Lesotho again seeks aquatic monitoring, flow guides for Metolong Dam

The government of Lesotho invites expressions of interest from consultants to establish an aquatic monitoring system and environmental flow guidelines and procedures for the proposed Metolong Dam on the Phuthitsana River near Metolong, Lesotho. Responses are due March 2.

Lesotho sought proposals in September 2008 for similar consultant services under a financing agreement with the Millennium Challenge Corp. (MCC), an international development agency created by the United States. (HNN 9/17/09)

Metolong, a Lesotho Lowlands Water Supply project, would supply domestic and industrial water to six lowland districts of Lesotho. MCC and the government of Lesotho previously selected Mott MacDonald Ltd. of the United Kingdom to update a project feasibility study.

The current solicitation seeks to establish a comprehensive aquatic bio-monitoring system and to facilitate development of capacity within the government to collect data to improve the process of informing environmental flow requirements of Metolong Dam.

Expressions of interest are due by 2 p.m. March 2 to the address below in a sealed envelope labeled �Establishment of Aquatic Monitoring System and Environmental Flow Guidelines and Procedures.� E-mail and fax submissions will not be accepted.
