Bid Title: Shared Water Distribution Study
Category: Request for Proposals
Status: Open

The Willow Creek Region - Shared Water Distribution Study will provide a workable road map to move the municipalities within the MD of Willow Creek to sustainable and secure long-term water access and delivery while protecting the watersheds and environment in the long term. The local governments wish to examine regional and sub-regional aspects of the water delivery system from raw water sources, also ensuring that effluent discharges from wastewater facilities do not negatively impact the watersheds that are relied upon for safe and affordably treated drinking water.
The partnership will work with a selected engineering firm to examine raw water sources within the region for both quality and quantity, to determine the best source or sources of raw water to serve the region, sub regions and individual jurisdictions, identifying strategies for common and shared resources under new licensing and governance models where they make logistical, economic and environmental sense

The study must address the following:
  1. Effectiveness, quality, lifespan, as well as geographical challenges of the region’s collective water resources to determine the recommended location(s) for shared infrastructure and services where financially and logistically viable.
  2. The costs and routing of distribution pipelines through the region/ sub-regions and a conceptual phasing plan to achieve an enhanced delivery model.
  3. Applicable modeling for water pipelines, chlorine degradation and booster stations for chlorine and pressure.
  4. Wastewater discharge locations will be examined so that we can be assured that we will not be harming areas of the watershed due to changes in source locations. This would include review of wastewater effluent records held by both the local governments and Alberta Environment.
  5. Options for the governance of regional or sub-regional water delivery that would be recommended for the oversight and management of shared distribution and treatment systems.
  6. Options for equitable and fair approaches to the operational management and financial renewal of shared water distribution and treatment capital assets.
