18-0055 114.1Authorization to Evaluate Sewer Laterals from Tubbs FireCC- ReportREPORT - AUTHORIZATION FOR LIMITED ACCESS TO PROPERTIES DESTROYED IN THE TUBBS FIRE TO EVALUATE SEWER LATERALS AND, IF NECESSARY, SUSPEND DISCHARGE TO THE TREATMENT PLANT BACKGROUND: The Tubbs fire damaged or destroyed approximately 3,000 residential and commercial structures that are connected to the City of Santa Rosa’s sewer collection system. During recent storm events, these damaged sewer laterals allowed storm water runoff, ash, debris and potentially hazardous waste to enter the sewer collection system. Depending on the magnitude of the rain event, this excessive inflow and infiltration has the potential to cause sanitary sewer overflows throughout the collection system and could foul the filtration and biological treatment systems at the City’s wastewater treatment plant. The exposed sewer laterals pose a threat to the health and safety of the general public and to the operations at the wastewater collection and treatment facility. Staff has made every effort to coordinate with the debris removal process underway through the direction of the Army Corps of Engineers, whichto waive reading of the text and adoptPass Action details Video Video
18-0050 114.2Contract Award - Emergency Sewer LateralCC- ReportREPORT - CONTRACT AWARD - EMERGENCY SEWER LATERAL PLUGGING WITHIN AFFECTED TUBBS FIRE AREA - SKYFARM & HANSFORD CT BACKGROUND: The approximately 3,000 residential and commercial properties damaged or destroyed by the Tubbs fire are very likely to have sewer service laterals in a broken, leaking or obstructed condition that are a public nuisance pursuant to City Code section 15-06.090 of the City of Santa Rosa. The imminent winter wet season will exacerbate and compound the adverse effects of the public nuisance as it will increase the likelihood of unauthorized inflow and infiltration into the wastewater collection system. RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the Transportation and Public Works Department that the Council, by motion, award Contract No. C02163, Emergency Sewer Lateral Plugging Within Affected Tubbs Fire Area - Skyfarm and Hansford Ct, in the amount of $225,605.00 to the lowest responsible bidder, TerraCon Constructors, Inc. of Healdsburg, CA, approve a 15% contract contingency, and authorize a total contract amount of $259,445.75.approvedPass Action details Video Video
