Water Cross Connection Control Survey




Water Cross Connection Control Survey


Request for Quotations

The City of Surrey intends to conduct a cross connection survey of all Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) properties in order to minimize the risk of contaminants originating from private properties to enter City’s water system as well as private plumbing works.  There are approximately 4,000 ICI properties within the City, and currently the City has very limited information on the potential cross connection locations as well as existing Backflow Preventers (BFPs) installed in these properties. Under the City’s Cross Connection Survey Program, the City will hire a Contractor(s) to survey all these ICI properties

In this project (#1220-005), the City has selected about 900 ICI properties to be surveyed based on their hazard level and location in the City.  The City intends to survey these properties within 3 years, commencing January 2020.

The specifications of Goods and scope of Services includes, but is not limited to the following components:

  • Survey Preparation
  • Survey/Inspection of the Properties
  • Survey Report
  • Survey Follow Up Questions

In order to accommodate the specific targets of this program, the Contractor should demonstrate the following:

  1. Should have five years experience of delivering similar services related to cross connection control and/or plumbing works.  List all relevant projects within the last five (5) years, including project description, project size, project clients, etc.
