Project Name: Statewide Dams Master Planning
Project Location: Various
Project Number: DNR-190044
Scope of Project: A. Project Description Professional engineering services are being requested to provide engineering assessment and master planning services for statewide Class I, II, and III dams owned by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). ODNR owns and maintains 113 classified dams throughout the state. The selected firm will provide master planning services which would include reviewing existing inspection reports and assessments, conducting limited site assessments (if authorized), and documentation of existing conditions specifically noting deficiencies, design alternative analyses with associated cost estimates, and recommendations for prioritizing and phasing construction. In addition, identification of Interim Risk Reduction Measures (IRRMs) may be necessary while on-going master planning efforts are underway. The information accumulated through this process will be utilized as a screening level analysis to review and update ODNR’s statewide master plan in order to prioritize dam-related construction throughout the state and most effectively implement comprehensive and interim risk reduction measures over multiple Capital biennium cycles. Prioritizing IRRMs may be considered in order to provide incremental improvements before funding is available for more comprehensive risk reduction measures. The selected A/E will utilize existing reports, assessments, and conduct limited site visits to gather additional information as required to develop a technical means and methodology for prioritizing required improvements. Consideration will be given to public usage of the reservoir, dam and adjacent features during this process. Construction would be undertaken to ensure public safety and long-term performance as well as functional and aesthetic improvements as identified in the master plan. Familiarity with the latest innovative dam safety design alternatives and construction technologies will be necessary to expedite construction and minimize adverse recreational and economic impacts during rehabilitation projects. While ODNR anticipates centralized services from the selected Consultant at the ODNR Fountain Square complex at 2045 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43229, travel within the state will likely be necessary to complete the services. For the purposes of scoring proximity to project site, the ODNR Fountain Square complex will be considered the project site. B. Scope of Services The assessment scope of services shall include an initial information gathering process, utilizing in-house ODNR resources (i.e. record drawings, reports, etc.) as well as information available through the Dam Safety Program in addition to any other avenues required to develop a plan of action to efficiently document and prioritize required improvements at all classified ODNR owned dams. The scope of services may also include, but is not limited to; conceptual estimating, phasing, budgeting, and final reporting. Site investigations are not anticipated for this assessment, however they may be authorized in limited circumstances. The selected A/E will be required to utilize information technology services to organize and present information in a clear and concise format. All work shall be performed in compliance with Ohio Dam Safety Rules and Regulations. Final deliverables will include a database and report ranking of ODNR Class I, II, and II dams including detailed methodology and backup documentation.
