No information is present in the plans or specifications that detail the dimensions and or how much dirt, debris, sand, sediments are existing in the Storage Bays. With the cleaning and maintenance requirements in the specifications the contractor may be required to clean the bays multiple times.

Inquiry #4: Requesting bid postponement until after holiday, we are having trouble getting an Elec Subs to bid project on Dec 20th. This is highly specialized work, we have relationships with good Elec Subs that do this work all the time but they need more time, and there is only one Elec Sub who has pulled plans and they need more time for their take-off.
