Statement of Issue:
On May 21, 2018, the Huntington Beach City Council approved the expenditure of $4,500,000 to construct Water Well No. 1A, Replacement Project of Well No. 1, CC-1495. The well project was completed, but within the first few months of operation, the well started to produce sand in the pumped well water.

An additional $270,000 is needed above the original contingency amount, increasing the contingency from 10% to 17% for the new equipment.

Financial Impact:
Funds in the amount of $107,333.04 are presently encumbered for the completion of the project by Pacific Hydrotech Corporation. The additional contingency funds ($270,000) are in the project budget in Master Plan Fund Account No. 50791030.82100.
