Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes a non-competitive agreement with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to install and manage rain gauge and flow monitoring stations as part of the City’s watershed and flood studies. It also authorizes the USGS to monitor select watersheds that install green infrastructure (GI) practices. The estimated contract cost is $284,000 for 5 years broken out as follows.

Body
PREAMBLE
To support the watershed and flood studies, the City will need to provide rain gauge and flow monitoring in the watersheds in order to calibrate the models for accuracy based on known rain fall events. This contract will be a multi-year analysis (2020-2025) to assist in monitoring activities and analyze the implementation of green infrastructure (GI) practice to minimize stormwater runoff entering storm drains. Although much is known on the stormwater volume reduction benefits of individual GI practices, very little is known about the watershed response to a collection of practices.
WHEREAS, the Common Council has authorized funding for continued watershed study efforts as part of the adopted 2020 Stormwater Utility Operating Budget; and
WHEREAS, rain gauge and flow monitoring data are necessary for completion of the stormwater models and are needed to accurately calibrate the models to meet real life rainfall even...
