Project Description:
 

The purpose of this Request For Qualifications (“RFQ”) is to invite interested parties to submit responses indicating their interest in, and qualifications for the “Project” described as follows:

  • Hartland Environmental Programs Annual Reporting (“Annual Reporting”); and

  • Miscellaneous Consulting Services.

    Based on these responses, in accordance with the terms of this RFQ, a shortlist of Proponents will be invited to participate in the next stage of the Competitive Selection Process, the Request for Standing Offer (“RFSO”) stage. The Capital Regional District (“CRD”) expects to shortlist three to four Proponents from the RFQ.

    This RFQ is not a tender or an offer or a request for proposals, and there is no intention by the CRD to make an offer by issuing this RFQ.

    Under the Competitive Selection Process, the CRD is seeking to enter into a Contract (the “Contract”) with a qualified entity (“Consultant”) to provide consulting services for the Project as described above.

    Each annual report covers a 12-month period from April 1 to March 31 such that the 2019 annual report covers data from April 2019 through March 2020. The scope of the work for annual reporting is limited to the interpretation, evaluation and reporting of monitoring data. CRD staff are responsible for all field monitoring and sample collection activities. The scope of work for Miscellaneous Consulting Services may include: hydrogeological assessments; monitoring well installation; assessment and interpretation of routine and non-routine data (groundwater, surface water and vapour), collection of non-routine data, data quality assurance and control and conformance documentation under the Landfill Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste, BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy (“ENV”).

SITE DETAILS

The Hartland Landfill is owned by the CRD and is located approximately 14 km northwest of Victoria. A private company owned and operated the landfill beginning in the 1950’s. The CRD purchased the site in 1975 and operates the facility as the primary solid waste facility for 13 municipalities and 3 electoral areas of the Capital Region.

The CRD has undertaken environmental monitoring (surface water and groundwater) since 1983. The Hartland Environmental Program is part of the Amended Operational Certificate #12659, amended January 21, 2013 by ENV.

Data indicates that there is a regional groundwater flow system in the bedrock surrounding and underlying the landfill and a second groundwater flow system contained within the waste itself. Although the two flow systems are separate, the presence of a leachate mound within the waste influences groundwater flow in the bedrock underlying the waste. Understanding these two flow systems is important for evaluating the effectiveness of leachate control and containments measures. The Hartland Landfill hydraulic trap infers an inward hydraulic gradient to capture leachate from within Phase 2 of the landfill (see Hartland Landfill Site Overview, Appendix A). The ability of the hydraulic trap to maintain an inward gradient at the landfill is critical to continued compliance. The groundwater flow patterns are interpreted based on groundwater elevation. 

SCOPE OF WORK

The scope of work for Annual Reporting includes presentation of the results of the groundwater, surface water, domestic water and leachate monitoring programs as detailed below and as required in:

  • BC Guidelines for Monitoring at Municipal Solid Waste Landfills, BC Ministry of Environment

    Each annual report covers a 12-month monitoring period from April 1 to March 31 such that the 2019 annual report covers data from April 2019 through March 2020. The scope of work for the annual reporting is limited to the interpretation, evaluation and reporting of the monitoring data including trend analysis and recommendations. CRD field personnel are responsible for all field monitoring and sample collection activities.

    The CRD anticipates that the general scope of work for Miscellaneous Consulting Services under the eventual standing offer agreement could include the following technical consulting services without limitation: hydrogeological assessments, monitoring well installation, assessment and interpretation of routine and non-routine data (groundwater, surface water and vapour) , collection of non-routine data, data quality assurance and control and conformance documentation under the Landfill Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste, BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy (ENV), June 2016.
