Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to modify and increase the professional engineering services agreement with CH2M Hill Engineers, Inc. for the Hap Cremean Water Plant (HCWP) Sludge Pump Station Renovations and Electrical Upgrades Project, for Division of Water Contract No. 870.

The original contract provided for the preliminary and detailed design of the project.

Modification No. 1 provided for the Construction Administration and Construction Inspection services for the project.

Modification No. 2 reimbursed funds that provided for the immediate response to the Ohio EPA due to lime sludge spills from the HCWP sludge force main. Modification No. 2 also provided a pilot project requested by the Department of Public Utilities’s Asset Management office to assist in their development of an O&M Ready specification for their reliability centered maintenance initiative and to meet new DPU Asset Management requirements.

This Modification (No. 3) will provide the engineering services needed to select and recommend the replacement of existing quarry pumps, due to repeated failures. These pumps are critical as they dispose of the sludge produced during the water treatment process by pumping it to the McKinley Ave Quarry. During any failures lagoon pumps have been used as backup. However the lime sludge would be pumped to the nearby lagoons which need to be cleaned when they are filled. Removing the sludge from the lagoons and trucking it to the quarry is more expensive than pumping the sludge directly.

1.1 Amount of additional funds to be expended: $108,520.00
Original Contract Amount: $2,150,597.00 (EL005320)
