Project Name: Statewide Dam Improvements CMAR
Project Location: Various
Project Number: DNR-200082
Scope of Project: A. Project Description As part of its overall mission, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) is working to implement various Class I (high-hazard potential) and Class II dam risk-reduction projects statewide. These projects are necessary to reduce risk and to ensure these structures meet dam safety requirements. This Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is being issued to obtain Construction Manager at Risk (CMR) services for the management and construction of a series of Statewide Dam Improvement projects. This series of projects will be focused on dam improvements at the following facilities: 1. Hargus Lake Dam, located at A.W. Marion State Park, Circleville, Ohio / Pickaway County 2. Lake Milton Dam, located at Lake Milton State Park, Lake Milton, Ohio / Mahoning County 3. Grand Lake St. Marys (West) Dam, located at Grand Lake St. Marys State Park, Celina, Ohio / Mercer County 4. Van Buren Dam, located at Van Buren State Park, Van Buren, Ohio / Hancock County Hargus Lake Dam was originally constructed in 1947 and reconstructed in 1956. The reservoir provides recreational opportunities for visitors, such as fishing, boating, and swimming. The dam at Hargus Lake is a Class I high-hazard potential structure, which consists of an earthen embankment approximately 52 feet high and 1,500 feet long. The dam rehabilitation scope at Hargus Lake includes the following items: (1) removal of the existing principal spillway conduit and outlet; (2) construction of a new open-channel, cast-in-place concrete spillway near the left abutment; (3) flattening the downstream embankment slope, through engineered fill placement; (4) raising the height of the embankment to increase storage capacity, through engineered fill placement; and (5) installation of foundation and abutment drainage systems. Lake Milton Dam was originally constructed in 1916. The reservoir provides recreational opportunities for visitors, such as fishing, boating, and swimming. The dam at Lake Milton is a Class I high-hazard potential structure, which consists of an earthen embankment, approximately 53 feet high and 2,200 feet long, and a 635-foot ogee-shaped concrete spillway. The dam rehabilitation scope at Lake Milton includes the following items: (1) removal of the existing toe drain and relief well collection system; (2) installation of a new seepage control system, including chimney drains, blanket drains, toe drains and collection piping; (3) rehabilitation of the existing relief well riser pipes; (4) repairing the surface and subsurface drainage systems at the downstream right spillway wall; (5) rehabilitation of the deteriorated portions of the embankment crest concrete parapet wall; (6) regrading the existing drainage ditch at the stability berm toe, to provide positive drainage; (7) restoration of the embankment vegetation; and (8) gas line and sanitary force main relocation. Grand Lake St. Marys (GLSM) Dam was originally constructed as a feeder reservoir for the Miami-Erie Canal between 1837 and 1845. The 13,500-acre Grand Lake provides opportunities to visitors for swimming, boating, camping and fishing. The west dam embankment is located along Old State Route 703 near Celina, Ohio in Mercer County. The west dam is a Class I high-hazard potential structure and consists of an earthen embankment approximately 20 feet high and approximately 5,000 feet long. The dam rehabilitation scope at GLSM includes the following items: (1) removal of the abandoned foundations, trees, vegetation, and construction debris, for the entire 5,000 LF project area; (2) performing utility relocation and/or decommissioning, as needed; (3) restoring the embankment slope to its original grade (3:1) through engineered fill placement, for approximately 1,000 LF; (4) repairing disturbed areas where foundation/tree/debris removals Request for Qualifications (CM at Risk Contract) continued F170-01-2015-MAY Publish Date: 2/6/2020; Ohio Register # 318 Page 2 of 6 occur, using backfill and regrading to match adjacent slopes/grades, for the southern 4,000 LF of the project area; and (5) revegetating the embankment, including topsoil placement, for the entire 5,000 LF project area. Van Buren Lake Dam was originally constructed in 1939. The reservoir provides recreational opportunities for visitors, such as fishing and canoeing. The dam at Van Buren Lake is a Class II structure, which consists of an earthen embankment approximately 23 feet high and 475 feet long. This project includes interim risk reduction measures near the spillway. Located downstream of the right dam abutment, the north slope has failed near the parking lot. This failure is likely due to a combination of stormwater runoff, saturated ground conditions, vegetation removal, and unknown toe conditions. These items contributed to erosion and instability of the slope. The right abutment wing walls of the dam appear to be stable but are in poor condition. The dam rehabilitation scope at Van Buren Lake includes the following items: (1) rehabilitation of the right concrete abutment wall; (2) tree stump removal at the downstream toe of the slope, in order to establish and maintain vegetation; (3) engineered fill placement and grading at the north slope; (4) installation of a drainage ditch between the north slope and the parking lot; and (5) final stabilization of the north slope with a combination of rock channel protection, turf reinforcement matting and vegetation. Table 1 provides estimated construction budgets and preliminary schedules for each dam site. At the discretion of the Contracting Authority, the estimated construction budgets may be amended to reflect changes to the scope of work and to reflect biennial capital appropriations legislation. At the discretion of the Contracting Authority, the preliminary schedule for each dam site may be revised to reflect permitting timelines through regulatory agencies.
