Title
Resolution to Approve the Purchase and Replacement of Carbon from Carbon Activated Corporation for Odor Control Units at the Wastewater Treatment Plant ($81,900.00)
Memorandum
Your approval is requested to authorize the purchase and replacement of carbon from Carbon Activated Corporation for the three odor control units at the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) at a cost of $81,900.00.

The City of Ann Arbor Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) has three Bay Products (now Enduro Composites) Hawk Radial Flow Odor Control Units that treat foul air in the Solids Handling Building (SHB).

Consequently, it needs to be replaced to ensure effective treatment of odors in the SHB and ongoing compliance with the terms of the MDEQ air quality permit.

WWTP and Procurement Office staffs developed ITB-4384 for the removal and replacement of carbon in the SHB odor control units. The work required under this bid includes the removal and proper off-site disposal of the existing carbon and replacement with carbon supplied by the bidder. Each unit contains approximately 345.4 cubic feet of high capacity carbon, and approximately 33,000 pounds will need to be supplied. Bidders were required to supply all labor and equipment necessary to complete the work.

* Jacobi Carbon, Inc. $98,750.00
* Doer Products $101,300.00
* Pure Air Filtration $181,700.00
