Board approves construction contract for the repair of Pool 34
The Central Arizona Water Conservation District Board of Directors (CAWCD) convened on Thursday, Sept. 2, 2021 for its September 2021 Board meeting. CAWCD Board President Terry Goddard called the meeting to order with the majority of the Board Members in-person and the remainder participating virtually. The public was invited to watch via livestream and to provide public comment via the Board’s online “Blue Card.” The CAWCD Board Room will be closed to the public until at least November.
The Board heard a presentation and approved a Construction Contract for the Repair of Pool 34, Phase 1. This was to repair the damage created by significant rain events and stormwater accumulation from July 24-25 in the area of McClellan Wash. CAP Aqueduct Maintenance teams have already responded to address the areas of immediate concern on the canal embankment and have completed minor repairs to the dike. The remaining repair work is of a size that is best accomplished by an external construction contractor.
The Board also approved the following item that had been removed from the Consent Agenda for additional discussion:
- Amended agreement and notice of Municipal Provider Reporting Requirements and Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Pinnacle West Ranch, Phase One regarding membership in the Central Arizona Groundwater Replenishment District
On the consent agenda, the Board approved:
- Construction contract for elevator replacement project Phase 2
- Request for additional contract authority for construction contract for CO2 replacement at Waddell Pumping Plant
- Construction contract for soundproofing at Mark Wilmer Pumping Plant
- Construction contract for potable water project at Sandario Pumping Plant
- Contract for CISCO licenses and maintenance
