Storm Drain Improvements for Walnut Boulevard

PREVIOUS ACTIONS:

On May 11, 1999, the City Council awarded the contract to RGW, Inc. for the construction improvements for Walnut Boulevard Extension, CIP Project No. 336-3051.

RECOMMENDED COUNCIL ACTION:

Passage of a Resolution awarding the contract for the construction of near-term storm drain improvements for Walnut Boulevard Extension Project, Capital Improvement Project Number 336-3051, to Delta Excavating, Inc., authorizing the City Engineer to execute the agreement and necessary documents in the amount of $39,858.35, and granting the City Engineer authority to execute change orders up to 10% of the contract amount.

COMMENTS:

On January 24, 2000, the new extension of Walnut Boulevard experienced flooding at one drainage inlet. The City’s Maintenance crews cleared out debris from an earthen ditch north of Central Boulevard, which alleviated the ponding. However, the rainfall was not from a high intensity storm; therefore, the City Engineer determined that it would not be prudent to wait for this summer’s Walnut Boulevard Storm Drain Project, which will install a storm drain pipe in lieu of the earth ditch and lower the existing storm drain outlet into Marsh Creek.

In order to mitigate the flooding concerns of this winter, the Engineering Department initiated a $20,000 purchase order to Delta Excavating, Inc. in order to widen and lower the existing earth ditch. The work has been performed, and no flooding has since occurred. However, during the process of this project, the City determined that additional items of work, outside the original scope, such as providing a new culvert under the ECCID irrigation main and lowering an existing culvert for an agriculture crossing of the ditch, must be performed by Delta Excavating. Therefore, the Engineering Department is requesting that the Council approve the contract to Delta Excavating, Inc. for $39,858.35
