Project Name: Locks and Dams Assessments and Improvements
Project Location: Muskingum River
Project Number: DNR-160070
Scope of Project: Project Overview A. Project Description Professional engineering services are being requested to assess and rehabilitate a series of dams with navigation locks along the Muskingum River Parkway owned by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and located in Muskingum, Morgan, and Washington Counties. Services being requested include initial site assessments, preliminary and final design services, construction administration for rehabilitation projects, and development of Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) & Operation, Maintenance and Inspection (OM&I) manuals for each of the lock and dam structures. The system consists of Lock and Dams No. 2 through No. 11, which are regulated by the ODNR Dam Safety Program as Class II structures. These structures are part of a river navigation system that was constructed in the 1840s. Many of these structures have unique historical characteristics which have been maintained since their original construction. Previous preliminary design and investigation services have been conducted for these structures, but additional investigation, assessment and design work is necessary to develop a comprehensive master plan and plan for improvements. The intent of this project is to develop a Facility Master Plan for the entire system in conjunction with ODNR’s strategic facility plans. This will be a phased project with an expedited design and construction schedule in order implement Interim Risk Reduction Measures (IRRMs) where necessary to address issues of immediate concern. Prioritizing the design and construction of IRRMs will allow for incremental improvements at each facility before funding is available for more comprehensive risk reduction measures. Construction would be undertaken to ensure public safety and long-term performance as well as functional and aesthetic improvements as identified in the strategic facility plan. Construction would be phased to ensure the best use of public funds and the least disruption of the operation of the overall facility. Familiarity with the latest innovative dam safety design alternatives and construction technologies will be necessary in order to expedite construction and minimize adverse recreational and economic impacts during rehabilitation of the lock and dams. Through this selection process, ODNR contemplates engaging an Architect/Engineer (A/E) to provide master planning/assessment and construction documents for all improvements on the system. The initial Phase I would include master planning and assessment of the river navigation system and approximately $1 million in improvements including implementing immediate IRRMs. Phase II would include additional site investigation and completion of the selected comprehensive risk reduction measures at particular structures or the rest of the system. All firms submitting a statement of qualifications will be eligible for award of contract for master planning/assessment and Phase I and Phase II work. However, the selected A/E’s agreement would initially address master planning/assessment and may be extended and amended to add Phase I and Phase II work as capital appropriations are available in future Capital Bill legislation. B. Scope of Services The scope of services may include, but is not limited to; topographical surveys of the dam site, including upstream and downstream areas; performance of geotechnical investigations of the dam and appurtenances to evaluate stability, seepage, and structural condition; underwater inspection; performance of hydrologic, hydraulic and flood routing analyses for adequacy of and to provide alternatives for meeting required discharge/storage capacities; recommendations of alternatives for rehabilitation of dams with associated cost estimates; applying for and obtaining all applicable permits and approvals; completion of preliminary and final design documents for construction; performance of construction administration services; and preparation of EAPs and OM&I manuals. All work shall be performed in compliance with Ohio Dam Safety Rules and Regulations. Participate in the Encouraging Growth, Diversity & Equity (EDGE) Program as required by statute and the Agreement. During the construction period, provide not less than 40 hours (excluding travel time) on-site construction administration services each week, including (1) attendance at progress meetings, (2) a written field report of each site visit, (3) on-site representation comprised of the A/E and its consultant staff involved in the primary design of the project, all having relevant and appropriate types of construction administration experience.
