PROJECT MESSAGE: Is it the intention of the specification regarding Select Topsoil Borrow to obtain this material from onsite as suggested in Div S? If it is intended to re-use onsite material should the description be: Select Topsoil Special deleting the word borrow?

Question:
Is it the intention of the specification regarding Select Topsoil Borrow to obtain this material from onsite as suggested in Div S? If it is intended to re-use onsite material should the description be: Select Topsoil Special deleting the word borrow?

Response:
It is unlikely any salvaged topsoil from the project area will meet the gradation requirements of Item 2575.607 Select Topsoil Borrow Special. If salvaged topsoil meeting the gradation requirements of the Select Topsoil Borrow Special is available, this material can be reused. The Item 2575.607 description will remain Select Topsoil Borrow Special for the purposes of this project.
