Construction Services & Engineered Equipment Procurement
Metropolitan plans and builds for the Southland’s future. That has been our legacy since our formation nearly 100 years ago. It began with the construction of the Colorado River Aqueduct, considered to be one of the country’s civil engineering wonders. It carries on today with the Regional Recycled Water Project, which could become one of the largest water recycling projects in the country.
As regional growth, climate change, and other challenges place new demands on our aging and complex water infrastructure, we take pride in making infrastructure investments to maintain reliability.
Project Labor Agreement: Our Investment in SoCal Workforce
Metropolitan continues our long-standing efforts to support and improve our communities by working together with labor unions and construction contractors in a new collective bargaining agreement. Metropolitan’s Project Labor Agreement covers a majority of the district’s construction projects over the next five years under its Capital Investment Plan.
This agreement also applies to all construction related to the Pure Water Southern California recycled water project. In addition, it ensures the nearly $1 billion in construction projects over the next five years are completed with the region’s highly trained workforce, while providing opportunities for smaller businesses that typically bid on lower value and less complex construction contracts.
As the nation’s largest water wholesaler, we typically manage 50 public works construction and engineering contracts totally more than $300 million. With a delivery and treatment system that spans six counties, our projects can be found in communities across Southern California. We have construction and rehabilitation projects that focus on upgrading infrastructure, improvements to water treatment, addition of green energy like solar, as well as contracts through our professional services group who solicit competitive bids to support these and our capital improvement projects.
This program is intended to provide our prospective contractors with an understanding of our high standard of construction requirement, strict compliance procedures and deadlines, specification and submittal requirements, as well as to provide a list of upcoming construction projects and schedule.
Building A Network
It benefits all of Southern California to maintain a consistent dialogue and strong network with our Southern California contractor community. This program brings opportunities for mutual collaboration and provide transparency throughout the entire construction and procurement process.
How It Works
Metropolitan will hold a series of quarterly construction workshops that will provide opportunities to effectively work together and share information about upcoming contracting opportunities.

We engineer solutions that can accomplish what only a regional entity can do.
Most of our solicitations require that prime contractors possess valid California contractor license(s) and have a minimum required level of experience and insurance. Contractors also may be required to attend a mandatory pre-bid conference as noted in the Notice Inviting Bid.
All Metropolitan construction contracts over $100,000 include a small and/or disabled veteran business enterprise subcontractor usage requirement, unless waived.
