PREVIOUS ACTION

On November 24, 1998, by Resolution No. 98-209, the City Council approved the certification of the Environmental Impact Report for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion with Discharge to Marsh Creek, CIP Project No. 592-5911.

On February 9, 1999, by Resolution 99-58, the City Council directed staff to proceed with the design of the tertiary sewage treatment plant expansion.

On March 9, 1999, by Resolution No. 99-72, the City Council adopted the Mitigation Monitoring Plan and Findings of Fact for the City of Brentwood Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion with Discharge to Marsh Creek and directed Staff to file a Notice of Determination (NOD) with the Contra Costa County Clerk's Office.

On March 23, 1999, by Resolution No. 99-77, the City Council approved the agreement between G.S. Dodson & Associates, Consulting Engineers, and the City of Brentwood to provide professional design services for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion.

On June 8, 1999, by Resolution No. 99-146, the City Council approved the agreement between Camp Dresser & McKee, Inc. and the City of Brentwood to provide value engineering services for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion Project including but not limited to reviews and design reports at the 10% and 50% design stage.

On December 14, 1999, by Resolution No. 99-255, the City Council approved the agreement between The Covello Group, Inc. and the City of Brentwood to provide Construction Management services for the Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion Project.

On April 25, 2000, by Resolution No. 2060, the City Council approved a resolution designating John Stevenson and Paul Eldredge as the City’s authorized representative to the State Water Resources Control Board’s State Revolving Fund Loan Program.

BACKGROUND

The Regional Water Quality Control Board discharge permit for the proposed Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion Project requires the City to install and operate a gauging station on Marsh Creek to monitor the flow rates in the creek.  These flow rates would be used to determine periods of high flow and would allow the plant operators to stop discharging effluent into the creek, which is a requirement of the City’s permit with the County Flood Control District.

The City has included the cost of the gauging station in the construction contract.  However, the agreement with the USGS needs to be executed now to allow the installation to proceed this summer.  The cost of the gauging station is $27,000, plus a contingency not to exceed 10% of the contract amount, and will be paid out of the Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion Project once a contract is awarded in June.

After the construction of the gauging station the City will need to enter into an operations and maintenance agreement with the USGS.  Staff will bring this agreement before the City Council for approval at the appropriate time.  Currently the City is negotiating with the County Flood Control to share in the operation costs of this gauging station and will be included in the aforementioned agreement.
