RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider making a finding for the method of procurement (request for qualifications) for engineering services to develop design plans and specifications for storage reservoir, pump station, main line and additional work needed to connect into waterlines at the Cindy Park Colonia; authorize the Purchasing Agent to publish a notice; and adopt an order delegating evaluation authority to a selection committee.
BACKGROUND
On July 23, 2014, the Commissioners Court adopted a resolution authorizing the submission of an Application for Financial Assistance for Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Construction to the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB). On November 6, 2014, the TWDB approved the County's financial assistance request of $200,000 from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.

The project will be for the planning and design of a new water distribution system for the Cindy Park colonia including to assist in facilitating land acquisition activities, and coordinating with TCEQ, Cyndie Park II Water Supply Corporation, Nueces Water Supply Corporation, South Texas Water Authority and Nueces County. The proposed new water distribution system will expand from the nearest surface water source at Indian Trails Colonia (located at FM 666 and FM 1833). Nueces Water Supply Corporation, who obtains the water at Indian Trails, has agreed to allow the expansion of their system to reach the Cindy Park colonia, which is located four miles away. The project will ensure that residents will be able to disconnect from their currently contaminated water well(s) and receive safe, surface drinking water.
DISCUSSION
Project is to be paid from the Texas Water Development Board.
