Okaloosa County’s Water and Sewer Department is seeking to win a 50-year contract to operate the water distribution and wastewater collection systems at Eglin Air Force Base.

County commissioners last week approved submitting the bid by the Feb. 19 deadline.

“This is probably the most massive, most complex project I’ve been involved with,” Water and Sewer Director Jeff Littrell told the board.

Littrell and his staff are working with Constantine Engineering and Environmental Services Group to draft the proposal.

Okaloosa already handles wastewater treatment for Eglin.

Still, the scope of the latest proposal is huge, and is expected to come with multiple volumes of documents.

“Eglin Air Force Base is a very large base. It occupies a lot of land,” Littrell said.
