During preparation of the RFP, the disposal of excess topsoil and
excavation should be discussed with the Air Base regarding
whether disposal should be on or off the Air Base. Section 1.11.3
should then be edited accordingly.
Disposal of Excess Excavation
[Excess topsoil and excess excavation free from demolition debris
shall be stockpiled at a location on the Air Base shown on the
drawings or as directed by the Contracting Officer. Excess
excavation and topsoil shall be stockpiled separately. Topsoil or
excavation containing demolition debris shall be disposed of at a
site provided by the Contractor off the Air Base.]
excavation and topsoil shall be disposed of off the Air Base at a
location provided by the Contractor.]
CONTRACTOR HAUL ROUTES
Air Operations Area (AOA) Pavements
Waste and loose material on pavements open to aircraft operations
can cause damage to aircraft landing gear, propellers, or engines
(foreign object damage [FOD]). If material hauling to and from
the construction site occurs across an active airfield pavement,
the haul route shall be continuously cleaned by vacuum brooming
during hauling operations to keep the pavement clean.
Closed Airfield Pavements (Existing or New)
If hauling occurs over airfield pavements that are temporarily
closed, the pavements shall be cleaned as necessary during the
hauling operation to prevent pavement damage by hauling traffic
over loose rock or debris. The pavements shall be cleaned by the
Contractor and inspected by Air Base Management before reopening
the pavement to aircraft traffic.
If the existing Air Base roadway system is used for hauling
or access, the Contractor shall maintain the roads under
use in a clean condition by power-brooming or other methods
to the satisfaction of the Air Base Management.
If hauling occurs along a route across earth surfaces, with
or without turf, any dust that is generated by the hauling
operation shall be mitigated by watering or other approved
methods to the satisfaction of the Contracting Officer.
