Repair to pre-disaster conditions; Eligible work; Administrative Costs
As a result of heavy rainfall during the Winter Storms of February 2005, Project Worksheet (PW) 800 was prepared in November 2005 for road distress at six locations in Riverside County. The PW describes the observed damage to the road at all six sites as pavement (alligator) cracking caused by fatigue failure due to repeated traffic loading over an extended period of time. At each of the six sites the pavement was described as old and brittle. Therefore, a PW was written for the amount of zero dollars ($0.00) because the damage was not a direct result of the incident, but rather a lack of road maintenance at the six sites. The Applicant is requesting that FEMA reconsider the eligibility determination to allow for pavement repairs and administrative costs for a total project cost of $598,000.
1) Should the scope of work be revised to allow for the repair of damaged asphalt pavement in the amounts described in the PW damage description?
2) Should the total project cost be increased to $598,227 as requested for repairs to the damaged asphalt pavement?
1) No. The failure of the asphalt surface occurred prior to the declared event.
