OUTPUT PRODUCTS (DELIVERABLES) 2.3.1 The State’s Project Manager will define the storm sewer infrastructure system project limits to be investigated and documented, herein referred to as the “MAP” (See Exhibit B). The Contractor will use the MAP(s) to locate intended features. 22.214.171.124 The State will label/number all known features on the MAP. All newly identified or non-labeled features will be labeled by the contractor. All labels should be labeled in concert with known features if possible. (Example; known feature ID 1000, discovered feature ID 1000a, another discovered feature ID 1000b). 2.3.2 All other storm sewer infrastructure features not identified on the MAP will follow the procedures outlined below. 126.96.36.199 All storm sewer infrastructure additions or changes will be identified on the MAP herein referred to as “MAP EDITS” 188.8.131.52 MAP EDITS will be clearly hand-drawn on the MAP, and will reference and include the approximate location, temporary identification number, flow direction, feature type, feature size, and feature length (if appropriate and other descriptive information as deemed appropriate by the field personnel). 184.108.40.206 MAP EDITS will be consistent on all MAP pages; inconsistencies will be returned for correction and may not be accepted by the State’s Project Manager. 220.127.116.11 MAP EDITS include; structures found in the field within MnDOT right-of-way or project boundary that are not shown on the MAP. 18.104.22.168 The Contractor will perform GPS (Global Position System) locations on all MAP EDITS. 22.214.171.124 Features requiring MAP EDITS will be televised or captured with digital photography (All pipes, culverts, catch basins, manholes, aprons, etc). MAP EDITS will be cleaned as necessary to televise and assess the storm sewer features. 126.96.36.199 MAP EDITS and other storm sewer infrastructure features identified by the State’s Project Manager will be inspected by using the appropriate HYDINFRA Inventory / Inspection Data Form (See exhibit B). 188.8.131.52 The Contractor will submit the MAP EDITS to the State. 2.3.3 Contractor will televise and record all storm sewer infrastructure system features (pipes, culverts, manholes, catch basins, drop inlets, etc.) within the project limits as define on the MAP. 184.108.40.206 Video product will be recorded in digital format (MPEG-1 or MPEG-4). 220.127.116.11 Video files will contain only one feature per MPEG file (example; one pipe, one catch basin, or one structure = 3 MPEG files). 18.104.22.168 Pipe features are segmented from one feature to the next (Example: apron – pipe – apron or catch basin – pipe – catch basin or apron – pipe – catch basin). MPEG files for the above examples would include one for each feature; hence 9 MPEG files would be generated. 22.214.171.124 Contractor will deliver all video MPEG files on a compact disk (CD) or temporary external database to the State’s Project Manager. 126.96.36.199.1 MPEG files structure will be delivered to the State by categorizing files with the appropriate MAP pages (example; MPEG files for MAP page 1 will have a file created that only includes those files associated with MAP page 1 and any overlapping storm sewer feature found on following MAP page. 188.8.131.52.2 MPEG text files (.txt files) will be removed before submitting files to the State.

2.8 HYDRAULIC CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS – OPTIONAL TASK AT DIRECTION OF PROJECT MANAGER
Page 4 of 5
Scope of Work and Deliverables 2.8.1
Contractor will identify storm sewer infrastructure features which require cleaning, and provide a list and justification for cleaning (video CD’s or digital photographs) to the State’s Project Manager before cleaning (other that spot debris removal). Cleaning may be necessary if enough sediment / debris exists within the feature to prevent an accurate overall assessment of the feature or limits the ability of the camera to inspect the entire feature. Spot removal of obstructions or debris accumulations is expected and will be performed by the Contractor without prior State’s approval or notice. Cleaning of pipe features less than 24 inches in diameter may occur without pre-approval by the State Project Manager if four inches or more material exists within the pipe for the majority of their length. Cleaning of pipes that are 24 inches or greater may occur without pre-approval by the State Project Manager if six inches or more of material exists within the pipe for the majority of their length. Metal pipes within the project corridor will require cleaning if sediment within a pipe does not allow the televising to accurately assess the bottom of the pipe for the majority of the length. Cleaning of all pipes less than 24 inches in diameter will require approval from the State’s Project manager if the pipe is ≥50% full of sediment / debris for the majority of their length. Cleaning of all pipes 24 inches or greater will require approval from the State’s Project Manager if the pipe is ≥33% full of sediment / debris for the majority of their length. State’s Project Manager may require additional storm sewer system feature cleaning as necessary, based on review of video inspections. Contractor will dispose of materials according to all Minnesota Pollution Control Standards and will document such disposal for the States review. The State’s Project Manager may identify site(s) to dispose of such material; otherwise contractor will be responsible for identifying and dumping at an approved location. 18.104.22.168 Spoil materials and debris will not be deposited within MnDOT right-of-way. 22.214.171.124 No hazardous material is anticipated to be encountered in the vicinity of the project. 126.96.36.199 If hazardous material is encountered, Contractor is to suspend work immediately in the vicinity of the hazardous material, notify the State’s Project Manager, and quarantine equipment which has come in contact with the hazardous material. 188.8.131.52 The State’s Project Manager will determine the course of action to be followed. Costs of identifying, handling, and disposal of hazardous material will be considered extra services and outside the scope of this project.
