January 3, 2019, City Council Regular Meeting
27. Motion to Procure Upgrades to the DeRenne Avenue Stormwater Pump Station Electronic Controls from Kapsch TrafficCom North America (Event No. 6420)
Strategic Priority

Recommend approval to procure DeRenne Avenue Stormwater Pump Station Electronic Controls Upgrade from Kapsch TrafficCom North America in the amount of $462,834.00. The upgrade will be used by the Office of Capital Projects Management to replace and upgrade the station's master computer controllers. The master computer controllers control how much water the station pumps. 

The DeRenne Avenue Pump Station, located off DeRenne near the Truman Parkway, moves water down the Casey Canal, which drains much of midtown Savannah. The station has 11 pumps, capable of moving 858,000 gallons per minute. The facility prevented severe flooding during Hurricanes Matthew and Irma by pumping a combined total for both events of over 7 billion gallons of rainwater.

However, the station requires constant attention and monitoring by Stormwater staff to protect the City because of the facility's advanced age. The programmable logic controllers for the station are nearly 25 years old and require frequent repair. 

A DBE goal of 18% was established for this event.  Kapsch TrafficCom North America submitted DBE participation at the subcontractor level in the amount of 28.80% using Intellectual Concepts (1.90%) and Key Engineering Group (26.90%).
