Staff recommends approval of Requisition #40783 to Siemens Water Technologies Corp. for $49,170.00 to purchase lift station monitoring equipment for the Environmental Services Department.
The purpose of this purchase is to upgrade and repair the lift station control panels in the water and wastewater system for Royal Highlands by acquiring six complete Remote Terminal Units (RTU), two rebuild kits for existing RTU’s, and one master radio for the Royal Highlands Water Plant.
This purchase will allow the Royal Highlands lift stations to be integrated into the current Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system used by Environmental Services to monitor and manage the entire water and wastewater system in the City. These systems allow City personnel to remotely monitor the systems in real time. The information obtained allows for better control, management, and troubleshooting of the systems.
The SCADA system used by the Environmental Services Department is proprietary to Siemens Water Technologies which results in a sole source purchase from Siemens. Both the price quotation and the sole source letter from the manufacturer have been attached for your review.
1. Approve the purchase from Siemens Water Technologies Corp.; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
Funding is budgeted and available in the account listed below.
