Background Discussion

November 21, 2011, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved a contract with Siemens Industry, Inc., in the amount of $2,505,000 for the first year for the provision of 24-hour maintenance and emergency response for odor and corrosion control services for approximately 100 equipment applications installed in the County's waste water systems.  Pursuant to the contract, the contractor furnishes all necessary personnel, materials, supplies, and transportation; including assistance with evaluating and diagnosing odor complaints and related odor issues and cost estimating to establish objectives and monitoring programs to minimize odor and corrosion.

Since the inception of this Agreement, the following amendments have been executed to continue the aforementioned services:

  • Amendment 1: First renewal -  $2,459,480 estimated
  • Amendment 2: Assignment  from Siemens Industry Inc. to  Siemens Water Technologies, LLC, a subsidiary of Siemens Industry, Inc., and one year renewal estimated at $2,305,240
  • Amendment 3: Novation of name change to Evoqua Water Technologies, LLC
  • Amendment 4:  one year renewal, estimated at $2,278,480.

Amendment 5 extends the contract term for one year commencing November 21, 2015. There are no renewal options remaining.

The increase from Fiscal Year 2015 to this current and final renewal period is attributed to the addition of several new lift stations within our system that require the odor and control chemical treatments.
