DEVELOPER (OR CONTRACTOR) shall ensure all new manholes show no visible signs of leakage or that the construction of the manhole causes no concern for safety in entering or exiting the manhole.
DEVELOPER (OR CONTRACTOR) shall ensure an internal/external chimney seal manufactured by Adapter, Inc. is installed on any newly constructed manhole.
DEVELOPER (OR CONTRACTOR) shall ensure any connection to an existing manhole be properly grouted and sealed to keep from leaking. Developer (or Contractor) will only be responsible for any connections made to an existing manhole - not the condition of the manhole prior to the connection.
Manholes shall be inspected by District Inspectors. Failed construction of new manholes or connections to existing manholes must be re-inspected by a District Inspector until such time as the inspection passes.
Significant issues surface with manholes being covered up in the early stages of projects by primarily service contractors and landscape contractors. For this reason, manholes will be inspected prior to acceptance of the sewer facilities by the West Central Conservancy District and two (2) additional times prior to the expiration of the bond. Repair and/or adjustment of manholes as a result of these inspections will be the responsibility of the DEVELOPER (OR CONTRACTOR) or become a claim against the Bond.
