Staff recommends approval of an agreement with Siemens Water Technologies providing support and maintenance service for the water and wastewater Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for $60,000 per year.
The SCADA system is used to monitor conditions with the City’s water and wastewater system. The system monitors pumps, water pressure, flow rate, lift stations and many other conditions within both systems. The readings are sent to the main control center where staff can view the operating conditions remotely. Staff can also control equipment remotely from the control center using the SCADA system.
Siemens Water Technologies is the sole source provider for the City’s water and wastewater SCADA control system components. This agreement will provide for monthly visits by an authorized system engineer and a service technician. The services are necessary to maintain the integrity of the monitoring equipment, instrumentation, control panels, and the SCADA computers used to control the system.
The term of this agreement is for a three year period: October 2010 through September 2013. The discounted rate for this service is $60,000 per year. This is a reduction of $12,000.00 per year from previous agreements. The agreement can be terminated should the City choose to do so at a future date.
1. Execute the agreement with Siemens Water Technologies; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The annual amount is $60,000 and is included in the Fiscal Year 2010-11 budget in the accounts listed.
