Meeting Date:           October 22, 2007


From:                          Raymond S. Sharp, Director, Environmental Services/Public Works


Subject:                      Resolution authorizing Task Order Number 27 to Boyle Engineering Corporation’s contract to design improvements to the Turnpike Water Reclamation Facility



Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of Task Order Number 27  for designing improvements to the Turnpike Water Reclamation Facility.



The 2007 Bond Issue includes a number of improvements to the Turnpike facility.  This task order addresses the two most critical improvements:  design and permitting of an influent pump station and design and permitting of reclaimed water storage and pumping facilities.  


The first is critical because the present design of the facility imposes an artificial back pressure on the upstream lift stations which has the effect of limiting their pumping capacity.  Construction of a proper influent pump station will eliminate that artificial constraint and significantly improve the overall system performance.


The second is critical because the city has obtained a 20% grant from the St. Johns River Water Management District for construction of reclaimed water facilities, funded through the Water Protection and Sustainability Program.  Funding is extremely competitive; in order to maintain grant funding, the City  must start construction in a timely fashion – this is the  last year of the allocation.  The District has rolled over unused funds from last fiscal year to allow them to be used for this project, as well as those funds allocated for the current fiscal year grant.


Boyle Engineering Corporation has successfully designed the Main Wastewater Treatment Plant improvements which include conversion of that facility to reuse; Boyle has a long history of performing similar design and permitting projects in Lake County and in Central Florida.  Additionally, because Boyle has completed the Capacity Analysis Report and the Operations and Maintenance Performance Review for the Turnpike Facility, they are thoroughly knowledgeable of all aspects of the facility and its permitting requirements. 


Accordingly, to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort and engineering costs and because of Boyle’s capabilities and capacity to perform the necessary work, staff has requested them to prepare the attached task order.  The majority of services and project management for this Task Order will be performed by Boyle from their Leesburg office.



1.  Authorize Task Order 27 to Boyle Engineering Corporation for design of improvements to the Turnpike Water Reclamation Facility, or;

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate


Fiscal Impact

Funding for these projects is provided by the 2007 bond issue.
