Explanation

1. BACKGROUND: This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to renew the professional engineering services agreement with Hatch Associates Consultants, Inc. for the Blueprint Columbus - Kent / Fairwood Area Project, Capital Improvements Project No. 650870-101202.

*Note: the original agreement was with Chester Engineers. Chester Engineers' name changed to Hatch Associates Consultants, FID# 13-6094431. Name change authorized under Ord. #1535-2019, passed 6/24/19.

The objective of this work is for the City to mitigate overflows of Designed Sewer Relief (DSRs) throughout the City’s system to the 10-year Level of Service (LOS). The City will evaluate and determine if this Level of Service is best achieved with strictly Inflow &Infiltration (I/I) elimination with Green Infrastructure (GI) or in combination with some gray infrastructure.

Under the original agreement, the consultant has conducted the required field investigations, property investigations, storm sewer cleaning and televising, hydraulic modeling & alternative analysis to determine the preferred alternative within the Livingston Avenue area. The consultants have used this data to assemble the 30% project plans and are currently work towards their 60% plan submittal.

This planned contract renewal (No. 1) will provide the funding necessary to conduct additional public meetings and outreach, complete the designs of the GI and private property work as well as the assembly of the bid documents for each of the phases.

This renewal will also provide for water main improvements in the area bounded by East Main St., Rhoads Ave., Livingston Ave., and Miller Ave. There will be approximately 3,710 linear feet of waterline replaced.

Community Planning Area = “62 - Livingston Avenue Area”
