EMERGENCY GENERATION BIDS

There is a need for an emergency generator at the raw pumping station. At this time electricity to the raw water pumping station is only fed from one direction. Electrical outages can be a problem since there is only one way for electricity to reach this location. In order to maintain water service to our residents, it is necessary to have emergency power available at this location. At this time there has only been one bid received on the project. Bids for the installation will be received at a later date. It is important to order the generator so it will be available for winter installation.

METHANE COLLECTION ENGINEERING

The methane collection equipment and appurtenances are worn out and need replacement. The compressors must be run in tandem, where one should suffice. The water/gas separators are terribly corroded. The piping had been patched with incompatible and flammable materials. Most valves no longer operate. The control switches often malfunction. This would be a redesign of this area and improve the above, and add ventilation and gad leak detection ( confined space area presently had no detection equipment.) Methane is a byproduct from anaerobic digestion. We use the methane as an alternative fuel for both the boiler and the Cat air blower. These repairs are necessary to meet EPA and Dept of Labor requirements. Ament Engineering had previous engineering projects for the Wastewater Plant including preliminary cost estimates for the replacement of this equipment.A motion was made by Thodos, seconded by D.
