On the sheet I-2 (sheet 10 of 20) there seems to be a problem with the cross up in valves 2 and 3. Following the line in from the shrub bubbler head on the right, the line goes in to valve #3. Following the line out from valve #2 there is a cross over to the shrub heads on the left.  This merges the right center spray heads (11 and 12) with the shrub bubbler heads on the left.

  • Valve 1 goes to the #7, Valve 2 goes to the #8s at the toe of slope (at the back of the berm), Valve 3 goes to the protected #8's at the on the front of the berm, and Valve 4 goes to the c2 bubbler heads. There are only two valves servicing the c2 heads. Valve 4 services the east side ot the berm and Valve 6 services the west side of the berm (the cut off line is the last #7 head on the left middle of berm).

Plan Sheet / Specification Reference=

On the sheet IQ-1 (sheet 15 of 20) there are 80 plants for the total ‘C-2’ heads on system ‘B’. The actual plan shows 82 plants. Also, if the plan is to place two heads at each tree, why are the totals for each lateral odd?

  • C2 bubblers were called at to be 2 bubblers for #15 container and 1 bubbler for #1 and #5 tree/shrub (see note 10 on SD-1).
