The Sedimentation Basin Project consists of various structural concrete repairs, concrete surface preparation, concrete coating, mud valve replacement and incidental temporary removal and reinstallation of Trac – Vac ® system wall/floor mounting components within the sedimentation basin at the Jones Ferry Road Water Treatment Plant (WTP) in Carrboro, North Carolina. Replacement of damaged or inoperable wall/floor mounting will be handled through a contract allowance. The influent and effluent channel rehabilitation consisting of approximately 5,100 Square feet (SF), shall be rehabilitated only between the months of November through February. The affected section of the plant may be out of service for a maximum 12-week duration. The remaining 32,700 SF may be rehabilitated within the remaining contract period. The project is funded through a State Revolving Fund Loan which requires additional payment and change order approvals. It is anticipated that the work will be accomplished through one construction contract. The design firm’s most recent opinion of probable construction cost is $2,200,000.00. The Project scope is subject to change with State Approval. The project will require close coordination with the WTP. If the Applicant is a qualified coatings contractor, they may pre-qualify as the prime contractor for this project.
