Background Discussion

On April 30, 2012, the BCC executed a contract with SCS Engineers, Inc., to provide for the design of an enclosed structure and a generator set (Generator) which uses landfill gas from the Lena Road Landfill to produce electricity for the adjacent Southeast Water Reclamation Facility (SEWRF).

On December 11, 2012, the BCC executed an addendum with SCS Field Services to establish the Guaranteed Maximum Price in the amount of $3,918,644.00 for the construction of the project.

Upon completion of the construction, the Monitoring, Maintenance, and Operations Phase of the contract was to begin; however, during the testing of the Generator it was discovered that the existing Bio-Solids Dryer at the landfill prevented the Generator from running at maximum capacity. Modifications were necessary to run the Generator and the Bio-Solids Dryer simultaneously. The modifications took longer than expected; all the while the Generator was producing electricity for the SEWRF. This production of electricity has resulted in substantial savings to the County.

The proposed Amendment will compensate SCS Field Services in the amount of $122,299.84 for the electricity generated during the period of 12/13/2013 through 4/30/2014 at the rate provided by in the contract.  The payment is offset by the savings realized in the FPL bills for that period.
