BILL NO. 17-1071st R.

Agenda Title:

17-107 - 1R. An ordinance authorizing a contract with Layne Christensen Company to rehabilitate and overhaul Well No.’s 4, 12, 17, 24, 38, & 39 at the Courtney Bend Water Plant for the full sum of $280,806.00; authorizing future minor change orders in a total amount not to exceed $28,081.00; and/or time extensions as deemed appropriate; and appropriating $58,887.00 from the Water Fund’s net assets.

Council approval is recommended to award the contract to rehabilitate and overhaul well no.’s 4, 12, 17, 24, 38, and 39 at the Courtney Bend Water Plant to Layne Christensen Company in the amount of $280,806.00.

These production wells provide water to the Courtney Bend Water Plant, supporting the plant’s ability to meet consumer demand. These wells were lasted rehabilitated and overhauled 9 or more years ago. Data collected by the Water Department staff indicates that output capacity of each well has decreased significantly, and the mechanical equipment of each well requires servicing to prevent these resources from experiencing failure and being unavailable for treated water production. Upon completion of this project, these wells are expected to provide over 4.5 million gallons of water per day to the Courtney Bend Water Plant.
