Recommend And Design The Expansion Of The City’s Treated Wastewater Effluent Spray Irrigation System

REQUEST FOR STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS AND PORPOSAL: RECOMMEND AND DESIGN THE EXPANSION OF THE CITY’S TREATED WASTEWATER EFFLUENT SPRAY IRRIGATION SYSTEM COTTAGE GROVE, OR Proposals due: February 28, 2017 @ 2:00 pm The City of Cottage Grove, Oregon is seeking statements of qualifications and proposals from licensed, professional engineering firms to recommend and design the expansion of the City’s treated wastewater effluent spray irrigation system. Currently, the City sprays treated wastewater effluent, via an existing irrigation system, to the City-owned Middlefield Golf Course (76 acres) and an adjacent Cottage Grove Hospital parcel (10 acres) during the regulated summer irrigation season. Middlefield Golf Course and the Cottage Grove Hospital currently utilize approximately 350,000 to 450,000 gallons of treated effluent per day between June 15th and September 15th of each year. This is about one-half of the total effluent produced daily during the summer months. In June, 2010 Murray, Smith, and Associates (MSA) completed a Water Reuse Feasibility Study for the City of Cottage Grove. MSA determined that the City needed 110 acres of land to dispose of 100% of the treated effluent that is produced each summer. Middlefield Golf Course and the Cottage Grove Hospital have 86 combined acres of land available for the application of treated effluent. The MSA study recommended additional sites for treated effluent disposal including, but not limited to, Bohemia Park, Western Oregon Exposition (WOE) Fairgrounds, Trailhead Park, Cottage Grove Disc Golf Course, and the Interstate 5, Exit 174 punchbowls. The successful firm will recommend, design, and provide construction cost estimates for the following facilities: 1. A storage system to hold a sufficient amount of treated effluent for conveyance to multiple sites. 2. All necessary piping sized to move treated effluent to the various chosen locations. 3. All pumps, motors, booster pumps, and filters necessary, sized to move treated effluent to the chosen locations. 4. All power requirements, including back-up power where necessary and feasible. 5. A programmable, automatic control system that will move treated effluent from the storage facility to various locations based on balance, time, and quantity. City’s Integrator of Record is The Automation Group (TAG), Eugene, Oregon. 6. An irrigation system at each chosen site to spray treated effluent in an efficient manner that works in concert with the automatic control system listed in Number 5 above. 7. Appropriate amendments to the City’s Water Reuse Agreement Plan to include all chosen locations. 8. All Federal, State, and Local permits necessary to allow the system to function. Statements of Qualifications and Proposals should be submitted to: City of Cottage Grove, Attention: Public Works Department, 400 East Main Street, Cottage Grove, OR 97424 no later than 4:00 pm, Tuesday, February 28, 2017.
