Bid Title: RFP – Corp Yard Well: Biologist, Archaeologist and Paleontologist
Category: Menlo Park Requests for Proposals and Qualifications
Status: Closed

The Menlo Park Municipal Water District (District) invites wildlife biologists, archaeologists, and paleontologists to submit proposals for professional services during construction of an emergency well at the City’s Corporation Yard located at 333 Burgess Drive.

The City’s Emergency Water Supply Well Project will provide emergency water for the District and will consist of constructing 3 to 4 emergency wells in order to provide a total of 3,000 gallons per minute. Design and construction of a well consists of two construction phases: drilling the well and constructing of the wellhead facilities.

The first emergency well will be located at the City’s Corporation Yard at 333 Burgess Drive. It will consist of the wellhead and submerged pump, disinfection equipment, a pressure surge tank, an emergency generator, electrical transformer, and associated piping. The well will be placed behind the Corp Yard front entrance and, once it is constructed, it will be tested periodically to ensure it is working properly.

In June 2016, the City Council adopted the Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the Corporation Yard Well. The MND contains required mitigation measures that must be implemented by a wildlife biologist, an archaeologist, and a paleontologist prior to and during both the well drilling phase and construction of the wellhead facilities. (See pages 18-24 of the MND, which can be viewed at

The well drilling is anticipated to occur in the January/February 2017 timeframe over a 7-10 day period and construction of the wellhead facilities is anticipated to occur in late-summer 2017.
