the TCM can be contacted and be available upon request outside normal working hours. The TCM shall have the appropriate personnel, equipment and material available at all times in order to expeditiously correct any deficiency in the traffic control system.
The Contractor shall attend a pre-submittal meeting attended by the following: Contractors Project Manager Contractors Project Engineer or person responsible for technical assembly of Submittals Representative(s) for the WSP and fittings fabricator(s) Shop superintendent(s) or direct subordinate responsible for the manufacturing of 24 WSP and fittings If these representatives are not present, the meeting will be cancelled and rescheduled at no additional cost to the Owner. The Contractor shall verify and communicate verification to the Owner at least 7 Calendar Days prior to the meeting that each of the WSP related attendees have received a copy of the portions of the Specifications related to their work.
Additional pipe and fittings shall be provided as follows: Two lay length pipe PE x Bell Two lay length pipe PE x PE Two 48 buttstraps All pipe and fittings shall be designed and fabricated as Class 75 pipe with an assumed 20- foot earth overburden. Minimum cylinder thickness shall be as specified and as additionally required. Pipes and fittings shall be compatible with other 48 pipe installed in the Work.
Test in accordance with AWWA C200 - Steel Water Pipe – 6 In. and Larger. Required test pressure provided on key plan and profile sheets. (Test Gradient Elevation = 200 feet) Tie-in connection joint of the 48 WSP to the existing 48 PVC pipe shall be tested separately and to a maximum of 100 psi.
All materials shall be subject to inspection at the place of manufacture. Manufacturing activities requiring inspection may include: Review of the proposed manufacturing plant to verify its suitability for fabrication of the required materials and appurtenances. Fabrication, including fittings and specials. Application of plant-applied pipe linings and coatings. Shop testing of all manufacturing processes and manufactured materials. Processes used to transport materials to and from each manufacturing phase to preparing materials for transport to the Site.
At his discretion, the Owner shall arrange for and pay a Materials Inspector to perform inspections on behalf of the Owner for the following items. Steel pipe and fittings 12 and larger (including linings and coatings) Butterfly Valves 12 and larger Control panel
The Contractor shall provide the Owner with 10 Working Days advanced written notice of the date when fabrication will begin. If fabrication begins later than that date, the Contractor shall pay to Calleguas all costs for an inspector to wait on standby for the fabrication or testing to begin, including hourly wage, per diem, and expenses. Failure on the part of the Contractor to provide the notice required shall be just cause for the Owner to reject the materials fabricated without such notice.
The Contractor shall provide for the manufacturer to furnish safe access and to cooperate with the Materials Inspector in the performance of his duties. The Materials Inspector shall have free entry at all times to the manufacturers facilities while tests and inspections are being conducted. Adequate facilities shall be furnished to allow the Materials Inspector to perform his inspections, including taking photographs. Retain on file and make available upon request, copies of all specified reports, test results, and quality control documentation.
All pipe of each material shall be fabricated at one location in US. Linings and coatings may be applied at separate facilities, but these must also be within the US. All valves subject to shop inspection and testing shall be manufactured in the US.
The Contractor shall pothole: All utilities where crossings, interferences, or connections to the new pipelines or other facilities are marked by the utility companies or indicated by surface signs or other surface markers or indications. All utilities parallel to and within 15 ft of the pipeline. Parallel utilities shall be potholed at sufficient intervals to verify the location of the utility relative to the pipeline or structure being constructed. All utilities adjacent to and within 5 ft of all buried structures. The number of potholes shall be sufficient to determine plan location and direction and depth of all said utilities.
If a utility that is required to be potholed as described above is not found at the expected depth, the Contractor must continue to pothole deeper until either the utility is located or the pothole reaches 1 ft below the elevation of the bottom of the planned pipeline or structure without encountering the utility. Additional potholing requirements in Sections and for trenchless crossings.
Five trenchless crossings are required on this project. Contractor may select auger boring (Section 02315) or pipe ramming (Section 02320) for each trenchless crossing. Both methods require a pilot tube to be used for increased accuracy.
Port Hueneme Sewer Relocation: Contractor shall install the relocated sewer with the existing sewer line in service. Tie-ins between the relocated sewer and the existing sewer shall only be performed Mon-Fri between 7am and 4pm. 7 Working Day notice to Owner required. Oxnard Water Line Relocation: 5 Calendar Day shutdown allowed for relocation of existing water line. 5 Working Day notice to Owner required.
