Explanation

1.0 BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with The Righter Co., Inc. for the Watershed Miscellaneous Improvements - Hoover Dam Miscellaneous Improvements Project; in an amount up to $547,229.80; for Division of Water Contract Number 2016.

The Hoover Dam, constructed in 1955, provides supply to the Hap Cremean Water Plant, the largest of the three water plants operated by the Division of Water. Due to the age of the dam several systems are in need of rehabilitation and/or improvement. This project will construct the improvements identified by the Independent Consultant Inspection Project (CIP No. 690411-100004). Improvements will consist of drainage modifications to facilities, abandoning existing instrumentation, repairing select steps at Hoover Dam, and other such work as may be necessary to complete the contract, in accordance with the plans and specifications on file.

Planning Area: “99” since the project is located outside of Columbus City limits.

2.0 ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT: This project will address improvement needs for drainage components associated with Hoover Dam. The Hoover Dam provides water for the City of Columbus Hap Cremean Water Plant, which serves more than 500,000 customers.

There will be no public meetings held regarding this project. Hoover Dam is critical infrastructure and the project will be managed accordingly. The Division of Water will be responsible for coordinating with stakeholders.
