Sewer System Maintenance Proposal Receives Approval from Albany Utilities Board
Albany, Ga-(April 11, 2019) The Albany Utilities Board vote sends the proposal to provide maintenance and operation of the City of Albany’s Wastewater Treatment Plant and pumping stations to City Commissioners for final approval.
The proposal was submitted by ESG Operations Incorporated, a company out of Macon, Georgia that successfully operates multiple systems of similar size and scope as Albany’s. The total cost for the first year is $1,719,240.00.
The scope of work includes preventive and corrective maintenance at the City’s Joshua Street Wastewater Treatment Plant along with the operation and maintenance of 108 pump stations. The scope also includes sanitary station overflow prevention and station specific emergency operations plans in the event of station failure. ESG would also electronically monitor the Sewer System 24/7 for immediate response to system station alerts. Also, included in the contract proposal, is a Vactor truck with an operator who would be dedicated solely to the treatment plant and pumping stations. The total proposed staff includes 16 full-time employees.
This will be a five-year contract with an option to renew in four years for an additional five-year term. The contract proposal will be presented to City Commissioners at the next board meeting.
