When this item is included in the Bid Form as a separate bid item, this item shall be included in the overall competitive bid. This item is to inform the Contractor that dewatering may be necessary and it is up to the Contractor to determine what dewatering methods are deemed necessary. If there is no separate bid item for dewatering, trench-dewatering shall be part of the trench excavation and pipe installation bid items. c. Pearock for the Dewatering Wells: The pearock required for the dewatering wells may be included in the bid item Pipe Bedding. 25. ABANDONED SANITARY SEWER MAIN AND MANHOLES a. Abandoned Sewer Main and Manholes: Abandoned sewer mains, sewer services and manholes in the common trench area of the replacement sewer main or sewer service shall be removed and disposed of by the Contractor. No open pipes shall be allowed on abandoned sewer mains or sewer services, all open pipes shall be concrete capped to prevent soil & water migration into the abandoned pipe. -13 of 27

16 26. TRENCH CONSTRUCTION a. Open Cut Trench: All sewer mains shall be installed in open cut trenches. The Engineer may permit short tunneling if deemed necessary. b. Protection of Workers: Contractor shall be in conformance with all federal and state regulations for the protection of the workers. c. Alignment & Grade: All trenches shall be excavated on alignment and grades furnished by the Engineer, see "Alignment & Grade". The Contractor shall provide a laser beam system and a level & level rod for maintaining alignment and grades. d. Trench-Dewatering: The trench is to be completely dry for pipe installation. Discharge from any trench-dewatering pumps shall be conducted to natural drainage channels, storm sewers, or as directed by applicable regulatory agencies. Unless otherwise specified, trench-dewatering shall be part of the trench excavation and pipe installation. e. Excavated Material: Excavated material shall be placed in a manner that will not obstruct the work nor endanger the workers or the public, or obstruct sidewalks, driveways, roadways, or other structures. Placement of excavated material shall be done in compliance with federal, state and local regulations. f. Salvage Gravel: Prior to beginning any excavation on graveled streets, the Contractor shall salvage all existing salvageable gravel and the same shall be relayed, shaped and graded into place upon completion of project. The Contractor is to avoid any mixing of clay or other foreign materials with the gravel. If the Contractor does not salvage the existing gravel, the Contractor shall be responsible for replacement of the wasted gravel at the Contractors expense. g. Street Surface Removal: Removal of asphalt, concrete, or other street surfacing shall be part of the trench excavation. Methods such as sawing, cutting, knifing, drilling or chipping shall be used to ensure the breakage of pavement along straight lines. The amount removed shall depend on the width of trench required for the installation of the pipe and the dimensions of the area into which wyes, manholes, specials or other structures will be installed. The dimensions of pavement removed shall not exceed the dimensions of the opening required for installation of pipe, wyes, manholes, specials, and other structures by more than 8" in any direction, unless safety issues or safety equipment warrant more room. All extra width excavations are to be prior approved by the Engineer. h. Trench Width: The width of the trench for the pipe shall be the same as that afforded by the single-pass capabilities of normal available excavating equipment, and shall be ample to permit the pipe to be laid and joined properly and to allow the backfill to be placed as specified. The desired trench widths are 6" to 8" maximum on each side of the pipe for pipe sizes up to 33". For pipe larger than 33" the trench width should be the diameter of the pipe plus 24". Trenches shall be of such extra width, when required, to permit the placement of timber supports, sheeting, bracing, and appurtenances as required for safety requirements. All extra width excavations are to be prior approved by the Engineer. i. Holes for Bells: Holes for the bells shall be provided at each joint, but shall be no larger than necessary to allow joint assembly and to ensure that the pipe barrel will lie flat on the trench bottom. Push-on type joints require only minimum depressions for bell holes. -14 of 27

