The number and acreage of areas requiring treatment will vary from approximately 100 to 205 acres depending on the contract year.

The Chena River Lakes Flood Control Project is located approximately 18 miles east of Fairbanks, Alaska, near the community of North Pole. The treatment areas are described below, and consist of the Moose Creek Dam, associated access ramps, road shoulders, stability berms, first mile of Fairbanks North Star Borough levee, Project Office perimeter fence, Chena River rip-rap and other associated features. Site conditions will undoubtedly change from year to year and will therefore require modifications to the size and location of areas to be treated, as well as the total area, under this multi-year contract.

This contract shall be for one base year and two option years. The renewal of this contract for one or more option years shall be at the discretion of the Government, based upon performance, availability of funds and condition of the treatment areas. Contract renewal shall be binding on the Contractor only if a decision is made by the Government to exercise the option(s). Bidders are advised that options will be exercised at the unit price as bid for the particular option year. Extension of the contract by exercising an option will be made by the Government by written notice to the Contractor prior to March l each year. If the Government chooses to exercise its option to extend this contract, the notice of intent to the Contractor does not necessarily commit the Government to an extension. The Government will supply the contractor all necessary keys to access the treatment areas. The Contractor may be allowed permission by the Project Manager to park support equipment inside the Project Office compound for the duration of the job. All herbicides and mix materials may be stored in the Chena Project’s Haz-Mat Storage building located within the Project Office Compound. All equipment must be removed from Project lands within two weeks after the completion of the job. The Contractor may be required to move any and all equipment out of the treatment area in the event of any water impoundment.
