PFAS treatment systems planning study

The purpose of this RFP is to perform a PFAS Treatment Systems Planning Study for 11 of OCWD’s groundwater producers (Producers).  The participating Producers include Anaheim, East Orange County Water District, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Golden State Water Company, Irvine Ranch Water District, Orange, Santa Ana, Serrano Water District, Tustin, and Yorba Linda Water District.

This planning study will be beneficial for Producers who may be shutting down wells and needing PFAS treatment systems to resume serving groundwater. On an individual Producer basis, the planning study would assess the number of wells impacted, location of wells, and areas available for a treatment system(s). It would also determine how the treatment system(s) would be integrated into the Producer’s existing operations, determine if a centralized treatment plant is feasible for combining wells (individual or multiple Producers), assess the potential for blending, provide initial support for permitting and develop capital costs associated with potential land acquisition, permitting, pipeline connections and system integration.

A pre-proposal meeting will be held at the Orange County Water District Administration Building in Fountain Valley (see address below) on September 3, 2019 at 2 p.m. Proposals are due on September 19, 2019 at 10 a.m.
