PROJECT QUESTION: Please note if temporary water service is necessary for the watermain work on this project.

Question:
Please note if temporary water service is necessary for the watermain work on this project.

Response:
No bid item is provided for temporary water service. Bidders shall be aware of the item ‘2504.602 Water Utility Hole’. This bid item is provided so the contractor is compensated for labor and equipment to expose the watermain in a couple predetermined areas near the project site. City forces will install a gate valve in these locations. The valve will be used to isolate the watermain, and allow the watermain to be lowered and the hydrants installed with no need for temporary water service. All costs for the City forces to complete this work will be borne by other parties, and the Contractor will not be charged for this work.
