The New Hanover County Engineering Department, located in Wilmington, NC invites interested engineering firms or teams with proven experience evaluating, designing, and permitting stream re-alignment/repair, restoration, and bank stabilization work for approximately 850 linear feet along an unnamed tributary to Smith Creek of which is experiencing slope stability issues and erosion and concerns with an adjacent sewer line.
This request for qualifications seeks a professional engineering firm or team of consultants interested in assisting New Hanover County in developing a solution, preparing construction plans, and obtaining any necessary permitting to repair the channel and aid in protecting it from further deterioration in future storm events.
New Hanover County is seeking consulting, design, and permitting services to repair/restore and stabilize a 850 linear foot segment of an unnamed tributary near the head waters of Smith Creek located in the 6800 block of Murrayville Road. This segment of the ditch is experiencing significant erosion and causing concern with a CFPUA sewer line. There are other underground and overhead utilities present along this section of the creek which may become compromised in the future if the current issues are not addressed.
The primary goal of this project is to determine a course of action, develop construction plans and specifications, and obtain any necessary permits to repair the damage along the segment of unnamed tributary to Smith Creek identified above. Additional and secondary goals include:
- Stabilization of the creek’s banks to mitigate potential damage in the future.
- Protect Cape Fear Public Utility Authority’s assets.
- Establish a documented baseline condition for restoration in the event of future damage.
