Staff recommends approval of Task Order No. 21 with AECOM U.S.A., Inc. for the Lake Hollywood Drainage Basin Best Management Practices Final Design.
This final design of the Lake Hollywood Drainage Basin will be, in part, composed of previously prepared conceptual plans for Best Management Practice (BMP) projects. These BMP’s define the treatment of non-point source pollution, potentially attributable to stormwater runoff from the Lake Hollywood sub-basin to Lake Harris. This final design will incorporate the use of four nutrient separating baffle boxes as well as construction of a wetland treatment system. The conceptual plans were submitted to the Federal Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Agency for cooperative funding under Section 319, Non-Point Source Management Program. FDEP has notified the City that the construction portion of the project has been selected for grant funding. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will release the grant funds in September or October. At that time, Environmental Services will bring the agreement to the Commission.
Task Order No. 21 is for the design portion of the project which is the City of Leesburg’s responsibility.
The engineers cost estimate for the project is;
Monitoring $ 75,000.00
Public Involvement $ 7,000.00
Admin/Final Report $ 8,000.00
The FDEP grant provides sixty percent of the construction costs with at maximum match not to exceed $217,800.00
1. Approve Task Order No. 21 as presented; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
$142,000.00 is budgeted and available in the Stormwater Fund.
