It is the responsibility of the project inspector to perform tasks required of them by the DSA and the District such as performing periodic inspections of the work, advising the contractor of nonconforming work, keeping accurate records, and certifying that the completed work has been done in accordance with the DSA approved plans and specifications. DSA requires the District to employ a DSA inspector for the duration of the project.

The initial proposal was approved by the Governing Board on September 21, 2016. Amendment No. 1 was approved by the Governing Board on April 19, 2017. Fee amendment No. 2 is needed since the work is taking longer to complete and requires more inspection hours than initially planned.

Financial Impact:
$6,500 from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Approve fee amendment No. 2 from McCarthy Inspection Services, Inc.
Attachments:
Fee Amendment No.2
X.E.3. Proposal for Storm Water Pollution and Prevention Plan and Permit Registration Documents for Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project (Earth Resources, Inc.)

Speaker:
Michael Otavka, Director of Facilities, Planning and Construction
Quick Summary / Abstract:

Proposal from Earth Resources, Inc., for Storm Water Pollution and Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and registration documents for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project.

Rationale:
The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) requires that owners of all construction projects in California involving grading or other ground-disturbing activities greater than one acre in size prepare and maintain a SWPPP. Since the construction and laydown area for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project will exceed one acre, a permit must be obtained, and a SWPPP developed and maintained for the duration of the project. This proposal from Earth Resources, Inc., covers the development of the SWPPP and the application for the permit only. This initial work needs to be done and the application made prior to construction work starting on the site.
Financial Impact:
$ 4,950 plus reimbursable expenses from Measure SA (Fund 21).
Recommended Motion:
Approve attached proposal from Earth Resources, Inc.,  for the Storm Water Pollution and Prevention Plan and permit registration documents for the Sierra Vista Junior High School Classroom Addition Project.
