Subject
Culvert Clean Out
Enquiry
Section 2.4.6.1 (page 71 and page 75; later replaced via Addendum No. 1) – The DB RFP requires “Culverts not being replaced during this Contract shall be cleaned out.” In many instances, these existing culverts have accumulated natural sediment and / or established a stable watercourse, and the requirement to perform cleanout activities may introduce undesirable hydraulic and / or environmental implications. Would the Ministry consider eliminating this requirement in favour of enabling the Design Builder to determine which culverts warrant cleanout based upon existing characteristics?

As per Section 2.4.6.1, Drainage Design and Construction, the RFP states: The Design-Builder shall ensure that adverse drainage impacts to the highway right-of-way and upstream or downstream riparian landowners will not occur. The Design-Builder shall ensure the Work will have no negative impacts to upstream and downstream properties and users.” Therefore, if the DB Contractor feels any work will introduce undesirable hydraulic and / or environmental implications, the work shall be performed (or not performed) in accordance with the requirements of the RFP.
