REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS are being sought for the Groff Farm Floodplain Restoration Plan beginning March 9, 2018 and due no later than April 23, 2018.
The project is to occur in two distinct phases. Phase 1 will include two main tasks: Task 1 includes the survey, design, and permitting for the proposed floodplain restoration. Task 2 includes planning, design, and construction of agricultural BMPs as needed for full compliance with agricultural water quality requirements. Task 2 is being undertaken by TeamAg Inc. and is not a component of this RFP. This RFP seeks services for Task 1 of Phase 1 only. The Township will seek an additional grant for Phase 2 of the project which is the construction of the floodplain restoration design.
The purpose of the project is to complete Task 1 of Phase 1 which includes, assessing the approximately 1,900 linear foot stream corridor in the Groff's Farm property and develop a plan to restore the floodplain by removing legacy sediments, restoring the natural channel to a more functional and stable condition, as well as, establishing a riparian corridor of native grasses, shrubs, and trees. The existing driveway and dam will remain in place in order to provide access from the property dwelling to Beaver Valley Pike (SR222). The scope will include a survey of the project site, design and permitting.
