The Water Survey of Canada (WSC) Branch of Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) maintain hundreds of hydrometric stations along rivers and streams for the purpose of collecting hydrometric data. Many of these installations were constructed more than three decades ago. A recent review identified design and/or safety deficiencies at many of the stations, and identified many others that were obsolete: 

ECCC requires various construction services to upgrade, or in some cases, decommission hydrometric stations, or parts of stations. The services required will vary depending on the upgrades necessary at each station. In general, the work is anticipated to include the supply of materials, labour, equipment and travel for the following services but not limited to:

  • Installing shallow foundations;
  • Erecting new (pre-fabricated) towers;
  • Excavating and installing tie-back anchorages;
  • Supplying cables and other hardware;
  • Stringing, tensioning and testing suspended cables;
  • Installing ladders, raised platforms, signage, aircraft warning markers and other details;
  • Decommissioning (removal and disposal) of wells, weirs, shelters, cableways, etc.

Typically, ECCC hydrometric stations consist of the following basic water monitoring facilities and components:

  • A cableway crossing of the creek or river
  • A shallow large diameter well and associated intake pipes
  • A small walk-in shelter or cabinet on a stand
  • An in-stream control structure or weir
  • Survey benchmarks
  • Miscellaneous stairs, fences, guards, catwalks and windmills

Further the supplier must own the Intellectual Property rights to the design of the vessel and offer the IP to CCG as anoption.  The vessel must be inherently passively self-righting in design and capability. By self-righting it is meant that the vessel must be specifically designed to avoid capsize, while still having the ability to re-right itself, in any operational condition, from any roll angle.  By passively self-righting it means that the vessel must not depend on an inflatable bag to meet the self-righting requirements. To meet this requirement the vessel must have features that are enhanced above the minimum needed if the vessel was required only to meet intact stability requirements.  The vessels self-righting capability must incorporate the following design elements:    Enhanced static stability.  Enhanced reserve buoyancy.  Enhanced water-tight integrity through windows, doors and hatches.  Enhanced crew protection through personal-securing arrangements both internally and on deck.  Repel and or shed water off the exterior of the vessel (self-bailing).  Mechanical and electrical enhancements, which place the main engines in neutral idle beyond a pre-determined angle of heel.  Back up throttle and gear control systems (get home feature).  Main engines must remain operational during a self-righting event.  Minimize down-flooding through exterior ventilation during a self-righting event.   The vessels intact stability must meet or exceed Transport Canada requirements set out in TP 7301  Stability, Subdivision and Load Line Standards (STAB 6).  The vessel must withstand the flooding of any single compartment.  Mission requirements include frequent operation in confined waters (such as marinas) and shallow depths (such as flats and near beaches).  As such it is required that the vessel have a length less than 15 metres, a beam less than 5 metres and a draft less than 1.5 metres.    The following defined environmental conditions are applicable for the area of operation.    Calm: Winds up to 15 knots and seas up to 1 metre.   Moderate: Winds between 15 and 35 knots andseas from 1 to 2.5 metres.   Severe: Winds from 35 to 50 knots and seas 2.5 to 3.5 metres.

The vessel must achieve a maximum speed of at least 40 knots. The vessel must operate continuously at an efficient cruising speed of at least 25 knots.  The vessel must operate for moderate continuous (or intermittent) periods (approximately 60 minutes) at idle or dead slow speeds without any significant reduction in responsiveness, acceleration or reliability of the propulsion system. Propulsion performance must not be affected by varying electrical loads related to normal use of onboard electrical systems.  The vessel must operate for extended continuous (or intermittent) periods of up to 6 hours under high engine load while engaged in towing or similar missions.  The vessel must accelerate quickly from stop or from dead slow speeds sufficiently to manoeuvre to avoid rapidly developing hazardous situations such as when maneuvering in rough seas or high current as well as when operating in close quarters situations in high winds.  The vessel must decelerate from maximum speed tofull crash stop without any subsequent reduction in responsiveness or reliability of vessel components or systems, including the propulsion system.  All stated performance requirements must be met with the vessel carrying the standard crew complement and equipment and fuel status ranging from full fuel down to 10% fuel.  The vessel must have an operating range at Maximum Speed (based on fuel consumption rates and fuel capacity volume) of at least 150 nautical miles plus 10% fuel reserve.   The vessel must have an operating range at Efficient Cruising Speed (based on fuel consumption rates and fuel capacity volume) of at least 250 nautical miles plus 10% fuel reserve.  The vessel must provide a get home capability (such as ability to transit for extended periods on a single engine).   The vessel must be capable of refuelling at sea from other vessels in calm conditions.  The vessel must provide an endurance of at least 18 hours at sea, operating as a dayboat, that is, overnight onboardaccommodation is not required.  When manoeuvring and transiting at low speeds and/or in close quarters situations the vessel must maintain effective steerage, directional control and positive manoeuvring control at speeds as low as 2-3 knots in winds up to 40 knots (from any orientation relative to the vessel).  The vessel must turn within its own length in calm conditions.  The vessel must come about, turning upwind or downwind, in all defined environmental conditions so as to maintain a safe attitude with respect to wind and sea.  In conditions up to moderate, the vessel must hold station to within approximately 1 metre relative to a fixed or floating object (for situations such as recovering a person from the water), with favourable orientation to the prevailing conditions.  In severe conditions, the vessel must hold station to within approximately 2 metres relative to a fixed or floating object, with favourable orientation to the prevailing conditions.  The vessel must be driven by twin-diesel engines driving either water jets or conventional shaft propellers with twin rudders.  If a propeller drive system is part of the design of the vessel in order to meet other design requirements the propellers must be protected from damage due to log strikes. In case of partial failure, the vessel must transit on one engine in order to return to a place of safety.  The vessels control station must be positioned to provide a 360 degree view with a minimum of blind sectors.  The operator must also be able to clearly view the rescue zones, on both sides of the vessel, for the purpose of personnel recovery.      The vessel is to be provided with a means to facilitate firefighting. Where a portable pump is used it must have the ability to receive supply sea water without the necessity of having hoses over the side, and must have self-priming arrangements.    The vessel must accommodate and be certified for a crew complement up to 4 plus 4 supernumerary personnel.    In emergency situations the vessel must accommodate up to 20 survivors and be safely operated for return to port.  Additionally, it must accommodate a minimum of one injured survivor in a stretcher.  The stretcher must be able to be secured inside the vessel cabin and have direct access managed by no more than the vessels complement, minus the operator.  The stretcher arrangements must be configured to allow CCG Rescue Specialists to perform Advanced First Aid and Life Support as per CCG protocols.    The vessel must beconfigured so as to provide a low-freeboard recovery zone to recover persons or objects from the water, on both sides of the vessel.

An Advance Contract Award Notice (ACAN) allows departments and agencies to post a notice, for no less than fifteen (15) calendar days, indicating to the supplier community that it intends to award a good, service or construction contract to a pre-identified contractor. If no other supplier submits, on or before the closing date, a Statement of Capabilities that meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, the contracting authority may then proceed with the award.  However, should a Statement of Capabilities be found to meet the requirements set out in the ACAN, then the contracting authority will proceed to a full tendering process.  Suppliers who consider themselves fully qualified and available to provide the services/goods described herein, may submit a statement of capabilities in writing to the contact person identified in this Notice on or before the closing date of this Notice. The statement of capabilities must clearly demonstrate how the supplier meets the advertised requirements.  The PWGSC file number, the contracting officer's name and the closing date of the ACAN must appear on the outside of the envelope in block letters or, in the case of a facsimile transmission, on the covering page.  The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.  Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.
