COUNCIL ACTION:  Approved on 10/10/2017 

DATE: 10/10/2017 REFERENCE NO.: **C-28426 LOG NAME: 60ROLLING HILLS WTP SLUDGE EVALUATION
CODE: C TYPE: CONSENT PUBLIC HEARING: NO
SUBJECT:   Authorize Execution of Agreement with Alan Plummer Associates, Inc., in the Amount of $129,000.00 for the Rolling Hills Water Treatment Plant Sludge Evaluation Study (COUNCIL DISTRICT 8)

RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the City Council Authorize the execution of an Agreement with Alan Plummer Associates, Inc., in the amount of $129,000.00 for the Rolling Hills Water Treatment Plant (WTP) Sludge Evaluation.

 
DISCUSSION:

The Fort Worth Water Department owns and operates five Water Treatment Plants (WTP) that discharge sludge to sanitary sewers for eventual processing at the Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility (VCWRF).  The Rolling Hills WTP is the largest FWWD plant, currently rated at 200 million gallons per day capacity.  Costs to dewater, process and dispose of dewatered bio-solids at the VCWRF have increased substantially over the last few years, which raises the question of whether it would be more economical to collect, dewater and dispose of water plant residuals at the water plant site instead of via the current process at VCWRF.  This study will focus on quantifying the capital, operating, maintenance and life cycle costs to dewater, process and dispose of water plant residuals from the Rolling Hills WTP.

Alan Plummer Associates, Inc., proposes to perform the necessary design evaluation services for a not to exceed fee of $129,000.00.  Staff considers this proposed fee to be fair and reasonable for the scope of services proposed.

M/WBE OFFICE – Alan Plummer Associates, Inc., is in compliance with the City's BDE Ordinance by committing to 10 percent SBE participation.  The City's SBE goal on this project is 10 percent.

This project is located in the COUNCIL DISTRICT 8.

 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that funds are available in the Fiscal Year 2018 operating budget, as appropriated, of the Water & Sewer Fund, and that prior to an expenditure being made, the Water department has the responsibility to validate the availability of funds.
