Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes an amendment to the non-competitive agreement with the 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 will be increased by $152,500 for 5 years, for a total contract amount of $436,500 for the City of Madison and increase of $43,667 for the USGS.
These efforts are funded in the 2020 Adopted Stormwater Utility Operating Budget and are broken down as follows:
City Funding 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 Total
Adopted $65,000 $53,500 $54,000 $55,000 $56,500 $284,000
Amended $86,500 $80,000 $87,000 $88,000 $94,500 $436,500
Proposed Increase $21,500 $27,000 $33,000 $33,000 $38,000 $152,500
The additional costs will be supported through existing budget authority. No additional appropriation is required.

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.
