The Defense Energy Support Center is seeking sources to determine the availability of potential sources to privatize the applicable electric, water, and wastewater distribution systems at Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR). DSCR-Richmond, located in southern Chesterfield County, Virginia, is a Department of Defense installation occupying just over 600 acres with 160 buildings. The mission of the center and its tenant organizations is to support the needs of the military services worldwide. Support includes the acquisition of material for more than 700,000 items of supply, as well as the maintenance of a wide array of logistics information, technical specifications and data. The value of material it provides to customers is anticipated to reach the $1.4 billion mark this year. The Center and its tenant organization employ over 3,000 workers, ranking DSCR-Richmond among the top ten employers in the Richmond metro area. DSCR-Richmond Electrical: Dominion Power Company (DPC), formally Virginia Power, is the electrical power supplier for DSCR via two 13.2 kV transmission lines from their Bellwood Substation. There is a DPC selector switch outside of the substation that determines which of the two feeders will provide primary power to the DSCR. One single -pole 13.2 kV feeder is tapped off of the incoming line, proceeds to a re-closer circuit protector, and feeds a number of large pad-mounted transformers. The other incoming feeder connects to a main switching station containing two 13.2 kV circuit breakers and manually operated disconnect switches used for isolation during maintenance of the breakers. The breakers connect to two outgoing feeders that serve other major portions of the installation. The distribution system is comprised of a combination of above-ground and underground circuits. Above-ground circuits consist of approximately 51,300 linear feet of 3-phase, 4/0 AWG primary lines; 5,200 linear feet of 3-phase, secondary lines; and 630 linear feet of single-phase lines. Under-ground circuits consist of approximately 2,300 linear feet of three-phase, 2/0 AWG primary lines. The electrical system at DSCR appears to be in reasonably good condition especially since the 1991 upgrade. DSCR-Richmond Water: The county of Chesterfield supplies water to DSCR. The county receives their water from the city of Richmond. There is one main supply point and an alternate point. The main 8 inch supply line feeds to a 700,000-gallon ground storage tank. The alternate water source is a four-inch line from the county. DSCR has two 250,000 gallon elevated storage tanks in addition to the above mentioned 700,000-gallon concrete ground storage tank. All three tanks were constructed in 1942. The distribution system piping totals approximately 97,890 linear feet including mains and service connections all of which are either ductile iron or cast iron. The bulk of the pipe was refurbished/ replaced in 1988, however approximately 25% remains as installed in 1942. Pipe sizes range from 2 to 16 inches in diameter. DSCR-Richmond Wastewater: All domestic wastewater generated on DSCR is transferred to the county of Chesterfield for treatment. The majority of the wastewater system is a gravity flow system. In some of the low-lying areas on the fringes of DSCR, wastewater flows to the lift stations where it is pumped into the gravity system. The wastewater system exits the DSCR through 10-inch lines at two locations. The two lines exiting the installation combine into a 12-inch line that flows east to a county meter station where the wastewater is measured for billing. These lines are off DSCR property but DSCR has an easement within which the wastewater lines are installed. The wastewater collection piping is 1942 vintage, totals approximately 96,000 linear feet including services, and ranges in size from 5 to 12 inches in diameter. Approximately 70% of the pipe was relined in 1988. There are 10 lift stations on DSCR ranging in size from 10 gpm to 207 gpm and are considered to be in good condition. The lift station pumps are relatively small, around 2 hp, with only three of the lift stations being duplex stations and the rest are simplex stations. The Contractor(s) shall furnish all facilities, labor, materials, tools, and equipment necessary to own, maintain and operate the utility system(s) in a safe and reliable condition. The Contractor(s) shall manage the maintenance, repairs, replacement, etc., of the system(s) to ensure continuous, adequate, and dependable service for each Government or tenant connection within the service area.
