Review, Amendments and Approval of the Agenda.

Motion 20-164: Approve the Agenda of September 2, 2020. Murphy/Sanders Unanimously Approved II.

Thomas Building (Doneux)

Administrator Doneux reviewed that on July 27, 2016, CRWD entered into a purchase agreement for 595 Aldine Street and 1736 Thomas Ave. The District closed on the properties on February 27, 2017. As a condition of the sale, CRWD purchased both parcels, 595 Aldine Street and 1736 Thomas Ave from McQueen Equipment. The purchase price for both parcels was $1,350,000. The Thomas parcel is now listed with a 2020 estimated property value of $480,700 and is a separate tax parcel from the Aldine property that is 0.83 acres in size. The building is approximately 8,100 square feet. The workshop focus is on the future disposition of the Thomas property. The District moved into the 595 Aldine building on December 4, 2018 and the Thomas Building has remained mostly empty since the move with the exception of some temporary, incidental storage. Administrator Doneux shared his opinion that the building should no longer remain vacant and that the District should determine to sell or repair/refurbish and lease out the building. While no need is on the one to two-year horizon for the property, there is a likelihood that with the District’s new Facility Management program, additional equipment storage and maintenance areas would be required in the next five years. Retaining an interest in the property, either through ownership or lease, would also be advantageous due to the need for overflow


parking during major training and other events. The District will always retain easements for access and maintenance to the underground infiltration system and groundwater monitoring wells on the Thomas property. Administrator Doneux provided a review of the property lines for both 595 Aldine and 1736 Thomas Avenue. Drainage from the Aldine property drains into the southwest corner of the Thomas property. Roof drainage from the Thomas building has been fixed to drain into the southwest corner away from the neighboring property. President Collins requested that Administrator Doneux review the uses for the building. Administrator Doneux shared how the building can be divided for multiple uses. CRWD is interested in maintaining use of the three lower garage spaces. Several entities have shared interest in leasing the remaining space. Most of the interest has been in warehouse/storage space. Freshwater Society has shown interest in making renovations to use a portion of space for office and warehouse. Administrator Doneux explained how using the Thomas building for office space would require improvements for handicap accessibility. Manager Jones asked about year to date maintenance costs. Administrator Doneux reviewed the 2019 carrying costs for the Thomas property was $15,000 of which about $10,000 was minor maintenance and the balance was utilities and security fees. The 2020 year to date costs are about $39,000 of which $31,000 is deferred maintenance including code required electrical work, roof repair, roof drain and exterior maintenance. Administrator Doneux asked Attorney Mogen’s legal opinion of leasing the Thomas building. Attorney Mogen replied that CRWD has limited authority. Adding that levy funds could not be used for development costs, developing a building might question authority. President Collins asked if plans for the Thomas building were included in Watershed Management Plan. Administrator Doneux replied yes, future planning for the Thomas building is included in the Watershed Management Plan. Manager Murphy shared that mosquito patrol currently shares a building with a similar entity. Manager Sanders shared that maintaining the building for future needs is necessary. Manager Sanders also added that CRWD needs to be caretakers for the neighborhood and that the building needs to be used and not sit empty until needed. The Managers agreed that CRWD needs to maintain ownership of the Thomas building for future needs of the district. Board Managers also agreed that someone needs to be leasing the space in to ensure building is getting used. No Action was taken. Workshop for informational and discussion only. III.

Special Reports – Watershed Management Plan Update, Anna Eleria

Ms. Eleria reviewed that in August, CRWD’s Board of Managers approved the responses to comments on the formal, 60-day draft CRWD 2021-2030 Watershed Management Plan and conducted a public hearing to present the draft plan, comments, and responses to comments. CRWD received three major comments on the draft plan, which included the need for measurability of goals, clarity in the District’s theme of community equity and engaging underrepresented groups, and a discussion on fiscal management and health. CRWD and Barr Engineering staff have prepared a draft table that correlates Plan goals to implementation activities and their associated ‘numeric’ measurable outputs. Combined with a few changes to the goals, Ms. Eleria shared that staff believe that comments about measurability of goals and we can determine if and how we are making progress in achieving the Plan goals have been addressed. The language around goal measurability, community equity and engaging underrepresented groups and funding have also been revised. Other comments were addressed as laid out in the Board approved responses. A final draft Plan will be presented at a Special Board Meeting on September 8, 2020. Manager Texer asked about an environmental impact bond. Ms. Eleria replied that a bond for environmental improvement projects could possibly provide new funding. Manager Jones added that Ms. Eleria has done an excellent job on responding to details and recommended that maps be larger to be easier to read. Motion 20-169: Schedule a Special Board Meeting on September 8, 2020 for the Watershed Management Plan. Murphy/Sanders Unanimously Approved

