Project Name: North Reservoir Dam Rehabilitation
Project Location: Portage Lake State Park
Project Number: DNR-170050
Scope of Project: A. Project Description Construction Manager at Risk services are being requested to provide pre-construction and construction phase services for rehabilitation of North Reservoir Dam. North Reservoir Dam is a high-hazard, Class I dam with a severe spillway deficiency. Overtopping protection is necessary for the project to safely pass the design flood, which is the 72-hour Probable Maximum Flood (PMF). North Reservoir Dam is comprised of two embankments, east and west, of approximately equal length that are separated by several hundred feet of natural ground. The total length of the embankments is approximately 650 feet. In addition to providing overtopping protection, there are seepage concerns with the east embankment and the existing spillway is very deteriorated and structure does not meet established dam safety standards. The structure must be replaced. The site of the proposed work is along the shoreline of the existing embankment extending near the north end of the reservoir and along the two embankment areas adjacent to Portage Lakes Drive and Dollar Drive and ending approximately 250 east of Manchester Road. State-owned property within the work site includes all areas within the existing shoreline (North Reservoir). Additional State-owned or State-leased parcels along the shoreline and adjacent to the work site may be available for use by the contractor. Work will be required on or adjacent to properties not currently owned or leased by the State. The selected team will be required to assist with acquisition of and establishment of easements on these properties for the purposes of construction of the dam improvements. Through this selection process, ODNR contemplates engaging a Construction Manager at Risk (“CM”) to provide preconstruction and construction services for all improvements at the facility. Professional design services are being acquired by the Contracting Authority under a separate contract. All aspects of the project and related issues will be implemented and operated consistent with the Contracting Authority and/or Owner’s policies and procedures. B. Scope of Services The work required includes heavy civil construction both on land and in water. Work may include the following: • Preconstruction services as described below. • Services associated with property acquisition and establishment of easements such as appraisals, surveys, and Phase 1 environmental assessments/reports on behalf of ODNR as necessary to complete the construction project. • Construction of embankment stability berm in areas presently submerged, and removal and disposal of berm material post construction. • Working from barges or other floating plants and equipment.

Project Name: Kirkersville Feeder Canal Study and Report
Project Location: Millersport & Kirkersville / Fairfield & Licking
Project Number: DNR-190005
Scope of Project: A. Project Description Professional engineering services are being requested to provide engineering assessment and master planning services for the Kirkersville Feeder Canal, part of the Buckeye Lake State Park system and owned by Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Parks and Watercraft. The Kirkersville Feeder Canal begins on the southeast side of the Village of Kirkersville, in Licking County, and extends approximately 6 miles southeast to the western end of Buckeye Lake near the Village of Millersport, in Fairfield County. The Kirkersville Feeder Canal was originally constructed as a water supply to the Ohio & Erie Canal and in 1839 the feeder was constructed to introduce water from the South Fork Licking River to increase water supply to the lake. While the feeder no longer connects to the South Fork Licking River, it still serves as a vital water supply to Buckeye Lake. Incremental repairs have been made over time, however no major improvements have been made to the structure since its original construction. The selected firm will provide master planning services which would include site assessment and documentation of existing conditions specifically noting deficiencies, design alternative analyses with associated cost estimates, and recommendations for prioritizing and phasing potential construction alternatives. The selected firm will be required to coordinate with local government, private groups, and property owners. In addition, design and construction administration services may be required to implement Interim Risk Reduction Measures (IRRMs) while on-going master planning efforts are underway. The intent of this project is to develop a facility-specific master plan utilizing a phased rehabilitation approach for use in conjunction with other facility plans so that ODNR can prioritize work on this structure with other ODNR related construction. Prioritizing the design and construction of IRRMs will allow for incremental improvements before funding is available for more comprehensive risk reduction measures. The study and report will initially focus on structural and water conveyance improvements to ensure proper and safe operation of the feeder. Environmental studies and improvements may be considered with input from local government and stakeholders. If required, 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. These improvements may be carried out under General Contracting, Design Build, or Construction Manager at Risk Delivery Methods. Selected IRRMs may also be constructed using ODNR construction crews and equipment. Familiarity with the latest innovative embankment, spillway, and construction technologies is required. Through this selection process, ODNR contemplates engaging an Architect/Engineer (A/E) for master planning, site assessment, preliminary design, and potentially design and construction administration of selected IRRMs. However, the selected A/E’s agreement (Agreement) may be extended and amended to add final design and construction administration work as capital appropriations are available in future Capital Bill legislation for a complete rehabilitation project.
