Authorize bid solicitation and contracting with the lowest responsive and responsible bidder for construction of the North Jantzen West of N Pavilion Ave Water Main Improvement Project for an estimated cost of $1,326,698


The City of Portland ordains:

Section 1.  The Council finds:

  1. The existing water main along North Jantzen Avenue on Hayden Island is of substandard material and was installed by the Jantzen Beach Water Company prior to being owned by the Portland Water Bureau.
  2. The Portland Water Bureau has responded to multiple leaks on water services connected to this main and the repair of these leaks resulted in shutdowns to large businesses in the area.
  3. This main is located in an area identified to have high liquefaction potential during a seismic event and will be replaced with earthquake resistant ductile iron pipe.
  4. Through the North Jantzen West of N Pavilion Avenue Water Main Improvement Project (Project), the Portland Water Bureau will replace approximately 2,200 feet of pipe and install new fire hydrants and water services. Replacement of the main and service work will reduce breaks and outages, make the water system more resilient in an earthquake, protect the water system from contaminants from backflow, and improve water flow and supply to fight fires.
  5. The Project has been planned and located in accordance with appropriate engineering standards for the construction, maintenance, and improvement of the City’s water infrastructure. The solicitation for the procurement action for the construction will use the City’s standard construction procurement bid process.
  6. The engineer’s estimate for the contract action is $1,326,698. Funding for this Project, with budgeted contingency, will be requested in the FY 2022-23 Budget.

NOW, THEREFORE, the Council directs:

  1. That City Procurement Office is authorized to bid the solicitation for construction of the North Jantzen West of N Pavilion Avenue Water Main Improvement Project.
  2. Upon the Council’s acceptance of the Chief Procurement Officer’s Report to Council recommending the lowest responsible bidder, the Chief Procurement Officer is authorized to negotiate and execute a contract, provided the contract has been approved as to form by the City Attorney’s Office.
  3. As required, a post-project evaluation of the Project will be provided to the Chief Procurement Officer in order to request and authorize final payment to the contract.
  4. The Mayor and Auditor are hereby authorized to draw and deliver checks chargeable to the Water Fund when demand is presented and approved by the proper authorities.

An ordinance when passed by the Council shall be signed by the Auditor. It shall be carefully filed and preserved in the custody of the Auditor (City Charter Chapter 2 Article 1 Section 2-122)
