20 20 MISCELLANEOUS PROCEDURES  Off-Site Access (continued) Agreement should include a clear provision for prior notification to the contractor before commencement of any construction or other site work that may damage or destroy any part of the cleanup related assets installed at the property (typically monitoring wells) So that the contractor has an opportunity to take necessary actions to remove, protect, properly abandon and/or repair or replace the asset, as applicable, at no cost to the property owner. It is helpful to explain to the property owner that such actions are necessary to ensure that damaged wells or borings are not left to act as open conduits that may spread contamination from all sources and violate well permits,

21 21 MISCELLANEOUS PROCEDURES  Repair or Replacement of Damaged or Destroyed Assets (section 7.17) Concerned about monitoring or remediation wells that are not excavated in their entirety or properly abandoned prior to construction Results in open conduit to the aquifer and potential spread of contamination Generally repair/replacement of on-site assets are the responsibility of the site owner or operator (though they may have recourse with others) Generally the cost to remove/repair/abandon/replace off-site assets is considered an eligible expense (though OS owner or operator has prior notification responsibility)

23 23 MISCELLANEOUS PROCEDURES  Clarification in section 6.3.3 – Overtime Oversight Template, like all other templates except for stand alone personnel rates, is not subject to consideration for overtime Use of backup spreadsheet is not appropriate and does not justify overtime for Oversight Overtime, when allowed for non-professional personnel, is based on individual not classification and requires specific employee time records as backup

24 24 MISCELLANEOUS PROCEDURES  Revised Table 9-1. Technical Report and Deliverable Related Time Frames Deleted references to 62-770 Added numerous other deliverable and review times used in preapproval - End – Questions?
