Evaluation & Repair Guidelines for New Drainage Pipe
XXDOT requires inspection on newly-installed drainage pipe to determine the condition of the pipe. Initial analysis shall be performed upon delivery of PII Report to determine if any major problems exist with the contractor’s installation methods. The analysis of the information provided in the PII Report will be performed by an Engineer within XXDOT. The following criteria will be applied to all pipe material types and will be utilized to determine the course of action, if any, to be taken when there are cracks, deflections, bulges, creases, tears, spalls, or delaminations in the pipe. The final decision on course of action and acceptability will be determined by the XXDOT Engineer.
