Central Water Treatment Plant Storage Building Improvements

Background and Project Scope
The Central Water Treatment Plant located at 700 NW 91st Avenue has been in existence since the 1980’s.  All of the existing buildings are original construction.  The operation of the facility has changed over the years to the point where additional protected storage of parts and equipment is needed.  Existing storage buildings are in poor condition and are not large enough to accommodate current and projected future needs.  The existing storm drainage system serving the facility has degraded significantly and has been altered to accommodate site storage needs over the years.

The Engineering Department is providing complete ‘in-house’ project administration services for the Utilities Department to include design storage building improvements for the facility, analysis of storm drainage requirements  and design for upgrades to the existing storm drainage system, together with bidding and construction management.

Project Status
A schematic design for new storage buildings is complete.  Department staff is currently analyzing the site for storm drainage requirements. A preliminary storm drainage improvement design is scheduled to be completed by October 2018.  After which, staff will proceed with permitting through OPWCD and final project design with the goal of having the project ready for bidding by January 2019.


East Water Treatment Plant Roof Replacement

Background and Project Scope
The existing roofing system servicing the membrane treatment building at the East Water Treatment Plant facility located at 500 NW 65th Avenue has exceeded its useful life span and the building is experiencing roof leaks on a regular basis.  The existing roofing system will be replaced with a new single-ply roofing system.

Project Status
Construction of the replacement roofing system is approximately 90% complete and is expected to be 100% on or before September 30, 2018.


Fire Station No. 6 Roof Replacement

Background and Project Scope
The existing tile roofing system servicing Fire Station No. 6 located at 11050 West Sunrise Blvd. has exceeded its useful life span and the building is experiencing roof leaks on a regular basis.  The existing tile roofing system will be replaced with a new tile roofing system.

Project Status
Construction of the replacement roofing system is approximately 100% complete and the project is closed out.


Jim Ward Community Center Roof Replacement

Background and Project Scope
The existing flat roofing system servicing Jim Ward Community Center located at 301 NW 46th Avenue has exceeded its useful life span and the building is experiencing roof leaks on a regular basis.  The existing built-up roofing system will be replaced with a new single ply roofing system.

Project Status
The project is currently out for public bidding with a scheduled bid opening date of September 11, 2018.


City-wide Storm Water Pipe Re-lining

Background and Project Scope
Existing City-owned and maintained storm water pipes serving City roadways throughout the City are reaching or have exceeded their useful life expectancy.  Roadway pavement failures above existing pipes and occurrence of location specific flooding are often-times attributed to pipe failures.  The Engineering and Public Works Departments work together to implement pipe replacement of rehabilitation throughout the City to combat these issues.  A cost-effective and time efficient means of addressing pipe failures is to re-line qualifying pipes with materials that rehabilitate pipe structural integrity, avoiding disruption of the roadway and minimizing traffic impacts.  Each year, the Engineering Department administers pipe relining in various locations throughout the City in coordination with the Public Works Department as part of the City’s Storm Water Management Program funded by the Storm Water Utility Fee.

Project Status
This is an on-going annually re-occurring project.  Currently, the Engineering Department is administering planned and emergency re-lining of over 3,000 linear feet of existing storm water pipes for FY2018.  Due to contractor scheduling, completion of work will extend into FY2019.
