RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the Council accept the low bid from Conco West, Inc. for $1,542,000.00 and authorize the Interim City Manager to sign the Agreement on behalf of the City of Livingston (City).

BACKGROUND:

The City of Livingston’s Well No. 17 was drilled a few years ago as part of the Sun Valley Estates subdivision but was not completed.

In 2013, the City received a CDBG grant that included $1,395,349.00 to be used towards the completion of the well.

Water quality analysis of the well revealed levels of manganese and arsenic close to the maximum contaminant level (MCL) allowed. Consequently, in addition to completing the well, the City decided to also install wellhead treatment facilities to remove those constituents.

The City Council approved the purchase of treatment equipment from Loprest Water Treatment Co. in December 2014. The major work for the project will include equipping the well, installing the treatment equipment, and site improvements.

The project was advertised on August 3, 2015, August 10, 2015, August 17, 2015, and August 24, 2015 and bids were opened September 3, 2015.
