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.

 We engineer solutions that can accomplish what only a regional entity can do.

Come Work With Us

Metropolitan regularly solicits competitive bids from local construction contractors for our public works capital improvement projects. With $250 million budgeted annually, our capital improvement projects include everything from pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe rehabilitation, pipeline relining, repair and rehabilitation of existing facilities, seismic upgrades and repairs, and upgrades to Colorado River Aqueduct facilities. We also solicit competitive bids from manufacturers and vendors for purchase of complex, specially designed equipment such as large-diameter steel pipes, hydraulic gates, specialty valves and pumps, and power transformers.

Minimum Requirements

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.
