VOGT, P.E., DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS/CITY ENGINEER SUBJECT: PROCUREMENT OF MOSCAD TELEMETRY SYSTEMS FOR CARBON CANYON BOOSTER/RESERVOIR AND CHINO AVENUE BOOSTER/RESERVOIR RECOMMENDATION: 1. Approve documents for Request for Qualifications and Quotations, and specifications, to install MOSCAD telemetry systems at the Carbon Canyon Booster Station (B-6), the Carbon Canyon Reservoir (R-2), the Chino Avenue Booster Station (B-4), and the Chino Avenue Reservoir (R-12). 2. Authorize the advertisement for price quotation to install MOSCAD telemetry systems. DISCUSSION/JUSTIFICATION: The Carbon Canyon Booster Station (B-6) and the Carbon Canyon Reservoir (R-2) are located at 2417 Turquoise Circle and Carbon Canyon Road north off Fetlock Lane in Carbon Canyon, respectively. The domestic water in the Carbon Canyon area is pumped through Booster Station #6 (B-6) to Reservoir #2 (R-2) then, distributed to the users in the Canyon. It is very important to keep these telemetry systems functional so that the pressure and water demand in the Canyon can be monitored and maintained. The current telemetry systems at B-6 and R-2 are MEIC 1000, and INTRAC 2000, respectively. The MEIC 1000 system is an old system and there is no technological support and no parts available in today's market for MEIC 1000. The INTRAC 2000 is manufactured by Motorola Inc. and is no longer supported. A new system, MOSCAD, will replace INTRAC 2000. 0 CITY MANAGER/CITY COUNCIL NOVEMBER 8, 1994 AGENDA DATE: NOVEMBER 22, 1994 PAGE TWO SUBJECT: PROCUREMENT OF MOSCAD TELEMETRY SYSTEMS FOR CARBON CANYON BOOSTER/RESERVOIR AND CHINO AVENUE BOOSTER/RESERVOIR The MEIC 1000 system collapsed on October 15, 1994 and is no longer functioning. The repair of telemetry system at B-6 is imperative. Since the parts for the MEIC 1000 are not available, a brand new system must be installed. The City is in a process of converting its telemetry system to the newer system, MOSCAD. It is recommended that the telemetry system at B-6 be replaced by MOSCAD. The change will include a MOSCAD system at R-2 so that the telemetry signals will be able to communicate between B-6 and R-2. The Chino Avenue Booster Station (B-4) and the Chino Avenue Reservoir (R-12) are located at 13523 Calle San Marcos and at the end of Miramonte Court, respectively. Operation of B- 4 is controlled by the levels of R-12. The B-4 system supports about 1/3 of the City's domestic water demand, and major water facilities west of Peyton Drive. Its operation has great impact to the City domestic water system. The current telemetry system at B-4 is similar to B-6, an old MEIC 1000 at B-4 and INTRAC 2000 at R-12. Because MEIC 1000 is not functional, the system has been operated manually instead of automatically by telemetry. Therefore, it is recommended that the telemetry system of the B-4 system shall be replaced with MOSCAD. The procurement shall include: 1)removal of the existing telemetry systems from the site; 2) furnishing and installation of MOSCAD hardware system at four locations; 3) furnishing, installation, and setup of MOSCAD application software at four locations; 4) completion of onsite electrical connection; 5) completion of connection of the telemetry communication system to the City's Yard main system; and 6) providing training for a minimum of 40 working hours for MOSCAD operations. The replacement of the telemetry systems at the four locations is considered as a combination of the system maintenance and installation of the new telemetry system. Therefore, the project will be subdivided into two parts: 25% as system maintenance and 75% as Capital Improvement for telemetry system. The total cost is estimated to be $40,000. The budget is available in Water Fund: account #500-8110-888-5235 for system maintenance and account #500-8110-888-8070 Capital Outlay for field equipment.
