BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION FOR CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT

The New York District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is preparing plans and specifications for the repair of a collapsed grout bag weir in Potash Lake, which is located in Oakland, New Jersey. The weir collapsed due to the scouring of the underlying material.
The repair will be performed by constructing 230 linear foot steel-capped sheet pile weir roughly 6 feet upstream from the existing weir. Sheet pile will be driven to depths of 10 feet to 20 feet below the lake bottom with approximately 7 feet of sheet pile exposed to the water.
Existing rip rap, bedding stone, and filter fabric will be removed for construction. After construction of the sheet pile weir is complete, the rip rap, bedding stone, and filter fabric will be replaced to prevent future scouring.
Sections of the existing grout bag weir will need to be removed and replaced with new grout bags.
The estimated construction cost is $500,000 to $1,000,000.

OPERATIONAL CONSTRAINTS

The Contractor will conform to all local, state, and federal laws while carrying out the construction process for this project.

The Contractor shall prepare and submit a site-specific safety and health plan to the government for approval prior to mobilization.
