Request for Qualifications - Development of the 2023 Triangle Regional Water Supply Plan

Responses Due by 3:00 p.m. on October 14, 2022

Triangle J Council of Governments (TJCOG) is soliciting Statements of Qualifications (SOQs) from consultants to provide professional services to develop the Triangle Water Supply Partnership’s 2023 Triangle Regional Water Supply Plan.

The Triangle Water Supply Partnership (TWSP) is a local government led initiative to ensure a sustainable, safe and secure water supply for the Triangle Region without compromising the ability of downstream communities to meet their own water supply needs. The TWSP was created under a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) in 2018 and includes the towns of Apex, Cary, Hillsborough, Holly Springs, Morrisville and Pittsboro, Chatham County, Harnett County, Johnston County, Orange County, Orange Water and Sewer Authority (OWASA), and the cities of Durham and Raleigh. The TWSP continues the excellent and award-winning collaboration on regional water supply planning projects begun by its predecessor, the Jordan Lake Partnership (JLP).

Previously, the Partnership 1) developed a Triangle Regional Water Supply Plan (TRWSP) which included Volume 1 (May 2012), Volume 2 (October 2014) and an Executive Summary (October 2014) with long range forecasts of the JLP members and coordination with the North Carolina Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (NCDENR) to pursue Round 4 of Jordan Lake allocations; 2) updated NCDENR’s Cape Fear River Basin Model; and 3) developed a Compendium of Future Water Supply Sources (October 2016) to serve as a foundation for future updates to the TRWSP. 

The 2023 Project is expected to result in a Regional Water Supply Plan that includes the potential Jordan Lake Round 5 requests.  The Project is also expected to result in a final presentation and graphics to easily summarize the demand & supply conclusions for the overall TWSP and individual TWSP Partners.
