The California Department of Water Resources has recommended that the City of Tracy receive an $18 million grant for implementing recycled water use in and around Tracy. Total project cost is estimated to be $21.5 million. The City of Tracy is soliciting Request for Proposals from qualified consultants to complete the CEQA process for this project involving construction of recycled water transmission pipelines and pump stations.
The construction of the recycled water transmission pipelines, pump stations and associated appurtenances are part of the City approved Recycled Water Master Plan. The City has approved infrastructure Master Plans. CEQA documentation was completed for the Master Plans (including the Recycled Water Master Plans).
Recycled water is not currently utilized in Tracy and this project will initiate recycled water usage for landscaping at parks, sports fields, school landscaping and playgrounds, street median islands, industrial cooling and for agricultural irrigation. The City requires professional services from qualified Consultants / Companies for analysis and preparation of information for environmental effects of the project in compliance with CEQA.
The anticipated scope of work is to prepare a project description, complete an environmental checklist, perform analysis of the project effects and any impacts, and prepare the CEQA documents. If necessary, assist DWR filing a CEQA notice of determination with the State Clearinghouse showing concurrence with the City of Tracy’s findings on the CEQA work completed for the Master Plan and/or the General Plan. The work to be done should include attendance at two public meetings and two City Council meetings. In addition the proposal should include coordination with the City’s other department, the owners of the pump station sites and any local or state agencies related to the CEQA process. If there are other services that may be desirable during this phase of the project, please include them for consideration. Staff anticipates a mitigated Negative Declaration.
Please submit three copies of the proposal describing your experience in successfully preparing environmental quality documents related to recycled water. The proposal should also include the list of the team members and their qualifications, proposed scope of work and an estimate of the labor requirements (in a separate sealed envelope) to accomplish the work. The proposal should be submitted to the attention of Janis Couturier, City of Tracy Wastewater Treatment Plant, 3900 Holly Drive, CA 95304, on or before November 24, 2015.
