barricades to keep trucks and equipment a minimum of ten feet away from the bulk-
26. BAMBOO: Completely remove from the site the cut pieces of bamboo located south of
the earth dam location and west of the future Fort site.
27. PREPARATION FOR FILL: Remove existing trees less than 4 inches trunk diameter as
directed by the Architect, stumps and underbrush, and clear and grub all compres-
sible soil material down to firm sand from all areas to receive fill prior to plac-
ing the fill. All materials and debris removed from the fill areas shall be imme-
diately removed from the site and legally disposed. All other trees and underbrush
shall be protected as noted.
28. EARTH DAM: Clear and grub ditch bottom under dam area down to firm sand and remove
all debris as noted above. Fill and compact in accordance with notes Nos. 29
29. TOP SOIL: Strip available top soil from areas to receive fill and excavation areas
and stockpile for use in final grading at a location on the site approved by the
30. RUBBLE EXCAVATION: Excavate existing rubble fill and trash from below the proposed
Fort location to the limits as indicated. Borings indicate that the existing rub-
ble varied in depth from 1 to 3 feet (2 ft. average) and generally consisted of bro-
ken glass, bottles, rubber and cans. Utilize track-mounted equipment or a dragline.
Excavate rubble fill in a series of small excavations to minimize the time of expo-
sure of open excavations to the relatively high ground water level. Maintain the
water level in the excavations one foot below the excavation bottom or, if not
possible, to the bottom of the excavation by pumping from a sump located adjacent
or along the excavation perimeter. Pumped ground water shall be directed to the
on-site holding basin and not into the wet areas or waterway. All excavated rubble
fill and trash shall be placed in a single 12-inch lift in areas where no future

perty as part of a later phase of the work. The area for such is indicated on the
plan and is staked out on the site. Contractor shall excavate this area to a depth
of approximately 3 feet along the eastern side, gradually sloping to a maximum depth
of 6 feet at the center and western bank. Earth removed from this area shall be
used for fill in the areas indicated on the drawings. Remove all trees, roots,
organic matter and other unsuitable materials from the fill material and legally
dispose of all such unsuitable material off the site.
32. BACKFILL AND COMPACTION AT EXCAVATIONS: After the existing rubble fill has been
removed in any single area or excavation, spread structural backfill in the excava-
tion bottom. Lift thickness shall not exceed 6 inches loose thickness. Thoroughly
compact each lift by overlapping tracts in perpendicular directions with a dozer.
Place backfill in this manner until existing grades are achieved.

33. FILL AND COMPACTION: Place fill in all areas, except as noted above, in lifts not
exceeding 12 inches loose thickness and compacted until densities equivalent to
at least 95 percent of the modified Proctor Maximum Dry Density (ASTM D-1557) are
obtained beneath the Fort area, earth dam, and other areas of future construction
as noted on the drawings. In order to achieve this compaction, use a moderate
weight vibratory drum roller with a static weight of a least 2 tons and a drum
diameter of at least 3 feet. Place fill outisde the areas indicated for future
Fort construction in lifts not exceeding 6 inches loose thickness and track well
with a dozer. Backfill below the existing grade at the proposed Fort site, and
the required fill outside the future Fort and Village areas shall be thoroughly
tracked with overlapping passes with a dozer until densities equivalent to at
least 90% of the modified Proctor Maximum Dry Density (ASTM D-1557) are obtained.
34. FILL MATERIAL: All fill or backfill material shall be non-plastic, inorganic,
granular material (relatively clean sand) containing less than 7% material pass-
ing the No. 200 sieve. Final 12 inches of fill shall be local topsoil free from

35. TESTING: Contractor shall retain and pay for the services of a qualified testing

lift of fill for areas required to be compacted to 95% density. The testing
agency shall furnish written reports to the Architect and the Owner.
36. FINISH GRADES: Fill areas shall meet adjacent grades and shall be slightly
crowned at the center or constructed to grades as indicated with uniform slopes
and no low spots or areas. Grade open area east of the Lagoon to a smooth uniform
grade shaped to drain into the holding basin along the south side of the open area.

be pressure treated in accordance with Standard Specifications of The American
Wood Preserver's Association and/or Federal Specification TT-W-571. Timbers to be

(b) All poles to be 30-ft. Class I to be cut in half and placed with alternate
top and bottom halves. Poles to be creosote treated per above specifications to
a retention of 12-lbs./cu. ft.
(c) All spikes, lag bolts and washers to be hot dipped galvanized. Pre-drill
holes as required to prevent splitting.
