the supply source. Correct, to the satisfaction of the Engineer, or remove conditionally approved materials incorporated into the work that subsequently fail to meet contract requirements. Unless otherwise specified, use new materials for the work.
106.02 Local Materials Sources
The Agency may designate possible sources of local materials. Calculate the amount of equipment and work necessary to produce a material that meets specifications using these sources. Expect variations in material quality within the deposits. Procure material from designated portions of the deposit. The Engineer will reject material if it is unacceptable or fails to meet contract requirements.
The Agency may acquire and make available the right to take materials from designated sources, including the right to use the property as specified, or for plant site, stockpiles, and haul roads. If the Agency chooses to use this procedure, the contract will define the acquisitions and rights provided.
If material is obtained from sources not designated in the contract, acquire the rights to take materials from these sources and pay all related costs, including those for increased haul length and for exploring and developing sources.
Use material from other than designated sources only after Agency tests indicate that the material is of equal or better value than the Agency-designated source and after its conditional acceptance is received. Locate borrow pits, gravel pits, and quarry sites out of sight of the highway.
Excavate pits and quarries so that no water collects or stands on the site. Return the work site to a neat, presentable condition following the work.
For Contractor-acquired rights to borrow sources, perform required grading and reclamation, as required under the agreement with the property owner, when work is completed. Final project acceptance requires receipt of a written release from the property owner indicating that the Contactor has satisfied all agreement conditions.
106.03 Samples, Tests, and Cited Specifications
Incorporate into the work only material that has been inspected, tested, and accepted by the Agency. Remove unacceptable materials from the site at no cost to the Agency.
Unless otherwise designated, the Agency will perform testing at its expense using the most recent standard test methods of the Agency, or AASHTO or ASTM tests in effect at the time the job is advertised.
Test method precedence is as follows:
A. The Agency’s Standard Materials Test Methods
An Agency representative will perform or observe sampling and sample splitting of materials.
