M1811-2020 Bid Tab – Agate Creek Restoration Exposed Force Main

Lake Whatcom Water and Sewer District (“District”) will receive sealed Bid proposals for the following project:

TITLE: Agate Creek Restoration – Exposed Force Main (District Project #M1811-2020)

SUMMARY OF WORK:  This project will rebuild a stream channel downstream of a crossing of a sewer force main owned by the District. In 2019, the force main was encased in concrete to stabilize and protect the 8-inch diameter pressure pipe. At the same time, the stream channel was filled with rock to create a 10% slope streambed channel directly downstream of the force main. However, during winter storms most of the install rock washed downstream. This Project will use boulders to reconstruct the channel so that storm flows will not wash away the streambed. Streambed sediment will be used to fill in all of the channel voids between and below the boulders. Material washed downstream last winter will be retrieved and disposed of by the Contractor. Some of this material can be used to fill voids between the boulders. Construction work is governed by the requirements of the hydraulic project approval (HPA) permit.

ESTIMATED BASE BID COST RANGE: Base Bid $28,600 (Not including sales tax)
