2019 Advocacy Well Underway With another winter (hopefully) in the rearview mirror, I know that UCANE members are looking forward to a busy, safe, and productive construction season. While we are gearing up, UCANE has already been extremely active protecting and advocating for member companies and our industry.

O

ne of UCANE’s main priorities continues to be to advocate for additional funds for water infrastructure and underground utility projects. At the state level, the MassDEP recently released their Intended Use Plans (IUP) for 2019. These are the water infrastructure projects approved through the State Revolving Loan Fund (SRF) program, which is the main source of funding for our projects. The news was good, as $647 million was approved, which is an increase of $37 million over 2018, and 66 new projects were approved in addition to funding for ongoing projects. In this month’s magazine you will find the full list of these projects, as well as the 2019 capital programs for both the MWRA and Boston Water & Sewer Commission beginning on page 27. We were fortunate enough to have MassDEP Deputy Commissioner Stephanie Cooper join MWRA Executive Director Fred Laskey and BWSC Chief Engineer John Sullivan at our 8th Annual Trade Show and Forecast Dinner to present these lists and programs. This is also the time of year when the Massachusetts Legislature will be considering the state budget for the upcoming fiscal year, and UCANE has been busy meeting with legislators from across the state to discuss our priorities and concerns. At the Federal level, I recently traveled to Washington, D.C. with UCANE staff members Jeff Mahoney and Mike Lenihan to meet with our Congressional delegation and to lobby for additional funds for water infrastructure projects. It was encouraging that all of our Massachusetts Congressmen are in favor of increased spending for water infrastructure and are hopeful that it will be included as part of a larger infrastructure bill that is expected to be considered this year.

APRIL, 2019

While critically important, UCANE’s work is much more than just lobbying for funds for public infrastructure projects. There were over 6,000 bills filed in the State Legislature that will be considered in the 20192020 session. Together with our contract lobbyist, Lynch Associates, we have been combing through all of these proposals to find the ones that could have an impact on our companies and our industry. We identify and track these bills, and give written and oral testimony either supporting or opposing these measures. We also have filed our own legislation, with bills to provide a dedicated revenue stream for water infrastructure, to update the Dig Safe law, increase the lookback time for DCAMM pre-qualification, and to provide consistency among all awarding authorities for how police details are handled as a bid item. We are strongly supporting the passage of all these measures.

So as you can see, we have a lot on our plate in the coming months, and I am asking for your help. If you receive an “Action Alert” email from UCANE regarding a piece of legislation, I hope that you will take the time to contact your legislators and speak to them about the matter. If you have any suggestions for additional legislation, or want to stay up to date on what we are working on, please feel free to contact the UCANE office and attend one of our monthly Government Relations Meetings typically held on the first Wednesday evening of each month. Our Association is strong because our members are engaged, informed, and involved. So let’s keep it going in 2019. Your voice truly makes a difference! n

Department of Family and Medical Leave Releases Updated Proposed Regulations

T

he Massachusetts Department of Family and Medical Leave (“the Department”) released a set of proposed regulations implementing the new family and medical leave program in late March. The regulations, which are built from recommendations received after the Department released an initial draft of proposed regulations, govern different facets of the new government benefit program. Public hearings on the regulations will occur in May. In weighing in on the proposed regulations with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development, UCANE highlighted five areas of concern related to the provision of benefits, identifying fraud, defining employment opportunities, and the program’s overall consistency with federal law. Overall, UCANE’s testimony stated that: “Massachusetts’ Family and Medical Leave Law and the regulations implementing this groundbreaking law will impact almost every employment relationship. UCANE appreciates the work that your agency has put into these proposed regulations to ensure that the roll-out of this program occurs as smoothly

as possible.” With that in mind, the new Family and Medical Leave Law presents a myriad of challenges to contractors – not the least of which are many unknown variables. In the extremely competitive construction industry in Massachusetts, these unknown or ambiguous variables may mean the difference between a company being profitable or not. For employers, the new law may require a variety of remitting contributions for both W2 employees (fulltime, part-time, seasonal) and 1099-MISC contractors. Beginning in July 2019, employers must report wages paid, payment for contract services rendered, and other information about their workforce. Employers must also determine contribution amounts for their workforce and for any contribution due from the employer, where applicable. While employers’ private benefit plans may exempt them from the state program, any private program must provide the same or better benefits. The timeline for the implementation of the new law is as follows:

Baker-Polito Administration Funds $2 Million to Protect Water Quality in Merrimack River

I

n a press release issued by the Governor’s Office at the end of March, the Baker-Polito Administration announced it has provided $2 million in capital funding to the Greater Lawrence Sanitary District (“GLSD”) to provide backup power for their Riverside Pump Station. This investment will allow GLSD to purchase and install backup power generators to prevent spills into the Merrimack River during cases of long-term power outages. Established by law in 1968, the Greater Lawrence Sanitary District is responsible for sewage collection, treatment, and disposal for the City of Lawrence, and the Towns of Methuen, Andover, and North Andover. GLSD’s Riverside Pump Station accepts contaminated water flows from 99 percent of the service area and diverts them to the facility’s wastewater treatment plant where the water is properly treated and discharged into the Merrimack River. In 2017, GLSD experienced power failures affecting both the main plant and the Riverside Pump Station and as a result were unable to accept,

