c) Description of existing materials, systems and items to
remain as part of the work. Include statements as to the condition
of such items. Report on any samples taken.
d) A summary of existing equipment requiring relocation.
Include nameplate data and utility requirements.
Results of load tests, if applicable.
f) Utility Data Sheets and hydrant flow test data. (NOTE:
UTILITY DATA SHEETS ARE REQUIRED AT THE SCHEMATIC AND DESIGN
DEVELOPMENT SUBMISSIONS AND ARE TO BE DISTRIBUTED SEPARATELY FROM THE
SITE INVESTIGATION REPORT. SEE THE APPENDIX "A" FOR DISTRIBUTION
REQUIREMENTS. ALSO, DATA ON THE HYDRANT FLOW TESTS IS TO BE PROVIDED
WITH THE FIRE PROTECTION DESIGN ANALYSIS AND IN THE PROJECT
SPECIFICATIONS. SEE THE CHAPTER TITLED "FACILITIES PROTECTION
The A/E shall prepare a topographic survey of the area indicated in
the Appendix "A". Unless otherwise agreed to at fee negotiations,
all site plans shall be prepared to a 1" = 20'-0 scale. The survey
shall show all control points, both natural and man made site surface
features, and utilities. Elevations shall be taken to obtain one
foot contours and readings to one-hundredths of a foot shall be taken
on paving and other man made features.
The topographic survey shall set a sufficient number of survey points
to serve as initial horizontal and vertical control points for
construction of the project. (Field layout during construction is
the responsibility of the contractor.) The horizontal control points
and bench marks shall be shown and identified on the drawings. For
"on-base" projects, all survey reference points shall be tied into
the existing grid and bench mark systems, when available. Provide
horizontal controls from existing structures or site features and
vertical control from an existing bench mark when a base coordinate
system is not available. Give a complete description of the bench
mark and show its location on the drawings. Select a bench mark
which will not be disturbed by construction.
The topographic survey shall locate all natural features such as
springs, trees, rock outcrops, wetlands, etc. Locate, size and
identify existing trees and vegetation and identify the density of
same. The limits and location of wetlands shall be surveyed and
indicated on the site plans.
The topographic survey shall locate and define all existing man made
surface features such as buildings, paved areas, curbs, etc. and
utilities (above and below ground) crossing or immediately adjacent
to the project limits. The A/E shall be allowed to search the record
drawings at the ACTIVITY for existing utility data sheets to assist
in this effort. The topographic survey shall show utility line
sizes, pipe inverts, direction of flow, and the top and invert
elevations of all manholes, catch basins, and culverts. Normally,
