In response to its Request for Qualifications for an independent third party review of its drainage and levee systems, LID 19 received eight proposals from independent engineering firms from throughout the United States. Of the initial 8 firms, LID 19 went through a detailed review to narrow the field down to a limited number of firms meeting the criteria set forth in the Request for Qualifications. As of today, detailed interviews with the final firms have been conducted, and a final recommendation will be presented to the full Board at its December 19, 2017, meeting. Once the final recommendation has been made, an announcement of the firm selected will be noted here.
