BRAN MANHOLE CHECKLIST 1. Handhole at George Reynolds Library Inspected on 5/24/04 Handhole had some debris in it which we removed. The innerduct in the handhole was not plugged, we filled innerduct with sealant. Vertical racks are not applicable. Splice case was in good condition (outer closure filled with encapsulant), the BRAN cable was labeled, and warning labels are not applicable. 2. Manhole 22nd and Spruce Inspected on 5/24/04 Manhole had some water and no debris. The ducts were plugged in the manhole. Vertical racks were secured to the walls. Steps and splice case are secured, (well above the water), the BRAN cable is labeled, and BRAN warning sign is in place. 3. Manhole (Public Safety Building) Inspected on 5/24/04 Manhole had no debris, but ICG fiber is coiled but not racked, (only BRAN fiber is coiled and racked). The ducts were plugged in the manhole. Vertical racks were secured to the walls. Steps and splice case are secured, the BRAN cable is labeled, and the BRAN warning sign is in place. 3. a. Handhole in grass at Public Safety Building. Inspected 5/24/04 Handhole had no debris. All of the ducts in the handhole are plugged. Vertical racks and steps are not applicable. Splice case is in good condition. Handhole is dry.

Vertical racks and steps are secured to the walls. Cable and splice case are secure, (this location has an extended cover on the splice enclosure—it does not have an outer cover— the manhole is very dry). The BRAN cable is labeled and BRAN warning signs are in place. I will check the original contract documents regarding the outer cover. 5. Handhole 47th Street and Pearl Parkway Inspected 5/24/04 The handhole was full of spider webs, which we swept out. The ducts were not plugged upon our arrival, but we sealed the ducts with foam. Vertical racks and steps are not applicable at this location. The cable and splice cases are secure, as well as being labeled. A BRAN warning sign is not applicable at this location. This splice also has an extended cover on it and is not encapsulated. The handhole is dry. 6. ICG Manhole (East) Inspected 5/24/04 The manhole was free of debris. The ducts are plugged. This manhole did not have vertical racks and steps. The cable was coiled and the splice case is secure. The BRAN cable was not labeled correctly, (label left on cutout section), we placed label on BRAN 96 strand backbone. There is not a BRAN manhole warning sign in this location. 7. ICG Manhole (West) Inspected 5/24/04 This manhole was in poor condition. There was debris in the manhole upon our arrival. The BRAN warning signs were ignored. The cable was not racked, (even though there are racks installed), and labels were left on cutout sections of the BRAN cable. The splice case was lying on the floor of the manhole. The ducts are sealed in the manhole and the splice case is now secure. The label has been attached to the correct cable.
