Twelve young Austinites have joined DSD’s Tree Team and will be working alongside staff to further the goals of Austin’s Urban Forest Plan. The interns represent 6 different council districts, 7 local high schools, and 3 colleges. They were chosen from among 40 applicants who applied to the first year of the program through a hiring process that included a written application and in-person interview. Interested in connecting with the Youth Forest Council interns further? Email youthforestcouncil@austintexas.gov to join an email list for their future events. February 2020

AMOUNT AND SOURCE OF FUNDING Funding is available in the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Capital Budget of Austin Water.

Purchasing Language: Prior Council Action: Boards and Commission Action: MBE/WBE: Contract Amendment December 7, 2017 – Council approved the original contract which included phases I-III, item 41, on a 9-0 vote with Council Members Garza and Troxclair absent. February 12, 2020 - To be reviewed by the Water and Wastewater Commission. This contract was awarded in compliance with City Chapter 2-9C Minority Owned and Women Owned Business Enterprise Program. Current participation to date is 12.20% MBE and 1.88% WBE. The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project will replace analog customer water meters with electronic water meters connected to a wireless network, so that meter reads will no longer be collected manually every month. After AMI implementation, water meter reads will be collected at least daily. This data will be made available to customers via electronic devices, so they can better monitor their water usage between billing cycles. Electronic water meters will improve data collection by reducing meter re-reads and providing more frequent data collection while minimizing the man-hours and vehicle mileage currently needed to support the manual meter reading contract. Near real-time AMI data will be made available to customers via smartphones, desktop computers, etc. as they use water during the billing cycle. Other potential benefits include improving customer service and satisfaction, enabling customer usage alerts before a bill arrives, and identifying potential customer-side leaks. This data will also enable Austin Water to have better system diagnostic tools, such as leak detection. Additionally, this project will produce a superior metering asset management database that will better facilitate operations and maintenance activities. Although meter reads will be collected more frequently, the city’s existing multi-service billing process through its Customer Care and Billing system will remain and continue to …

AMOUNT AND SOURCE OF FUNDING Funding is available in the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Capital Budget of Austin Water. Purchasing Language: Lower responsive bid of two bids received through a competitive Invitation For Bid solicitation. Prior Council Action: N/A Boards and Commission Action: February 12, 2020 – To be reviewed by the Water & Wastewater Commission. MBE/WBE: This contract will be awarded in compliance with City Code Chapter 2- 9A (Minority Owned and Women Owned Business Enterprise Procurement Program) by meeting the goals with 30.96% MBE and 1.56% WBE participation. Originally constructed in 1913, the North Austin Reservoir at 5802 North Lamar Blvd, is one of the oldest water facilities in Austin’s water distribution system. Over the years, the facility sites such as the existing 10 million-gallon (MG) reservoir, the on- site pump station, and the booster pump station located across Koenig Ln have undergone several renovations, including construction and overhaul of the pumping facilities. During a 2011 condition assessment and reservoir evaluation, it was determined that the reservoir and pump station have greatly exceeded their expected useful life. Many of the critical mechanical, electrical, and structural assets at the North Austin Reservoir and Pump Station were identified to be in poor to very poor condition. Austin Water intends to decommission the existing water reservoir and construct a new North Zone pump station and ground storage reservoir on the existing site. The new facility complex will include a new ground storage tank and a Central Zone to North Zone pump station designed to current industry and utility standards. The work includes demolition of the existing 10-MG ground storage reservoir, concrete vaults, and piping and construction of a new 8-MG concrete tank, 50-million gallon per day capacity pump station, and pump station electrical building. Electrical and instrumentation work includes a new Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system with top end programming and modifications, audio tower/monopole installation, and an access control and security system.
