Background Discussion
On September 25, 2012, the County approved the Master Agreement with McKim and Creed, Inc., of Clearwater, FL to provide Utility Architectural and Engineering Services. This Master Agreement was established for the purpose of retaining a Utility Engineer to provide design services as specific County projects occur throughout the term of the contract.

A Work Assignment was issued specific to the design requirements for a biological treatment unit at the Lake Manatee Water Treatment Plant and the costs and schedule associated with the project were negotiated as set forth in the attached Work Assignment agreement and approved by the Board of County Commissioners on October 22, 2014.

Change Order No. 1 to Work Assignment No. MC-07 adds additional engineering services that are needed for successful project implementation and for coordination between the Water Treatment Plant Biological Treatment Unit and the UF Conversion Project. Specifically, the County requested a design modification to the backwash storage pond subsequent to the 60% design submittal which required additional engineering services for piping, structural, electrical, instrumentation, and mechanical design modifications. The County requested that piping be installed to provide additional operational flexibility and reliability during the 90% review meeting. These services were not included in the original scope of services and are needed to complete the project design.
