English term or phrase: Bidding a 12 million dollar water system plant
The question is in terms of the active participle "bidding". Does it mean that a bid is being tendered or that invitations for bids are being made for the water treatment plant?

Thanks! Please answer only of you are sure of what you are saying.

Explanation:
When you say "Bidding" it means that yu have to submit in that price range and following the bidding requests.

"Tendering", means that eveything is "open" : the cheapest will win it.

La licitación de una planta del sistema de agua...


Explanation:
...(potable) de 12 mmd (miilones de dólares).

Potable agrego si es potibilizadora, en español jamás faltaría.

o "planta potibilizadora"

Y de no ser así, la otra posibilidad sería "tratadora de aguas servidas o residuales".

Tu pregunta es "bidding", "licitación" cubre todos los casos como pones la frase, pero podrá cambiar según lo que venga antes.
