otherwise specified in the General Requirements), Contractor shall submit to Engineer for timely
review:

1. a preliminary Progress Schedule indicating the times (numbers of days or dates) for starting
and completing the various stages of the Work, including any Milestones specified in the
Contract Documents;

2. a preliminary Schedule of Submittals; and

3. a preliminary Schedule of Values for all of the Work which includes quantities and prices of

A. The Contract Documents are complementary; what is required by one is as binding as if required
by all.

B. It is the intent of the Contract Documents to describe a functionally complete project (or part
thereof) to be constructed in accordance with the Contract Documents. Any labor,

Contract Documents or from prevailing custom or trade usage as being required to produce the
indicated result will be provided whether or not specifically called for, at no additional cost to
Owner.

C. Clarifications and interpretations of the Contract Documents shall be issued by Engineer as
provided in Article 9.

which Contractor discovers, or has actual knowledge of, and shall obtain a written
interpretation or clarification from Engineer before proceeding with any Work affected
thereby.

performance of the Work, Contractor discovers any conflict, error, ambiguity, or discrepancy
within the Contract Documents, or between the Contract Documents and (a) any applicable
Law or Regulation , (b) any standard, specification, manual, or code, or (c) any instruction of
any Supplier, then Contractor shall promptly report it to Engineer in writing. Contractor shall

one of the methods indicated in Paragraph 3.04.

3. Contractor shall not be liable to Owner or Engineer for failure to report any conflict, error,
ambiguity, or discrepancy in the Contract Documents unless Contractor had actual

discrepancy between the provisions of the Contract Documents and:

a. the provisions of any standard, specification, manual, or code, or the instruction of any
Supplier (whether or not specifically incorporated by reference in the Contract
Documents); or

b. the provisions of any Laws or Regulations applicable to the performance of the Work
(unless such an interpretation of the provisions of the Contract Documents would result in
violation of such Law or Regulation).

3.04 Amending and Supplementing Contract Documents

A. The Contract Documents may be amended to provide for additions, deletions, and revisions in
the Work or to modify the terms and conditions thereof by either a Change Order or a Work

the Project or any other project without written consent of Owner and Engineer and specific
written verification or adaptation by Engineer.

1.01 SUMMARY

A. Work Included:
1. Whenever possible throughout the Contract Documents, the minimum acceptable
quality of workmanship and materials has been defined either by manufacturer’s name

2. To facilitate CONTRACTOR’s understanding of the design intent, procedures have
been established for advance submittal of design data and for its review or rejection
by ENGINEER.
3. The type of submittal requirements specified in this section include shop drawings,
product data, samples, and other miscellaneous work related submittals.

B. Related work described elsewhere: More detailed requirements for submittals are
described in other sections of these specifications for some materials and equipment. They

infiltration into the sewer. If groundwater is below 2 feet above the sewer, the stretch of sewer shall be
plugged at its downstream end and water shall be placed inside the sewer to provide a minimum of
4 feet of head above the upstream end.

Measurements will then be taken to determine the rate of leakage out of the sewer. CONTRACTOR
shall furnish all labor and materials necessary for making the tests. The allowable leakage shall be as
indicated below for final acceptance.

At the conclusion of construction and before final acceptance of the Work, the downstream end of the
sewer will be measured for infiltration. Allowable infiltration shall not exceed 200 gallons/inch of pipe
diameter/mile/day for that portion of the Work under groundwater. If infiltration is exceeded, the leak or
leaks shall be located and repaired.

CONTRACTOR shall prepare all pipeline for testing and shall furnish all equipment, materials, tools,
and labor necessary for performance of the tests. Equipment for the low pressure air test of gravity
mains shall be equal in all operational aspects to that as furnished by Cherne Industrial, Inc, or United
