This Change Order includes owner requested changes to the original instrumentation and control

design provided by the engineer which provide additional redundancy and circuit protection of the

The additional cost associated with these changes is 2,740.00. After reviewing under water video of

Tagged Passions:utility, Utility, and water

the equipment (yoke) that supports the hydraulic cylinder for Gate four of the outlet tower, it was

determined that removing the yoke from the water, blasting and recoating it would significantly extend

Tagged Passions:utility, Utility, and water

its useful life. Cost for this work was 4,000.00.

Due to previous change order required because of incorrect as-built drawings for underwater

infrastructure, the current Contingency balance is 0.00. This Change Order Number Five will exceed

the remaining contingency balance by 7,609.30.

After negotiations were completed, the final amount agreed upon was 7,609.30. The unit prices for

completing the additional work proposed by Inland Potable Services, Inc. are comparable to the unit

pricing approved for similar type work currently being completed for this project. Inland is also

performing work concurrently at Quincy Reservoir. Therefore, the amount of the proposed change

order is considered to be fair and reasonable. The original contract award amount was 1,322,055.00.

Change Order Numbers One, Three and Four were term extensions only. Change Order Number Two
