The SOQ’s will be evaluated based on qualifications of the project team, experience with similar projects, and project approach. A cost proposal is not required to be submitted with the SOQ. The District intends to create a short list of firms who will be asked to prepare detailed technical and cost proposals for the project, but reserves the right to negotiate with a single firm who presents the SOQ which in the judgment of the District best meets the needs of the project. Interviews with the short listed firms will likely be part of the selection process. Project background and description, SOQ format, anticipated services, and estimated project schedule are presented below. This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) provides the information needed to prepare and submit an SOQ to the District. The SOQ shall specify each and every item as set forth in the attached specifications. Any and all exceptions must be clearly stated in the SOQ. Failure to set forth any item in the specifications without taking exception may be reason for SOQ rejection. The District reserves the right to reject one or all SOQ’s and to waive any informality. PROJECT BACKGROUND AND DESCRIPTION The proposed intake facilities and improvements are currently envisioned to consist of one (1) vertical shaft approximately 30 feet in diameter by 200 feet deep, one (1) adit and microtunnel out to the lake, one (1) intake pipeline extending along the bank of the reservoir fitted with up to four (4) separate intake ports with automatic isolation valves and fish screens. The intake ports would allow EID to withdraw water from various elevations within the lake based on raw water quality and temperature. Stainless steel fish screens would provide for water intake while physically excluding fish. The diverted water would flow through the screens, pipeline, microtunnel and into the vertical shaft where it would be pumped out by vertical turbine pumps. The top of the vertical shaft would terminate at an approximate elevation of 480 feet, recessed roughly 20 feet below existing grade. A complete pumping station, including vertical turbine pumps, electrical gear and standby power, controls and instrumentation, maintenance equipment, and building structure including bridge crane would be constructed over the vertical shaft. A new large diameter discharge pipe would be included in the project to connect to the existing raw water transmission facilities. The initial and ultimate capacities of the pumping station are estimated to be 31.5 mgd and 52 mgd, respectively. The proposed pump station facilities would be designed to accommodate the future maximum day demands of 52 mgd as indicated in EID’s Water Supply Master Plan. The Water Supply Master Plan Professional Engineering Services Folsom Lake Intake Design October 2008 2 estimates are based on build-out development within the El Dorado Hills Water Treatment Plant service area in accordance with the 2004 County General Plan (El Dorado County, 2004). SOQ REQUIREMENTS AND FORMAT Consultants submitting SOQ’s must demonstrate a broad depth of experience in successful project management, complex permitting, geotechnical engineering and pump station design, plus the ability to work collaboratively with applicable regulatory agencies, the District’s staff and the public. The SOQ should be limited to thirty (30) pages (not including cover letter and resume pages) and follow the outline below. Section 1 - Project Team Description Describe the project team, as a whole and each member individually, and the anticipated responsibilities of each team member. Prepare a concise statement of qualifications, accomplishments, and experience based on the factors and criteria described in this RFQ. A focused resume of each team member may be included in an appendix of the SOQ. Include a project team organizational chart, pointing out the principal experts and manager of the project team. The District strongly prefers that every project team member identified in the SOQ shall remain in that respective capacity during the entire project. Any changes in staffing must be of equal or better qualifications and must be approved by the District. List specific experience of project manager and selected team members with regard to similar project design services for lake intakes, pumping stations, tunnels, intake towers and typical appurtenances. Identify available support resources of the proposed design team firms able to support a project of this magnitude. Section 2 - Experience and References Provide a description of projects similar in nature and scope with the various aspects of the proposed project that your team members have completed in the past 10 years. Please provide description of representative projects where the proposed project team has performed similar services. Information to be provided will include the following: 1. Project name and location. 2. Summary of project. 3. Your firm’s role in project. 4. Role of the proposed team member and their involvement in subject project. 5.
