AGENDA ITEM: Resolution Awarding the Wastewater Treatment Plant SCADA System Upgrade and Integration Project to Tesco Controls.
MEETING DATE: March 3, 2015
PREPARED BY: Alfonso Manrique, Alternate City Engineer REVIEWED BY: Odi Ortiz, Interim City Manager
City Council to adopt Resolution No. 2015-_, awarding the upgrade and integration of the Wastewater Treatment Plant SCADA System to Tesco Controls.
BACKGROUND AND DISCUSSION:
The City’s Domestic Wastewater Treatment Plant (DWWTP) was constructed in 2004. The current SCADA system has been in service since the plant was constructed. Some of the hardware and software components are obsolete and need to be upgraded to improve the reliability of the remote monitoring system and to preserve the integrity of the data stored in the servers.
The City’s sewer collection system has five sewer lift stations that are not remotely monitored. Problems at these lift stations are usually detected during necessary routine inspections. A SCADA system at these five lift stations would allow remote monitoring of the equipment and liquid levels. The SCADA will minimize the risk of sewer backups and sewer overflows.
The City’s water system SCADA and DWWTP SCADA use Tesco Controls technology. Staff is familiar with the performance and service provided by Tesco Controls. To maintain consistency in the water and sewer utilities, staff recommends that Tesco Controls provide the upgrade and integration of the DWWTP SCADA and the five lift stations.
Tesco Controls has provided a proposal to complete this work and is attached to this Staff Report. Tesco’s proposal is competitive in price and staff recommends that the project be awarded to Tesco Controls.
The upgrade and integration of the SCADA System was included in the FY 2014/15 Sewer Capital Fund budget at a cost of $208,570.
