Tampa Bay Water Receives Five Statements of Qualifications for Reservoir Renovation Project

Tampa Bay Water has received Statements of Qualifications from five design-build teams representing more than 40 firms interested in designing, building, monitoring and maintaining the C.W. Bill Young Regional Reservoir Renovation.

The Statements of Qualification (SOQ) submittal is the first step in a two-stage procurement process to select a preferred design-builder to renovate Tampa Bay Water's 15.5-billion gallon, off-stream reservoir. The SOQs will be screened in August; those that pass the screening will be fully evaluated by a selection committee.

Tampa Bay Water's regional reservoir is being renovated due to larger-than-expected cracks that formed in the soil cement erosion control layer lining the reservoir's embankment interior. The cracking requires a permanent fix in order for the facility to be used as intended.
