PROJECT BACKGROUND
The City of Waupaca Wastewater Treatment Facility is located at 325 S. Oborn
Street in the City of Waupaca. The 8000 building tank to be rehabilitated is a fixed
concrete cover digester, which is utilized for sludge transfer, primarily to hold and
transfer FOG waste. The tank is rectangular in shape with two separate square
shaped truncated pyramid hoppers. Internal dimensions of the tank are 17 feet
wide and 34 feet long, with 12 feet side water depth from the cover to the top of
hoppers. The truncated pyramid shaped hoppers are 7 feet deep. Total volume of
tank including the hoppers is 8,280 cubic feet. The tank walls are 18” thick
composed of 12” thick concrete, 2” thick cork insulation, and 4” thick face brick. The
tank roof is a fixed concrete cover that has a 4’ diameter Envirex/P.F.T gas collection
dome centered over the southern half of the tank and a 24” Varec Fig. 220 access
hatch centered over the northern half of the tank. The tank is enclosed within a
brick building.

The physical condition of the concrete tank is acceptable. The internal sludge and
gas piping has corroded and needs replacement. The concrete cover is in acceptable
condition but existing cold joint cracks needs to be repaired and sealed along with
cold joints at gas dome and access cover.

Work shall be completed to allow for sludge tank utilization by October 15, 2019.
Plant drawings are included within this packet.

Bids Due: July 26, 2019 (2:00 PM)
Contract Award: August 6, 2019 (6:00 PM)

RFP: Multi-Function Printers

The City of Waupaca currently has five MFP’s in use across facilities served by the City’s IT department. In the past each department would separately procure MFP’s leading to a mix of vendors and manufacturers. Two of the MFP’s the city owns, one is rented and two are leased. The three machines in a lease or rental agreement all end within a short period of each other (November 2019 – February 2020) allowing a clean break to procure replacement machines. The two machines owned by the city will be 7 and 7 ½ years old at the end of this year. The city seeks to enter into a five-year lease agreement for five or six new MFP’s for city facilities. We desire to work with one vendor and all machines from the same manufacturer to allow us to standardize across the organization. Consolidated billing with one overall lease payment and an organization wide maintenance agreement covering all machines is required. 

Your proposal is due by 4pm on Friday, July 19, 2019.

If you have any questions or are ready to submit your proposal. E-Mailed PDF submission preferred.
