2011 Design Compliance Standards
Standard Specifications: The Standard Specifications have been designed into a bid-ready format. All engineers and contractors will be expected to use these Standard Specifications during the design, bidding and construction process to ensure uniformity in standards, materials, products, and construction. These Standard Specifications represent the minimum requirements; additional specifications or requirements may be added to projects on an as-needed basis.
Standard Drawing Details: The Standard Drawing Details have been updated with clarifications that have been discovered from the previous publication. New for 2011, Section 5. Lift Stations Details will be handled differently. See note on Standard Details Index - Section 5 for additional information. Additionally, the Reclaim Details have been separated from the Potable Water Details into its own Section 9.
Minimum Drawing & Submittal Requirements for Water, Wastewater and Reclaimed Water Projects: This new version incorporates the Site Plan Review (formerly known as the DRC) process in an effort to streamline the application process. Clarification regarding easements, landscaping, and a number of other issues have also been incorporated.
CADD Standards: All record drawings submitted must be accompanied by its corresponding CADD files for uploading the location of assets into the Geo Database system. These CADD Standards are being introduced to provide guidance to the CADD Technician on the proper geographic orientation (coordinate system and datum), model space, drawing units, snapping & connectivity, layer formatting, and other related issues for properly setting up CADD files in order to seamlessly import them into Geo Database system.
