STANDARD PRODUCT LIST APPLICATION PROCESS

City of Round Rock’s Utility and Environmental Services Standard Product List specifies acceptable manufacturer products for use in the construction of water and wastewater facilities. These products have undergone stringent testing to ensure the safety, reliability and consistency within the City of Round Rock water and wastewater system.

Application Process

Product and equipment manufacturers shall submit a written application request for consideration to the City of Round Rock Standard Product List Committee. The application should include all of the information listed in the Standard Product List Application Form. If a portion of the information cannot be provided or is not applicable, information shall be provided listing the reasons why it cannot be provided. The Standard Product List Application Form can be obtained from the following link:

Application Form

Each product request will require its own application submittal.

Products in use by the Utility are subject to ongoing consideration and evaluation by the Standard Product List Committee. When changes, deletions or additions become necessary and are approved, the product list will be revised and included in updates to the Standard Products List.

Review Process

Each product application will be reviewed by the Standard Product List committee. Based on the committee’s review of the application form, the committee may request the following additional information:

  • Additional product information
  • Presentation by the manufacturer
  • Product samples
  • Test installation of the product. Field evaluation of the installation for up to one (1) year may be required to assess the performance of the product
  • Any other action the committee deems necessary to fully evaluate the product

A two-thirds majority vote is required to accept any new product. The committee will advise the applicant of the decision regarding the product. If the product is accepted, the newly accepted product will be added to the appropriate Standard Products List (SPL). Updates to the Standard Products Lists (including additions and deletions of products and vendors, or changes to products descriptions) will be made on a semi-annual basis.

Products will be under constant evaluation as they are used in the water, reclaimed water, and wastewater systems. When changes, deletions or additions become necessary and are approved, the product list will be revised and included in updates to the Standard Products List.

Problems regarding accepted products may lead to a recommendation to rescind approval. The Standard Product List Committee retains the right to rescind approval of any product on the Standard Product List it is deemed necessary.
