Manatee County Code of Laws
Change Order #2 provides for an additional $152,308.51 and 125 additional calendar days due to the need to change the intended pumps from centrifugal pumps to chopper pumps. The project intent was to use centrifugal pumps for recirculation of sludge in new aerobic digesters, but at startup the pumps became clogged very quickly. A purchase order has since been issued for the purchase of new chopper pumps to replace these centrifugal pumps.
At its meeting on October 21, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners executed Change Order #1 to the Agreement providing for an additional $195,190.29 and 65 additional calendar days due to emergency dewatering and sludge removal at the main plant, emergency dewatering at digester #4, and replacement of switchgear breakers.
At its meeting on November 5, 2013, the Board of County Commissioners executed an Agreement with RTD Construction, Inc., in the amount of $2,985,920.00 for digester modifications at the Southwest Water Reclamation Facility.
