OPS Structures Committee

March 30, 2021


The OPS Structures Committee will be converting and publishing OPSS.1204 (Material Specification for Polyvinyl Chloride Waterstops) from a Common (COMM) specification to Municipal (MUNI) specification in November 2021. The Committee is reaching out to MEA members to request your technical expertise and feedback on the subject matter. 

CLICK HERE! to review the standard and consider whether there are any sections in the standard that are no longer valid, or that would create obstacles in any related contracts or projects. If there are any additional specifications that should be referenced to meet industry demand, any new technologies from which this standard would benefit, or any general comments or concerns, please reach out to the Structures Committee Chair, John Stephenson, before May 1, 2021.

The OPS Structures Committee greatly appreciates MEA members taking the time to provide feedback on proposed specification updated. This helps to ensure that our standards are up to date with industry standards and best practices, as well as helping to create more consistent methodologies across Ontario.