APRIL, 2019

treat, and discharge water. Due to the large volume of water caused by a storm, wastewater levels exceeded the capacity of the combined sewer overflow system and spilled, untreated sewage into the Merrimack River. In response to these events, MassDEP has entered into an administrative consent order with GLSD requiring them to submit a schedule to provide alternative on-site power facilities to provide for sustained operation of the facility at full capacity. The district will use this $2 million to invest in backup power generators to prevent these types of events from happening. This funding announcement builds on the BakerPolito Administration’s focus on the Commonwealth’s water bodies, including awarding almost $100 million in loans through the State Revolving Loan Fund (SRF) for sewage overflow mitigation projects, and awarding $4.5 million in capital funding to the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission to prevent sewage overflows along the Connecticut River. continued on page 11

Senator Diana DiZoglio (D- Methuen)

Growing up in Methuen, Senator DiZoglio was educated in public schools and after graduating from Middlesex Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Psychology, she attended Wellesley College, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Spanish. Prior to being elected to the House of Representatives in 2012, the Senator spent time as both chief of staff to the president of the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts and then as a legislative aide on Beacon Hill, an experience which greatly informed the policies she would eventually pursue in elected office. Growing up in a blue collar region of Massachusetts, surrounded by construction workers, laborers, police officers, teachers, and firefighters, the value of a hard day’s work was impressed upon her at an early age. So she has dedicated her career in public service to advancing the interests of working people and looking for ways to find common ground between labor and business to build a better, stronger Commonwealth.

Q:

Please give your thoughts on how Massachusetts can best continue to provide local aid to cities and towns to help support basic municipal services, specifically water infrastructure.

A:

Right now, we’re seeing a lot of communities struggle to provide better municipal services without being forced to significantly raise local taxes, which can be devastating for property owners and residents on fixed incomes. The Commonwealth has over 125,000 miles of sewer pipes and over 100 municipal wastewater treatment plants. Maintaining and improving these essential water services is a particularly expensive endeavor, but the state has succeeded in passing legislation in recent years to help alleviate this cost. For instance, a law passed in 2014 increased the amount that the state can appropriate to the State Revolving Loan Fund Program, which specifically allows cities and towns to borrow money for improving drinking water, wastewater and stormwater facilities. This law creates new opportunities for communities to receive loans through the revolving fund for little or no interest, and allows the state to provide a dollar-for-dollar match for connection costs for regional drinking water or wastewater systems like the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority. With the signing of this law, legislators acknowledged there is more work to be done and subsequently created a Water InfraAPRIL, 2019

structure Advisory Board to advise the legislature of future water infrastructure concerns in the Commonwealth. These are good first steps, but we need to continue to be vigilant in the coming years to make concerted efforts to better manage our drinking water and wastewater systems while also looking to incentivize communities to make investments in these systems as well.

Q:

The Massachusetts Water Infrastructure Finance Commission found that there is a $20 billion gap in water and sewer infrastructure funding over the next 20 years in the Commonwealth. Can you discuss some of the water and sewer infrastructure concerns your district has been addressing?

A:

Closing that gap as a state will require buy-in from communities across Massachusetts, and possibly even federal assistance to work towards permanent solutions.

In the Merrimack Valley, a post-industrial region with gateway cities on its western end and communities heavily reliant on summer tourism on its eastern end, the issues surrounding our aging water infrastructure are of critical importance. The communities I represent are very aware of this funding gap and have demonstrated a particular concern about issues like Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) and other pollutants in the river. continued on page 19

Interview continued from page 17

To address these issues and improve our water and sewer infrastructure, in this session I have filed legislation to assemble a commission to assess the health of the Merrimack River. The Army Corps of Engineers recently completed a comprehensive study on the Merrimack River, so there is substantial data to unify the various stakeholders that will be involved in this commission. After agreeing on the basic set of facts and analyzing the relevant data, this commission will hire consultants to advise on next steps and move forward to develop a meaningful plan to clean and maintain the river for years to come.

agencies on ways to help fund improvements to the aging sewer infrastructure in cities like Haverhill and Methuen. Completing large-scale replacements of our sewer and water systems will cost extraordinary amounts of money and will require federal assistance.

Q:

The construction industry continues to deal with workforce development issues as it searches for the next generation of workers. Can you discuss your thoughts relative to the importance of making sure that the construction industry and trades are able to fill these much needed jobs in the coming years?

A:

The commission will include representatives from sewage management, environmentalists, state officials, and members appointed by local elected officials to share information, hire consultants, review the health of the river, and make recommendations to the legislature on best steps to take to keep the river healthy.

In an area of the country where there is so much development underway — and an area where there is growing income inequality — we have to emphasize the ways in which a job in the building trades can offer an avenue to financial stability.

This bill addresses the issue comprehensively and effectively in order to discover the best long-term solutions. In terms of immediate, temporary improvements, I have also filed a bill around updating and modernizing pre-notification methods for potential water pollution in the Merrimack River.

Trade schools and vocational programs are the keys to growing our workforce here in Massachusetts and we have seen increased investment in them statewide. The Merrimack Valley, for instance, is already home to several thriving vocational schools like the Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School.

