Operation and Maintenance, S-159
"Four River Basins, Florida" Project


A re-final acceptance inspection was held on August 108 --f 159
9 pr middle and Lower Water Control Structures in thf mna R
CanalC -135). The work was found to be substantially mhat
e-- The final acceptance inspection was scheduled for August 25, 1981
to allow sufficient time to notify Board Members should they elect to
participate in the inspection. During the period from August 10, 1981
to August 25, 1981 heavy rains fell on the project sites causing con-
siderable erosion in the canal slopes. This damage was observed during
the final acceptance inspection on August 25, 1981.

. .'- After discussion between the Corps of Engineers and District Staffs
regarding the erosion, it was determined that final] acceptance would be
def rrgd until th0 erosion problem was evd. The orps recognized
their responsibility for correcting the damage, but as their Contractor
had completed the work on August 10, 1981, they did not feel that he
should hb hbld liable. The Corps' only other means for correcting the
erosion damage would be through a contract modification to the River
Bypass Closure Contract at S-155 which would involve an extended period
of time to consummate and result in more erosion damage should repair
work be further delayed.

As time is considered of the essence, it was proposed that the erosion
repair could be accomplished by the District forces with the Corps of
Fnnina assuming the cost for the rpnarA. This would also permit the
District to accept the S-159 facilities for operation and maintenance to
prevent further damage to the facilities by lack of maintenance. S-159
Upper Structure would be accepted for limited caretaker maintenance only
to keep the mechanical equipment operable until the Corps of Engineers
completes all remedial work and the structure is finally accepted by the
District. These limited maintenance costs would also be assumed by the
Corps. The Total Estimated Federal Costs (83% of Total) for the erosion
repair and limited maintenance to be paid to the District by the Corps
of Engineers is as follows:

1. Erosion Repair, Lump Sum (one payment) $4,000.00
2. Limited Caretaker Maintenance 200.00/mo.
3. Commercial Power (estimated) 50.00/mo.
The Corps of Engineers have indicated their acceptance of the above
proposal and will issue a purchase order to cover the cost of erosion
repair, limited caretaker maintenance and commercial power for S-159
facilities. This procedure was followed to a lesser extent by the Staff
at S-155 pending completion of the River Bypass Closure. The costs for
S-155 structure included a lump sum payment of $1,000.00 for miscellaneous
repairs, $200.00 per month for maintenance, and an estimated $50.00 per
month for actual commercial power used, for all of which the Corps has
issued a purchase order.
As further delay in repairing the erosion damage at S-159 will result in
a considerable increase in the cost of repairs, it is felt that it will
be to the advantage of all concerned to proceed as soon as possible with
the repair work and maintenance for S-159 as described above. As an
expediency the Staff intends to proceed with this work as outlined
unless objections are received from Board Members. We intend to further
discuss this matter with the Hillsborough River Basin Board on.September 17,
1981.
