Request for Proposal
The West Stafford Fire Department (WSFD) is a volunteer fire department located in the Town of Stafford, CT with the responsibility of providing emergency services to the residents of Stafford Springs and neighboring communities.
Proposals are being requested from qualified contractors to conduct dredging/mucking at an existing pond (pond on north side of rear driveway) at the West Stafford Fire Department, 144 West Stafford Road, Stafford Springs, CT 06076. The pond is used for firefighting operations and currently has a dry hydrant installed. The pond has silted in through the years and now has an average depth of approximately two (2) feet and is approximately 60 feet by 65 feet in size. The purpose of this effort is to dredge/muck an additional three (3) feet (+/-) in depth in order to restore the functionality of our dry hydrant and restore the habitat of the wetland system. Permits for the project will need to be obtained from the Town of Stafford Zoning Department at the contractor's expense.
The Contractor will furnish all labor, equipment, and materials to perform the requested dredging/mucking of the pond. The excavation shall include the development of access for equipment from the west side of the pond, dredge/muck pond an additional three (3) feet (+/-) feet of depth with sloped sides, that meet the contour of the surrounding land, clear vegetation from the banks of pond, and install rip rap on the banks of the pond, repair any damage to lawn to include re-seeding caused by the excavation activities. The Contractor shall be responsible for determining the best methods and equipment to use with a goal of maximizing the area of dredging. The Contractor shall be responsible for the stockpiling of the material removed from the pond at a designated area on site. WSFD may entertain alternatives for the dredged materials if the Contractor can provide a market for said spoils. Further, the project scope may be amended to account for the potential increased trucking/transportation costs related to the proposed alternatives for said spoils.
