Response: All MCES-FM and city lift station connection fittings, valves, bends, tees, restraints, etc. are to be incidental to the pipeline installation and/or incidental to the MH/structures? construction. The only items that I know of that are not incidental to pipeline (LF) or MH/structures would be the 6-inch and 8-inch gate valves near the city?s LS-13 Reno St station.
The Minnetonka and Wayzata watermain fittings related to the Hennepin County project are under item 183 (3455 lbs). Item 204 (8000 lbs) is for the fittings associated with the separate Wayzata watermain project. In hind sight we could have consolidated these two pay items into one line item.
