Question 18 What is the limit of the stream scour corrective action/bank
stabilization to be noted as part of the outfall rehab? Is it within the
immediate vicinity of the splash pads or x-number of feet
Answer Stream bank scour corrective action
recommendations are restricted to the immediate vicinity of the
Question 17 If required by NJDEP, are stream delineations
included in the scope of work for applicable outfall areas not previously
Question 16 Since the project is located in the Highlands and possibly in C1
waters, the NJDEP FHA and SWM rules would generally not be favorable to any
potential increase in the existing outfall pipe sizes and/or the installation of
new outfalls. Specifically, if the outfall is found to be undersized, is the
Department requiring that the contracted consultant identify/provide a design
that would accommodate the outfall and comply with Highlands regulations,
particularly for Illicit Connections? Oversized, underground pipes may be
required to provide minimum storage to comply with the required outflows.
Answer Only the size, composition and condition of the
pipe is required.
Question 15 If the outfall end requires conduit outlet protection and repairs, what
would be the preferred method (e.g. end sections vs. headwalls to reduce
cost/limit of disturbance; preformed scour holes vs. splash pads to reduce limit
Answer Outlet protection only need be
noted as a recommendation.
Question 14 Does the Department require an O&M Manual for each outfall or one
O&M to cover all locations?
Answer. The Department
does not require an O & M Manual.
Question 13 The proposal calls for plans to show corrective measures. Are
plans to be submitted to permitting agencies, such as FHA, Wetlands, Solid
Waste, and Request for Authorization for Stormwater Discharge (5G3)?
Question 12 Are permits to be
pursued or just identified for the required corrective actions?
Answer. No, just identified. It is understood that
NJDOT regulates itself for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control.
Question 11 Will the Department require Technical Specifications for the
corrective measures identified?
Question 10 Is there a map available outlining the specific geographic limits
of the Highlands Area that is to be included in this project?
Question 9 Does the Highlands Area include
both the Preservation and Planning Areas?
Question 8 Are all outfalls to be located and identified using GIS in 1988
Datum, NJ State Plane Coordinates?
Question 7 The silts and sediments in basins and stream corridors may contain
ID-27 Material. Inlet and storm sewer cleaning and TV inspections may be
required as part of the corrective measures. Testing to determine the nature of
the materials that may be removed from the basins and outfall could be required.
Will the Department require an LSRP on staff to handle any contaminated soils
issued that may be encountered? Will the Department aid in the testing and/or
have any available disposal sites? This could affect the cost of the corrective
Answer No materials testing or LSRP
the purpose of personal planning, what is the time frame to award the project
and start remedial investigation/action?
Answer:About Nine to Ten Months
is the current long term goal for this site? To reduce environmental liability
(remediate) as quickly as possible or manage financial liability over a longer
To manage the financial liability over a longer
4 Question:Is groundwater horizontally and vertically delineated to the NJDEP Groundwater
Water will be fully delineated (Horizontal and Vertical delineation) by the
completion of the approved Tasks by the current consultant this year
3 Question: With the passing of Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) the UST Subsurface
Evaluator Certification is applicable to unregulated heating oil tanks only
while License Site Remedial Professional (LSRP) is required for management of
regulated USTs sites. The UST Closure Certification is required for the
physical removal of the UST. This qualification line item may not be applicable
to this site, will the NJDOT consider this during the review process?
is recommended to have it , but not necessary. So we will consider this fact
during the evaluation. It will not be held against the consultant if they do
not have it.
2 Question: Can you provide a figure with the locations of monitoring wells MW-12, MW-13,
MW-14, MW-15, and MW-16?
Answer: A pdf file was placed on the solicitation page detailing the locations.
1 Question:The solicitation requests that all Team Leaders/Key Staff Members have UST
Closure and Subsurface certification. Due to the new LSRP regulations that took
effect in May of 2012, would it be necessary for all Team Leaders/Key Staff
Members to have UST subsurface certifications since activities contemplated for
this site will be under the jurisdiction of the LSRP retained for this site and
since this work only deals with regulated tanks this certification will not be
used under this contract by Team Leaders/Key Staff Members?
