Request for Qualifications – Town of Perryville, MD




The Town of Perryville, MD (population 4,419), located in Cecil County owns and operates a Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) that consists of a SBR system followed by cloth media filtration and ultra violet disinfection. The WWTP is designed to treat an average daily flow of 1.65 MGD although the current average daily flows are approximately 0.500 MGD.  

The existing facility has experienced periodic O&M problems associated with their NPDES permit to meet ENR permit limits for total nitrogen and the Town has been working with MDE to develop the most appropriate long term solution to this issue. The Town is interested in having an engineering company prepare a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) to evaluate the most cost effective alternatives to upgrade the system with new denitrification filters. 


This RFQ is the first part of the selection process to choose the engineering company that will perform the PER. In this phase of the process, the Town will review the qualifications of engineering submittals in order to choose a maximum of five (5) firms that will receive a Request For Proposal (RFP) to conduct the PER.
