The Public Works Department is involved in various projects in the County which require water treatment services. The Public Works Department solicited water treatment service providers, but did not receive any responsive statements of qualification. Due to a lack of responsive firms, CDM Smith, Inc., the current water treatment service provider, was given a sole-source contract for this work and will continue to augment Public Works staff on an as-needed basis. They will be used when in-house expertise is not available. This on-call consultant service agreement shall be in effect for three years.
