Wed, 23 Mar 2016 13:55:00 MST The project includes work under the Flood Control District’s (District) Dam Safety Program. The work will primarily involve geotechnical field investigations, material sampling and testing and engineering analysis, monitoring, evaluation of monitoring data, instrumentation installation, planning and design of specific corrective actions as needed to address potential dam safety issues at District dams or as needed for overall dam rehabilitation/replacement projects, and other engineering tasks and services as may be needed to meet the goals, objectives and work requirements of the District’s Dam Safety Program. Individual work assignments will be scoped and negotiated under the contract.
Technical services that are anticipated to complete the work authorized under this contract will include: geology, geotechnical engineering, dam safety, dam technology, subsidence and earth fissure monitoring, civil engineering and risk assessment, and survey. An engineer with dam technology experience and risk assessment facilitation experience will be required on the consultant team. Investigations may be conducted through the use of exploration test pits, test trenches, borings, material sampling, and field/laboratory testing. Additional technical services that may be required include surveying, hydrologic and hydraulic analyses, geomorphologic evaluations, structural engineering, aerial mapping, public involvement, environmental assessments, biological evaluations, archaeology, and landscape architectural evaluation and design.
Investigations for site-specific issues typically involve: dam embankment cracking, central filters investigations, dam foundation issues, land subsidence and earth fissure investigations, and principal spillway structure investigations. Repairs typically involve embankment cracking repairs and instrumentation installation. The work may involve investigations and engineering services for overall rehabilitation/replacement of existing dams including geotechnical field investigation work, material sampling and testing, engineering analysis and design in support of planning and design contracts for the overall rehabilitation or replacement of a District dam.
Geotechnical investigations and engineering services as described above may also be required for other types of flood control facilities such as levees, basins and channel, both existing and proposed.ConsultingOn-Call Dam Safety Engineering Services
Wed, 23 Mar 2016 13:52:00 MST An On-Call contract is required for work under the Flood Control District’s (District) Dam Safety Program. The work will primarily involve civil engineering services and hydrology and hydraulics related to dam safety work for various Flood Control District of Maricopa County (DISTRICT) embankment dams. Geotechnical engineering services will be a secondary service under the authority of this contract. This will also involve investigations, engineering analyses, and development of site-specific corrective actions as needed to address potential dam safety issues at DISTRICT Dams. The work may also involve implementation of site-specific dam safety corrective measures or engineering support during construction. Work assignments will be developed and negotiated under this contract. The work will be accomplished under the direction of a Registered Engineer, Geologist, or Architect with the State of Arizona in the appropriate discipline. The technical services that are anticipated for completion of work authorized under this contract include; civil engineering, hydrology, hydraulics, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, dam safety and technology, and FMEA (failure modes and effects analysis) capability performed by an experienced FMEA facilitator. Additional technical services that may be required include, but are not limited to, surveying, geology, geomorphology, aerial mapping, biological sciences, archaeology, landscape architecture, construction material testing and public involvement.
Specific areas of work anticipated under this contract are as follows:
• Initiate the new Formal Inspection Process for the District’s embankment dams which will include:
• A review of all available data such as design documents, as-builts, modifications, O&M plans and history,
• A design criteria review for geotechnical, hydrology/hydraulics and structural design elements comparing the assessment of each dam versus the current design standards,
• Review of the current EAP or Emergency Action Plan as to its status and adequacy,
• Field examination and inspection summary of the structure, pipe video, review of easements and land rights documents for compliance,
• Review of the downstream hazard classification,
• A summary report based upon the findings of the formal inspection to include compliance with regulatory requirements, data gaps uncovered during the inspection, and a corrective actions summary and or need for further analysis of the structure.
• Conduct Failure Modes Effects Analysis Meetings on structures through a qualified Risk Analysis Facilitator,
• Design of engineered solutions for principal spillways in support of the Dam Outlet Assessment Program,
• Hydrology and hydraulics analysis in support of the District’s Structures Management Branch.Consulting
