Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the City Manager to issue a purchase order to Xylem Dewatering Solutions, Inc. for the rental of pumps necessary for operations at the East Wastewater Treatment Plant.

 

Body

In April 2019, the Brushy Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant main influent lift station suffered multiple pump failures rendering the plant unable to keep up with the demand of daily flow. To keep the plant operable, and in compliance with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the City of Round Rock rented two submersible 6-inch intake pumps and one 10-inch intake diesel skid mounted pump. Initially, these pumps were rented for one month. Due to the additional time to construct the 375 horsepower main lift station's pumps and the unforeseen shipping delays, the wastewater treatment plant had to extend the rental for six months.

The City of Round Rock is requesting to pay Xylem Water Solutions, Inc. $110,000. This amount is divided up between the partner Cities of Austin, Cedar Park, Leander and Round Rock based on the annual operational costs percentages as determined each year by each Cities demand. The City’s portion of operational costs for fiscal year 2020 is 60.30% of the cost, which is $66,330. 

 

Cost: $110,000
