BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Mid-Dakota Rural Water System, Inc., a corporation, shall bear the expense of any subsequent movement of the pipeline, if such is required by Sanborn County.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that when the pipeline is installed in the public right-of-way, such right-of-way shall be restored to as near its original condition as is practical with normal construction methods.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the installation of such pipeline and appurtenances in the public right-of-way shall conform to plans and specifications to be submitted to the County, prior to construction, for review and commend, and said plans shall include the following conditions:

1.  Notice Prior to Starting-Work: Before starting construction work, the County Road Superintendent or other designated employee of the County will be notified at least 48 hours in advance of the time work is to begin.

2. Minimum Interference with Traffic: All work will be planned and carried out so as to minimize inconvenience to the traveling public.

3. Storage of Material:  No material shall be stored within eight (8) feet from the edge of pavement or traveled way or within the shoulder line unless otherwise approved by the County Superintendent.

4. Clean Up Right-of-Way:  Upon completion of work, litter will be removed and the right-of-way left in as presentable a condition as before work started.

8. Paved and FAS (Future Paved) Roadways: Pipelines installed perpendicular to asphalt or concrete paved roadways will be installed by boring or jacking methods or by an open cut.  Pipelines installed longitudinally in a right-of-way will be by an open cut.  Minimum of one-half of paved surfacing will be left clear and open to traffic at all times. All lanes will remain clear and open during the hours of darkness.

9. Graveled and Other Roadways: Pipelines installed transversely or longitudinally in a graveled or other road right-of-way will be by an open cut method. Roadways may be closed during construction for crossings provided detour signing is maintained. All lanes will remain clear and open during the hours of darkness.  Pipelines installed longitudinally in right-of-way will be by an open cut.

10. Depth of Pipelines:  Pipelines will be placed to a depth of cover consistent with design standards for water pipelines for the area. Where additional pipeline cover is necessary to accommodate future roadways, vertical and horizontal roadway designed clearances, the County shall so advise Mid-Dakota at the time of County review of the need for additional pipeline cover.
