This agreement sets forth terms and conditions between the City of Reno, the City of Sparks, and Washoe County for reimbursement to the City of Reno for construction costs associated with extension of an effluent pipeline located within the SouthEast Connector Phase 2 at the Mira Loma Drive intersection. Staff recommends approval.
The City of Reno has entered into an agreement with the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) for inclusion of an effluent pipeline extension in the South East Connector Phase 2 project in the amount of $675,000. The effluent pipeline extension crosses Mira Loma Drive within the South East Connector alignment, and will extend to south of Heron’s Pond. This pipeline would ultimately be a component of a larger project providing a connection between the Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility (TMWRF) and South Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility (STMWRF). The parties to the agreement (Reno, Sparks, and Washoe County) have collectively identified future regional benefits of a connection between the reclaimed effluent systems of these two facilities, and have also identified benefits to constructing this portion of the pipeline early with the RTC’s SouthEast Connector Phase 2 Construction Project.
This portion of the pipeline project is a technically challenging area due to crossing of a major roadway (Mira Loma) and wetlands associated with Heron’s Pond. The RTC has expended a large amount of resources in securing permitting for the SouthEast Connector Phase 2 project, which this pipeline crossing will be able to take benefit from. The work associated with this pipeline consists of approximately 1,600 linear feet of 24-inch ductile iron pipe, and will be completed in the fall of 2016.
Installation of this section of effluent pipeline as part of the SouthEast Connector Phase 2 project provides several current and future benefits. The City of Reno will be solely responsible for the design, construction, inspection, and maintenance of this effluent pipeline extension under a separate agreement with the RTC.
1. City Council could approve the agreement as outlined by Staff.
2. City Council could reject the agreement and provide direction to the City Manager.
I move to approve Interlocal Agreement AC-5243 between the City of Reno, the City of Sparks and Washoe County regarding reimbursement in the amount of $225,000 to the City of Reno for the installation of certain effluent facilities.
