Explanation
 
The purpose of this legislation is to authorize the Director of Public Utilities to enter into an agreement with Consolidated Electric Cooperative, Inc. to supply electrical power to the Division of Water's newly constructed Upgroung Reservoir R-2, the Upground Reservoir Raw Pump Station and the Upground Reservoir Raw Water Pipeline.  The City of Columbus ("City"), Department of Public Utilities, Division of Water ("DOW"), following the recommendations of the Water Beyond 2000 Study, is constructing the first of three upground reservoirs (R-2 - Project No. 690370, Contract 1032 - Part I), a pump station (Contract 1032 - Part II), and a pipeline (Contract 1032 - Part III) in Delaware and Union counties to address the increase in water demands as Central Ohio continues to grow.  As part of the construction of these three contracts, the City must provide power to this facility. DOW desires authorization to enter into an agreement with Consolidated Electric Cooperative, Inc. to provide the necessary power.
 
 
SUPPLIER:  Consolidated Electric Cooperative, Inc.  (31-4259080) is a Non-Profit Organization.
FISCAL IMPACT: There is no immediate fiscal impact as a result of this ordinance as it only addresses the authorization for the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a service agreement with the power provider, Consolidated Electric Cooperative, Inc.  Once the pertinent Upground Reservoir construction is completed and the facilities are put in to use, the Division of Water's Dublin Road Water Treatment Plant will pay for power use through their operating funds.
