Explanation

The purpose of this ordinance is to authorize the Director of Public Utilities to enter into contract with ADS LLC for the procurement of flow monitors, level sensors, and modem upgrade kits. These items are needed to aid in the completion of various sewer engineering projects.

ADS is the manufacturer and distributor of DOSD’s level sensors and flow monitors. This brand is Class 1 Division 1 (explosion proof), which is required to avoid sewer gas explosions. The installations will be inside of sewer manholes where methane is presence is possible. We are aware of no other sewer level sensors or flow monitors which have this classification and support the existing communiction infrastructure of the control system for live data connections. The purchase also includes upgrades to many exisiting ADS flow monitors already installed within sewer collection system. The upgrade components are needed to update the flow meters to transition their cellular connection from 3G to 4G as Verizon is ending 3G support in 2019. ADS is the sole supplier for the component upgrades with the existing flow meters. All of the currently installed sensors within the collections system are ADS brand. This allows a smaller inventory of replacement parts, ensures communication with existing computerized systems, reduces the amount of staff training needed, and reduces the required tools for routine maintenance. This ordinance is being submitted in accordance with the relevant provisions of Chapter 329 of City Code relating to Sole Source procurement.
