    LCBP Issues an RFP for Training at Wastewater Treatment Facilities

    Grand Isle, VT – The Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals (RFP) for services to operate a program of technical assistance in asset management, targeting governing boards, managers, and operators of small and medium-sized (less than 2.0 MGD) publicly-owned treatment plants in New York and Vermont. Up to $380,000 is available for this project.

    Eric Howe, Technical Coordinator for the Lake Champlain Basin Program, said “The funds will be used to help wastewater treatment plant operators in the Lake Champlain Basin with facility management and planning. For example, facility managers will be working to reduce operating costs and phosphorus pollution to the Lake. They might also seek long term management strategies for the operation and maintenance of the facilities, including budgeting for upgrades.”

    The successful applicant will deliver asset management training opportunities to small and medium sized wastewater treatment facilities in the New York and Vermont portions of the Lake Champlain watershed. The successful applicant will work with at least twelve facilities to develop asset management plans tailored to each facility, and provide assistance with implementation of these asset management plans.

    This work is applicable to Chapter 4 of the LCBP’s long-term management plan – Opportunities for Action: An Evolving Plan for the Future of the Lake Champlain Basin. This project is supported by funds awarded to the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) by the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) in support of the Lake Champlain Basin Program.

    This Request for Proposals is available from the Lake Champlain Basin Program website. Proposals are due May 12, 2016 by 4:30 p.m. To receive a copy of the RFP via U.S. Postal Service or for further information, contact the Lake Champlain Basin Program office at (802) 372-3213 or toll free at (800) 468-LCBP in New York and Vermont.