Action Items


A) AR: Approve Minutes of the August 19, 2020 Regular Meeting (Sylvander) Motion 20-170: Approve the Minutes of the August 19, 2020 Regular Meeting. Murphy/Sanders Unanimously Approved B) AR: Approve Ramsey County GIS User Group Joint Powers Agreement for 2021-2025 (Zwonitzer) Mr. Zwonitzer reviewed that the mission of the Ramsey County GIS Users Group is to share, develop and promote GIS data and technology collaboratively throughout Ramsey County for the benefit of its citizens, local communities, government agencies, and business partners. The group is made up of 21 members including Ramsey County, cities, watershed districts, and other government organizations. Meetings are held approximately four times each year allowing group members to review new technological advances in GIS, share projects and applications of the data, and collaborates on collecting new information such as updated aerial photography. The Ramsey County GIS Users Group is governed by a Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) approved by all members. The current agreement expires at the end of 2020. The new JPA differs from previous versions as penalties and restrictions on leaving and rejoining the group have been eliminated. Members are now only required to approve the JPA and pay their annual dues to participate in the group and access shared resources. Since there are no additional penalties or restrictions for leaving or joining the group, the term of the agreement has changed from 3 years to 5 years to simplify administration for the group and its members. The Users Group approves an annual fee structure for its members. The structure has remained unchanged for several years and will remain unchanged for 2021. CRWD’s fee for 2021 will be $1,705.97. Since CRWD is entirely within Ramsey County, and the data made available through the group supports its work, staff recommend CRWD continue to be an active member of the Ramsey County GIS Users Group. Mr. Zwonitzer added that CRWD has been a member of this group for ten years. Attorney Mogen asked if there was an escape clause. Mr. Zwonitzer replied that there is no penalty for leaving or rejoining. Motion 20-171: Approve the 2021-2025 Ramsey County GIS Users Group Joint Powers Agreement and fee structure and authorize the Board President and District Administrator to execute the agreement. Murphy/Sanders Unanimously Approved C) AR: Adopt Preliminary 2021 Budget and Levy (Doneux) Administrator Doneux shared that each year the Board of Managers must establish a plan of work for the upcoming year, establish a budget based upon the work plan, and establish a levy for the budget. The Board of Managers discussed the current 2020 budget and revenue at the May 6th and 21st Board meetings. The Board also reviewed the preliminary 2021 Work Plan along with the budget and levy at Board workshops on June 3rd and July 8th as well as at Board Meetings on June 17th and July 22nd, 2020. The Citizen Advisory Committee reviewed and recommended approval on the proposed 2021 budget and


levy at their August 12th meeting. A duly noticed Public Hearing was held on August 19th to collect public comment on the proposed 2021 budget and levy. The District has not received any comments as of August 27th. The Board of Managers must adopt a Preliminary 2021 Budget and Levy Certification before the initial September 30, 2020 deadline. Administrator Doneux recommended that the Board adopt the preliminary budget and levy as presented. If the Board were to consider a change in the budget or levy, he recommended doing that at the December, Final Levy Certification to allow for better estimating of fund balance as well as external budget requests. Staff is recommending the preliminary budget of $799,100 for Administration, $3,370,934 for Programs, $1,181,286 for Projects for a total Operations Budget of $5,351,320 and $3,726,290 for Capital Improvement Projects. This results in a total Preliminary 2021 Budget of $9,077,610. This is a decrease of $2,709,373 from the adopted budget for 2020. The proposed 2021 tax levy is $8,277,699. This includes $7,227,760 for the operations and capital levy and $1,049,939 for debt. This levy is the same as 2020. Administrator Doneux added that a comment was received from Mr. Wes Saunders-Pearce with the City of St. Paul regarding wetland planning funds. Administrator Doneux shared that $78,000 has been allocated for wetland planning. Motion 20-172: Adopt the Preliminary 2021 Budget and Levy. Murphy/Sanders Unanimously Approved D) AR: Approve 2021 Partner Grant Program Request for Proposals (Schwantes) Ms. Schwantes reviewed Partner Grants support organizations who share in CRWD’s mission to protect, manage, and improve our water resources. Expenses eligible for reimbursement include personnel/staff time and materials. Any organization or community group serving residents within CRWD’s boundaries is eligible to apply. Projects funded in 2021 must be completed with a final report submitted by December 31, 2021. Grants are funded on a reimbursement basis and liability insurance is required for all grantees. Partner Grants are given to organizations, schools, businesses and other entities for clean water education and outreach projects. Grant awards range from $1,000-$20,000. Ms. Schwantes shared the 2021 Partner Grant solicitation list. The distribution list includes previous grant recipients and organizations that represent new audiences for CRWD. The draft 2021 budget for Partner Grants is $135,000. Changes to the promotion and evaluation process include CRWD’s diversity and inclusion goals, an updated application form that includes improved questions that address CRWD’s priority audiences as outlined in the 2020 WMP and measuring project impact. These will be used during the review process. Ms. Schwantes shared that staff will be hosting a virtual information session for interested applicants to learn about eligibility and contracting requirement on October 7, 2020. Staff will also promote CRWD’s Stewardship Grant Program and provide information on how to apply to the CAC in a promotion email. The 2020 Partner Grant Committee Board appointments are Managers Jones and Murphy. No alternate was designated at the annual meeting. Two CAC members will be identified to serve on the committee at the


