The "WHITEBOOK" - San Diego Supplement to the GREENBOOK

The specifications contained in the City Supplement, The "WHITEBOOK," take precedence over the specification language contained in the Standard Specifications for Public Works Construction, "The GREENBOOK" 2018 Edition. The City's "WHITEBOOK" addresses the unique conditions in the City of San Diego that are not addressed in The GREENBOOK. Therefore, if there is a conflict, the "WHITEBOOK" shall control.
