The Regional Water Recycling Plant No. 5 (RP-5) project involves the construction of the upgrade and expansion of the Agency's existing RP-5 plant from a conventional activated sludge wastewater treatment plant to a 22.5 MGD water recycling treatment plant as shown and specified and with the capability of being further expanded to 30 MGD in the future. The major items of WORK to be performed are categorized into the liquids treatment processes, solids treatment processes, common facilities, and off-site facilities, as further described.

Firms interested in providing a sub-quote for this project must contact Kiewit and responding firms will be issued an "Invitation to Bid" through Kiewit's electronic use of SmartBid system (at no cost to bidder) with project information and bid instructions. Plans and specifications are also available for review at Kiewit's office.

This is a public works project and is subject to state prevailing wage rates. The Project is financed in part by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) and the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act ("WIFIA") administered by the EPA and is therefore subject to the American Iron and Steel ("AIS") Provisions, DBE Program requirements and the Davis-Bacon Related Acts.

Responsive bidders must possess a valid California Contractor's license (as appropriate) and provide acceptable insurance. Responsible subcontractors and material contractors will be required to provide bonding for 100% of their contract value. Kiewit will reimburse bond premiums. Kiewit is signatory to collective bargaining agreements with the carpenters, laborers, cement masons, ironworkers, operating engineers and teamsters. Kiewit will consider quotes from any and all bidders who demonstrate an ability to foster and maintain labor harmony on the Project.

Kiewit intends to conduct itself in good faith with all DBEs regarding participation on this project. For further information regarding this project, insurance, bonding, related assistance with equipment, supplies, and materials, or the project schedule, please contact our Lead Estimator.