September 9, 2020 meeting. The committee will review applications and select grant recipients in November for Board approval in December. Motion 20-173: Identify an alternate Board Manager to serve on the Partner Grant Committee and authorize staff to distribute CRWD’s 2021 Partner Grant Request for Proposals and proceed with the grant review and approval process according to the proposed timeline. Murphy/Sanders Unanimously Approved VI.

September 16, 2020 V.C.) Adopt Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan (Gardner)

DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

September 11, 2020 CRWD Board of Managers Belinda Gardner, Administrative Assistant Adopt 2020-2025 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan

Background CRWD’s Board of Managers formalized a diversity and inclusion statement in 2010, “The Capitol Region Watershed District embraces and values diversity and seeks to recruit, promote and retain employees that reflect the community we serve. We believe that a diverse mix of employees enrich the workplace and enhance the quality of our service. The Capitol Region Watershed District encourages all qualified to apply for open positions.” The Board directed staff to develop a Diversity Plan with support from a consultant in 2016. A Committee comprised of two Board Managers, a Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) member and staff was created to interview and hire a firm to develop the Plan. A Diversity Strategic Plan was developed and approved in 2018. In 2020, District staff along with Kevin Lindsay, developed Implementation Tasks supporting the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan. Issues In August and early September, CRWD Staff, the Diversity Committee and CAC reviewed and commented on the Implementation Tasks. Updates were made to the plan. On September 16, 2020 Staff will present to the Board of Managers and request adopting the 2020-2025 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan. Action Requested Adopt 2020-2025 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan.

Enclosures: CRWD 2020-2025 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan

Our mission is to protect, manage and improve the water resources of Capitol Region Watershed District.


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Plan 2020-2025

Capitol Region Watershed District Saint Paul, MN September 16, 2020


CRWD’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Plan

Background, History and Implementation of Plan CRWD’s Board of Managers created a diversity and inclusion statement in 2010. “The Capitol Region Watershed District embraces and values diversity and seeks to recruit, promote and retain employees that reflect the community we serve. We believe that a diverse mix of employees enrich the workplace and enhance the quality of our service. The Capitol Region Watershed District encourages all qualified to apply for open positions.” In 2016, the Board directed staff to develop a Diversity Plan with support from a consultant. A Diversity Committee, including Board Managers Seitu Jones and Joe Collins and Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) member Pat Cavanaugh, was established. In 2017, Azon Consulting was hired. They began by interviewing key Board, CAC and staff members to learn more about the district’s cultural competency, mission, vision and values, and how they related to diversity and inclusion. A Diversity Strategic Plan was developed and approved in 2018. The district began implementing the Diversity Strategic Plan by reviewing and improving its hiring practices with support provided by Ramsey County. The first step was to review CRWD’s position descriptions and announcements and where the district was promoting its openings. Staff participating on interview committees attended implicit bias training and external colleagues were invited to participate in the training and interview panel as well. Interview questions were adapted to include topics such as ethics, values and a demonstrated understanding of and commitment to diversity and inclusion. Applicants received questions in advance of the interview and all personal information was redacted prior to staff review to reduce bias. Historically, some areas and communities within the watershed have been underserved due to prior District work focused on high-impact projects located in limited areas (e.g., Como Lake and Lake McCarrons subwatersheds). In 2018, with the help a Minnesota GreenCorps Member, the District analyzed hundreds of grant-funded projects and found significantly less program participation in the central and eastern portions of the District (Trout Brook, Saint Anthony Hill and Phalen Creek subwatersheds). These subwatersheds correspond to areas of racially concentrated poverty (ACP50) defined by Metropolitan Council as 40% or more of the residents live with incomes below 185% of the federal poverty threshold and 50% or more of the residents are people of color. Since 2019, staff have identified ways to reduce potential barriers to participation in the grant program by underserved communities. CRWD is offering higher grant awards and conducting promotion efforts in areas with low participation. Staff began reaching out to district planning councils and community groups in those areas to discuss the 1


