The horizontal collector well, which supplies a significant portion of the raw water to the Courtney Bend Water Plant, was rendered inoperable due to a break in its discharge piping. Because of the importance of this water supply with regard to the Water Department’s ability to provide potable water, emergency repairs were deemed necessary by City staff.
Water Department staff contracted Enerfab, Inc., a local contractor with the necessary capability and capacity to execute the required work, to perform the repair. Purchase Order 19000553 for $70,000 was issued to Enerfab, Inc. on 10/31/2018; an estimated value determined to be appropriate based on information available at the time regarding the scope of work required to repair the underground piping.
Enerfab, Inc. performed the necessary repairs and all work is complete, restoring the well to operation at a total invoiced cost to the City of $60,824.82; which is $9,175.18 less than the initial estimate.
This project was funded through the maintenance account in the Water Department’s FY18-19 budget.
