Sealed Bids for construction of Topsham Filtration Facility will be received by the Brunswick and Topsham Water District at 266 River Road, Topsham, Maine until 10 AM local time, Wednesday, March 18, 2020 and at that time and place bids will be publicly opened and read aloud. Bids submitted after this time will not be accepted. Sealed bids must be clearly marked “Bid for the Brunswick & Topsham Water District, Topsham Filtration Facility Project”.


The work involves construction of a new 45,000 square foot facility adjacent to the Jackson Treatment Facility at 266 River Road in Topsham. The facility will house the District’s administration, distribution and treatment operations. The construction of the new stand-alone facility will occur while the neighboring facility remains in service. The main treatment process includes three stages of pressure filtration. Resin manufacturers for the primary process have already been prequalified by the District to facilitate Contractors’ negotiations with vendors. The project includes coordinating the changeover of controls and water production from the old facility to the new facility. It is anticipated that both facilities will be in service at the same time to facilitate debugging and commissioning of the new facility. The old facility will be torn down under a separate contract.
