The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Program Contracting Activity Central (PCAC) anticipates soliciting proposals and subsequently awarding a single, Firm-Fixed-Price contract using DESIGN-BUILD selection procedures for the Correction of the Campus Water System at the Sacramento VA Medical Center (VAMC).
The purpose of this water tower and reservoir project is to provide a sufficient water supply for the current and future expansion at the Sacramento VAMC. The Sacramento VAMC is a 43 building campus covering approximately 617,659 square feet. The water pressure and emergency water storage supply are required to be upgraded. It has been determined that upsizing the existing 6 water loop to an 8 and implementing an elevated water tank will solve pressure issues and hold a 96 hour emergency water supply. The scope of this project covers the entire Sacramento VAMC campus that is currently being serviced by three 8 waterlines coming from the south part of the campus along Peter McCuen Blvd. These lines are reduced to 6 inches inside the campus and form a loop around the campus. Each of the buildings are connected to the main loop by smaller lines, ranging from Â¾ to 6 . There is also a 40,000 gallon above ground emergency water storage tank that is not connected to the loop. Fire suppression, hydrants, domestic water, irrigation, ect., are also tied into the main loop.
