Hudson River Contractor Opportunities
2018 Restoration of Watershed Connectivity
The New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC), in cooperation with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYS DEC) Hudson River Estuary Program, is inviting proposals for projects that will help restore aquatic habitat connectivity for herring and eel, and reduce localized flood risks, and improve conditions on Hudson River Estuary tributaries. NEIWPCC is accepting proposals for the following project:
A regional approach to restoring aquatic connectivity and reducing flooding hazards to multiple municipalities. A successful applicant will create a municipal management plan that documents and prioritizes road-stream crossings (culverts and bridges) that have been assessed following the protocol of the North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative (NAACC). In addition to the creation of management plan, conceptual level replacement designs will be produced for at least the top three priority crossings and 100% shovel-ready plans for the top priority crossing. This is per municipality. The ideal project would produce management plans, conceptual level and shovel-ready engineering plans for multiple municipalities.
There is a total of $210,000 available through this RFP. Projects budgets must be between $100,000 and $105,000. Budgets that are under or exceed this range will be disqualified. We anticipate awarding two contracts through this RFP.
Deadline for application is 12:00 PM (noon) on March 30, 2018