Lastly, an essential step in the process of improving our water infrastructure requires meeting with the relevant federal

fields whose work we benefit from every day and often take for granted. By opening the doors of our trade schools and community colleges for adult night programs, we can get even more people who may be looking for secure, betterpaying jobs with the training they need to become certified in these fields. State-funded labor and workforce development programs like the Workforce Solutions Group are seeing increased enrollment around Massachusetts.

A:

Some of the big issues I’m looking to address during this session have to do with improving government transparency and increasing accountability for public utilities to prevent and combat the fallout of disasters like the gas explosions in the Merrimack Valley last fall. Among these bills is a piece of legislation that would increase the reporting requirements to local fire and police for gas companies when they first learn of gas leaks.

The bottom line is that we do a great disservice to so many young people in this country if we denigrate the value of manual labor. We must continue our efforts to promote policies that not only assist in providing opportunities in this area but also help to educate our communities on the immense value of this work. This is critical to the future of construction.

Another bill would create a disaster relief fund to mitigate any significant rate increases following a declared emergency, accident, insolvency, bankruptcy, or other event involving a utility company, while a third bill would require the disclosure of total compensation packages for the CEOs of any public utility company operating in Massachusetts. If the overall compensation of a utility company’s CEO is 100 times higher than the median workers salary, that company would be charged with a surtax from which funds would go toward the relief fund. The utility company would also be prohibited from increasing rates until the pay equity ratio changes and comes under 100 to 1.

What are some of your other priorities for the upcoming session?

These are important bills that, if passed, will reduce the burden placed on utility workers and ratepayers alike. n

In the private sector, non-profit organizations like SkillsUSA are also doing great work in connecting young people with potential employers looking to fill positions in technical fields, such as the construction industry.

UCANE’s March Forecast Dinner Meeting

MassDEP, MWRA, and BWSC Leaders Discuss Upcoming Capital Projects

Stephanie Cooper MassDEP Deputy Commissioner

O

Fred Laskey

MWRA Executive Director

BWSC Chief Engineer

Sponsored by Woodco Machinery, Inc.

ver the years, UCANE’s Forecast Dinner Meeting and Trade Show has proven to be one of the most well attended meetings of the year, in large part because of our partnership and working relationship with government agency leaders and public works officials. So it was no surprise that close to 400 members and guests filled The Sheraton Four Points Hotel in Norwood for this year’s event. The keynote presenters for the evening were MassDEP Deputy Commissioner Stephanie Cooper, Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) Executive Director Fred Laskey, and Boston Water & Sewer Commission (BWSC) Chief Engineer John Sullivan. Each of these leaders provided an overview of the projects that will be coming out to bid this year, as well as additional projects in future years. UCANE President Richard Pacella, Jr. opened the meeting by welcoming our attendees and reminding them of the importance of this meeting and our continued relationship with the officials in the room. Executive Director Anne Klayman then introduced the UCANE Board of Directors and also introduced and welcomed several new members including “@-Leisure” Contractor Licensing, LLC of Plymouth, Cape Cod Winwater of Hyannis, Centinel Financial Group, LLC of Needham, inTerra Innovation, Inc, of North Reading, Hydrograss Technology, an RB Arello Company of 22

John Sullivan, P.E.

North Oxford, MJ-Hammer of Boston, NSI Contracting LLC of West Bridgewater, Mabbett & Associates, Inc. of Bedford, and Skanska USA Civil of Waltham. The prospective members in attendance were also introduced and welcomed. UCANE Assistant Executive Director Jeff Mahoney then introduced the first keynote speaker of the evening, MassDEP Deputy Commissioner Stephanie Cooper, who spoke on several initiatives that will have an effect on the water infrastructure industry. She spoke about climate adaptation and the need to fund resiliency projects, which was a theme that was echoed by all of our speakers. She also spoke about the MassDEP Final 2019 Clean Water and Drinking Water Intended Use Plans (IUP), which had recently been released. The list shows an increase in spending for 2019 with 64 projects totaling over $499 million in projects authorized through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF), and 27 projects totaling $147 million in projects authorized through the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF). These projects will be put out to bid in all areas of the state, and Stephanie highlighted several jobs that will be coming out to bid on Cape Cod and in Western Mass. The entire 2019 IUP list can be found starting on page 27 and at www.ucane.com. MWRA Executive Director Fred Laskey then began his remarks by highlighting several recent projects that

APRIL 2019


were completed by UCANE members. He then updated attendees about the Authority’s Capital Program and how the MWRA has provided its member communities nearly $800 million in grants and interest-free loans for local infrastructure repair and rehabilitation projects. Fred also provided an update on the Metropolitan Tunnel Redundancy Program and outlined several projects that have recently gone out to bid, or will be going out to bid, as a result of this program. Highlights from Mr. Laskey’s presentation can be found starting on page 39. Chief Engineer John Sullivan then gave an overview of the ongoing BWSC projects including water main replacement, sewer, and stormwater. The water main program alone will be $45.5 million in 2019. He also touched upon the massive amount of development happening in the City of Boston, and the near and future challenges faced by BWSC. BWSC’s Capital Improvement Plan Executive Summary and Upcoming Projects for the years 2019-2021 can be found starting on page 51. All of the speakers thanked UCANE and our membership for their continued work and advocacy on behalf of the water infrastructure industry. More work will be put out to bid in the coming years, but additional monies need to be appropriated to address the backlog of projects and the $18–$21 billion water infrastructure funding deficit Massachusetts faces over the next 15 years. continued on page 25

Each year our Forecast Meeting serves as the “unofficial kickoff” to the construction season. UCANE would like to thank Stephanie Cooper, Fred Laskey, and John Sullivan for their continued support of our Association and for once again taking the time out their busy schedules to attend.