program and how residents, businesses and community groups can get involved as well as additional support provided by the district. CRWD adopted a policy for soliciting professional services in 2010 and solicits statements of qualifications from interested consultants on a bi-annual basis. The last time CRWD staff solicited qualifications from consultants was in early 2017 for the 2017–2018 consultant pool. A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) for general water resource professional services for 2019 and 2020 was distributed to CRWD’s previous RFQ list as well as approximately 95 Minnesota businesses that meet WBE (womenowned) or MBE (minority-owned) certifications through MNUCP (Federal/State database) and/or CERT (Metro database administered by St. Paul). CRWD received Statements of Qualifications (SOQs) from 28 firms and determined their qualifications for specific service areas. Of the submittals received, 15 were firms in CRWD’s 2017-2018 pool, and 13 are new firms for 2019-2020. Of the new firms, six are disadvantaged business enterprises (DBE) bringing the total DBE firms in the pool to seven. Going forward, staff will request proposals or qualifications for projects from the pool within a respective service area as needed and will include DBE firms when possible. Relationship building is the corner stone of establishing trust and making real progress when it comes to diversity and inclusion work. CRWD staff began developing and/or deepening relationships with community groups serving areas of the district where engagement has been low. Staff has presented at community meetings, attended many new events, elevated storytelling about diverse community members doing great work and created a new display with a local artist to better engage residents at community and cultural events. The district has also worked to identify and address barriers to participation in meetings such as transportation, childcare, accessibility, etc. Since 2018, CRWD staff has gathered over lunch to discuss a wide range of diversity and inclusion topics. These meetings have been focused on reading or watching memoirs, blogs, and videos as well as a role play activity depicting a local environmental justice case. The group has covered topics such as racism, gender equality, environmental justice, sexual identity/orientation, mental health, indigenous history, personality type. The intention of this informal staff group is to build a more inclusive team internally and to make connections to our work that reach outside our organization. CRWD has folded its Diversity Strategic Plan goals and implementation activities into its updated 10-year watershed management plan, which will be adopted in fall 2020. The plan also includes nine themes that reflect high level topics and District values that will be considered and weaved into every aspect of the District’s work over the next 10 years. Community equity and engaging underrepresented groups is one of the nine themes. We recognize that we can achieve cleaner waters through engagement across the District’s diverse communities. 2


Need for a Plan CRWD serves a highly diverse population of residents. Over time, CRWD’s population has grown more racially and ethnically diverse. Between 2000 and 2015, the percentage of people of color in the City of Saint Paul, which comprises 85% of the District, increased from 36% to 46%. Across Ramsey County, this percentage increased from 13% in 2000 to 30% in 2014. These trends are expected to continue through 2040. The Board and staff acknowledged the need for a more thoughtful and strategic approach to the district’s diversity and inclusion work in an effort to better engage all of CRWD’s residents. The Diversity Committee developed the following goals in preparation for creating its first Diversity Strategic Plan. 1. CRWD and its service providers should reflect the racial, gender and cultural demographics of the watershed and City of Saint Paul. 2. Understand and incorporate cultural perspectives on water and government. 3. Create opportunities for people of color in the environmental/water resources profession through training and recruitment. 4. Consider equity and equality as a means to achieve diversity. 5. Use water management as a tool to help address local and community concerns.

