NOTICE TO BIDDERS
Project No. 3191-03
Sealed bids will be received at City Hall located at 425 N. Parkerson Avenue, Crowley, Louisiana, or by electronic bid at www.centralauctionhouse.com by the Mayor and Council of the City of Crowley, Louisiana, and staff, until 2:00 p. m. on Tuesday the 22nd day of March , 20 16 for the following:
RESTORATION OF the rock filter
wastewater treatment facility
at which time bids will be publicly opened and read aloud at the City of Crowley City Hall located at 425 N. Parkerson Avenue, Crowley, Louisiana, 70527.
Bids received after the above specified time for opening will be returned unopened to the sender.
The work consists primarily of the removal of the existing rock in the filter system, cleaning of the rock (removal of organic and inorganic matter currently plugging the filter) and the installation of the clean rock. An alternate regrading (placing it on proper grade) the existing effluent pipe in the rock filter is also included in the bid. Contractor's classification shall be Municipal and Public Works Construction. Bidders are advised that the Owner will also allow contractors with a license classification of “Heavy Construction” to bid the project, but we emphasize that the project entails removal and reinstallation of rock filter media (permeable horizontal rock layer) and not a densely compacted limestone base more typically constructed under this classification. The bidder should pay particular attention to the clarification in regard to the filter reinstallation requirements. It should also be noted that the cleaning of the rock will generate sludge that will need to be collected, dried and disposed of at the area sanitary landfill by certified sludge haulers.
