Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute a Contract for Engineering Services with Tetra Tech for the University Boulevard Waterline Extension Project.

 

Body

In 2015, a 36-inch waterline was constructed along University Boulevard from AW Grimes Boulevard eastward to the future intersection of the Kenny Fort (Arterial A) roadway. This project will extend a 16-inch waterline from that location approximately 4,000 feet east to County Road 110.  The project will also include a metering station located on the southwest corner of University Boulevard and County Road 110.  Included in the scope of the project will be acquiring easements outside the right-of-way to protect the waterline from future expansions of the University Boulevard corridor. 

As part of the Interlocal Agreement for Temporary and Emergency Water Service with Jonah Special Utility District, the waterline will serve as an interconnect to the Jonah water system. Based on the agreement, the City of Round Rock will obtain the water Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN) for the property west of County Road 110. This water extension along University Boulevard will assist with providing water service to these future City of Round Rock utility customers.

Tetra Tech has been chosen from our Capital Improvement Project - Request for Qualifications list as design engineer for this project. The City has negotiated a fee of $135,483 for engineering and construction phase services with Tetra Tech for this project.
