City Council Regular Meeting
Meeting Date: 08/09/2022  

BACKGROUND
The Corbett Elevated Storage Tank serves approximately 2,300 water connections (a population of approximately 5,800). The addition of the proposed 3.0 million gallon Corbett Ground Storage Tank will provide critical storage and redundancy at the Corbett Tank Site in order to provide water to customers on a daily basis and to a larger portion of the City in an emergency situation. 

The Corbett Tank Site is one of two SSLGC connection points which provide continual water flow to the southern water zone. In addition to the construction of a new ground storage tank, a pump station will be installed to feed the southern water zone through the existing elevated tank on site and to pump water to the Live Oak Tank Site. A generator will be added which will allow all of the pumps to operate during an electrical outage as experienced during the severe Winter Storm in Texas during February 12-19, 2021.

Bids for the Corbett Ground Storage Tank Project were opened on June 2, 2022.  Five bids were received.  Of the five bids, the lowest bid was from Pesado Construction Co., Inc.  Staff has reviewed the bids and supporting documentation and determined that the bid from Pesado Construction Co., Inc. is acceptable.
