Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin
Request for Proposal: Review of the Potomac River Low Flow Allocation Agreement
Signed by metropolitan area governments and water suppliers in 1978, the agreement provided for an allocation of the Potomac River for drinking water purposes during periods of extreme low river flow. The agreement has served as a backstop for provision of drinkng water and has served well. Changes in the region’s demographics and regulations signal a time for review of this important agreement. The ICPRB is looking for a contractor to conduct this review of the Low Flow Allocation Agreement.