We would also like to thank our Construction Outlook advertisers who participated in our 8th Annual Trade Show prior to our Dinner Meeting. The feedback from the vendors has been tremendous, and we look forward to a record number of companies participating again next year! (See article on page 66.) n

$147 Million Offered for Drinking Water SRF in 2019

he Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) is pleased to present the CY2019 Intended Use Plan (IUP), which lists the proposed projects, borrowers, and amounts that will be financed through the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loan program. The DWSRF is a joint federal-state financing program that provides subsidized interest rate loans to protect public health by improving water supply, infrastructure systems, and protecting drinking water in the Commonwealth.

As noted in Table 1, Massachusetts proposes to offer $147 million to finance drinking water projects across the Commonwealth. Approximately $138 million will fund 20 new construction projects. An additional $6 million will be allocated towards funding five previously approved multi-year projects and $55,000 is allocated towards the Planning Project submitted. An additional $3 million will fund an emergency setaside account.

he Boston Water and Sewer Commission (“the Commission” or “BWSC”) is a body politic and corporate and political subdivision of the Commonwealth created by Chapter 436 of the Acts of 1977 (“Enabling Act”). The Enabling Act abolished the water and sewer divisions within the City of Boston Public Works Department and transferred the ownership, operation and control of the water, sewer and storm drain systems to the Commission. As a public instrumentality, the Commission performs an essential public function in providing water and sewer services to the residents of the City of Boston. The Act authorizes the Commission to construct and make improvements to the water and sewer systems, establish and collect rates and charges for its services and finance its operations and improvements through revenue collections and the sale of bonds and notes payable solely from the Commission’s revenues. The Act further provides that any revenue surpluses earned by the Commission in any Fiscal Year shall be credited to the next year’s rates or returned to the City of Boston. Since its inception, the Commission has generated a surplus in each year of its operations and has credited the surplus to the reduction of the next year’s rates. The Enabling Act and the Commission’s General Revenue Bond Resolution, adopted December 6, 1984 (“the Resolution”) require the Commission, on an annual basis, to develop a three-year Capital Improvement Program (“CIP”). Information generated by the Commission’s ongoing monitoring programs for the Systems and from various engineering data files, together with information concerning the development needs of the City, is used to compile a list of pipes, conduits, transmission mains and other System components to be either renewed, replaced, relocated or added to the Systems each year. The CIP outlines the schedule and implementation of the capital projects necessary to maintain and improve the water and sewer systems for the ensuing three-year period. The Commission in compliance with the requirements of the Enabling Act and the Resolution, project costs of the Commission’s Capital Improvement Program from Fiscal Years 2019 through 2021 total approximately, $220.3 million. Since the Commission’s inception in 1977, the Commission has set forth its Capital Improvement Plan to provide for long-term capital improvements to its water dis-

tribution and sewer collection systems, governed by a core commitment to prudent fiscal management. Comprehensive and well planned water distribution system maintenance and planning has sustained superior water service for our customers and resulted in a low incidence of system failures. The Commission has also led the industry in implementing effective water conservation measures, including dedication to deploying the most efficient technologies and practices enabling the Commission to maximize cost savings. The Commission utilizes effective conservation measures through continued efforts to eliminate leaks across the system through advanced leak detection technology and proactive maintenance of the system’s water mains.

Discussion of Management Objectives and Accomplishments The Commission was created to maintain and improve the long-term quality and reliability of water and sewer services for all users in the City and to assure adequate funding for operation and maintenance of the systems. For the purposes of this document, “Systems” include the water distribution system (including potable water and fire suppression facilities) and sewer system (including separate sanitary sewers, separate storm water drains and combined sewers) and the related appurtenances and fixtures. The Commission is committed to four primary goals: • To maintain and improve the water distribution and wastewater collection systems. The Commission is comcontinued on page 52

mitted to various improvements to the Water Distribution and Sewer Systems, including following an aggressive renewal and replacement program, reducing unaccounted for water, encouraging conservation and improving the environment. The Commission is also committed to meeting and exceeding the requirements of all federal and state water and wastewater laws, regulations and technical standards. • To establish and administer a billing and collections system that is fair and efficient. The Commission has worked to establish a rate structure that fully and fairly reflects its costs, properly distributes the financial obligation concerning its customer base and encourages water conservation. The metering, billing and collection process is a central focus of the Commission’s full management team and the Commission is committed to maintaining its strong record in that area. • To maintain a strong financial structure. The Commission has consistently employed conservative financial projections and budgeting assumptions, maintains adequate reserves and struck a reasonable balance between debt funding and rate funding of capital expenses.

