A brief description of the services sought:
MSDGC is under a federal consent decree to reduce sewer overflows caused by wet weather resulting in the District’s Wet Weather Improvement Program (WWIP). The WWIP is a comprehensive multi-billion dollar effort to remedy discharges from MSDGC’s wastewater collection system that occur when it rains.
MSDGC’s Watershed Operations (WO) division operates and maintains wet weather assets constructed under the WWIP, specifically high-rate treatment facilities, and real-time control facilities. Since these facilities are intended to operate during wet weather conditions, ensuring system availability, monitoring, and optimizing performance are top priorities for WO.
This contract is for maintenance and support of the systems that support MSD’s wet weather assets, including; the Watershed SCADA system, the performance modeling and measurement tools that use the data collected by the SCADA system, and the wet weather performance dashboards that display and report that data for operators, managers and ultimately regulatory agencies.
