Council action to issue purchase order.


This project is for the performance of work required to replace the protective coating systems of Filter No. 12 and appurtenances at the Courtney Bend Water Treatment Plant. These systems, which protect the steel structures from corrosion and damage, have reached the end of their effective life and replacement is necessary. New protective coating systems are expected to provide corrosion protection for approximately fifteen years after installation. Filter No. 12 is an integral part of the Courtney Bend Water Treatment Plant’s operation, providing necessary capacity in the water treatment process. The four lines associated with the bid pertain to surface preparation and a new coating system to the interior, exterior, handrail, staircase and catwalks for Filter No. 12
