Mount Prospect Public Works Department <br />INTEROFFICE MEMORANDUM <br />�M?/ <br />TO: VILLAGE MANAGER MICHAEL E. JANONIS <br />FROM: WATER & SEWER SUPERINTENDENT <br />DATE: FEBRUARY 4, 2014 <br />SUBJECT: PURCHASE OF STANDBY EMERGENCY GENERATOR STATION 11 <br />(CIP) — JOINT PURCHASE ($306,610) <br />Background <br />In the capital improvement program (CIP), there are funds available to provide diesel - <br />powered emergency generators for the Village's deep wells and pumping stations. The <br />deep wells and pumping stations are the Village's emergency water source in the event <br />that flow from the North West Suburban Municipal Joint Action Water Agency <br />(NSMJAWA) is disrupted. The generators installed as part of this program are designed <br />to power the entire booster station facility; including simultaneously running the deep <br />well and the booster pumps. <br />Presently diesel generators are installed at Stations 5 and 16 with the latest currently <br />being installed at Station 17. The current budget contains funds to purchase and install <br />an emergency generator at Booster Station 11. This will be the last generator <br />installation at the Booster Pumping Stations leaving Station 4 as the only station without <br />an emergency generator due to site space constraints. <br />With each generator, there will be a super critical muffler, a sound attenuated enclosure <br />to house the generator and an above - ground, fire - rated, 4,000 gallon concrete diesel <br />fuel storage tank. The physical size of these units (241 x 10'W x 8'H) makes it <br />impractical for the unit to be configured as a tow - behind portable and so the <br />specifications call for a permanent installation. <br />With the 2012 purchase, the Village used a joint purchasing arrangement with the <br />National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) to obtain the best competitive pricing. The <br />Village Code specifically provides that competitive bidding is not required when the <br />village, pursuant to its home rule powers, enters into a joint purchasing contract for <br />