17 j. Rock Excavation: When excavation of rock in encountered, all rock shall be removed to provide a clearance below and on each side of all pipe, valves, and fittings of at least 6" for pipe sizes 24" or smaller and 9" for pipe sizes larger than 24". When excavation is completed, a layer of appropriate backfill material shall be placed on the bottom of the trench to the previously mentioned depths, leveled, and tamped. These clearances and bedding procedures shall also be observed for pieces of concrete or masonry and other debris or subterranean structures, such as masonry walls, piers, or foundations that may be encountered during excavation. This installation procedure shall also be followed when gravel formations containing loose boulders greater than approximately 8" in diameter are encountered. In all cases, the specified clearances shall be maintained between the bottom of all pipe and appurtenances and any part, projection, or point of rock, boulder, or stone of sufficient size and placement that, in the opinion of the Engineer, could cause a fulcrum point or point load. k. Crossing over Existing Trench: Should the trench pass over another sewer main or other previous excavation, the trench bottom shall be sufficiently compacted to provide support equal to that of the native soil or to conform to other regulatory requirements in a manner that will prevent damage to the existing installation. l. Private Property Protection: Trees, shrubs, sidewalks, fences, and all other property and surface structures shall be protected during construction, unless their removal is shown in the plans and specifications or approved by the Engineer. Any cutting of tree roots or branches shall be done only as approved by the Engineer. m. Utility & Structure Support/Protection: Temporary support, adequate protection, and maintenance of all underground and surface structures, drains, sewers, and other obstructions encountered in the progress of the work shall be provided in accordance with specifications or applicable regulations. n. Property Restoration: All properties that have been disturbed shall be restored as nearly as practical to their original condition. o. Unsuitable Subgrade: When the subgrade is found to include ashes, cinders, refuse, organic material, or other unsuitable material, such material shall be removed to a minimum of at least 6" below the bottom of the pipe or to the depth required by the Engineer. The removed material shall be replaced, under the direction of the Engineer, with clean, stable backfill material, such as 3/8 x 1/8 pearock or 1½ x ¾ rock, unless otherwise directed. The bedding shall be consolidated and leveled so that the pipe will lie flat on the trench bottom. When the bottom of the trench or the subgrade is found to consist of material that is unstable to such a degree that, in the judgment of the Engineer, it cannot be removed, a foundation for the pipe and/or appurtenance shall be constructed using pilings, treated timber, concrete, or other materials, at the direction of the Engineer. p. Roadway & Site Cleanup: Contractor shall leave all work sites clear of excess debris at the end of each working day. Excess debris would include clay, black dirt, gravel, pea rock, construction materials, equipment, and etc. -15 of 27

18 q. Traffic-Control: Appropriate traffic-control devices shall be provided in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations to regulate, warn, and guide vehicular and pedestrian traffic at the work site. Barricades and signing shall be in conformance with the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices. A guide to be used for signing is "Work Area Traffic Control Manual" published by the city of Sioux Falls and available through their Traffic Engineer, or Part VI, "Traffic Controls for Street and Highway Construction and Maintenance Operations" from the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, which is available from the Superintendent of Documents, US Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C The Contractor shall provide the appropriate signs, fencing and barricades surrounding the trench areas for vehicular and pedestrian protection. No street shall be closed unless written permission is obtained from the City Engineer or his designee. Permission to close a street shall be requested at the time an excavation permit is obtained. 27. PIPE INSTALLATION a. Material Handling & Examination: Proper implements, tools, and facilities shall be provided and used for the safe and convenient performance of the work. All pipe, wyes, tees, or specials shall be lowered carefully into the trench by means of a derrick, ropes, or other suitable tools or equipment, in such a manner as to prevent damage to sewer main materials, protective coatings and linings. Under no circumstances shall sewer main materials be dropped or dumped into the trench. Where practical, the trench should be dewatered prior to installation of the pipe. All pipe, in-line wyes, in-line tees, saddles and other appurtenances shall be examined carefully for damage and other defects immediately before installation. Defective materials shall be replaced or marked and held for inspection by the Engineer, who may prescribe corrective repairs or reject the materials. All lumps, blisters, and excess coating shall be removed from the socket and plain ends of each pipe, and the outside of the plain end and the inside of the bell shall be wiped clean and dry and be free from dirt, sand, grit, or any foreign materials before the pipe is laid. Foreign material shall be prevented from entering the pipe while it is being placed in the trench. No debris, tools, clothing, or other materials shall be placed in the pipe at any time. b. Alignment & Grade: As each length of pipe is placed in the trench, the joint shall be assembled and the pipe brought to the correct alignment and grade. Alignment & grade shall be determined with the aid of a laser beam machine. The Contractor, with the use of a level and level rod, is to double check the laser beam alignment & grades against the grade stakes provided by the Engineer. The pipe shall be secured in place with approved backfill material. All pipe shall be laid upgrade with the spigot ends of the pipe pointing in the direction of the flow. c. Minimum Cover for Sewer Pipe: The minimum cover allowed over a sewer main is 4.00, and this may not be allowed if the Engineer deems that the cover material will allow additional freezing depth or the sewage flows are minimal to allow freezing. Any sewer main with less than 5.00 of cover shall require the Engineers approval prior to installation. -16 of 27

