The San Mateo Resource Conservation District (RCD) is searching for an experienced team of engineers and technical experts to develop complete designs for four water storage reservoirs and associated water distribution systems in the Butano Watershed. This work will allow agricultural water users to dramatically reduce or eliminate stream pumping rates during low flow periods, ensure water security for farming operations, and protect stream flows for salmonids by addressing low streamflow in Butano Creek.

A pre-proposal site visit will be held at the project sites on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm. Attendance at the pre-proposal meeting is mandatory for all prospective proposers. If planning to attend, confirm with Andrew Hall by email to by 12-7-2020. Meeting location will be in Pescadero at the parking lot across from the gas station (click for directions from Half Moon Bay). Once all parties have arrived, the RCD will lead prospective bidders to the project locations. Please note that due to COVID-19 the RCD will require that all attendees adhere to San Mateo County health protocols.

Applicants must submit proposals to the RCD via email or other digital means to Andrew Hall at no later than 5 PM on January 6, 2021. Any proposal that is not submitted or submitted without all the required information will be considered incomplete and not accepted.
