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 when needed. Generator design is proposed to run all of the pumps during an electrical outage.

The ground storage tank and pump station is a project identified in the City's current Impact Fee Capital Improvement Plan.  The Corbett Ground Storage Tank Project was bid and $7,730,818.70 (lowest responsible bid plus contingency) is needed to fully fund construction.  Appropriation funding via the award of $3,500,000 from the Fiscal Year 2022 Federal Omnibus Legislation has been secured for a portion of the project.  Proposed Ordinance 22-T-34 allocates $4,230,818.70 from Water Capital Recovery Fees to provide the remainder of funding needed to construct the proposed Corbett Ground Storage Tank, pump station, and generator.

Council approved this in firs reading at their meeting of August 2, 2022.
