Request for Quotations


Provide all labour, materials, equipment and plant to provide complete cleaning of catch basins, side inlet basins, lawn basins and lateral lines in areas as designated by the City and any other related works subject to the complete satisfaction of the City at various City locations.

Catch basins shall be cleaned, followed by flushing with a high-pressure hose having a minimum capacity of 1500 PSI, to ensure all debris is removed. All foreign materials, including, but not limited to, debris sticks, newsprint, and concrete encrustments, etc. shall be removed from the catch basin. This material shall be disposed to the designated site provided by the City. Where necessary, hand cleaning of the catch basin shall be performed by the Contractor at no additional cost.

Where the level of debris in the catch basin meets or exceeds the invert of the outlet pipe, the leader line must be flushed from the catch basin to the mainline to ensure that there are no obstructions.

Catch basins shall be deemed "clean" once all debris has been completely removed and the actual catch basin structure is visible.
