A site reconnaissance visit is encouraged to be conducted in a proven systematic and detailed approach suitable for the subject property's size and/or complexity. Current property and adjoining property conditions will be documented. Identify areas of concern such as odors, stained soil or pavement, stressed vegetation, pools of liquids, drums, unidentified containers, electric or hydraulic equipment, solid waste, wells or septic systems. In addition, any indication of similar conditions from past use of the property or adjoining properties will be recorded. Visual and physical geologic, hydro geologic, hydrologic and topographic characteristics of the property and adjoining properties will be noted for the potential of migration of contaminants. As appropriate, additional site visit information shall include as applicable, a general description of the structures, roads, potable water supply, and sewage disposal system.
Interviews with government workers or other approved persons shall be conducted in person and documented, by email or memo. The contractor shall work closely with the site representative for any questions about the use and physical characteristics of the property. Appropriate local government officials may also be interviewed to obtain the necessary information. The contractor shall keep detailed notes of all interviews. These notes shall become the sole property of the USFWS. Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) shall only receive copies of notes, documentations, and reports after they have been reviewed and approved by the government.

Provide the government with a detailed/no data gaps Work Plan of what must be accomplished to render this site clean. Ultimately the government requires no further action at this site according to ADEC standards. After the Work Plan is approved the Contractor will provide the services outlined in the plan task by task. Providing a cost task by task is critical in case funding does not allow every task to be accomplished with this project. Work Plan shall include: notes, documents, reports, expert recommendations, ADEC inputs, and task cost breakdowns.

Define the lateral extent of soil contamination to the northwest of the site. This shall be a detailed analysis with no data gaps as the last report was inconclusive. Provide the amount of contaminated soils that need to be removed to achieve the governmentB?s desired result. This project includes removal of up to 10 CY of soil.
Provide a cost estimate per CY for excavating and disposing of any additional contaminated soils beyond that specified for removal.
Assessment of groundwater contamination. Contractor shall provide the government a recovery and remediation plan for the groundwater contamination. Provide the amount of contaminated groundwater that would need removal to achieve the governmentB?s desired result. In addition the Contractor shall sample monitoring wells MW1 and MW2 and give the government a expert determination of free product migration away from the source area during seasonal groundwater fluctuations.
Provide a cost per gallon price to remove and dispose of contaminated groundwater.
Provide a projected cost for coordination with ADEC.
Work Plan:
The Work Plan shall be prepared, submitted, and approved prior to conducting any work. The Work Plan shall describe the approach to waste stream identification and segregation, sample location selection, collection of samples, documentation and tracking of samples, safety and health precautions, repair of damage caused by sample collection (where necessary), the experience and qualifications of the personnel conducting the survey, and identity of the ADEC certified laboratories that will be used. The Work Plan will be delineated by Task such that each task can be priced separately and clearly defined.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control:
The Contractor shall perform QC/calibration checks on the XRF instrument in accordance with the instrument manufacturerB?s PCS. At a minimum, calibration checks for each XRF instrument shall be completed in accordance with the operator manual and the manufacturerB?s PCS. The calibration checks performed according to this paragraph that fall within the specification for the instrument shall demonstrate reading validity.
Contaminated Soils and Groundwater Survey and Sampling:
Contractor shall provide the services of an environmental professional to perform a soils investigation to complete sampling at the site. Major elements of the effort shall consist of the following:
Review all previous site reports and information and sample according to ADEC protocols. Also develop a hypothesis about where contaminants might migrate to if they have spread out of the immediate government owned area. This hypothesis will be part of the Contractors proposal. The government assumes ten soil samples at a two foot depth and ten soil samples at a three foot depth as a minimum, as long as this is consistent with ADEC protocols and also gives the government the best most accurate information about soil contamination amounts and contamination migration. Any other soil samples necessary will be pre-priced by the Contractor on a per sample basis. The pre-price will be part of the proposal.
The Contractor shall conduct as many groundwater samples as approved as necessary as long as this is consistent with ADEC protocols and also gives the government the best most accurate information about groundwater conditions. Additional samples necessary will be pre-priced by the Contractor on a per sample basis. The pre-price will be part of the proposal.
Contractor shall examine the subsurface conditions by drilling or digging test holes, logging the subsurface strata, and taking soil samples for laboratory analysis.
Samples shall be submitted to an ADEC approved laboratory for analysis of Diesel Range Organics (DRO) by Alaska Method AK102, Gasoline Range Organics (GRO) and Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylene (BTEX), by Alaska Method AK101. Environmental samples shall be delivered to the laboratory using chain-of-custody procedures.
Field headspace screening shall be performed on all soil samples taken from test holes. Samples shall be screened using a Photo Ionization Detector (PID). Readings shall be logged.
Results Report:
The Contractor shall prepare a report that includes the appropriate documentation to support the analysis, opinions, and conclusions as well as the following.
Report shall present the laboratory results from the site sampling.
