Budget/Fiscal Impact

The FY 2016-2021 Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) includes the Southside Interceptor Sewer Lining Project (UT-SN-03-29). Funding for the project is included in the approved Sewage Disposal System capital budget.

Project Description

This project consists of lining approximately 4,940 feet of 32-inch sanitary sewer and 4,950 feet of 42-inch sanitary sewer pipe within Huron River Drive beginning at Chalmers Drive and extending easterly along Thornoaks Drive, along the railroad right-of-way and terminating at Old Dixboro Road at the entrance to the wastewater treatment plant. In addition, the project will line 29 sanitary sewer manholes to aid in limiting stormwater infiltration into the sanitary sewer system. Lining is a trenchless technology which enables the pipe to be repaired without disturbing the surface above. The lining of this sanitary sewer is critical to extending the service life of these pipes. The project is expected to begin in July 2016.

Plans and specifications were advertised through BidNet. Three bids were received and opened on May 17, 2016. The lowest responsible bid, in the amount of $2,048,872.00 was $64,688.00 above the engineer's estimate. The Engineer's Estimate was based on similar bid prices that were more than four years old. In addition, access to portions of the sanitary sewer will require additional work by the contractor. Attached is a summary of the bids received for the project.

Ric-Man Construction, Inc. complies with the requirements of the non-discrimination and living wage ordinances.
