Port of Ilwaco Request for Proposals Boatyard Washwater Improvements - new wastewater treatment system, sanitary sewer line, and connection to the City of Ilwaco sanitary sewer system July 2017 Port of Ilwaco (Port) is issuing this Request for Proposal (RFP) for design and build services relating to a new wastewater treatment system, sanitary sewer line, and connection to the City of Ilwaco sanitary sewer system at the Port’s boatyard facility. Background and Site Description The Port’s boatyard is located at 525 First Avenue South, Ilwaco, in Pacific County, Washington. The boatyard covers an area of 4.3 acres, approximately 20 percent of which is impervious surface (asphalt, concrete, etc.) and 25 percent is buildings. The boatyard has capacity of up to 30 vessels at any given time. Approximately 200 vessels are hauled out of the water per year and about 150 vessels are pressure washed each year. The boatyard has a 50-ton Travelift, a self/full service work yard and dry boat storage facilities. The boatyard mainly consists of four buildings, the port shop, tenant storage area, an enclosed work building, and a pressure wash treatment shed. The port shop building houses mechanical work areas, parts department/shipping receiving, and boatyard related maintenance activities. This building is likely to be re-developed in the future, therefore future connections to the proposed sanitary sewer line would need to be included. The pressure wash treatment shed is adjacent to the pressure wash pad and houses the existing, closed-loop pressure wash treatment system. This building will need to be incorporated in the proposed plans as noted in the following project description. Project Description The Port hereby requests proposals from qualified Bidders interested in providing design-build services at their existing boatyard to design, permit, and install a new wash water treatment system and new sanitary sewer discharge pipe with connection to the City of Ilwaco sanitary sewer system. Currently the boatyard does not have any sewer service. Therefore, this work would include designing new sanitary sewer infrastructure to allow for collection of pretreated pressure wash water discharge along with additional connections to support potential future redevelopment additions including bathrooms and utility sinks at their current shop building. In addition, selection and installation of a new pretreatment pressure wash wastewater collection system would be required at the existing wash pad. In addition, the project will include selection and installation of a new pressure wash wastewater pretreatment system, which is expected to consist of a chemical coagulation or electro-coagulation process to allow for pre-treatment and discharge to the sanitary sewer. Construction of a new sanitary sewer line will require additional permits in order to satisfy any State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) or Joint Aquatic Resources Permit Application (JARPA) regulations. Proposal must include all time and materials to assist the Port with application and fulfillment of all required permits, including time to ensure the City of Ilwaco’s engineer is in agreement with the design and treatment capacity of the new pressure wash pretreatment system. Below is a general list of tasks to be included as part of this project. General Tasks/Deliverables: • Task 1: Detailed design and issued-for-construction plan set for the new sanitary sewer line and pressure wash pretreatment system. - Review regulatory constraints for design and construction. - Determine capacity for pressure wash pretreatment system and future re-development of boatyard to include up to 3 bathrooms and multiple utility wash sinks. - Selection of a new pressure wash pre-treatment system to provide pretreatment of water prior to discharge to sanitary sewer. - Pressure wash treatment system must be capable of treating wash water to applicable water quality pretreatment standards listed in the Washington Boatyard General Permit as well as additional pretreatment requirements of the City of Ilwaco for discharge to their publicly owned treatment works (POTW). - Prepare 30% draft design plans for POI review - Prepare 90% design plans and construction specifications for POI review, incorporating Port comments on the 30% design set. - Incorporate Port comments on the 90% design and finalize design plans and specifications as issued-for-construction. • Task 2: Regulatory Permitting and Compliance - Provide assistance to the Port in application of require permits - Coordinate with the City of Ilwaco’s engineer for design approval - Ensure all SEPA and JARPA requirements are met • Task 3: Construction and installation of sanitary sewer line and pressure wash treatment system - Construct and install new sanitary sewer line and pressure wash treatment system per approved construction plan set - Coordinate construction schedule with the Port to minimize boatyard operation interruptions • Task 4: Design Meeting and Construction Coordination - Assume one in-person meeting with project manager to kick-off draft design - Assume one onsite meeting by project manager to kickoff project construction - Prepare documentation of meeting discussions and distribution of meeting minutes - Project manager participation in one construction progress meeting (one hour, by phone) - Plan to visit site during construction to observe and document construction progress and attend progress meeting in person - Prepare record drawings reflecting as-built conditions at the end of the project.
