Selection of the pipelines for the detailed assessments shall be through the programmatic risk analysis study. Probable inspection technologies, methodologies and work plans shall be identi-fied. Pipeline appurtenances such as valves, cathodic protection systems, manways, air release valves, vacuum relief valves, drain and blow-off valves, and pipeline structures shall be included in the assessments. The remainder of the Scope of Services is contained in the Request for Proposal for Consultant Services for Programmatic Water Transmission Pipelines Condition Assessment (H135941), as Exhibit A to the Draft Agreement.
