The Regional Water Authority (RWA), through the regional Water Efficiency Program (WEP) is seeking support for the development of a Sacramento Regional Commercial, Industrial and Institutional (CII) Dedicated Irrigation Meter (DIM) Landscape Measurement Study (Study). Local water suppliers in the Sacramento region are interested in creating landscape water budgets for CII customers with DIMs to help customers better manage outdoor water use and to meet compliance requirements of Senate Bill 606/Assembly Bill 1668. This Request for Proposal (RFP) focuses on the first step in creating a CII DIM landscape budget: measuring the landscape area (square feet) irrigated by each dedicated irrigation meter through an analysis of aerial imagery. The Study budget is $100,000 and 100% funded through California’s Proposition 1 Implementation Grant Program. There may be additional opportunities for more detailed analysis, expansion or ground truth/site surveying of individual water supplier’s CII DIMs landscape areas pending the availability of additional local funding to supplement the regional study scope and funding.
To be considered, each Contractor submitting an RFP proposal must provide an electronic copy of the RFP proposal via email sent directly to RWA’s principal contact by the filing deadline of October 14, 2022 by 4:00 P.M. Pacific Time. Late submissions will not be considered. The RWA reserves the right to reject any or all submittals.
