Engineering, Design and Permitting - UST Closure at MSC and APD

The City of Alameda is soliciting proposals from qualified service providers to design and permit the abandonment of three underground service tanks (UST) and their replacement with aboveground service tanks (AST) at the City’s Maintenance Service Center (MSC), and the excavation and replacement of a single UST at the Alameda Police Station. The City’s fueling station at the MSC is currently served by three single-wall, fiberglass USTs (one 6,000-gallon gasoline tank and two 1,000-gallon diesel fuel tanks). In order to comply with state and federal regulations, all three tanks must be closed in accordance with Alameda County Department of Environmental Health (ACDEH) requirements and associated State and Federal regulations. The City’s intent is to pursue approval to abandon these tanks in-place and install new AST’s and associated fueling equipment to meet current and future fueling needs and regulatory requirements. The City’s Police Department currently has one diesel-fueled standby/backup generator that is served by a 6,000 gallon, single-wall, fiberglass UST. In order to comply with state and federal regulations, this tank must be closed in accordance with ACDEH requirements and associated state and federal regulations. The City’s intent is to remove this tank and replace it with a new double-wall, compliant UST with a capacity of 6,000 gallons. Proposers shall read the information contained in this Request for Proposal (RFP) to understand how to submit the proposal, what documents must accompany the proposal and what legal obligations apply when the Proposer submits a proposal.
