General Description of Requirement
The RFP concerns the City of Vancouver’s interest in procuring bioretention rehabilitation services.
Details of the City’s objectives and requirements to which the RFP relates are set out in Part B of the RFP.
Green Rainwater Infrastructure (GRI) is a suite of rainwater management tools that use both engineered and nature based solutions to protect, restore and mimic the natural water cycle.
GRI is an important component of the City’s sewer and drainage network and ensuring these systems are functioning is critical to the health, safety and well-being of the community. Proper grading and infiltration helps ensure these systems meet their infrastructure service objectives to:
- Improve water quality
- Increase flood resilience
- Reduce quantity of water entering the pipe system
Beyond rainwater management, GRI assets provide numerous co-benefits to the community such as urban cooling, increased tree canopy, and enhanced biodiversity, all of which contribute to a variety of city strategies, goals and targets.
Bioretention is one of the most common types of GRI in the City of Vancouver. Since 2007, the city has built 152 bioretention bulges, gardens and bioswales across the city. In 2018, the City of Vancouver established a Green Infrastructure Implementation Branch, which has further increased the number of bioretention landscapes in the City. No formal maintenance program has been in place to care for these assets.
