The purpose of this pre-qualification process is to develop and maintain a list of pre-qualified contractors to perform any/all non-petitioned maintenance work on behalf of the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner (WCWRC) and the various drainage districts under the jurisdiction of the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner.
This list is not intended to be a recommendation of contractors for private work.
The Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office operates under the Michigan Drain Code, Public Act 40 of 1956, as amended. As a result of an update approved by the Legislature, section 280.221 of the Drain Code was amended to require all non-petitioned maintenance work to be bid out, unless utilizing County staff or a Pre-Qualified Contractor. Section 280.221(2) details the requirements that the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner must follow to utilize the Pre-Qualified Contractor list, including but not limited to maintaining the policy, criteria, and list.
