The purpose of this page is to give you an idea of what it going on. I’m not promising it’s perfect (software, remember?). Soooooooooo before you go “flaming” about screw-ups by City Staff, either go look at the original on the City’s Website or trot your self downtown and read the “paper version” at City Hall.

Subject: Proposal for Engineering Service to Provide Responses to Comments Regarding the Water Distribution System and Sewer Collection System Components of the City of Livingston Blueberry Crossing Project ADEIR

Dear Mr. Gottiparthy:

In accordance with your request and email correspondence, we are pleased to submit this letter proposal for Engineering Services to provide responses to comments regarding the water distribution system and sewer collection system components of the City of Livingston Blueberry Crossing Project (Project) Administrative Draft Environmental Impact Report (ADEIR). The Project is generally described as a 33-acre site near Campbell Boulevard, Dwight Way, and Highway 99. The Project will include a hotel, retail shops, and a conference center.

In 2007, Carollo Engineers, Inc. (Carollo) conducted a hydraulic analysis to determine the impact of the proposed Project on the existing collection system and water distribution system, and to determine if the improvements proposed in the final 2007 water and wastewater master plans required any increase to serve the project. The results of this analysis were incorporated into the ADEIR.

Review Comments to the City of Livingston Blueberry Crossing Project ADEIR and Prepare Letter Report with Responses

Carollo will review the comments regarding the water distribution system and sewer collection system components of the Project’s ADEIR dated June 8, 2010 and provide responses in a letter report. This task assumes that additional system analysis will not be required and only clarification will be needed.

Schedule and Fee

The estimated completion date of these tasks is two weeks from notice to proceed. As consideration for providing the services referenced in this letter, the City shall pay ENGINEER in accordance with Carollo’s applicable fee schedule at the time the services are provided. The current schedule dated March 2010 is attached hereto; said schedule to be updated periodically. A budget estimate of five thousand dollars ($5,000) is here by established for Carollo’s services unless amended by scope of work or schedule changes.
