The Long Prairie Water District (LPWD, the District) requests Statements of Qualifications (SOQs) from firms (Proposers) interested in providing professional engineering services to the District to prepare a Water System Master Plan (the Master Plan). To be considered, an interested party must submit a SOQ in accordance with the requirements set forth in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ).
The Master Plan is intended to provide the District with a picture of its future water supply needs; identify improvements necessary to meet predicted needs for water supply, storage and distribution; and develop a capital improvement plan for efficient implementation of water system improvements. The Proposer will need to project future water demands, develop planning and analysis criteria, analyze the water system, and identify recommended capital improvements.
The Master Plan is being conducted in coordination with the District’s participation in Regional Water Supply Planning work, which includes evaluation of the technical and economic feasibility of water supply alternatives to serve the District and its Partners. The final Master Plan should identify and prioritize District infrastructure improvements needed to integrate the preferred regional water supply alternative as the District’s future source of supply.

The Proposer identified as the most qualified through the evaluation process will be selected for contract negotiations.
