Downer Meter Vault Design Engineering and Construction Inspection

The Village of Shorewood is seeking proposals from qualified firms to provide design engineering and construction inspection and management services for the replacement or rehabilitation of the Village's Downer Avenue master meter vault.

The Village of Shorewood is a wholesale customer of the Milwaukee Water Works (MWW). The Village owns and maintains a distribution system which dates to the early 1900’s and consists of over 32 miles of watermain ranging in size from 6-inches to 16-inches in diameter supplied through two (2) wholesale meter vaults. The system distributes approximately one million gallons per day of treated Lake Michigan water to just over 3,500 service accounts.

The vaults which contains the primary MWW wholesale meter is located in the intersection of N. Downer and E. Edgewood Avenues. The Village is seeking design options for this meter vault which records indicate was constructed circa 1943, and is original to the Village’s first wholesale water purchase agreement with MWW.  The vault is located under the traffic lane and does not meet current confined space requirements.