An ARELLO COMPANY

• To sustain the effectiveness of investments/compliance of regulations. The Commission is committed to complying with all its regulatory obligations under federal and state laws, including the Safe Drinking Water Act (“SDWA”) and Clean Water Act (“CWA”) with its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (“NPDES”) permitting obligations for both its stormwater systems and combined sewer systems. Compliance obligations also extend to meeting and exceeding the goals and requirements of the Boston Harbor Decree and the Consent Decree executed in 2012 with the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) related to stormwater discharges. In planning its CIP, the Commission balances the recognized need for ongoing renewal and replacement and preservation of its Systems with the desirability of specific improvements to accommodate development or redevelopment plans for the City. Wherever feasible, capital improvements are scheduled in cooperation with the street rebuilding and reconstruction activities of the City’s Department of Public Works, the Boston Planning and Development Agency and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Highway Department. continued on page 53

Objectives The overall objectives of the Commission 20192021 CIP are to ensure the delivery of high quality potable water for consumption and fire protection, as well as the efficient collection of sewage for transport and delivery to a treatment facility or for approved discharge. In addition, the CIP includes projects to improve overall efficiency of the Commission and to enhance the Commission’s ability to provide services to its customers. The Stormwater category was created in 2017 that focuses on Stormwater management. The primary purpose of the Stormwater Category in the 2019-2021 Capital Improvement Program is to engage in participation in the Boston Harbor pollution abatement projects and implement green infrastructure to improve the water quality of discharges to the local receiving waters. The goal is also to study existing conditions and make recommendations for placement of new best management practices designed to promote improved water quality, ensure compliance with state and fed-

eral regulations, minimize flooding and strategically manage Stormwater throughout the City of Boston. CIP expenditures are divided into four categories: Water Distribution System projects, Sewer System projects, Support projects and Stormwater projects. Water Distribution System projects account for $100.6 million, or 45.7% of the 2019-2021 CIP. Sewer System projects comprise $93.7 million, or 42.5%, Support projects total $19.0 million, or 8.6% of the expenditures outlined in the program, and Stormwater projects account for $7.0 million, or 3.2% of the 2019-2021 CIP. Total capital expenditures of $85.9 million are outlined for 2019. Water Distribution projects comprise $41.4 million or 48.2%, Sewer System projects account for $34.1 million or 39.7%, Support projects account for $7.5 million, or 8.7% of the 2019 amount. Stormwater projects totaling $2.9 million consist of the remaining 3.4% of the 2019 amount. Tables 1 and 2 on the following page represent the cash flow expenditures and funding sources for the Commission’s 2019-2021 CIP. continued on page 54

Patrick W. Saltmarsh Corporate Safety Director J. Derenzo Companies

If You See Something …Say Something “Good communication is the bridge between confusion and clarity” ~ Nat Turner Email and texting has revolutionized and forever changed the way we communicate with each other. It is undeniably quick and efficient, and there is no question that many employees prefer to text or email one another rather than pick up the phone. Emailing colleagues and associates in other companies has become a modern day tool for communicating efficiently, however the message can often times be misunderstood. This has recently become a chief complaint of mine when working with and communicating with other Safety Managers.

N

ow you can call me old fashioned, but when it comes to communicating safety issues and concerns, nothing can ever replace a good old fashioned, face to face conversation or telephone call. Safety managers hiding behind their computer or phone screen, not only lacks courage and professionalism, but it can also cause dissension among colleagues and company personnel. The lack of consideration combined with possible misinterpretation can risk permanent damage to relationships and unravel any progress made by a poorly worded message or an all-inclusive “cc” distribution list on your email. Many of us have heard the phrase, “if you see something, say something.” This motto holds true in construction and should be the primary function of any safety manager that steps foot onto a construction site. I feel that too much of a good thing is a bad thing, and the overuse of email or text messaging is getting in the way of addressing the problems when you see them and discussing those concerns with the involved employees. No lessons APRIL, 2019

can be learned if you simply return to your office or car and type up a site inspection, or list your concerns in the body of an email and send it to a long list of recipients. There isn’t a foremen, superintendent, or fellow safety manager that will appreciate receiving an email pointing out issues that could have simply and easily been addressed. Especially if a conversation with the employee would have cured the problem. As painful as the interaction may be for some, you must find your voice and push through the discomfort of having that awkward conversation. The tendency to avoid confrontation is based in fear that once you have presented an issue to the employee, he or she will simply deny wrong doing, argue with you, or make excuses. If you haven’t developed the communication skills to properly engage in a conversation like this, both parties will end up walking away frustrated and you will have lost a golden opportunity to explain the safety concern and modify the work practice of your fellow employee. continued on page 60

Wouldn’t it be nice if each day everything went smoothly, with everyone working in perfect unison. But we know that is never the case. Work can get messy. Being a great company, or team, takes effort. And often, it requires a willingness to push through awkward moments and take on uncomfortable situations. In order to work safer today, than we did yesterday, don’t distance yourself from the job site, show up and be present. Most importantly, “if you see something, SAY SOMETHING.” n

Cape and Islands Legislators Seek to Tweak Water Protection Fund HYANNIS — The new tax that is the source of funding for the Cape Cod and Islands Water Protection Fund won’t be levied until summer, but the Cape and Islands legislative delegation has already requested technical corrections and clarifications to the law establishing it.

