The New York City Water Board (the “Board”) is a public benefit corporation charged with establishing and collecting water and sewer rates and charges for the water and sewer system (the “System”) of the City of New York (the “City”). The System is operated and maintained by the City’s Department of Environmental Protection (“DEP”), and it delivers approximately one billion gallons of water per day to over eight million users in the City, as well as about 110 million gallons a day to nearly one million people living in Westchester, Putnam, Ulster, and Orange counties. These communities north of the City are served by wholesale water utilities that are customers of the Board (the “Customers”).
With the System’s service area population expected rise to 10 million by 2030, in times where the System must curtail consumption for construction or other purposes, conservation will have an important role in meeting water demand. As the Customers’ consumption represents 10% of the System’s demand, DEP and the Board are undertaking a water conservation program (the “Program”) to benefit the Customers. As part of this Program, the Board is seeking a consultant(s) who will collaborate with each participating Customer in the development of a water conservation plan (a “Conservation Plan”). The Board is issuing a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to solicit proposals from qualified vendors to provide Conservation Plan consulting services.
All qualified vendors are invited to respond to the RFP. The RFP package may be obtained from the following link:
The deadline for submission of proposals is 12:00 p.m. (EDT), October 7, 2013.
