Pursuant to the 2014 Congressional appropriations bill for the Safe Drinking Water programs, none of the financing Proceeds may be used for any part of the Project unless all of the iron and steel products used in the Project are produced in the United States. “Iron and steel products” means the following products made primarily of iron or steel: lined or unlined pipes and fittings, manhole covers and other municipal castings, hydrants, tanks, flanges, pipe clamps and restraints, valves, structural steel, reinforced precast concrete, and construction materials. The Reservoir No. 3 Landslide Remediation and Seismic Upgrades project generally consists of the construction of a foundation expansion, including anchor bolts and chairs, and reservoir improvements to Reservoir No. 3, as well as water distribution system and reservoir site improvements necessary to prepare the system to allow Reservoir No. 3 to be taken offline for seismic and reservoir upgrades. Work associated with the proposed improvements has been divided into three schedules for convenience of design and construction only; all work for all schedules will be bid and award as a single contract.
In general, Schedule A consists of site work required to prepare the site for construction, excavate and stabilize the slope behind the reservoir in advance of foundation improvements, and restore the site to its final condition after the foundation improvements have been completed. Work includes, but is not limited to site preparation, site restoration, removal of rock buttress, design and construction of soil nail slope stabilization, all other work required for landslide remediation and slope stabilization, and all other site and utility work not included in other schedules.
Schedule B generally consists of distribution system improvements, including on-site and off-site distribution piping, intertie and pressure reducing station improvements, and pump station improvements that are necessary to facilitate taking the reservoir offline for construction of the reservoir improvements. Work includes, but is not limited to construction of electrical, control and mechanical upgrades at the Transfer Pump Station at Reservoir No. 3 site, construction of approximately 640 lineal feet of 10-inch restrained joint ductile iron water main between the Reservoir No. 3 and Reservoirs No. 1 and 2 site to replace the existing asbestos cement (AC) water main (work requires removal and disposal of AC pipe by Oregon Department of Environmental Quality licensed asbestos abatement contractors and certified asbestos workers); construction of two packaged pressure reducing valve (PRV) stations located in the vicinity of SW Childs Road and Bryant Road, and the vicinity of Centerwood Street and Arrowwood Avenue, installation of new isolation valve at Reservoir No. 1, installation of new isolation valve at SW Childs Road and 35th Place. Schedule B will also include all distribution system and pump station startup, testing, and commissioning.
Schedule C generally consists of the reservoir improvements, including foundation improvements for seismic upgrade, reservoir mechanical improvements, and reservoir coatings and cathodic protection. Work includes, but is not limited to construction of foundation extension for Reservoir No. 3 including anchor bolts and chairs, reservoir yard and internal piping modifications, expansion joints, electronically actuated valve and seismic control system, installation of an impressed current cathodic protection system in Reservoir No. 3, installation of new overcoat on exterior of Reservoir No. 3, and inspection and recoat of select areas of the interior of Reservoir No. 3.
Reservoir No. 3 is the only storage tank supplying the lower (and largest) pressure zone within the District’s water system. Construction of the work will special sequencing to ensure that Reservoir No. 3 remains operational at all times until such time as the distribution system improvements (Schedule B) have been completed.
