Agenda Title:

Council action is requested to enter into a price agreement (210-17) for United States Geological Survey Services, for the period of September 19, 2017, through August 31, 2018. The agreement contains two, one-year renewal options.  Expenditures will not exceed budgeted amounts.
Recommendations:

Council action to enter into a price agreement.

Background:

Since 1996, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) has been sampling the monitoring well network surrounding the Independence water well fields.  The monitoring wells provide early warning of any potential contamination approaching the drinking water wells.  This is a sole source agreement, which will continue collection and testing of groundwater samples from the monitoring well network for a three-year period and will compile and analyze the data for trends in groundwater quality that have occurred over the past twenty years. 

 

This is a three-year agreement with the USGS providing matching federal funds. A project proposal is attached.
