Project Name: Lake White Reservoir Water Transfer
Project Location: Lake White State Park
Project Number: DNR-180017
Scope of Project: A. Project Description Professional engineering services are being requested to initially provide an engineering review, assessment, and recommendations for water movement, transfer and seepage in the Lake White reservoir and groundwater system at Lake White State Park, owned by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and located in Pike County. The selected firm may also provide preliminary design, final design and construction administration as improvements and interim measures are identified and funded. Lake White Dam is a Class I high-hazard potential structure. Lake White Dam consists of an earthen embankment with concrete spillway and is 39 feet tall and 4200 feet in length and impounds 6015 acre-feet of water at normal summer pool. The principal spillway is a 128-foot-long concrete weir with two adjustable gates. SR 104 stretches along the crest of the dam, with a bridge above the concrete spillway. Construction of Lake White Dam was completed in 1935. Phase I dam improvements were completed in 2006. In 2015, construction of Phase II dam improvements commenced. Phase II improvements included installation of a new lake drain system, roller compacted concrete overtopping protection system, a new bridge deck over the spillway, and a chemical grout curtain in front of the existing spillway system. Approximately one month after substantial completion of the dam improvements, seepage issues were observed downstream of the dam and significant water loss was detected through reservoir elevation monitoring. ODNR is in the process of addressing seepage issues by installing filter berm improvements on the downstream toe of the dam but significant water loss persists. Through this selection process, ODNR contemplates engaging an Architect/Engineer (A/E) to provide engineering review, assessment, recommendations, preliminary design and construction documents. The initial Phase I would include engineering review, assessment, and recommendations as a study and report. This study and report will utilize the latest technology and analysis to identify and resolve water losses from within the Lake White reservoir system. ODNR encourages proposing firms to identify partnering opportunities and team oriented strategies to provide the department with the most effective and efficient means and resources to restore normal operating pool elevations within the reservoir system. ODNR expects an initial report from the selected firm within four to six months of an executed agreement. Future phases, if implemented, would include completion of selected recommendations. All firms submitting a statement of qualifications will be eligible for award of contract for Phase I work which may be extended and amended to add additional phases of work as capital appropriations are available in future Capital Bill legislation. Interested firms are encouraged to review the information available via the ODNR website at http://engineering.ohiodnr.gov/dam-risk-reduction-program/current-projects/lake-white-dam Request for Qualifications (Architect / Engineer) continued F110-02-2016-JAN Publish Date: 12/08/17; Ohio Register #292 Page 2 of 5 B.
