1. Accept the work as complete.
2. Authorize the City Clerk to record a Notice of Completion with Merced County.

Well No. 8 was constructed in 1983 and is one of the City’s lead wells. During November 2016, operators observed sand being produced by the well and removed the well from production. Video inspections were conducted to identify the source of the sand being produced by the well. The video inspections revealed a crack in the casing. In order to repair the damage and minimize sand from entering the GAC filters, repairs to the casing were needed and a sand separator needed to be installed.
The project was advertised on March 13, 2017 and March 20, 2017 and bids were opened March 23, 2017. On April 4, 2017, the City received a total of one bid for this project. RTC Construction Management submitted the lowest bid and was awarded a contract for $99,600.00.
The project’s construction phase started in April 2017 and the work consisted of furnishing and installing a sand separator and furnishing and performing miscellaneous repairs at Well #8, including installing a swaged liner inside the casing, concrete slurry filling the bottom 7 ft. of the casing, reinstalling the vertical turbine pump and motor and starting up the well and sand separator.
The Contractor completed all work within the time required by the Contract Documents. A Balancing Change Order was not needed due to the bid quantities being lump sums.
