Abstract:Fulton County has the desire to become compliant with CMOM (Capacity, Maintenance, Operation and Management) guidelines as now envisioned and desired by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD). This caused Fulton County to embark on a 100 million I/I reduction program over a 10 year period to repair and improve it's collection system as an important element of CMOM,with the foremost goal to reduce sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs). Fulton County's collection system contains approximately 2,000 miles of gravity sanitary sewer lines, serving approximately 130,000 customers. This ambitious program allows the expenditures of roughly 10 per foot or 6.50 per customer per year.
To optimize the money spent on actual repairs versus money spend for studies, engineering and administration, Fulton County selected the design build method of project delivery. The teams will be selected based on the Request for Proposals methodology that allows selection based on best value as compared to low bid. The selection criteria considered the proposed method to identify the most promising repairs, the unit costs for various repairs and the total cost for engineering services.
