Explanation

1.0 BACKGROUND: This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to enter into a construction contract with Peterson Construction Co. for the Parsons Avenue Water Plant (PAWP) Collector Well Pump Replacement CW 101,104 and 115 Project, in an amount up to $5,896,050.00; to encumber funds with the Department of Public Service for prevailing wage services in an amount up to $2,000.00; for Capital Improvements Project No. 690533-100002, Division of Water Contract Number 2201.

This project will remove and replace three existing vertical turbine pumps at each of the existing Collector Wells-101, 104 and 115 including associated piping, valves, electric gear, control equipment, access hatches and related appurtenances. The existing pumps have been in service well beyond their useful life expectancy.

Community Planning Area = “99 - Citywide” since the PAWP serves several communities.

2.0 ECONOMIC IMPACT/ADVANTAGES; COMMUNITY OUTREACH; PROJECT DEVELOPMENT; ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS/ADVANTAGES OF PROJECT:
This project will address aging water supply components which are beyond their useful life. The pumps and motors are more than 30 years old, and are showing significant corrosion and metal breakdown of the submerged portion of the pumps which have been rebuilt over the years. Failure of any of these components could result in reduced plant capacity, which could be critical during high demand periods.

Completion of the project will maintain customer reliability and improve pump performance, efficiency and capacity. Increased efficiency translates into increased energy savings and a reduction in maintenance costs.