A

letter, signed by all eight members of the delegation, was sent Tuesday (March 19) to state Sen. Michael Rodrigues, D-Westport, and Rep. Aaron Michlewitz, D-Boston, chairmen of their respective committees on ways and means. In the letter, the lawmakers request that the corrective language related to the fund be included in the state’s final Fiscal Year 2019 Supplemental Budget bill. The language had already been included in the Senate version of the bill. “Since the law was enacted in July of 2018, towns in Barnstable, Dukes, and Nantucket Counties have asked for changes to ensure that there are unambiguous procedures for implementation of the law,” according to the letter. “In addition, the Clean Water Trust and the Management Board for the fund have requested clarification with regard to duties and authority of the Management Board. Perhaps most importantly, nearly all stakeholders have emphasized that there must be data collection and unbiased oversight to ensure that funds are distributed equitably to member towns.” The fund is financed by a 2.75 percent tax, established as part of state’s new short-term rental tax, which will be collected in Cape towns to help offset the multibillion dollar costs of the region’s wastewater cleanup efforts. The fund’s management board is composed of one appointed member per town, who

APRIL, 2019 2016 SEPTEMBER,

must be a selectman, town councilor, town manager or administrator or other municipally employed professional staff. One change proposed by the delegation would require the state Department of Revenue to provide the management board with a report detailing the amount of tax collected from each town, and mandate it to maintain financial records and produce an annual report detailing revenue, expenses and projects to be funded. An annual independent audit of financial records, along with a report to certain members of the Legislature, would also be required. Other recommended changes apply only to Nantucket and the six towns on Martha’s Vineyard if they choose to opt in to the fund. It would allow participation in the fund through a board of selectmen vote, and enable island towns to submit a “suitable equivalent” wastewater management plan to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection for approval. Nantucket and the Vineyard, unlike the 15 towns on Cape Cod, are not subject to a federally mandated Section 208 water quality management plan. Leaders of the Cape’s largest town have already expressed concerns it may not get equitable distribution — “a dollar in for a dollar out” — from the new Cape Cod and Islands Water Protection Fund. continued on page 63

“We won’t have good data on what’s coming in until after 2020,” he said. “We do not yet know from which towns money will be generated.” Cyr contends that some smaller towns, where vacation rentals command higher rates, may actually contribute more to the fund than some may think. He also maintains the current fund structure is wellsuited for regional, watershed-based challenges and will benefit those towns that are ready to implement solutions sooner than other towns. “A lot of thought has gone into the structure of this fund, including equitable distribution,” said Cyr. “The intention of this fund is to be a win-win for every town that is a member. If we have a water quality problem anywhere in the region, it will have an effect everywhere in the region. Tourists don’t distinguish between town boundaries, they think of ‘the Cape.’” Written by Geoff Spillane. Reprinted from Cape Cod Times. continued on page 65

“Barnstable wants Barnstable’s money,” said Town Council President James Crocker. “Until we have enough we don’t have enough. We are committed to put our money to work here.” In a unanimous voice vote earlier this month, the council supported working toward modifications to ensure the town receives a fair and equitable share of the fund. Potential changes suggested include instituting a weighted vote per town on the management board, regrouping as a smaller coalition of towns with shared watersheds or requiring a supermajority vote if amounts awarded exceed the amount contributed by a community. The council formally appointed Town Manager Mark Ells as its representative to the fund’s management board at its meeting Thursday (March 21) night. In January, the chairwoman of Provincetown’s Select Board had also voiced concerns that her town would not get its fair share of the water protection fund and raised the possibility of opting out; other Provincetown officials appeared to have little apMBO Precast Inc. petite for the move. 4 Marion Drive • Carver, MA 02330 “I think the reporting requireT: 508-866-6900 • F: 508-866-5252 ments we are adding into the law www.MBOPrecast.com based on feedback from towns, including Barnstable, will strengthen accountability and transparency to Stone Strong Retaining Wall Systems ensure equitable distribution of reManholes / Catch Basins / Custom Structures sources from this fund,” said state Septic Tanks / Leaching Products Sen.

Cost Estimates Surge for Harwich Wastewater Management Plan HARWICH – Cost estimates are in for Harwich’s comprehensive wastewater management plan, and figures have shifted sharply upward.