See dates above for timeline of subsequent diversity-related activities since Board approval of the Diversity Plan. Geography of Capitol Region Watershed District Capitol Region Watershed District includes portions of the Cities of Saint Paul, Roseville, Lauderdale, Falcon Heights and Maplewood. Barriers that were encountered during the process Meeting audiences where they are was emphasized in the study A Community Capacity Assessment for Stormwater Management in the Twin Cities Metro Area, 2016. CRWD has been making intentional efforts to do just that by participating in numerous cultural events that are not explicitly connected to water management. CRWD has also learned that to succeed in being a diverse and equitable organization, it is important to hire staff and consultants that reflect the communities we serve. Staff has been working with partner groups to strengthen programming that educates and empowers young people of all backgrounds to pursue careers and higher education in natural resource fields. Outcomes and Benefits of the Plan o Best Practices in Hiring ▪ New publications where positions were posted: African News Journal, Hmong Times, Insight News, LaPrensa/Vida y Sabor, MN Spokesman Recorder. ▪ CRWD received 284 applications for five positions. Demographics were not collected during the application process. o Stewardship Grant Equity Bonus ▪ Staff conducted outreach to three Saint Paul District Planning Councils. o Water Resource Professional Services Consultant Pool Expansion ▪ 95 Minnesota businesses that meet WBE (women-owned) or MBE (minority-owned) certifications through MNUCP received the 2019-2020 Request for Qualifications 4


CRWD received six new Statements of Qualifications from disadvantaged business enterprises (DBE) bringing the total DBE firms in the pool to seven. ▪ 8 BMP maintenance service providers (landscape contractors) including 4 DBEs received the request for quotes for 2020 services. ▪ CRWD hired a DBE firm to provide 2020 BMP maintenance services. o Relationship Building ▪ In 2019, CRWD made connections with nearly 11,000 residents at over 70 different events. Events included school presentations, tours, community gatherings and others reaching audiences of all backgrounds and ages across the watershed. CRWD emphasized its presence in neighborhoods and with cultural and ethnic groups the District had previously not worked with. o CRWD Diversity and Inclusion Staff Group ▪ 12 meetings to explore a variety of diversity and inclusion topics. Lessons learned The district is very comfortable developing and implementing plans to complete projects. The Diversity Strategic Plan is unique in that the work does not always materialize in a linear way and will likely continue indefinitely, even with specific goals and outcomes in mind. Part of moving forward is embracing that journey and making progress without knowing what to expect and that some strategies may fail. The key is to learn from them and to make improvements. In cases where the district does not have relationships in a community, it’s most effective to communicate through and with trusted community leaders and organizations. The district continues to look for ways to communicate about its programs and projects in ways that resonate with what’s important to those audiences. This includes translating materials, amplifying the work of partners through storytelling and sharing, and incorporating the arts and technology into our community engagement efforts.

September 16, 2020 V. Action Items E.) Public Art Program Guiding Principles (Schwantes) DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

September 11, 2020 Board of Managers Lindsay Schwantes CRWD Public Art Program Field Guide

Background In 2010, the Board of Managers approved engaging the services of Public Art Saint Paul and Christine Bauemler as CRWD Watershed Artist in Residence. As part of this initiative, a report was drafted called The Watershed Language of Art to help provide direction on how art can enhance the District’s mission. Art and artistic consultation has since been integrated into many District projects and programs including the Green Line green infrastructure practices, Midway Peace Park and many elements in our new office as well as adding a Public Art Program to our annual budget. Staff attended the July 22 Board meeting and provided an update on plans to conduct a Ripple Mapping Exercise evaluation of CRWD’s Public Art Program with the goal of providing direction on how best art can further our mission. The exercise was facilitated by Abby Gold and took place on July 27 with Board Manager Seitu Jones, CRWD Watershed Artist in Residence, Christine Baeumler, Mark Doneux, Anna Eleria, Jessica Bromelkamp, Lindsay Schwantes from staff, and CAC member Pat Cavanaugh. Issues Artist in Residence, Christine Baeumler used the exercise to draft a set of recommendations and guidance for enhancing the District’s Public Art Program and improving the integration of art into other projects and programs outlined in the attached Draft CRWD Public Art Program Guiding Principles document. Staff will provide a summary of suggested next steps and seek Board comments. Action requested Approve the CRWD Public Art Program Guiding Principles enc:

CRWD Public Art Program Ripple Mapping Exercise Draft CRWD Public Art Program Guiding Principles

W:\07 Programs\Watershed Artist\2020\Field Guide - Ripple Mapping\Board Materials\Board Memo CRWD Public Art Program Guiding Principals.docx


