Recommend approval to execute a sole source contract for coliform reagent from IDEXX Laboratories for up to $55,000. The Water Resources Department uses coliform reagents to monitor drinking water quality for testing and analysis of harmful bacteria in the water supply. The total amount spent for 2020 was $32,333.95.  

This is a sole source because the specialized materials are designed for the required testing and IDEXX is used by the State Environmental Protection Division.

S.S. IDEXX Laboratories (Westbrook, ME)(D) $55,000
