Know the reason for this important requirement in Chula Vista!

What is a Chula Vista California Grading and/or Drainage Bond?

Before any contractor can start any grading or improvement work within the City of Chula Vista, he or she must obtain this surety bond.

This bond will ensure that the contractor will perform the work in accordance with the standard drawings and specifications of the City of Chula Vista as determined by the City Engineer. The City Engineer will prepare the street structural sections in compliance with the “Standardized Method of Street Structural Design.” Some of these include the following:

  • The contractor must ensure that the drainage pattern of any adjacent improved or unimproved property will be taken into consideration when making drainage provisions.
  • Drainage facilities and concepts shall be performed in accordance with the provisions of CVMC Title 14.
  • Grading shall conform to the relevant ordinances of the City.

As part of the bond condition, the contractor will be required to perform the work according to Chapter 15.04 and Chapter 18.36 of the Chula Vista Municipal Code.

How does the Chula Vista California Grading and/or Drainage Bond work?

This bond will serve as a protection for the Obligee (City of Chula Vista) in case the Principal (Contractor) disobeys the contractual obligations. When that happens, the Surety (surety bond provider) will make sure that the Obligee will be paid.

The Obligee will first have to file a claim against the bond. The claim will then be investigated by the Surety before any payment is made. If the claim is substantial, the surety will pay the necessary amount up to the face value of the bond.

How much does a Chula Vista California Grading and/or Drainage Bond cost?

The bond cost will depend on the principal’s credit score. If you have an excellent credit score, you will be eligible to pay as little as 1% to 2% of the total bond amount.

The bond amount will be determined by the City Engineer of Chula Vista.
