Background Discussion

On November 21, 2011, the Board of County Commissioners approved a contract with Siemens Industry, Inc., for the annual provision of 24-hour maintenance and emergency response (odor and corrosion control) services to approximately 100 equipment applications installed at the County's sewer lift stations and waste water systems. The contractor will furnish all necessary personnel, materials, supplies, and transportation to accomplish the odor and corrosion control services, and evaluate related wastewater treatment plant issues and costs to establish objectives and monitoring programs to minimize odor and corrosion at the utilities systems.

The initial contract approval provided for a one year initial term with four, optional one year renewal periods. This is the second of the four optional renewals.

On July 1, 2013, Siemens Water Technologies, LLC, a subsidiary of Siemens Industry, Inc., assumed all Siemens Industry, Inc., rights and obligations under this Agreement. All future billings and correspondence will be addressed to Siemens Water Technologies, LLC.
