The City of East Point is soliciting sealed bids from financially stable, qualified Chemical Providers who are interested in entering into a multi-year contract for the procurement of blended Poly-Orthophosphate for use in the treatment of potable water for human consumption.

The blended Poly-Orthophosphate the City has been using and desires has a ratio of sixty-five percent (65%) Poly-Phosphate to thirty-five percent (35%) Ortho-Phosphate.  The product is known as SLI-5230.  SLI-5230 is a clear, water white, odorless, non-corrosive solution.  It is a proprietary blend of poly and orthophosphates, each having different qualities, which provide scale, sequestration, and corrosion control for potable water.  The product is conveniently packaged in fifty-five (55) gallon drums.  Water treated with SLI-5230 is considered safe for human consumption.  The City will give full award consideration to other brands of blended Poly-Orthophosphates as long as they meet the City’s specifications.

The Selected Provider will be solely responsible for transportation, delivery, and off-loading of the requested item to be made to the City’s Water Treatment Plant.  The City’s Water Treatment Plant is located at 2001 Headland Avenue, East Point, Georgia 30344.
