Body

SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:

Upgrade of the flocculation and treatment basins of the Collins Water Treatment Plant will be completed in two phases with the first phase being the upgrade of Basins 5 and 6 (East Plant) followed by the second phase with the upgrade of Basins 1 through 4 (West Plant).  The initial upgrade of Basins 5 and 6 has an Ohio EPA Director approved completion date of April 30, 2021.  The work includes replacement of flocculation, sludge collection, carbon dioxide feed equipment; basin repairs; and new piping, flow metering, valves, outlet weirs, structures, and conduits.  To finance construction of the project, the Division of Water Treatment desires to secure funding from the OWDA Fresh Water Loan Program.  Prior to loan approval, the OWDA requires an ordinance be passed authorizing the loan application, acceptance, and the execution of agreement as well as designating a dedicated repayment source for the loan funds.
