The Government of Canada has published a Letter of Interest (LOI) to indicate its ongoing intention to initiate a procurement process for the design, construction, operation and maintenance (DBOM) of a pumping and treatment system for the Department of National Defence, located in Valcartier, Quebec. The proposed contract period is 15 years.

This is a reiteration of a LOI published in July 2016. The letter states that the project's design and construction specifications are currently under development. No solicitation date has been identified. The LOI will not result in the award of any contract, nor result in the creation of any source list; therefore, no responses are being solicited from interested suppliers at this time.

The objective of the project is to develop and implement an approach for managing the alleged discharges of Trichloroethylene (TCE) to the Jacques-Cartier River. Practices related to the use of TCE, a popular industrial solvent, by the federal government and private sector organizations between 1940 and 1990 in the Valcartier area resulted in the presence of this substance in the groundwater, a major concern for human health.
