§                     Charlotte Water operates highly specialized and sensitive analytical equipment to monitor water and wastewater quality to protect the public. 

§                     This equipment must be serviced by the manufacturer’s certified technicians to maintain warranty coverage, as well as the integrity and reliability of analytical data.

§                     Waiver of a competitive solicitation process for services may be granted on a limited basis when deemed appropriate and in the city’s best interest. A waiver has been approved for these services because extended warranty coverage is only offered by the equipment manufacturer.
