NOTICE OF REQUEST FOR QUOTES

FOR LIMITED SITE INVESTIGATION OF

104 DISBROW HILL ROAD (BLOCK 32, LOT 5)

East Windsor Township is investigating a property parcel as a potential acquisition in support of its open space development plan.  The property is Block 32, Lot 5 on the East Windsor Township tax maps and is also known as 104 Disbrow Hill Road.

The property has recently completed a Preliminary Assessment Review (PAR) in accordance with the standards set forth by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s Green Acres program.

The frim who completed the PAR has identified an Area of Concern (AOC) that requires further site investigation.  The AOC is potentially a fill area as evidenced by surface and embedded debris visible at ground level.

The NJDEP Division of Water Supply and GeoScience Historic Fill Maps for the Jamesburg and Roosevelt quadrangles- (HFM-80, 89) do not depict any mapped State fill areas at or adjoining the Site. However, during the Site visit conducted for this PAR, an approximately 900 square foot area of uneven topography at the location of the footpath and cleared area leading to the lands to the south of the Site were identified. Identified were two (2) areas of limited surface and partially buried metal pieces at the middle of the path. In addition, a drum carcass was identified at or adjacent to the west boundary of the Site at the low flooded area identified as AOC-1 above. The drum was empty and heavily damaged, and not able to identify any contents, liquid, or staining/stressed vegetation at the ground surfaces at the drum location.

The Site Owner asserts that they were not aware of any fill material at the south portion of the Site or anywhere else at the Site.

East Windsor Township is issuing this Request for Quote (RFQ) to conduct further Investigation to confirm or deny the presence of fill material which may have been impacted prior to being imported to the Site. The investigation should include the completion of non-invasive geophysical survey at the location of the suspected fill area and the completion of test pits and excavation at the areas to identify any fill or buried material targets identified during the geophysical survey.

Firms may reference the attached scope of services as a framework for their response to the RFQ.

SITE INVESTIGATION SCOPE OF SERVICES

Firm must propose the following scope of services to further evaluate and investigate the above-mentioned AOC at the Site. The Site Investigation report shall present the findings of the investigation with recommendations for further investigation if warranted.

The GP Survey will attempt to identify any buried metallic, conductive or other non-aggregate objects or areas which may indicate the presence of fill material.
