SUBJECT:

Title

Approval of a contract amendment with Doucet and Associates for engineering design and bid support services for a stormwater treatment basin to be included as part of the Elizabeth Ave Realignment project.

 

Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

The City of New Braunfels’ 2020 and 2021 Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan (EAHCP) Workplan includes engineering design for a stormwater treatment basin to be constructed as part of the City’s Elizabeth Avenue Realignment project. This project is intended to help fulfill the water quality protection requirements set forth in the EAHCP. Funding for the design of the stormwater treatment facility has been approved by the EAHCP Implementing Committee and is available to the City to cover costs associated with engineering design in 2020 and 2021. Funding has also been approved by the EAHCP Implementing Committee to cover construction costs for the stormwater treatment basin in 2021.

 

The City issued Task Order 20-021 on August 26, 2020 to request Statement of Qualifications from firms included on the Indefinite Delivery and Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) list under the Stormwater Engineering and Civil Engineering categories to perform engineering design work for the project. Doucet and Associates was selected to perform engineering design services for the project based upon relevant work experience and qualifications and was awarded a contract/ Professional Service Agreement in October 2020 in the amount of $24,800.

 

Due to considerations regarding existing utility layouts and revisions to the adjacent Elizabeth Ave Realignment project, there is a need to re-design elements of the stormwater treatment basin. The re-design work is expected to cost approximately $6,000 which would necessitate the need to increase the contract amount to $30,800.
