Agenda Item Brief:

This contract is for professional engineering design services for final pipe segment identification, utility research, engineered drawings, bid item clarifications, and specifications.  Cured-in-place pipe is used to rehabilitate a sanitary sewer line that needs structural repair but does not require full pipe replacement.  


This project is intended to rehabilitate sanitary sewer mainline pipe that has been identified as experiencing degradation and structural defects.  Pipe assessments performed by the City of Sparks Public Works Maintenance Division are used to identify and prioritize pipe segments that require maintenance and possible rehabilitation.  The flow conveyed by the sanitary sewer system can be abrasive and corrosive, and over time this infrastructure will need to be maintained and/or rehabilitated as shown by the pipe assessments. Farr West Engineering and their knowledge of pipe assessment and cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) will be utilized to perform a final assessment and identify approximately 7,500 lineal feet of sanitary sewer mainline pipe, primarily southwest of McCarran Boulevard within the City of Sparks, to be rehabilitated.  The project was approved as a part of the FY21 Capital Improvements Plan.  

Farr West Engineering was selected to perform the engineering design due to their experience with similar sewer CIPP rehabilitation projects regionally along with having successfully completed the FY20 Stanford Way Sanitary Serwer CIPP Lining project. This contract is for professional engineering design services, and Farr West Engineering will review, analyze, and perform final design for the FY21 CIPP project. 
The proposal for design services from Farr West Engineers provides for a complete design, including analysis and engineered construction documents for project bidding, for the FY21 CIPP sewer system improvements.  The proposed fee is $93,000.00.

  1. City Council may approve the professional services contract as outlined by staff.
  2. City Council may reject the professional services contract and provide direction to the City Manager.

Recommended Motion:

I move to approve the professional services contract (AC-5741) with Farr West Engineers for engineering design of the FY21 Cured-in-Place Pipe Sewer Rehabilitation Project in the amount of $93,000.00.
