The purpose of this Scope of Work is to provide protective measures to lift stations, in Bay County, Florida, funded through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) DR-4399-038-R, as approved by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (Division) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
As a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program project, the Sub-Recipient proposes to provide protection to thirty six (36) lift stations, located within Bay County, Florida, 32401, 32404, 32405, 32409, 32413, and 32444. The proposed scope of work shall provide protection by purchasing and installing thirty-six (36) permanent bypass pumps. The Installation of emergency standby pumping systems at each lift station shall mitigate sanitary sewer flooding and surcharging. During storm events, the sanitary sewer system needs to continue circulation to prevent being overwhelmed by any increased volume from floodwaters. Emergency bypass pumps allow lift station pump operation to be maintained even without an external power supply. The proposed systems include a 400 GPM pump, or the adequate size determined by the vendor and/or the appropriate professional during the bid process to appropriately support the critical facility, intending to evacuate the sanitary lift stations during power outages. The pumps shall be protected against a 500-year flood event by Implementing specific activities or by locating the pumps outside the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) and shall be protected against the wind with a rated enclosure based on its location requirements. Activities shall be completed in strict compliance with Federal, State, and Local Rules and Regulations.
