Request for Engineer Services PDF Print E-mail



Wythe County, Virginia, is seeking proposals for Engineer Services for the preparation of a Fire Hydrant Flow Rate Analysis for the Wythe County West and Wythe County East Water systems. The combined water systems contain approximately 130 miles of water mains and 525 Fire Hydrants. The analysis will be used to implement a standardized fire hydrant bonnet color coding system to identify available fire hydrant flow.

The scope of work will include but not be limited to the following;

• Assembling simplified water models of each of the tank pressure zones within the system. Water model nodes will be selected to represent high, low, and intermediate points along the water mains to calculate available flow.

• Individual Fire Hydrants will not be modeled, however, a control group of hydrants will be selected and flow tested to confirm the model accuracy.

• Prepare mapping of the system suitable for identifying and color coding fire hydrants according to AWWA and NFPA standards.

Interested offerors are requested to provide five copies of qualifications and references on Standard Form (SF) 330.

Proposals will be received at the office of Stephen D. Bear, Wythe County Administrator, 340 South Sixth Street, Wytheville, VA 24382 until 5:00 P.M. local prevailing time on August 31, 2018.

Wythe County encourages the participation of MBE/WBE type firms.

Wythe County reserves the right to accept or reject any and all proposals.

By Order of the Wythe County Board of Supervisors

Stephen D. Bear, County Administrator
