Explanation

BACKGROUND: This Ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to renew and increase the professional engineering services agreement with Dynotec, Inc. for the Plant Drain & Water System Improvements Project, Capital Improvements Project No. 690552-100000, Division of Water Contract No. 2091.

Design conventions and best practices for building drain systems have changed since the HCWP and PAWP were constructed. Currently, some drain systems discharge to undesirable locations or have the potential to mix incompatible chemicals, which does not meet best design practices and could adversely impact the environment or the drinking water supply when a chemical spill occurs. Plant water systems at the HCWP, PAWP, and DRWP need various improvements to address corroded pipe/fittings/couplings/supports/restraints, to add additional pipe supports, to provide pipe restraint, and replace aging valves. This project will modify the building drain systems to address these issues and will replace or modify various portions of the plant water systems to improve safety, reliability, and ease of maintenance.

Work under the original agreement included Condition Assessment & Preliminary Design (Step 1).

Contract Renewal No. 1 (current) will provide Detailed Design and Construction Bidding Services (Step 2).

Contract Renewal No. 2 (future) will continue to provide Engineering Services During Construction (Step 3).

Community Planning Area: “99 - Citywide”; both plants treat several communities throughout central Ohio.

Amount of additional funds to be expended: $1,300,000.00
Original Contract Amount: $ 275,300.00
Renewal 1 (current): $1,300,000.00
Total (Orig. + Renewal 1): $1,575,300.00
