Design of Wastewater Treatment Plant Primary Clarifier Upgrade

RFP ISSUE DATE:         January 19, 2023
RFP CLOSING DATE:    February 28, 2023
RFP CLOSING TIME:    14:00 Local Time
The Summerland Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) primary clarifier is over 20 years old with critical parts reaching the end of their service life. The tank and equipment have not been properly maintained due to lack of redundancy and therefore the ability to access. Internal components are corroded and in need of maintenance. The primary clarifier has not been inspected or drained for maintenance since commissioning, therefore, a redundant primary clarifier with 100% capacity of maximum design flow is required to allow proper maintenance of each clarifier.
