Professional Engineering Services for Various Storm Water Services Projects

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services is requesting proposals from qualified companies interested in providing Professional Engineering Services for Various Storm Water Services Projects.  Services will be needed for the following two scopes of work:

Unspecified Minor Storm Drainage Improvement Projects

Work may include but is not necessarily limited to initiating new projects or the review and completion of an existing project’s activities already in progress. Minor drainage projects are the ones defined to average in total construction cost between $50,000 to $500,000 each.

Active Major Storm Drainage Improvement Projects

Work includes the review and completion of an existing project’s activities already in progress. Scoping on these projects is anticipated to begin in 2021. The specific projects will be identified in the Request for Qualifications.

Westbourne Storm Drainage Improvement Project

This project is bordered by Old Plank Road to the north, Bellhaven Boulevard to the south, Larkhaven Road to the east and West Laporte Drive to the west. The drainage system consists of open channel and closed pipe systems underneath City maintained roads. Significant erosion and numerous sink holes have been observed. It has been identified that failing infrastructure exists underneath City maintained roads and the DM-team has made several intermediate repairs where ends of pipe systems have fallen off into the open channels. Additionally, transverse roadway overtopping has been identified at Ravenswood Road and Balfour Lane. There are existing A priority requests as far back as 2005.

Elvis Storm Drainage Improvement Project

This project consists of two culverts in series under Cedarbrook Drive and Denbur Drive. Both culvert crossings consist of triple barrel corrugated metal pipe systems. This is a project that was identified by the Asset Management Team and both culvert crossings are active failing and preliminary calculations show that the culverts are also undersized.

Bonwood Storm Drainage Improvement Project

This project is located near the intersection of Bonwood Drive and South Wendover Road. A previous DM-Team project replaced 100 linear feet of corrugated metal pipe under Bonwood Drive near 3853 Bonwood Drive due to system failure. Evidence of surface failure in the yard at 3853 Bonwood Drive exists upstream and Asset Management has recently identified deteriorating system downstream under Bonwood Drive. Crawl space flooding has also been identified at 2205 Wrenwood Pond Court due to lack of storm drainage infrastructure to intercept runoff from Wendover Park Lane.

Chatham Storm Drainage Improvement Project

The purpose and need for this construction project is to improve the storm drainage infrastructure (i.e. pipe systems and culverts) to reduce flooding and to enhance degraded stream reaches to reduce erosion and improve water quality.  This project is under review.  Location and project details will be provided after review is complete.

Sharon Hills Storm Drainage Improvement Project

The purpose and need for this construction project is to improve the storm drainage infrastructure (i.e. pipe systems and culverts) to reduce flooding and to enhance degraded stream reaches to reduce erosion and improve water quality.  This project is under review.  Location and project details will be provided after review is complete.

Hughes 5508 Storm Drainage Improvement Project

The purpose and need for this construction project is to improve the storm drainage infrastructure (i.e. pipe systems and culverts) to reduce flooding and to enhance degraded stream reaches to reduce erosion and improve water quality.  This project is under review.  Location and project details will be provided after review is complete.

Briar Creek/Green Oaks Storm Drainage Improvement Project

The purpose and need for this construction project is to improve the storm drainage infrastructure (i.e. pipe systems and culverts) to reduce flooding and to enhance degraded stream reaches to reduce erosion and improve water quality.  This project is under review.  Location and project details will be provided after review is complete.

911 Georgetown Storm Drainage Improvement Project

The purpose and need for this construction project is to improve the storm drainage infrastructure (i.e. pipe systems and culverts) to reduce flooding and to enhance degraded stream reaches to reduce erosion and improve water quality.  This project is under review.  Location and project details will be provided after review is complete.