Guiding Principles for CRWD’s Public Art Program Intention: An interdisciplinary and socially engaged Art approach can impact how we think about problems and act out solutions. How can creative processes themselves be infused into different aspects of the District’s work? 1. Institutionalize the role of Art and artists into the fabric of CRWD’s mission, identified themes, and goals throughout the organization. Share CRWDs innovative approaches with other water quality organizations and the general public 2. Identify projects and programs in which art/artists can contribute to (and potentially transform) the work through innovative ways of thinking) 3. Use Art to engage with the wider community through hands-on engagement, aesthetic design, and educational materials and interactions 4. Whenever possible Integrate Art into Capital Improvement Projects. Explore the role of artists through contracting and RFQ processes. Art could play a significant role in drawing attention to CIPs that are below ground (e.g., TBI, Allianz Field) as well as those on the surface that seems no different from traditional infrastructure or features (e.g., Seminary Pond, Willow Reserve). 5. Consider how Art could play a role in CRWD’s diversity and inclusion goals. Examples include engaging a more comprehensive range of artists, introducing different cultural ways of knowing, celebrating, and experiencing water (for example, as a Relative rather than a Resource), and lift up and include voices that have been marginalized Next Steps: • •

Provide a summary of how Art has been integrated into the work of CRWD over the years (through Artist in Residence program and other initiatives) Create a CRWD Art Field Guide that will identify and provide a menu of options in terms of ways of identifying and hiring artists, and address some of the challenges and barriers (insurance requirements, for example) Initial considerations include: o Work with Artists for commissioned projects or experiences o Offer paid positions such as internships, sponsorships, or watershed artist in residences. o Include Art in the RFQ process for District initiatives. Reference and explore developing a public art program guidelines document (similar to Saint Paul’s City Art Ordinance).


•

Develop a plan to use CRWD’s office flex space as a gallery for displaying art exhibits with a focus on work by Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color artists. Create a reference list of Arts organizations and Artists who are working at the intersection of Art, water quality, environmental justice and bring fresh perspectives in effectively working with a wider range of stakeholders

These principles and recommendations are based, in part, on the feedback obtained through the Ripple Map Evaluation facilitated by Abby Gold created in August of 2020. The Field Guide will provide a roadmap for CRWD as membership on the staff and board changes over time. It is intended as a flexible, living document rather than contain prescriptive recommendations.


September 16, 2020 Board Meeting V. Action Items F. Approve Contract Amendment No. 5 - Como Golf Course BMP Project (Kelley) DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

September 10, 2020 CRWD Board of Managers Forrest Kelley, PE Regulatory Division Manager Approve Contract Amendment #5 with HEI for Como Regional Park Stormwater BMPs

Background CRWD worked with the City of Saint Paul to develop a stormwater master plan for Como Regional Park, which identified several potential regional Best Management Practice (BMP) sites. In 2018 CRWD contracted with Houston Engineering Inc. (HEI) to advance design on the Iron Enhanced Sand Filter Bench at the northwest Golf Course Pond, and expansion of the existing Polar Bear Infiltration Basin combined with additional underground infiltration pipes at Hole 7 near the zoo. Issues Work at the Zoo/Hole 7 is substantially complete, and Iron Enhanced Sand is scheduled for placement the week of 9/14/2020. During the push to finalize plans last spring, Houston Engineering worked with the Parks Department’s golf course architect, Norby Golf Design to incorporated drawings and specifications for restoration of the fairways. This collaboration took longer than anticipated, with an iterative review process, multiple design changes, and 2 additional virtual meetings during the beginning of the stay at home order. CRWD staff also requested additional work on temporary and permanent educational signage to be installed on the golf course. Houston Engineering has agreed to absorb around $20,000 of the actual amount of the cost overrun. This amendment provides services to bring the project to full completion. Requested Action Approve Contract Amendment #5 with HEI for Como Park BMP Project Additional Services totaling $49,973 and a new total contract not to exceed $355,818 Enc: HEI Task Order Revision and Change in Scope of Services #5 dated September 3, 2020 W:\06 Projects\Como Lake Projects\Como Regional Park BMPs\HEI Contract\Contract Amendment #5\2020-09-16 Board Memo Como BMPs Contract Amendment #5.docx

