May 21, 2007 -- Prospective bidders are invited to learn more about an upcoming construction contract opportunity to build solids handling and odor control facilities for the Brightwater Treatment Plant north of Seattle, Wash.

The meeting will take place on Thursday, June 14 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Brightwater Project Office, 22509 State Route 9 SE, Woodinville.

King County is investing more than $65 million in a state-of-the-art odor control system at Brightwater as part of its commitment to ensure that the new facilities are good neighbors to the surrounding community, and that there are no detectable odors past the property fence line when the plant begins operating in 2010.

During the meeting, King County's project design and construction management team will provide information on the Brightwater facilities, the project construction schedule, and contracting provisions.

The meeting will also give contractors an opportunity to give the county feedback on certain elements of the contract and schedule before all documents are finalized. A site walk will be offered following the information session.

The separate but concurrent contract will be design-bid-build, which is a traditional contracting method for most large public works projects. The estimated value of the contract package is between $150 to $175 million.

Hoffman Construction Company will continue as general contractor/construction manager (GCCM) on the project segment that includes site management, earthwork and excavation, and building liquids processing facilities to treat wastewater.

The solids handling and odor control contract is expected to bid early August 2007, with an anticipated notice to proceed early January 2008.

The Brightwater treatment system project is the largest expansion of King County's regional wastewater treatment system in more than 40 years. In addition to a plant that will treat 36 million gallons of wastewater per day, the project also includes a 14-mile conveyance tunnel and a 600-foot-deep outfall in Puget Sound.

People enjoy clean water and a healthy environment because of King County's wastewater treatment program. The county's Wastewater Treatment Division protects public health and water quality by serving 17 cities, 17 local sewer utilities and more than 1.4 million residents in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties. Formerly called Metro, the regional clean-water agency now operated by King County has been preventing water pollution for more than 40 years.
