Design Standards and Specifications

Effective January 1, 2020, the Aurora Water implemented a revised edition to the standards and specifications manual. This document will provide construction and acceptance standards for public and private water, sanitary sewer and storm drainage infrastructure.

Notable revisions to the specifications include:

  • Requirements to insure underground infrastructure is electronically locatable such as marker systems for non-metallic piping and required clean-outs on all new and repaired sanitary sewer service laterals.
  • Requirements to conduct and provide pre-design potholing to confirm elevations where proposed utility construction will cross existing infrastructure and/or connect to existing utility infrastructure for all new civil plan submittals.
  • Requirements to provide As-Built Record Drawings prior to initial acceptance.
  • Requirements to provide a layer of coarse aggregate prior to the placement of pre-cast concrete structures.

This specification will also include mandated items that are currently a requirement for current civil plan drawing sets submitted to the City of Aurora.

These include:

  • Requirements to provide backflow prevention devices for water service connections serving all non-single family residential uses including fire suppression systems, commercial, and multi-family users. This includes master metered single family attached units which are considered a multi-family user.

  • Requirements for the submission of CAD files prior to the approval of civil plan submittals.

  • Requirements to provide composite lids for all new water meter pits prior to the meter set request.
