Sanitary sewer main increases size along E. Third Street

Pella — During last week's regular meeting, the Pella City Council approved a resolution for a Change Order on the E. Third Street Sanitary Sewer Project.

This resolution approves Change Order No. 2 with TK Concrete for the E. Third Street Sanitary Sewer Project in the amount of $14,659.55. As background, this project involves improvements on E. Third Street, between Peace and Independence, including: increasing existing sanitary sewer main from 12" to 21", replacement and additional storm sewer, installation of new 8" water main, new water and sanitary sewer services within the right-of-way, replacement of the street with 7" Portland Cement Concrete paving including both intersections, replacement of the 72" inch culvert for the street and 4' sidewalk replacement on both sides.

Details on the composition of Change Order No. 2 are:

-Removal of two old headwalls, hauling debris and reattaching an existing 15" storm sewer. In the past, this portion of E. Third was a rural area with an open ditch system. Headwalls provided additional support to keep the storm sewer pipe and road from moving or washing out. In this case, the original open ditch was tilled in and was completely eliminated many years ago, but the headwalls were never removed. Removal of the headwalls was important at this time to allow for the installation of the new 72" pipe and box culvert for increased capacity. Existence of these structures was unknown prior to construction: $10,034.56

-Removal and hauling of unexpected debris (railroad ties, brick, block, etc.) in the area of the old culvert: $2,312.94

-Upgrade of sanitary sewer services from planned 4" to 6" to match existing. This was due to a discrepancy between the plans based on the City records and what was actually found to be existing in the field. All sanitary sewer services were found to be 6" and not 4" pipe: $1,799.75

-Upgrade of water main service saddles from core blue to all brass: $512.30.The total addition to the contract for Change Order No. 2 is $14,659.55.
