BBNEP Stormwater Design Engineering Service contract awards
Last update: January 15, 2014
In partnership with the municipalities in the Buzzards Bay watershed, and as part of our municipal grant program, the Buzzards Bay NEP periodically seeks engineering services to assist the towns develop stormwater treatment designs to reduce stormwater volumes and pollutants contributing to water quality impairments in Buzzards Bay and its surrounding watershed.
Whenever we seek such services, we post a Request for Responses (RFR) on the CommPass website. We do not maintain a bidders list for projects. The BBNEP oversees and administers these engineering contracts on behalf of the towns.

In partnership with the Town of Wareham’s Community and Economic Development Authority (CEDA), the Buzzards Bay NEP used $20,000 in federal funds to hire Green Seal Environmental, Inc. to develop stormwater treatment designs for the Main Street drainage system in the Town of Wareham, MA to reduce stormwater-related pollutants discharging to the Wareham River estuary on the Wankinco River. The ultimate goal of the completed project is to help reduce bacteria discharges to the upper estuary, which will help contribute to possible reductions in the area or duration of current closures to shellfish resources. The Buzzards Bay NEP staff worked with Green Seal, Wareham Public Works, and CEDA, to decide upon the most practical stormwater management solutions, given the site conditions and drainage area. This project was completed in 2013. Go to our Wareham Main Street Stormwater page for more information on this project.
