II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: CIP Project - Request for plumbing systems upgrades in S.D.C.C. housing unit # 8. Most of the plumbing system needs replaced simply due to the amount of demand and wear and tear from 30 years of usage.
2. Project Justification: The main sewer pipe and fittings are worn "paper thin" and ready to break at any time. The original sink faucet for each cell was a bad design and no longer made. As these faucets fail, we have been using our maintenance budget to replace them at the expense of other plumbing issues not being addressed due to funds. Forty six (46) cells need new sink faucets. The mechanical room of S.D.C.C. housing unit # 8 needs upgraded due to several issues. 1.) The floor drains for water softeners were undersized and back up when softener regenerates flooding the room. This flooding problem is where the underground main power conduits for (3) 480V water heaters comes up making them rot and could cause a power outage.
3. Project Background Information: Building was built with 200 (one-man) cells. 3.) Water heating system needs upgraded for same reason. Two hundred stainless steel toilets are being operated with an old wasteful Delaney Flush Valve that costs twice as much to repair as others used throughout all other housing units at S.D.C.C. Original faucets in units (8) cells are no longer being made. These faucets are in the process of being changed over to Acorn faucets with fittings that make use of original fixtures and some of the original piping. Forty-six cells are still operating with original faucets as of February 24, 2014. Each Faucet change over costs $320.00 x 46 cells = $14,720.00. Two hundred toilet retro, parts alone est. cost - $40,000.00 All other work has to be contracted out; projects are too large to use maintenance personnel.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
b. Year existing equipment was installed:
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
d. Model of existing equipment:
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement?
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Equipment and Infrastructure is 30 years old and needs to be replace.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
6. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): Utility distruptions affect the Safety and Security of this facility. A more extensive problem arises in the safety issue with "high voltage" and water in a walking surface. 2.) Water softeners that need either revamped or replaced, as it is too small for inmate housing of300 to 400 people.
7. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Yes
Explain: Inmates will have to be re-located during the repairs. Repairs will need to be pahsed and coordinated to limit the disruption of the operation.
b. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
c. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 2017
d. What is the driving proposed completion date? The Safety and Security of the Facility.
