1. Woodchip layer. Napp-Grecco Co. to place a four-inch layer of woodchips, as shown on Detail 4 (Appendix B) and Drawings 5A-C, and as reviewed in the field by Andropogon. If quanitites of woodchips stockpiled on-site are insufficient, Contractor shall provide additional woodchips or sand as needed. If feasible, woodchips may be reused from section to section. Woodchip layer will be placed on a plastic or geo-textile mat, such as Stuart Rock Stop, as manufactured by Stuart Steel Protection Corp., South Bound Brook, New Jersey, 08880 (phone: 201-469-5544), or approved equal, to allow for easy removal by machine. 2. Sand layer. Contractor to use sand, minimum four-inch thickness, to level proposed staging area as needed, as shown on Drawing 5B, and as reviewed in the field by Andropogon. 3. Construction Access & Start Areas. Construction access will be from both deSignated site entrances (off Woodland Avenue and Spring Valley Road) so that vehicular crossings can be minimized within the construction zone. Pipeline construction shall start in middle of the site and work out to the two ends, as noted on Drawings 3A-C. The goal is to complete pipeline construction and habitat restoration work for the stream crossings, the Texas and Eastern RO.W. area, and the oak-beech forest during anticipated warm, dry weather. 4. Ground-layer mats. Contractor shall remove ground-layer mats in forest or wet-meadow areas from deSignated sections of the construction zone, primari ly the trench area as shown on Detai 1 4 (Appendix B). This operation is to be done each morning before a new section of trench is opened. The ground-layer mats should be replanted on properly prepared areas of trench at the end of each day. While some loss is inevitable, it is estimated that no more than 20% of the mats will be unusable. Where mats are badly broken, the upper layers of the forest soil should be spread over the subsoil surface and tamped lightly. In the event that the survival of vegetation of either broken or whole mats is deemed inadequate for erosion control by representatives of Andropogon, Algonquin, Morris County Soil Conservation Service and Morris County Parks Commission, the Contractor will seed any deSignated areas with annual rye. The seeding rate will be determined in the field based on extent of unstabilized area and local conditions. The seeded areas will then be covered with Erosion Control Blanket S75, 100% Straw blanket, available from North American Green, Inc., 14649 Highway 41 North, Evansville, Indiana 47711 (phone 812-867-7266).
