Meeting Date: 10/01/2013  
Subject:    Project Acceptance - Forest Green Water Main Phase 2
Presenter: Mark Palmer
Department: Public Works  

Information
Recommended Action
Approve and accept the work completed by Kar-Vel Construction Inc. for the Forest Green Phase 2 water main project.
Background
The City is in the process of replacing water lines in the Forest Green area which are composed of asbestos cement pipe and nearing the end of their useful life. Several main breaks have occurred and been repaired over the last few years. Replacing these pipes will prevent new failures associated with their continued deterioration.

The aggregate project design was completed by Parametrix in June 2011. Phase 1, completed in October 2012,  replaced approximately 2,300 feet of 12-inch asbestos cement water main pipe with 12-inch ductile iron pipe along Forest Green Boulevard with stubs into adjacent cul-de-sacs along the water main route from Shaw Road to Cherokee Boulevard. Additionally, service lines and fire hydrants were modified per design requirements.

In July 2012, Phase 2-Schedule "A" of the Forest Green Water Main Replacement project was awarded to Kar-Vel Construction. This phase of the project continued the replacement of approximately 2,765 feet of asbestos cement pipe with 4-8 inch ductile iron pipe and associated valving on the south side of Forest Green Boulevard and into five adjacent cul-de-sacs (see below for list) from Shaw Road to Alderbrook Ct. S. The existing water mains were abandoned, five hydrants were replaced, and the roadways were restored.  

The cul-de-sacs where construction occurred: 
1.  Forest Rim Ct S. 
2.  Forest Ridge Ct S. 
3.  Forest View Ct. S.
4.  Greenwood Ct. S.
5.  Alderbrook Ct. S.
