DocuSign Envelope ID:3FA3F2B6-17E2-4151-A00D-D6D1E5B72524 <br /> RESOLUTION 3018 <br /> A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ANACORTES, <br /> WASHINGTON, authorizing the purchase of Gutermann Zonescan 820 & <br /> Aquascan 620L leak detection equipment for use in the City's distribution and <br /> transmissions water lines, and waiving the competitive bidding requirement due to <br /> a single source of supply, pursuant to RCW 39.04.280. <br /> WHEREAS, RCW 39.04.280 provides that the City, by resolution, may waive <br /> competitive bidding requirements when a purchase is clearly and legitimately limited to <br /> a single source of supply, or when the purchase involves special facilities or market <br /> conditions. <br /> WHEREAS, the City currently owns and maintains approximately 200 miles of <br /> water distribution and transmission lines; and <br /> WHEREAS, an unexpected failure in the water distribution and transmission <br /> lines would present a real, immediate threat of material loss or damage to property, <br /> bodily injury, or loss of life; and <br /> WHEREAS, the Water Department currently uses Gutermann, Inc. products; and <br /> WHEREAS, Gutermann, Inc. offers a proprietary design of the Zonescan 820 <br /> and the Aquascan 620L (System) that allows the user to gather both leak noise data and <br /> advanced spectrum analysis; and <br /> WHEREAS, this is the only System that performs automatic nightly correlation <br /> and cross correlation, which allows the user to gather much larger noise samples than a <br /> system that only performs on demand correlation. By taking averages of these large <br /> noise samples Gutermann, Inc. can determine whether a correlation is indeed a leak and <br /> eliminate false positive. The system also pinpoints more difficult leaks because of the <br /> averaging function; and <br /> WHEREAS, installing a different brand of leak detection equipment would result <br /> in issues with compatibility between equipment used by the Water Department; and <br /> WHEREAS, Gutermann, Inc. will be able to place our current mapping system <br /> into the program which will allow City staff to identify the leaks found on our waterlines <br /> with gps accuracy; and <br /> WHEREAS, Zonescan 820 & Aquascan 620L are manufactured, sold, and <br /> distributed exclusively by Gutermann, Inc.; and <br /> NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of <br /> Anacortes, Washington, as follows: <br /> Section 1. The City Council of the City of Anacortes finds that purchasing the of <br /> Gutermann Zonescan 820 & Aquascan 620L leak detection equipment for use in <br /> the City's distribution and transmissions water lines, clearly limits the City of <br /> Resolution 3018 Page 1 <br />
