Project Manager/Owner

To help protect the health of on-site personnel and maintain good community relations, project owners should establish a clean diesel policy for their projects.

Key Elements of a Successful Clean Diesel Policy:

  • Include Clean diesel specifications or performance standards in contracts.
  • Use NEDC model contract specification (PDF) (11 pp, 100K, April 2008, About PDF) to provide clean diesel language in construction contracts.
  • Emphasize the clean diesel policy during the bid process and throughout project.
  • Hold construction managers accountable for successfully implementing the clean diesel policy by making sure they:
    • Thoroughly understand all elements of the policy
    • Fully educate all contractors on clean diesel requirements throughout the duration of the project.
    • Implement a tracking system.
    • See that all contract requirements are met.
  • Respond to and resolve all issues regarding the policy.
