Wastewater Qualified Products List
The City of Baton Rouge/Parish of East Baton Rouge Department of Environmental Services has a Qualified Products List (QPL) to evaluate new products which shall be used on the department’s typical sanitary sewer construction and maintenance projects. Materials identified on the QPL do not require a certificate of compliance unless the need for such a document is specifically identified in the material requirements, by specifications, or departmental request. Listing of a Material on the QPL does not constitute a waiver of the Contractor’s obligation to submit product information such as the product cut sheet/shop drawing, manufacturer’s recommended installation procedures or other data requested by the Owner. Materials on the QPL will be re-evaluated on an as-needed basis. In addition to materials on the list meeting certification requirements, they can also be inspected and/or tested to verify conformance to the specifications. Any materials presently on the list and subsequently failing to conform to the certification or specification requirements can be removed at any time.
Be advised, the QPL is for informational purposes and is not intended to be all-inclusive. If the product meets the specifications outlined in the Contract Documents but is not on the QPL, it may be used as long as the necessary certification documents are submitted according to the specifications, reviewed, and deemed as an approved equal by the Owner and Engineer. The inclusion of a product on this list does not imply that the product meets any or all applicable State or Federal regulations related to safety or environmental issues in effect at the time. The manufacturer’s Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) should be referred to before and during use of any product appearing on this list. This list is intended as an information tool for contractors, engineering consultants, and Department personnel to identify products meeting the Department’s standards or specifications for particular applications. The use of any product listed on this site by a contractor shall in no way relieve contractors from their contractual obligations.

PLEASE NOTE: This QPL assumes no liability on the part of the City of Baton Rouge/Parish of East Baton Rouge or its Program Manager for the products included nor is it intended to promote any product, supplier, or manufacturer over another.