19 d. Watertight Plug: At no time shall ground water, rain water, etc., be allowed into the sanitary sewer system. At times when pipe-laying is not in progress, the open ends of pipe shall be closed by a watertight plug or other means approved by the Engineer. When practical, the plug shall remain in place until the trench is pumped completely dry. Care must be taken to prevent pipe flotation, should the trench fill with water. e. Pipe Installation: Pipe installation shall conform to the Manufacturers recommended methods. 28. JOINT ASSEMBLY a. Concrete Pipe Joint Deflection: No deflection is allowed in any concrete piping for sewer mains. All deflections are to be made at the manholes. b. PVC Pipe Joint Deflection: Prior approval is required from the Engineer before any horizontal deflection is allowed in sewer mains. When it is necessary to deflect sewer pipe from a straight line in the horizontal plane, the amount of joint deflection shall not exceed 80% of the maximum deflection allowed by the pipe Manufacturer. c. Cutting Pipe: Cutting pipe for insertion of wyes, tees, manholes, etc. shall be done in conformance with all safety recommendations of the Manufacturer of the cutting equipment. Cutting shall be done in a safe, workmanlike manner without creating damage to the pipe. Cut ends and rough edges shall be ground smooth, and for push-on joint connections the cut end shall be beveled by methods recommended by the Manufacturer and approved by the Engineer. 29. BACKFILLING a. Backfill: Backfill shall also be accomplished in accordance with the specified laying conditions as described under the pipe installations section. b. Backfill Material: The Contractor shall use previously excavated soil for trench backfill above the pipe bedding to maintain continuity of the soil type across the roadway section. All backfill material shall be free from debris, cinders, ashes, refuse, vegetable or organic material, boulders, rocks or stones, frozen soil, or other material that, in the opinion of the Engineer, is unsuitable. Backfill material shall not be installed in any trench which has standing water in the trench. Backfill material from four inches (4") below the bottom of the pipe to six inches (6") above the top of the pipe shall be 3/8 x1/8 pearock, unless otherwise specified. Stones larger than 3 in diameter shall not be placed within two feet (2 ) from the top of the pipe. From two feet (2 ) from the top of the pipe to the subgrade of the pavement, material containing stones up to 8" in their greatest dimension may be used, unless otherwise specified. When the type of backfill material is not indicated on the plans or is not specified, the excavated material may be used, provided that such material consists of loam, clay, sand, gravel, or other materials that, in the opinion of the Engineer, are suitable for backfilling. If excavated material is indicated on the drawings or specified for backfill, and there is a deficiency due to a rejection of a part thereof, the required amount of Engineer approved material shall be provided by the Contractor. The Engineer shall compensate the Contractor for the replacement of the rejected backfill material under the appropriate bid item in the bid form. The Contractor shall be responsible for the removal and disposal of all rejected materials. -17 of 27

20 For purposes of definition: (a) sand is material graded from fine to coarse, containing less than 10 percent, by weight, of loam and clay that passes a 3/4" sieve with no more than 5 percent, by weight, remaining on a no. 4 sieve; (b) gravel is a reasonably uniform combination, containing no boulders or stones larger than 2" and not containing excessive amounts of clay and loam; (c) crushed stone is limestone or dolomite ledge-rock material that all passes a 1/2" sieve with no more that 25 percent passing a no. 100 sieve. c. Backfill Compaction: Backfill in existing or future street locations shall be compacted in no more than two foot (2') lifts. The minimum allowable compaction shall be 95% of maximum dry density as determined by the latest version of ASTM D698 (Standard Proctor). If backfill soil moisture content is greater that the optimum moisture range that will allow the Contractor to meet the density requirements with a reasonable level of effort, the Contractor shall air dry the soil outside the trench to achieve the desired moisture range prior to backfill and compaction. If backfill soil moisture content is less than the optimum moisture range that will allow the Contractor to meet the density requirements with a reasonable level of effort, the Contractor shall add and mix water to the soil to achieve the desired moisture range for compaction. The Engineer may choose to hire a reputable firm to take random compaction tests of the backfilled trench material. If any of these tests indicate that the material has not been compacted to the required density, the Contractor shall recompact the backfill material at no additional cost to the Owner. At all locations which the compaction tests have failed, an additional compaction test shall be conducted after recompacting the trench at the Contractors expense. When special backfill compaction procedures are required, they shall be accomplished in accordance with project specifications of applicable federal, state or local regulations. d. Backfilling with Pipe Joints Accessible: Newly installed pipelines are normally tested after backfilling. When unusual conditions require that leakage testing be accomplished before completion of backfilling or with pipe joints accessible for examination, sufficient backfill material shall be placed over the pipe barrel between the joints to prevent movement, and due consideration shall be given to restraining thrust forces during the testing. In particular, restrained-joint systems which derive their stability from the interaction of the pipe and soil, should be backfilled prior to testing. 30. FITTING INSTALLATION a. Fitting Inspection: Prior to installation, in-line wyes, in-line tees, saddles, and other specialties shall be inspected by the Contractor for handling damage and cracks. Defective materials shall be held for inspection by the Engineer and/or replaced at no extra cost to the Owner. b. Fitting Installation: In-line wyes, in-line tees, saddles, and other specialties shall be joined to the pipe in the manner specified in the pipe installation section for cleaning, laying and joining pipe. All in-line wyes, in-line tees, or saddles which are not being extended immediately are to be glued and capped with a preformed watertight cap or watertight plug. The locations for all in-line wyes, in-line tees, or saddles which are not being extended immediately are to be recorded by the Contractor and turned over to the Engineer. -18 of 27
