NAICS: 562211. THIS IS A FULL AND OPEN COMPETITION. The U.S. Department of the Air Force requires the removal and treatment of Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and/or Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA), two organic chemicals within the PFAS group, from accumulated water from the fire training area retention pond at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) in southwestern Ohio. To prevent any overflow of water beyond the pond's containment capacity it is estimated that the Contractor would need to pump, treat, and dispose of up to 17,000 gallons per month while performing this contract. The pond is drained and cleaned by a maintenance contractor in the early spring and late fall. The contractor shall coordinate to have the pond drained to an acceptable level with this maintenance schedule and any liner cleaning, characterization of waste material, and disposal of off-site solids/sludges shall be provided and worked by the contractor. All disposal actions shall be coordinated and approved with the WPAFB Hazardous Waste Program Manager. The contractor shall provide quotes for both onsite and offsite pump-and-treat treatment options. The award will be made to the lowest-priced technically acceptable offer for either onsite or offsite service with a period of performance of one year.

NAICS: 562910. THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE FOR MARKETING RESEARCH PURPOSES ONLY. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks qualified Environmental Remediation Services firms interested and capable of conducting remedial action activities at the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP) Maywood Superfund Site (FMSS) in Bergen County, New Jersey. FMSS is in a highly developed area of northeastern New Jersey, approximately 12 miles north-northwest of New York City. Radioactive contamination at the FMSS resulted from rare earth and thorium processing operations and spread to nearby properties using the waste materials as fill or through soil and sediment transport. The USACE has been remediating the FMSS since 1998 and the work under this SATOC is a continuation of those efforts. The work and services shall consist of environmental services to support the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers New York District in environmental investigation, construction, preparation of appropriate documents, monitoring and restoration associated with FMSS. Work may include construction remedial action activities consisting of the excavation, transportation, and disposal of radiologically contaminated soil, including general conditions, project support, and waste handling and management. Waste handling and management shall include task management, waste soil loadout, material staging area maintenance and vicinity property wastewater treatment. Preparation of appropriate documentation for the remediation of properties will be required. General conditions activities shall include project management, community relations, real estate support, IT support, project-wide training, and task order closeout. Project support activities shall consist of environmental monitoring and the continued operation and maintenance of the on-site laboratory and database system. A Single Award Task Order Contract (SATOC) is being contemplated. There is no solicitation at this time. CAPABILITY STATEMENTS ARE DUE BY 2:00 PM CDT ON SEPTEMBER 22, 2023.

NAICS: 562910. THIS IS A TOTAL SMALL BUSINESS SET-ASIDE. The U.S. Forest Service requires a contractor to assess the suitability of saturated rock backfill within the Main Beal Pit for in situ biological attenuation of selenium. The project is located at Beal Mountain Mine, a former open pit gold mine located approximately 16 miles west of Butte, Montana near the headwaters of German Gulch Creek. The proposed investigation will provide essential information on the applicability and optimization of a semi-passive approach to selenium management utilizing the saturated rock backfill at the Main Beal Pit. The rates of biological selenium reduction and attenuation will be determined using waste rock and water samples. If laboratory-scale studies demonstrate that amendments support efficient selenium attenuation, this data could provide the basis for future work toward a full-scale semi-passive system. The contractor will evaluate the microbial community present within the saturated pit backfill to understand the extent and rate of existing selenium attenuation. The existing site water quality database will be reviewed followed by development of a sampling and analysis plan (SAP). The SAP will guide site sample collection of water quality samples and microbial samples from site surface water and groundwater for organisms capable of selenium reduction within the backfilled pit. The contractor will conduct 500 feet of exploratory drilling for water quality monitoring and microbial community sampling within the pit and will obtain material samples for testing. Testing will be designed to understand the existing and potential rate and extent of selenium attenuation by existing microbial communities to identify the optimal dosage of supplements suitable for long-term semiā€passive in situ treatment. The period of performance will be one year with an expected start date of October 1, 2023. QUOTES ARE DUE BY 12:00 PM MDT ON SEPTEMBER 26, 2023.
