Policy Questions for Council Consideration:
Should the City award a water telemetry repair and replacement contract to S&B, Inc.?
The water system’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) PLC processor failed and had to be reinitialized. This is the centralized control for six reservoirs, five pump stations, and two altitude valves, and this is the first time the system failed which has expedited the need for replacement.
This agenda item would authorize the award of contract to S&B, Inc. as the system’s telemetry integrator for equipment, supplies, and software.
Reviews of the conditions of the telemetry system indicate that the system was subject to failure, and the system has reached the end of its useful life, and immediate replacement is required.
Staff recommends award of the contract to S&B, Inc.
