Scope of Work:

One (1) on-call agreement, anticipated at $500,000 over a five-year term, is needed to provide independent, construction-related, project-level water quality studies for the Derry-Londonderry, 13065 (Exit 4A) project.


The purpose of this agreement is to fulfill condition E-12 of the project’s Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Certificate (WQC) granted by the NH Department of Environmental Services for the NH Department of Transportation’s (NHDOT) Army Corps of Engineers’ wetlands permit. Condition E-12 of the WQC requires that NHDOT use an independent environmental monitor to, “ensure that construction of the Activity complies with the NH surface water quality standards.”

The WQC identifies five (5) sensitive construction discharge locations to the following waterbodies where monitoring will occur, at a minimum, (IDs below from the 2018 303(d) list):

  • NHRIV700061203-23 BROOK TO WHEELER POND

In addition, water quality-related environmental commitments made for this project pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act identified the need for continued monitoring of chlorides in Beaver Brook as part of this project.

Consultants shall have a minimum of five (5) years of experience with water quality monitoring on large, linear construction projects.

The consultant selected for this assignment shall not be a member of any Design-Build proposer team for final design and construction of the project. (Click here for more information about the Design-Build project and procurement.)

Assignments under this agreement may include, but are not limited to, the collection, analysis, and reporting on water quality data and performance associated with construction stormwater discharges, including the following:

  • Identifying water quality monitoring locations, and sampling protocol;
  • Collecting and analyzing water samples for turbidity, or other pollutants, as necessary;
  • Interpreting and reporting on monitoring results;
  • Assessing water quality for compliance with the EPA National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Construction General Permit (CGP), and NHDES surface water quality standards (Env-Wq 1700);
  • Recommending to NHDOT remedial or corrective actions when water quality thresholds are exceeded (Env-Wq 1703.11 of the NH surface water quality standards);
  • Reviewing the Design-Build team’s Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) for compliance with the NPDES CGP;
  • Evaluating construction Best Management Practices (BMP) to ensure they are functioning correctly;
  • Recommending corrective actions to NHDOT on the Design-Build team’s SWPPP;
  • Assisting in the design of BMPs and remedial measures to protect water quality; and
  • Performing specific conductivity measurements in Beaver Brook for chloride monitoring.

Project: Development of an Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Program 43272B
QUALIFICATIONS-BASED SELECTION CONTRACT
Posting Date: August 26, 2019
Scope of Work: NHDOT needs to develop a UAS program plan in order to facilitate deployment of UAS in its day-to-day activities. This UAS program plan will outline the organizational structure and program requirements in order to streamline the process to implement this valuable technology.
The Consultant will review UAS applications utilized by DOTs nationwide, the related operational missions of those DOTs, and proposed or emerging UAS applications. The Consultant will evaluate the ability of each UAS application in terms of effectiveness, efficiency, safety, cost and labor savings as it applies to NHDOT. The Consultant will identify NHDOT missions that might be better served by enhancing traditional methods with UAS, as opposed to UAS applications that replace traditional NHDOT methods. This review will identify needed support systems or infrastructure (e.g., data storage, data interface, avionics, sensors, software, UAS platforms, etc.) associated with these UAS applications.

The Consultant will evaluate the possibility of NHDOT UAS ownership vs. hiring a UAS consultant. Additional constraints to be evaluated include cost, legal, regulatory, and other factors. Based on this evaluation the Consultant will make a recommendation of UAS management structure and UAS data organization within NHDOT, noting any limitations or other considerations used in making this recommendation.

Based on the recommendation above, the Consultant will develop an implementation plan that includes drafts of a UAS policy for NHDOT, UAS outreach plan, UAS privacy policy, UAS safety plan, staff requirements to support this UAS program, and other program requirements. To support this implementation plan the Consultant will evaluate current UAS legislation nationwide and recommend UAS legislation specific to New Hampshire.
