March 3, 2020: City staff informed by the Evoqua team that there was a delay in production pertaining to some of the equipment necessary for equipment operations. Jim Boyer, Public Works director, anticipates that the equipment delivery may not arrive this week, but next week. This delays the equipment start up by one more week, so originally we anticipated equipment start up the week of March 9, now, start up may not be until the week of March 16.
Feb. 2, 2020: City staff was part of a conference call with the Evoqua Water Technologies team to discuss dates for equipment installation and projected start up of the new system. Although Evoqua originally anticipated equipment to be delivered the end of January, they determined that equipment would finally be delivered the first week of March (this has changed since then as the manufacturer indicated that production of some parts would not be finished until later and delivery is expected the second week of March). Logistical items were discussed pertaining to electrical circuit connections, site location access, and by what methods of offloading equipment will be needed at each site.