C

onsultants with CDM Smith informed selectmen last month that the town can expect to pay $300 million if they opt for their own system. Also on the table, is a proposal for a joint system with Dennis and Yarmouth which experts say would run roughly $260 million. Either plan is well in excess of the $240 million that town officials had been expecting. “These are 2022 cost numbers,” consultant David Young told the board, “The $240 million was based on 2016. We’re using three percent inflation, that’s how your $240 million went to $300 million.” Young went on to say that Harwich could see substantial savings through sharing infrastructure components with Dennis and Yarmouth and illuminating the need for their own water treatment facility. According to CDM Smith, they are still looking at additional cost savings measures including working

with the commonwealth’s Department Of Transportation to coordinate roadway projects. Any final decision on a wastewater plan would need approval from town meeting voters. Reprinted from capecod.com n

UCANE’s 8th Annual Trade Show

CANE’s 8th Annual Trade Show met all expectations with almost 400 members and guests in attendance, and close to 40 participants in this year’s Trade Show. And with 135 contractors in attendance, it was obviously a great networking opportunity for our members. Once again, this event was held at the Sheraton Four Points Hotel in Norwood, MA, prior to our March Forecast Dinner Meeting, with the primary goal of supporting our members who advertise in Construction Outlook magazine. To our exhibitors, this is a great opportunity to meet with key decision makers in the underground construction industry, and to showcase their products and services prior to the evening’s presentations. This format has proven to be very successful for the exhibitors, who are provided with a complimentary booth, as our way of thanking them for supporting UCANE by advertising in our magazine. The feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive. Contractors are drawn to this Dinner Meeting to hear agency heads from the MassDEP, MWRA, and BWSC present their forecasts for water and sewer projects for the upcoming construction season and beyond; and to support our Associate Members, who generously support UCANE in so many ways, in addition to advertising in our magazine.

66

Those who attended our Trade Show received promotional items from our vendors, and some, if they were lucky, received one of the great prizes donated by our members. The prizes included an iPad Mini from Scituate Concrete Products Corp.; 4 Red Sox Tickets from U.S. Pipe; 3-$100 American Express Gift Cards from Core & Main; 4 Bruins Tickets from Concrete Systems, Inc.; 2-$100 Capital Grille Gift Cards and 2 Pair of Red Sox tickets from Shea Concrete Products, Inc.; 2 Red Sox Tickets from Eastern States Insurance Agency, Inc.; 2 Celtics Tickets in the Board Room from W. L. French Excavating Corp.; 2 Red Sox Tickets from Taylor Oil Company; as well as a Basket of 10 fine wines, Dinner for 2 at Ocean Prime Restaurant, a Pair of Bose Audio Sunglasses, a YETI Tundra 35 Cooler, and a Toshiba 50-inch Class LED-2160p Smart TV all donated by Volvo Construction Equipment and Woodco Machinery, Inc. UCANE’s Trade Show is just another way we thank our Construction Outlook advertisers for their support throughout the year. They make it possible for us to continue to publish our nationally recognized magazine, and to get our industry’s message about the need for clean drinking water and pollution control projects out to cities and towns, DPW directors, state agency heads, legislators, and many companies and groups in the water protection, management, and environmental communities. Construction Outlook magazine is a vehicle for com-

panies to create name recognition and have their latest products and services seen by many company and municipal decision makers. In addition, our advertisers are featured on a rotating basis in our monthly e-newsletter, and on our website at no additional cost to them. It’s obvious by their continued support that the most successful companies in our industry understand that our magazine helps to grow and expand their businesses.

Younger single people also may be likely to itemize because they have only a $12,000 hurdle to clear ($12,200 in 2019), which would mean $2,000 ($2,200 in 2019) in other deductions if they face the $10,000 cap on their SALT deductions.

Planning Points Under the TCJA, married couples may find it difficult to itemize deductions. As mentioned in the March 2019 Financial Management article, people older than 70½ might want to tap their IRAs for qualified charitable distributions because other contributions deliver no tax benefit for those who take the standard deduction. Younger people may want to front load years of charitable contributions into a donor advised fund, if that results in itemizing for the contribution year. Married couples with children or other loved ones who file a single tax return may want to make family gifts instead of charitable gifts; in 2019, each person can give up to $15,000 per recipient with no gift tax consequences. The recipient may be able to make the desired donation, itemize deductions, and keep a tax benefit in the family. As for single taxpayers, the key point is to keep itemized deductions in their tax planning. Even with the $10,000 SALT cap, the standard deduction might not be the best option. Maintain careful records of all medical or dental expenses, which might be deductible, and use savvy tactics for charitable giving, such as donating appreciated securities instead of cash. Itemized deductions are still an option, even if only largely for single filers. continued on page 76

Homeowner’s Insurance Protects a Prime Asset

rom coast to coast, hurricanes and wildfires and other natural disasters have created headlines while destroying homes. Your principal residence is probably a valuable asset, so you should be confident your homeowner’s insurance can protect you against multiple perils. Chances are, your first experience with homeowner’s coverage probably coincided with your first home purchase, which you financed with a mortgage. Many lenders require such insurance, and proof of adequate coverage may be part of the closing process. Comprehensive Coverage

Regardless of whether you still have a sizable home loan, you should have a homeowner’s policy

that will cover you and your family as well as the lender. For instance, the policy should have limits that are adequate to replace or rebuild your home after a complete destruction, not just repay the outstanding mortgage loan. Damage or theft of personal possessions also should be covered. Liability insurance should protect your other assets if a visitor or worker is injured on your property. Other provisions you might look for include coverage of other buildings on your property (garage, storage shed), living expenses if damages force you to relocate, and theft of possessions. You also might need specialized coverage if you are concerned about damage from floods, sinkholes, or earthquakes.

