Question=Question=1- Clarify what you expect and what you intend to pay for under  Lump Sum Item # 4. Special Provision Sect 10-1.03 including refrence to Water Pollution Plan requirements, paid for as part of Item 2, and the second paragraph of "Measurement and Payment" are ambiguous at the least and contradictory at the worst.
 

  • 1-  The lump sum payment for Street Sweeping covers any sweeping that is required by the approved  Water Pollution Control Program (WPCP) and as described in Section 10-1.04  "STREET SWEEPING" of the Special Provisions. 
     
    10.1.04  STREET SWEEPING
    Street sweeping shall be conducted where sediment is tracked from the project site onto paved roads, as described in the approved Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan in accordance with "Water Pollution Control" of these special provisions, and as directed by the Engineer.
    Street sweeping shall be one of the water pollution control practices for sediment control.  The Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan shall include the use of street sweeping.  Street sweeping shall be performed in accordance with Section 4, SC—7 in the Construction Site Best Management Practices Manual of the Caltrans Storm Water Quality Handbooks.
    The number of street sweepers shall be as designated in the approved Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan.  The Contractor shall maintain at least one sweeper on the project site at all times during the period that sweeping work is required.  Sweepers shall be self-loading, motorized, and shall have spray nozzles.  Sweepers may include a vacuum apparatus.
    Street sweeping shall commence at the beginning of clearing and grubbing and shall continue until completion of the project, or as directed by the Engineer. Street sweeping shall be performed immediately after soil disturbing activities occur or offsite tracking of material is observed.  Street sweeping shall be performed so that dust is minimized.  If dust generation is excessive or sediment pickup is ineffective as determined by the Engineer, the use of water or a vacuum will be required.
    At the option of the Contractor, collected material may be temporarily stockpiled in accordance with the approved Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan.  Collected material shall be disposed of at least once per week.
    Material collected during street sweeping operations shall be disposed of in conformance with Section 7—1.13, "Disposal of Material Outside The Highway Right Of Way," of the Standard Specifications.
