Agenda Item Brief: Background:
City staff is asking the City Council to approve the purchase of replacement parts for a raw sewage pump at TMWRF from Nevada Seal and Pump in the amount of $157,945.
The Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility utilizes four raw sewage pumps to convey the incoming wastewater to the grit facility. These pumps were installed in 1992 and are showing extensive wear on the volute and base due to normal operation. Raw Sewage Pump Number 4’s volute and base were replaced in late 2014. These same components were replaced on Raw Sewage Pump Number 3 in 2017. This purchase will address the replacement of the pump's volute and base of Raw Sewage Pump Number 1. Replacing these pump components increases the pump’s efficiency and reliability while lowering the power demand.
Because the pump parts are proprietary they can only be purchased through the factory authorized representative, Nevada Seal and Pump. The attached quote includes the freight from the factory to TMWRF.
- The City Council could approve the purchase as presented by staff.
- The City Council could reject the purchase and provide direction to the City Manager.
I move to approve the purchase of replacement parts for Raw Sewage Pump Number 1 at the Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility (TMWRF) from Nevada Seal and Pump in an amount not to exceed $157,945.
