The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District (NAE) is issuing this Sources Sought Announcement for remediation services at the PR-58 site in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. This announcement is to determine interest, availability and capability of 8(a), HUBZone, Service- Disabled Veteran-Owned, Women-Owned and other Small Business concerns. The NAICS code for the work described below is 562910 (750 employee size standard). The estimated cost of the work covered by this sources sought is $15 million. The solicitation is planned to be issued on or about October 2021. The contract is scheduled to be awarded in late February 2022. The PR-58 site (the Site) was previously used by the U.S. Navy as a military camp from 1942 until the end of World War II, by the U.S. Army as the Nike Battery PR-58 from 1954 to 1962, by the U.S. Navy as the DVTA from 1964 to 1974, and by Peabody Clean Industries (PCI) for hazardous materials storage and treatment from 1980 to 1983. Historical operations conducted on the Property by these operations resulted in releases of hazardous materials and impacts to environmental media. The source area has been defined as the area of the Site where chlorinated volatile organic compounds (CVOCs), primarily trichloroethene and tetrachloroethane, have been identified at concentrations greater than 10,000 ug/Kg in soil and/or 70,000 ug/L in groundwater. Investigations indicate that residual DNAPL is still present in the deeper unconsolidated overburden deposits and bedrock fractures in an area approximately 1/3 acre in size beneath the site. The exact vertical and horizontal extents of the source area are not currently well defined with the limited data available. The vertical extent consists of 25-45 feet of unconsolidated deposits underlain by approximately 40 feet of basal glacial till and weathered bedrock and at least 60 feet of competent bedrock with known contamination. The total depth of the source area in the bedrock is not well defined at this time but it appears that the treatment zone will be extend no deeper than 100 feet below ground surface (bgs). The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District has a future requirement based on the 2019 Decision Documents for Former Nike Battery PR-58 And Disaster Village Training Area, Quonset Point Naval Air Station, North Kingstown, Rhode Island to remediate source area contamination as well as dissolved phase groundwater CVOC contamination throughout the remainder of the site. This sources sought is to address source area contaminants only. A follow-on remedial contract will be awarded at a later date, currently anticipated to be 2025, to address downgradient dissolved phase contamination. NAE is currently embarking on a pre-design investigation (PDI) for the source area remediation that includes: definition of the lateral and vertical limits of the treatment zone; testing to select the optimal thermal remediation technology; and assessments of the natural reactivity of the native rock with the chemicals of concern (relevant for future natural attenuation). The product of this PDI will be a 30% design of the source area thermal remedy. Project Requirements: The objective of this remediation is to aggressively remediate the source area and render the source area and vicinity suitable for unlimited use and unrestricted exposure (UU/UE) in the long term. The selected source area remedy in the 2019 Decision Document is in-situ thermal treatment using either electric resistance heating (ERH) or thermal conduction heating (TCH). However, initial PDI and bench test findings have identified that TCH as the more feasible technology for the source area. Interested firms should submit a capabilities package to include the following: business classification (i.e. HUBZone, small business, etc.), documentation of relevant project experience. Project experience. Include projects demonstrating experience meeting remediation goals utilizing in-situ thermal heating in deep soil and/or bedrock. Particular emphasis should be place on Thermal Conduction Heating experience. Please include whether the roles performed were by the prime or subcontractor(s). Project Team: Please indicate the team subcontractor(s) (if any), including their prior experience and qualifications, which will be used to support the offeror's effort.