Houston Engineering, Inc. (Houston Engineering, HEI) entered into a contractual agreement (i.e., AGREEMENT) on May 25, 2018 to provide professional consulting services to the Capitol Region Watershed District (District, CRWD). The AGREEMENT identifies various services to be performed in fulfillment of the contract and an associated compensation amount. The AGREEMENT identifies the services to be performed in return for an estimated compensation of $99,559, and subsequently amended for a total fee of $305,845. This memorandum is the fifth task order revision & change in Scope of Services for an additional fee of $49,973, resulting in a revised total of $355,818. See below for a summary of contract changes. The purpose of this memorandum is to document a change in the Scope of Services provided by Houston Engineering under our AGREEMENT and to document additional fees associated with the change in the Scope of Services. The AGREEMENT deadline will remain at July 2022. Scope of Services dated 11/25/2019 (included in Additional Services #3) included $10,924 for Task 3 Construction Document Revision and Finalization. HEI’s total cost for this task was $79,389.

September 16, 2020 Board Meeting V. G) Authorize Notice of Award and Order Construction of Seminary Pond Improvement Project (Eleria)

DATE: TO: FROM: RE:

September 10, 2020 CRWD Board of Managers Anna Eleria, Division Manager Authorize Notice of Award and Order Construction of Seminary Pond Improvement Project

Background In early August 2020, CRWD’s Board of Managers approved plans and cooperative agreements and authorized bidding for the Seminary Pond Improvement Project. The project, a partnership between CRWD, City of Lauderdale, City of Falcon Heights, Ramsey County and the University of Minnesota, will minimize stormwater runoff volumes and pollutant loads from Seminary Pond, a regional stormwater pond built over 20 years ago that serves a 128-acre subwatershed. There are three distinct project areas: 1) Seminary Pond – converting it from a dry pond to a wet pond, installing two iron-enhanced sand filter benches and pretreatment structures, and stabilizing the primary inlet and channel to the pond; 2) Gasperre Ravine - stabilizing the eroded ravine located north and upstream of Seminary Pond; and 3) Fowell/Fulham outlet pipe – extending it to stabilize an eroded ravine located east of Seminary Pond. Issues The bidding period for the project extended over a three-and-a-half-week period from August 10 – September 2, 2020. The base bid for the project includes Seminary Pond and Gasperre Ravine (areas #1 and #2). The Fowell/Fulham outlet pipe (area #3) was bid as an alternate at the time of the bidding start because an easement on private property was still in negotiation. At this time, final easement language is being prepared and signatures will be obtained from the property owner and Falcon Heights by September 23rd, which corresponds with the next Falcon Heights City Council meeting. CRWD received bids from ten contractors, which ranged from approximately $455,000 to $848,000 for the entire project (base bid plus alternate). The engineer’s estimate for the entire project was $790,000 and eight out of 10 bids were below the estimate. See summary table below. Contractor Name

September 8, 2020 Ms. Anna Eleria Division Manager Capitol Region Watershed District 595 Aldine Street Saint Paul, MN 55104 Re: Review of Bids for Seminary Pond Improvements Project Dear Anna: Barr Engineering Co. has reviewed the bids for the Seminary Pond Improvements Project, for which bids were opened on September 2, 2020. Nadeau Companies, LLC, (Nadeau), submitted a base bid of $395,865.00 and a base bid plus alternate of $455,161.50, which was the lowest bid for both base bid and base bid plus alternate. Acknowledgement of addenda, virtually signing the bid, and submittal of the bid bond and responsible bidder evaluation indicates Nadeau is a responsive bidder. Our previous experience working with Nadeau on successful earthwork, ravine, and iron-enhanced sand filtration projects in the Twin Cities indicate they are a responsible bidder. As the lowest, responsive and responsible bidder, we are unaware of any reason the CRWD Board should not accept Nadeau’s bid. We recommend that CRWD select the base bid plus alternate if legal agreements can be executed for the alternate. Upon the Board’s acceptance of the bid, Nadeau will be required to submit the performance bond, payment bond, and insurance information. After the receipt and legal review of these documents, CRWD may issue the Notice to Proceed. In addition, the Form of Agreement will be signed by all parties. Work will commence at the site after the Form of Agreement has been executed and the Notice to Proceed issued (likely early October 2020, no later than November 1, 2020). Nadeau has 12 weeks from starting the work to substantially complete the work. If you have any questions please contact me at 612-710-8140 or ncampeau@barr.com. Sincerely,

Nathan Campeau, PE Attachment: Bid Summary
