Staff recommends approval of Task 30 to Boyle Engineering Corporation for design of Turnpike Wastewater Treatment Facility reclaimed water main.
This Task Authorization will provide design, permitting and limited construction phase services for a reclaimed water transmission main to connect the Turnpike Wastewater Treatment Facility to existing reclaimed water transmission and distribution systems constructed by the developers of Arlington Ridge and Legacy subdivisions. This connection, when made will allow for immediate reclaimed water service to approximately 2,000 residential customers as well as the golf course at Arlington Ridge. It will also have an immediate and permanent reduction in groundwater withdrawals of approximately 750,000 gallons per day presently used for irrigation.
Separately, Boyle Engineering Corporation has been previously authorized for design and permitting services for storage, pumping and transmission facilities at the Turnpike plant. This is the next step in the process of construction of the City’s reclaimed water system.
Funding for these services and for construction was provided by the 2007 bond issue and is available. Twenty percent of construction costs, including construction phase services, are provided by the St. Johns River Water Management District under a previous grant to the City for reclaimed water construction projects.
Another engineering firm is providing similar design, permitting and construction phase services for the eastern reclaimed water main extensions from the Canal Street Wastewater Treatment Facility under a separate contract.
A third engineering firm is providing reclaimed water system master planning preliminary design services for north and northwestern extensions from the Canal Street facility for future extensions.
1. Approve Task Authorization 30 as presented in the amount of $129,730; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The costs of design, permitting and construction are fully funded by the 2007 bond issue and 20% matching construction grant funding from the St. Johns River Water Management District. As is typical of transmission mains, future operating costs will be minimal and fully absorbed under the Water Distribution budget.
