RE: Regional Stormwater Management

       Program 2017-2021 Projects


DATE:      January 1, 2017

Dear Potential District Vendors:

Thank you for your interest in assisting the District with the implementation of our 2017-2021 Regional Stormwater Management Program.  The format of the 5-Year Program was designed to provide more information to our vendor community, including Small Business Enterprise (SBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) companies that participate in the District’s Business Opportunity Program, to allow you to better plan your pursuits. This report is organized to highlight planned Regional Stormwater Management Program projects and provides key schedule milestones (Design Award and Construction Award). It is our hope that you will find this more succinct format useful in your pursuit of District work over the next several years.

The table above is updated monthly during the year to reflect the updated status of these projects


The District’s capital investment over the next five years is substantial and will require the work of many to achieve. To assist in delivering this aggressive program, the District has put into place numerous workflows and process improvements.  Over the next five years, these improvements will support expedited Requests-for-Proposals (RFPs), preparation of bid documents, and streamline construction administration of our critical projects.


We encourage all potential vendors to visit our website ( to obtain critical information about how to become registered with the District’s Business Opportunity Program as an SBE, MBE, or WBE, and review the current SBE, MBE, WBE registry for potential teaming partners at:

In addition, vendors may contact the following District staff for additional information on projects contained within the SW:

Frank P. Greenland, P.E., Director of Watershed Programs,

Vicky McCauley, P.E. Stormwater Design Manager,

The District looks forward to the opportunity to partner with many of you in the upcoming year, and the resulting successful implementation of our program. The continued investment in our plants and infrastructure is key to maintaining our community and the sustainability of our environment and Lake Erie for future generations to enjoy.