Proving Loss of Personal Property To jog your memory of your possessions, which may be vague if your house and everything in it has been destroyed, it’s a good idea to take room-by-room photographs of your possessions and keep them in a continued on page 77

Financial Management continued from page 76 remote safe deposit box. It’s also advisable to make a specific listing of particularly valuable items, with information about purchase date and price. Your homeowner’s insurance company may have suggested forms that you can use to list personal property items before a loss happens. Such information may make negotiating a claim with the insurer quicker and easier.

Finding Good Hands To get the coverage you want, at a reasonable price, you can shop around to compare offerings from multiple insurers. If you are satisfied with your auto insurance coverage (see the January 2019 Financial Management article), look into that company’s homeowner’s policies. You also can question relatives, friends, or business associates to see if they’ve had good experiences with an insurer’s homeowner’s policy.

State Your Claim Keep in mind that homeowner’s insurance coverage is not limited to natural disasters that destroy a home. Lesser damages also may be covered to help you pay for repairs or reconstruction. For example, if you experience a leak in the upstairs shower that results in damage downstairs, you can file a claim and

see how the insurer responds. Don’t be reluctant to file small claims. They may provide some needed cash while having little or no effect on future premiums. That said, you might not want to claim a minor occurrence, so why choose a $250 or $500 deductible? A $1,000 deductible may bring down ongoing premiums dramatically. If you have a claim that runs into five figures, be prepared for some pushback from your insurer. You probably will need an estimate of the amount of money involved. The insurance company may suggest contractors to provide the estimate, but you might prefer to get one from someone else if you have a reputable worker who has completed satisfactory projects for you in the past.

Dealing with Disputes A homeowner’s insurance company probably has its own formula for estimating the cost of satisfying your claim, and its number may be much lower than one from your contractor. Getting photos and filing your claim as soon as possible may help to lessen the disagreement; and a formal explanation of the likely expenses might lead to a better settlement offer. You may wind up with a compromise that reimburses you for most, if not all, of your costs. continued on page 78

Roth Solo 401(k)s for (Very) Small Businesses

he Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017 was not officially focused on retirement planning, but it has had a major impact on the choice of retirement plans. After-tax plans, known as Roth accounts, may be more practical now. That can be especially true regarding solo 401(k)s, which are 401(k) plans that cover business owners (including sole proprietors) without employees (other than the owners and their spouses).

Under the TCJA, the income caps for married couples filing joint tax returns is twice the upper limit for single filers in all tax brackets. In most brackets, that’s a much wider gap than had been the case in the past. Example 1: Tom and Stella Smith have around $300,000 a year in taxable income after deductions.

In 2017, before passage of the TCJA, their tax bracket was 33%. If they added an extra $1 of income, they would have owed 33 cents more to the IRS. On the other hand, if Tom put $1 into a pretax retirement plan, the couple would have deferred 33 cents in income tax. In 2017, the Smiths might have expected to be in the 28% tax bracket in retirement. (That year, the 28% bracket covered taxable income ranging from $153,100 to $233,350). Deferring tax at 33% and ultimately paying tax at 28% seemed like an attractive scenario.

New Rates In 2019, federal income tax rates have been lowered and the upper limits for tax brackets have risen. Example 2: Tom and Stella expect the same $300,000 in taxable income in 2019, which puts them in a 24% tax bracket. continued on page 79

Financial Management continued from page 78 Moreover, current law calls for a return of 2017 tax rates after 2025. The thought of deferring tax at 24% in a pretax retirement plan, and eventually taking distributions in what could be a 28% tax bracket after 2025, reduces the appeal of pretax retirement plans. Not all business owners will be in situations such as those illustrated in examples 1 and 2. Nevertheless, the underlying principles apply broadly. Lower tax rates make tax-deferred retirement plans less appealing, especially given the prospect of higher tax rates prevailing in the future.

After-Tax Plans If pretax retirement plans are less attractive under the TCJA, then after-tax plans may be worth exploring. These plans are known as Roth options, because the Roth IRA was the first such plan. With Roth plans, contributions are made with aftertax dollars. In essence, you pay tax now using today’s relatively low rates. Money compounds tax-free inside the plan, and all distributions might be tax-free in the future. Typically, you must be at least age 59½ and meet a five year holding period test for all distributions to qualify for tax-free treatment.

Some popular small business retirement plans, such as SEP-IRAs, don’t offer Roth versions. Therefore, a 401(k) with a Roth option might be a good choice. As a business owner, you can choose to put contributions on the Roth side, and your employees can do the same. Self-employed individuals and business owners with no employees (other than themselves and their spouses) can have a solo 401(k) with a Roth option. Solo 401(k) plans and their Roth versions do not require nondiscrimination testing, which can be costly for business owners with regular 401(k) plans.

Copious Contributions In 2019, participants in solo 401(k) plans can contribute as much as $19,000 from their earnings, or $25,000 if they are 50 or older. In addition, employer contributions can be up to 25% of compensation, to a maximum of $56,000 in total contributions. Self-employed participants face somewhat different rules, possibly lower contribution limits, and a requirement that employer contributions go into the pretax 401(k). However, it may be possible to pay the tax on those pretax contributions at today’s tax rates and move the dollars over to the Roth version, if the paperwork allows such inplan Roth conversions.
