The following Supplemental requirements for subsurface investigation and submittals are prepared to provide additional guidance for consistent geotechnical test data collection and submittal for all WSSC Water projects. The document contains a checklist for subsurface investigations and sample standard boring, test pit and soil corrosion summary reports. Please note that the document is intended to be used as supplemental requirement to provisions in WSSC Water’s pipe line design manual.
gINT software by Bentley Systems Inc. is used to manage, report, and database geotechnical information. The gINT Library and Data template files provided below have been customized for WSSC Water projects. The WSSC gINT library .glb library file contains gINT rule codes, standard boring, test pit logs and soil corrosion test summary reports. The WSSC Water gINT Template.gdt template file contains the data base structure for cloning into new project database files. Example Pipe Line Project.gpj is an example project database file with data. Refer to WSSC Water gINT V8i standards document for additional information.
