JANUARY 17, 2006 REPAIR OF FOUR STORM DRAINS JANUARY 17, 2006 REPAIR OF FOUR STORM DRAINS



TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL

FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS

DATE: JANUARY 17, 2006

SUBJECT: REPAIR OF FOUR STORM DRAINS

RECOMMENDATION

Review and reconfirm by a four/fifths (4/5) vote, the Council’s previous action on November 15, 2005 to authorize staff to conduct an informal bid process to repair storm drains on Palos Verdes Drive South, Silver Arrow, Crest Road and Pontevedra.

BACKGROUND

On November 15, 2005, the City Council found that an emergency exists concerning the repair of four Storm Drains. This emergency situation will not permit a delay resulting from a competitive solicitation for bids to line the existing pipes.

DISCUSSION

Approval of both the informal bid process, the pre-ordering of materials and the negotiation and execution of the construction contract change order with SANCON Technologies, Inc., and the expenditure of the $459,700 for this work required a four-fifths (4/5) vote of the Council under Public Contract Code Section 22050(a)(1).

In addition, Public Contract Code Section 22050(c)(1) requires that when a governing body takes action under Section 22050(a)(1), it must review that action and reaffirm it by a four-fifths vote at each subsequent regularly scheduled meeting until the action is terminated. Accordingly, because the repair has not yet been completed, staff has placed this item on tonight’s agenda. This item will be placed on each subsequent agenda until the project is completed.

CURRENT STATUS

The Contractor has completed his work on the storm drainpipe under Palos Verdes Drive South and Seacove Drive. The liners have been installed and manhole constructed.

Lining the Pontevedra storm drain line will be performed following completion of the tunneling that is currently underway to remove the failed storm drain pipe. The lining work could be completed by January 13. The rehabilitation of the Pontevedra storm drain pipe is being performed under a separate contract. Staff anticipates the rehabilitation work and the lining will be completed by January 20, 2006.

Repairs to the Silver Arrow storm drain line that runs from Silver Arrow to Hawthorne Blvd. (north of Silver Spur) are complete and the manhole has been constructed. The liner is to be installed as indicated below.

Repairs to the invert of the Crest Road storm drain line have been completed. The liner is to be installed as indicated below.

Week Activity
January 9 Install liner from Pontevedra Drive to Western Ave.
Install liner for Silver Arrow storm drain.
Install liner for Crest Road storm drain.

All work associated with these emergency repairs to the four storm drains should be completed by January 20, 2006.

Respectfully submitted:

Ray Holland
Interim Director of Public Works
