Executive Summary

 

Castle Rock Water is seeking Town Council approval of a construction contract (Attachment A) with Velocity Constructors, Inc. (Velocity) for the Well CR-81 Well Facility Project. Well CR-81 is an old alluvial (renewable water) well that is located near the new Parks Service Center at the end of Caprice Street (Attachment B) that staff has identified as a potential new source for renewable water in our existing system.  Castle Rock Water currently has thirteen alluvial wells in operation which provide approximately 0.8 million gallons per day of renewable water utilizing our native East Plum Creek water rights.  This project consists of constructing a new metering and control facility and transmission pipeline. Velocity submitted the lowest responsive bid for a total construction cost of $274,052. Staff also requests approval for a 10% Town-managed contingency of $27,405, for a total project authorization of $301,457.

 

Discussion

 

Based on the Water Resources Supply-Demand Model, the high population growth trend, and the last two summer water demand seasons, additional water supply is needed to keep pace with increased water demands and to firm supplies. 

 

AL-81 is an alluvial well that is not in service currently.  Recently, staff determined a viable and cost-effective solution to bring the well online if the inspection and testing results were favorable, which they were.  The well is located near the new Parks Service Center.  Older data suggests that the well may be able to produce 40 to 60 gallons per minute (gpm).  The inspection and testing included a well video to determine the type of cleaning needed and a pumping test.  The results of the well pumping test indicated that the well will produce approximately 45 gpm of alluvial water (renewable water) or 0.068 million gallons per day.

 

The original metering and control facilities for well CR-81 have been removed or are not operational.  This project will construct a new metering vault, electrical service, and transmission pipeline to move the water to the CR-1 Diversion site, see Attachment B.  CR Water staff will construct the new control cabinet and do the programmable logic controller (PLC) programming to integrate this facility into the Town’s supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system. 

 

The request for bids for the project was sent to six qualified contractors.  Bids were received by three contractors, as summarized in the table below.  The Engineer’s estimate was $315,000.  The low bid was received by Velocity and is considered a responsive bid.
