EMERGENCY PROCUREMENT FOR
Westside Wastewater Manhole Repair
The City of Gallup, New Mexico determined that the following emergency exists. Describe emergency:
A manhole in the wastewater collection system that routes a 21-inch wastewater line underneath BNSF railroad tracks to the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) failed, thereby placing the wastewater collection in a position of allowing the overflow of raw sewage into the environment. The failed manhole routes all wastewater from the City of Gallup thorugh it into the WWTP. Failure would have caused an extreme danger to the public health and welfare and would have caused the City to violate the Clean Water Act (CWA) and its associated NPDES permit, which would have resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in criminal penalties.
