Agenda Item Summary:
Portions of the existing water distribution system located within the Springbrook Acres Subdivision are in need for improvements. The existing water lines were design with two pressure reducing valve (PRV) stations tying them into the City water distribution system, these PRV’s have reached the end of their service life. The PRV stations were required at the time of development due to the water pressure zone available, however over the years the City has expanded its pressure zones, and now has the ability to remove the existing PRV stations. Staff is also proposing to improve the existing pipe material and loop the existing system to provide a more robust system, adapting it to the corresponding pressure zones and to facilitate future maintenance. A Request for Proposal (RFP) will be advertised to obtain engineering services as required to evaluate the existing system, provide recommendations for improvements, prepare plans, specifications, and estimates for the City. The selected consultant will also assist during the bidding process and provide construction administration services during construction. Staff will return at a later date for council authorization to bid the project for construction.
