Background

This study will be a continuation of existing project TPF-5(015), with the same scope, objectives, and contractor as the existing project. Beginning with federal fiscal year 2009, the project will be managed under the new pooled fund "transfer" procedures, with a new project number. The TxDOT/TTI Hydraulics, Sedimentation and Erosion Control Laboratory, operated by the Texas Transportation Institute, was established in the late 1980's to test erosion control products and maintain an Approved Product List. Modifications to the Hydraulics and Erosion Control Laboratory were completed in the fall of 2002. Evaluation of slope and channel protection products was moved from outdoors to a state of the art indoor facility.

Scope of Work

Starting in 2010, the laboratory will also evaluate sediment control products for velocity dissipation and sediment capture in channels and inlet devices. Minimum sediment loss standards will be developed and an Approved Products List will be maintained. Funds obligated for this pooled fund effort will be used to continue to operate the facility, generate and disseminate technical data to partner states, and for reimbursing travel expenses to partner states for attending technical committee meetings.

Comments

Suggested minimum annual contribution is $25,000 per state. This solicitation is currently open for five years, but the laboratory is expected to continue to operate after that. Existing partner states are asked to make all commitments for 2009 and forward through this solicitation. New partner states are welcome to join the project.
