Summer is here and construction and maintenance season is in full swing.  The Department of Enterprise Services (DES) recently updated Master Contract 02915 for equipment rental with information on biodegradable hydraulic fluid for those planning construction or maintenance activities using hydraulically operated equipment on or near water.  
For information, click on the pricing and ordering link on the contract page. Recent legislation mandates the use of biodegradable hydraulic fluid for certain construction activities. See Washington Administrative Code 220-660-120 (Common Freshwater Construction Provisions), Section 5, Equipment Use, paragraph (d). 
Contract 02915 replaces Contract 01508, heavy equipment rental, and is available to all Master Contract Usage Agreement (MUCA) members including state agencies, political subdivisions, higher-education, tribal governments, 501c3 non-profit organizations and Oregon Co-op members. 
The contract also contains information on insurance that will be helpful to construction and maintenance superintendents and legal counsel. 
        The DES Office of Risk Management offers equipment floater insurance for agency-owned and rented equipment.
        Sudden and accidental pollution is also covered under the State Agency Self-Insurance Liability Program.
