A brief description of the services sought:
The Daly Road CSO Storage/Vortex Separator is recommended to be upgraded to an Enhanced High Rate Treatment (EHRT) facility in a future phase of the Wet Weather Improvement Program (WWIP). It is therefore the objective of this project to evaluate the overall value of the Daly Road CSO Storage/Vortex Separator to MSDGC and the community as it currently exists. This will provide guidance on the future operational strategy of the facility until it will be upgraded or replaced in a future phase of the WWIP. A Business Case Evaluation (BCE) will be developed to evaluate a number of alternatives that will include:
Continue to operate the facility as is until it is upgraded in a future phase of the WWIP. A cost/benefit analysis on current performance vs. operational and maintenance cost will be performed.
Continue to operate the facility in its most effective operation mode that will yield the most value to MSDGC and the community. Minor capital improvement may be needed such as fixing structural and upscaling mechanical assets to improve and optimize the current facility operations.
Shut down the facility until it will be upgraded in a future phase of the WWIP. Costs of maintenance will also be evaluated even when the facility is shut down.
