Inquiry #2: Regarding CIPP Testing: Is testing required on every Installation per 15-6.11A(3)? Including Infrared, Flex Mod/Flex Strength, Core Samples.

Section 15-6.11A(4) discusses sampling 1 in 5 Liners. If Contractor is to use same Resin and Liner Thickness, this seems more appropriate.

Response #2:If liners are of the same resin and liner thickness then Section 15-6.11A (4) would apply. Unless, problems should arise during installation.

Inquiry #3: Specification section 15-6.11B(1) General on page 12 states that at all locations, the minimum wall thickness for the CIPP is 0.7 inch. This equates to 17.8mm, which is extremely thick and difficult to install in 24" diameter pipe, and is unsupported by the CIPP thickness calculations required under specification section 15-6.11A(3).8. Please either eliminate this minimum thickness requirement or revise it to a more reasonable thickness for 24" diameter pipe.
