No. 28055 REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS FOR WATER DISTRIBUTION AND WASTEWATER COLLECTION SYSTEM CONTROLS UPGRADE The Flathead County Water District No. 1 - Evergreen ("District"), located in Flathead County, MT is requesting sealed qualifications packages from qualified firms, teams or consultants interested in providing professional engineering services to the District for development and preparation of construction drawings and specifications, bidding assistance, engineering design, and other services during design and construction of the Water Distribution and Wastewater Collection System Controls Upgrade Project. The District invites qualified consultants to submit a qualifications package based upon the scope of work contained within this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). The District shall not be held responsible for any oral instructions. Changes to this RFQ will be advertised or can be found on the District's website at https://www.evergreenwaterdistrict.com/. This document is intended to provide interested consultants with sufficient information to prepare and submit a statement of qualifications (SOQ) for consideration by the District. The District reserves the right to reject any or all SOQs, to waive any informality or irregularity in any SOQ received, and to be the sole judge of the merits of the respective SOQ received. The Service Provider will be selected on the basis of demonstrated competence and qualification for the type of services required and thereafter the District will negotiate the services agreement with what it deems to be the most qualified company. Project Background The District owns and operates a potable water distribution system that includes four pumping stations and one storage tank with another storage tank soon to be online. Two locations feed the Upper Zone and pump water on demand using PID control loops to maintain pressure in the upper zone. The remaining sites serve the Lower Zone by filling the existing tank(s) and start/stop based on tank level. The potable water distribution system currently operates using antiquated Siemens LC3000 PLCs. Telemetry communications are provided by Cal Amp Integra data radios, which are past their operational life. The District is planning to replace the existing LC3000 PLCs with an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix system with standard parts and pieces allowing them to keep spares in stock and replace hardware as needed. Since much of the existing control system is at the end of its useful life, this project includes the analysis, design, and implementation of an upgraded Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for the District's water supply and distribution system. In addition, the District owns and operates a sanitary sewer collection system that includes 25 lift stations (soon to be 26), which ultimately transport the District's wastewater to the City of Kalispell's wastewater treatment plant. Currently, each lift station uses an Allen-Bradley Micro Logix 1200 and a radio that is no longer mass produced. Since each of these items are end of life, this project includes the analysis, design, and implementation of an upgraded Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system for District's sanitary sewer collection system. Although the water and sanitary sewer collection systems are currently separate control systems and will remain separate systems at the PLC and network level, the District desires to use one SCADA platform with redundant servers for both systems. This SCADA platform will aggregate all data from the water and sanitary collection systems and display it to operations staff in a consistent manner. The SCADA platform must also be redundant, meaning if one of the two SCADA servers fail the second SCADA server will keep operating normally. Scope of Service The selected firm will evaluate the current SCADA system's network architecture, cyber-security posture, teleme try equipment, control hardware/equipment, and control software to identify and recommend opportunities for improvement. The selected firm will then be required to design, program, and implement the recommended changes. In order to complete the collection and distribution system controls upgrade, it is anticipated that the following actions shall be necessary for both potable water and sanitary sewer collection systems: Phase 1: A. Evaluate reliability and functionality of existing PLCs, telemetry data radios, and SCADA system hardware and software. B. Identify state-of-the-art systems/technology for consideration. C. Identify and discuss advantages and disadvantages of the identified systems with particular emphasis on security aspects. D. Identify probable costs of various systems. E. Recommend type of replacement system and reasons for recommendation. Phase 2: F. Assist, as requested, in developing specifications and bid documents for replacement control system. G Provide engineering design services and programming in support of the implementation of the new control system Project Deliverables It is anticipated that the project deliverables will consist of, but are not limited to, Construction Drawings and Specifications, Record Drawings, PLC Programs and other related content, materials, and activities. Further deliverables may be negotiated with consultant's scope. The length of this project is estimated to be from October 22, 2021, to October 31, 2022. Submittal Format and RFQ Content: Five hard copies and one searchable, digital copy of the SOQ must be submitted by 3 pm (local time) October 8, 2021, to: Flathead County Water District No. 1 - Evergreen Attn: Rob Collier 130 Nicholson Dive Kalispell, MT59901 Responses will be received no later than 3:00 pm (local time) on October 8, 2021 , in a sealed envelope clearly marked on the outside "Water Distribution and Wastewater Collection System Controls Upgrade Proposal".
