Original Date Posted: June 10, 2013 8:58 am

Due Date: July 22, 2013 at 3:00pm (PDT)



Native Salmonid Conservation Program Hatchery Project

 Seattle City Light (SCL) is seeking a multi-disciplinary consulting team to assist with and provide implementation planning, design and engineering services, permitting and regulatory review, and construction oversight and management services for a Native Salmonid Conservation Program (NSCP) hatchery. The NSCP conservation hatchery project is a required Protection, Mitigation, and Enhancement (PM&E) measure of the new FERC license granted for the SCL Boundary Dam hydroelectric project (FERC #2144).  This is a highly complex project, and entails the need for expertise in project management, hatchery design and engineering, fisheries science, regulatory review and permitting, and construction management and oversight. Respondents should be prepared to demonstrate their experience and qualifications in each of these specific categories.

A multi-step approach will be used to assist SCL in implementation of the NSCP. The primary objectives of this contract will be to:

  • Assess the feasibility of a proposed hatchery site near Usk, WA.
  • Conduct implementation planning efforts that include:  identifying the risks and benefits of outplanting native salmonids in the project area and mitigation measures to reduce risks (e.g. fish health, domestication, etc.);  recommending sources and techniques for collection of broodstock, target production by life-stage, a hatchery genetics management plan, and a monitoring program to evaluate success of outplanted native salmonids.
  • Develop a conceptual level engineering design for the hatchery facility.
  • Prepare draft and final engineering plans for the facility, completing any required regulatory review and obtaining necessary permits.
  • Prepare a final design and bid package for hatchery construction to be awarded through the City of Seattle’s Public Works process.
  • Prepare a construction implementation schedule.
  • Provide construction oversight to ensure facility is built to plans and specifications.
  • Assist SCL in all necessary consultations and approvals required by FERC, the Fish and Aquatics Work Group (FAWG), and other regulatory agencies relating to the concepts, design, specifications, construction and operations of the NSCP hatchery facility.
  • Assist SCL in preparing and filing all FERC required documentation and reporting related to the development and initial operation of the NSCP.

The term of the contract shall extend from the date of execution by the General Manager of Seattle City Light, or designee, through March 2021.  City Light estimates the contract to be $2.2 to $2.8 million dollars over the life of the contract.
