SUMMARY

 

The Utilities Division of the Public Works & Utilities Department replaces the City’s undersized or structurally damaged sewer mains through capital improvement projects. These projects reduce the risk of potential sanitary sewer overflows, which can cause untreated wastewater to flow into public waterways. This project will install approximately 165 linear feet of 12-inch sanitary sewer main at a new location to increase pipeline capacity and replace a damaged sewer main between Willimet Way and the Highway 92W/Interstate 880N on-ramp within California Department of Transportation’s (Caltrans) right-of-way (Attachment III). The project also includes installation of approximately 200 linear feet of new 8-inch sanitary sewer pipe and manholes and reversing the flow to drain to the new pipe location in Willimet Way.

 

On June 1, 2022, two (2) bids were received. The low bid was $770,218 which is $69,782, or approximately 8% below the Engineer’s estimate of $840,000. Staff is requesting Council’s approval of Addendum No. 1, which provided minor revisions to clarify the specifications, and awarding the contract to the lowest bidder, GSW, in the amount not-to-exceed $855,218, including Administrative Change Orders.  Furthermore, staff is requesting appropriation of additional funds in the amount of $543,675 from the Sewer System Improvement Fund (Fund 612).

 

This project is categorically exempt from environmental review under Section 15301(c) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines for the operation, repair, maintenance, or minor alteration of existing facilities.  Additionally, the Community Workforce Agreement (CWA) requirements do not apply to this project since the project construction cost is less than $1,000,000.
