Staff recommends approval of the resolution authorizing the execution of contract amendment # 1 with Jones, Edmunds & Associates, Inc. (JEA) for a Stormwater Data Inventory analysis for development of the City’s Stormwater Geo-database (GDB) for a total amount of $75,170.00.
The City has an existing professional services agreement with JEA to provide engineering services for City requirements. The original agreement was approved under resolution 8316 October 27, 2008.
Jones Edmunds & Associates (JEA) will help the City complete the development of the stormwater GDB by developing a more complete and connected stormwater network for asset management and modeling functions which will begin with this 4-square mile project.
When the pilot area project is complete JEA will provide the City with a proposal to complete the system-wide stormwater inventory. Similar GDB’s are being used in addressing pollutant discharge in compliance with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Stormwater permitting program; potential flooding concerns; and managing stormwater system resources.
The GDB can be maintained and used for studies, and as a tool for decision making for stormwater related projects.
This project will be funded by the Stormwater utility. Funds have been budgeted and are available in the account listed.
