Revision of C1479-16(2021) Standard Practice for Installation of Precast Concrete Sewer, Storm Drain, and Culvert Pipe Using Standard Installations


None Provided


This ballot item for C1479 is issued to clarify some wording. The last sentence in Section 8.3 needs to be changed since it implies that gravelly soils migrate. We also propose to eliminate the word outer (as in bedding) in Section 9.4 since it restricts the purpose and benefits of the use of in situ soils. Bedding restrictions on aggregate size are addressed in the last sentence, in the next section (9.5), and elsewhere in the Standard.
