Background Discussion
On October 2, 2012, the County approved the Master Agreement with CH2M HILL Engineers, Inc., of Tampa, FL, to provide Utility Architectural / Engineering Services. This Master Agreement was established for the purpose of retaining an engineering firm to perform, on an as required basis, all of the professional services necessary for architectural / engineering projects for Manatee County.

On December 26, 2014, Work Assignment No. 8 was issued to provide design, permitting, and bidding phase services for the implementation of a recharge well for reclaimed water disposal during wet weather events at the Southwest Water Reclamation Facility for a total amount of $369,827.00. The specific intent was to maximize wet weather disposal capacity in the most efficient and least costly manner. 

Once design and permitting was completed it was determined to move forward with drilling of the Recharge Well. A bid package was subsequently completed for the piping, wellhead, and chemical facilities to solicit a contractor to complete this project.  

On September 21, 2015, Change Order No. 1 to Work Assignment No. 8 was approved by the County to provide services during construction and regulatory assistance for the vertical drilling portion of the recharge well project in the amount of $629,995.00 for a revised total amount of $999,822.00.

Change Order No. 2 to Work Assignment No. 8 adds services during construction for the infrastructure associated with recharge well transmission piping, the wellhead, and chemical facility. Services also include commissioning, training, and testing as well as the production of an Operation and Maintenance manual for the recharge well and ammonia chemical facility. Also included in this Change Order No. 2 is the development and construction oversight of an acidization plan for the Cortez Road Injection Well.
