Request for Proposals

Scope of Work
The scope of work is to plan, manage and conduct a leak detection survey in four (4) water service areas, as follows:

  • Semiahmoo
  • Semiahmoo/Douglas
  • Clayton
  • Cloverdale

The survey will include leak detection on all water mains, service connections, hydrants, valves, PRVs and zone boundaries in the service areas.  Leak detection at the zone boundaries will be conducted to identify any inter-zone flow (flow between service areas).  All service connections, as a minimum those identified in COSMOS - the City's online mapping system, shall be surveyed.  Most of the service connections are plastic pipe material.

A report will detail the leak detection survey results, recommendations for leak repair methods for each detected leak location, and an overall leak detection maintenance program.  The report will also discuss any field observations that differ from what is shown in the City's GIS water records in COSMOS.
