reduce discharges of pollutants associated with construction into storm drains and receiving
waters. Contractor shall prepare and implement a BMP plan and submit copies to EMWD for
review and approval prior to construction.

FOR POND DEEPENING PROJECTS, use the following wording:

SC-09. Compliance with Storm Water Regulations (NPDES) for Storm Water Discharges

the following paragraph:

SC-10.        Percentage of Work by Contractor, per Section F- General Conditions. The
first paragraph under F-14. Obligations of Contractor is revised to read as follows:
Contractor shall perform, with his own organization, contract work amounting to at least 50
percent of the contract except that any designated “Specialty Items” may be performed by

When an entire item is subcontracted, the value of work subcontracted will be based on the
contract unit price. When a portion of an item is subcontracted, the value of work
subcontracted will be based on the estimated percentage of the contract unit price. This will
be determined from information submitted by the Contractor and subject to approval by the
District.

PART 1       GENERAL

1.01   SUMMARY

       A.    Section Includes: Preparation, format, and submittal of Schedule of
             Values.

       B.    The Schedule of Values will establish unit prices for individual items of
             work.

       C.    The Schedule of Values will be the basis for payment of contract work
             and will be used to establish payment for any “extra work”, i.e., work
             requested which is beyond the scope of the original contract.

       D.    The attached Schedule of Values is an acceptable form. It represents
             the minimum level of detail required to quantify the scope of work.
             The contractor may provide an additional breakdown of any of the
             items listed below. The contractor shall verify all quantities and items
             of work prior to submittal.

1.02   PREPARATION

       A. Prepare satisfactory Schedule of Values identifying costs of items of work
          shown in sample included at the end of this Section.

       B. Assign unit prices to items of work and calculate total prices, which
          aggregate the Contract Price. Base unit prices on costs associated with
          scheduled activities for each item of work. For any bid item broken
          down into unit prices, Contractor shall verify that the unit cost of the
          items does not extend beyond two decimal places and that the unit
          cost when multiplied by the unit quantity equals the exact bid item
          value with no remainder.

1.03   SUBMITTAL

       1.    Submit preliminary Schedule of Values at the preconstruction
             meeting. DO NOT SUBMIT THE SCHEDULE OF VALUES WITH
             YOUR BID PACKAGE.

       B.    Submit corrected Schedule of Values within 10 days upon receipt of
             reviewed Schedule of Values.

       C.    Upon request, support prices with data which will substantiate their
             correctness.
