Option 2: OHM will submit a preliminary storm structures map following the field survey for the Village staff to draw in the storm pipes and diameters. This map will be resubmitted to OHM where a technician will transfer this information per the Village staffs notes to the final wall map. Once complete the final wall map will be as originally proposed but with the addition of the pipe locations and diameters, therefore depicting the complete system at a cost of $1,600.00.
