<br />Huntington Drive Sewer Capacity Improvement Phase 2 Project <br />May 2, 2017 <br />Page 1 of 3 <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />DATE: May 2, 2017 <br /> <br />TO: Honorable Mayor and City Council <br /> <br />FROM: Tom Tait, Public Works Services Director <br /> By: Eddie Chan, P.E., Principal Civil Engineer <br /> <br />SUBJECT: CONTRACT WITH MNR CONSTRUCTION, INC. FOR PHASE 2 OF THE <br />HUNTINGTON DRIVE SEWER CAPACITY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT <br />IN THE AMOUNT OF $274,051 <br /> Recommendation: Approve <br /> <br />SUMMARY <br /> <br />The City of Arcadia’s 2006 Sewer Master Plan study identified and prioritized sections <br />of sanitary sewer pipe that are flowing at or above design capacity. Based on the study, <br />the section of sewer pipe on Huntington Drive between Centennial Way and the <br />connection point to the Los Angeles County Sewer District (“LACSD”) sewer system <br />needs to be replaced in order to accommodate peak sewer flows. The Fiscal Year <br />2016-17 Capital Improvement Program budget allocates funding to replace the existing <br />12-inch sewer pipe with a 16-inch sewer pipe to alleviate the high demand on the <br />existing sewer pipe. To ensure that the City is receiving the most competitive prices and <br />quality service for this work, a formal bid was conducted and MNR Construction, Inc. <br />submitted the lowest responsive bid. <br /> <br />It is recommended that the City Council approve, and authorize and direct the City <br />Manager to execute a contract with MNR Construction, Inc. for Phase 2 of the <br />Huntington Drive Sewer Capacity Improvement Project in the amount of $274,051, plus <br />a 10% contingency. <br /> <br />DISCUSSION <br /> <br />In 2006, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted the Waste Discharge <br />Requirement Program for all publicly owned sanitary sewer collection systems in <br />California with more than one mile of sewer pipeline. Under this program, the City was <br />required to prepare and implement a Sewer System Management Plan (“SSMP”). The <br />SSMP identifies routine preventative operation and maintenance activities that assist <br />the City in achieving a goal of zero sewer system overflows. This is achieved through <br />annual inspections, routine cleaning of the sewer pipes, repair of broken pipes, and <br />replacement of pipes flowing above their design capacity. <br /> <br />
