CITY OF GAINESVILLE - PUBLIC
   UTILITIES DEPARTMENT

REVISION DATE: JANUARY 2003




 This list of guidelines has been put together as an aid for developers during the permitting
 process. Although an effort has been made to include all City standards pertaining to the
 development of the Water and Sewer System, other items may be necessary as required
 by the Public Utilities Department. This listing should not be considered as a static
 document and therefore, every effort to obtain the latest revision should be made.
 Contact the Public Utilities Department Engineering and Planning Division at (770) 535-
 6892 for the latest revision of this document and/or the City's “Standard Specifications
 for Water Mains and Sanitary Sewers.”

    total lot square footage, the square footage excluded, and the square footage remaining (total
    minus excluded)
Separate:

    seasonal high water table, % of slope, estimated percolation rate, depth to optimum
    percolation, provided by soil scientist
• If soil map is updated, must submit a copy of the new soil map showing soil boundaries and
    boring locations
