Memorandum
This memorandum and resolution requests approval to award a construction contract to Monroe Plumbing and Heating Company for the Sodium Hypochlorite Storage Tank Replacement ($640,980.00).

The City of Ann Arbor (City) Water Treatment Plant (WTP) uses combined chlorine, of mixture of sodium hypochlorite and ammonia, for the purpose of maintaining a disinfectant residual throughout the water distribution system. Sodium hypochlorite is stored in bulk in two (2) 11,000 gallon tanks. One (1) tank has had prolonged durations of being out-of-service due to leaks and the other is reaching the end of its service life.

This project is programmed in the City's Capital Improvements Plan (UT-WS-24-01).
