Firefighting Water System and Potable Water System
Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point, North Carolina

This is a Sources Sought/Request for Information only. This is NOT a Solicitation Announcement, nor is it a
Request for Proposal. This request does not obligate the Government in any contract award.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Wilmington District, is conducting research to determine the market capabilities of potential contractors to construct a firefighting water system and potable water system to service the wharves at the terminal. The scope of work may be as follows but is not limited to:

Phase 1 - Fire Fighting Water System
Purpose is to provide 3,000 gpm of water at 20 psi to each of the three wharves at the MOTSU site. The requirement is to provide 3,000gpm of water in addition to 7,000gpm from boats, for a total of 10,000 gpm of water flow at 20 psi. In order to provide 3,000 gpm of water at the wharves, a new piping system is being proposed along with a 720,000 gallon elevated storage tank. A booster station may also be included to convey water from the existing County waterline to the elevated storage tank. Approximate length of new piping is estimated to be between 10,000 LF and 15,000 LF.
Phase 2 - Potable Water System
Purpose is to replace the ground water storage tank, pump house with firefighting pumps, and ancillary equipment to meet demands of the site. It is estimated the size of the replacement water storage tank is 300,000 gallons.
This project will have complete plans and specs for advertising. This is not a design build.
The magnitude of construction for this project will be between $5,000,000.00 and $10,000,000.00.
