Explanation

This legislation authorizes the Director of Public Utilities to renew an existing contract for liquid land application of biosolids with regional storage services with Synagro Central, LLC. This contract provides for the application of sewage sludge for agricultural purposes at the Division of Sewerage and Drainage (DOSD) Compost Facility and Southerly and Jackson Pike Wastewater Treatment Plants. The work generally shall include agronomic land application of up to 10% total solids (TS) liquid biosolids, tank pumping and cleaning services, and the transport of 25% TS dewatered biosolids cake. The Contractor is responsible for professional management of the program, which includes preparing site authorization requests, samples, daily activity reports, weekly progress reports, and invoices and submitting this information to the City’s Project Manager.

The Department of Public Utilities solicited a Request for Proposals (RFP) in accordance with the relevant provisions of Chapter 329 of City Code relating to professional service contracts (Solicitation SA003857). Two hundred forty-seven (247) vendors were solicited and two proposals were received and opened on April 15, 2011. Discussions and negotiations with the selected firm resulted in the award of the contract to Synagro Central, LLC.

The original contract was in effect for one (1) year to and including August 4, 2016. The contract language allows the Department of Public Utilities to extend the contract for nine (9) additional years, on a year-to-year basis, contingent upon mutual agreement of the parties, availability of budgeted funds, and approval of City Council. This will be the 10th renewal of the contract and will extend the contract term to and including August 4, 2023. If unforeseen issues or difficulties are encountered that require additional funding, a modification would be requested.
