PROJECT DESCRIPTION and SCOPE OF WORK Drinking water for the Flathead County Water District #1 - Evergreen is supplied by 11 existing wells completed in the deep artesian aquifer of the Flathead Valley. The oldest of those existing wells, the Shop Well at the District Office site, is reaching the end of its useful life. In anticipation of the eventual termination of use of the Shop Well, the District has recently purchased a tract of land on which two new wells are to be drilled. The new well site is located on the south side of West Reserve Drive just west of the Whitefish River bridge, and immediately downslope of the District's water storage tank site. The existing 14-inch diameter AC water transmission main that connects the storage tank to the District's low zone water distribution system runs across the north edge of the new well site. The District has applied for funds from the ARPA program to pay for a portion of the project. The project consists of drilling two new wells, each with an anticipated yield of 750 gpm, constructing a new well house, piping to connect the new wells to the existing transmission main, site improvements including driveway approach, parking, fencing, other security features, connection of the new supply facilities to the District's existing water supply SCADA system, landscaping, and drainage improvements. The District is seeking an engineering firm for design, permitting, bid and construction services for constructing a new well house and other project improvements. The anticipated project schedule consists of two distinct designs, bid and construction phases. Phase 1 involves design and construction of the new wells, including obtaining MT DEQ approval to locate and drill two new wells on the new well site tract, preparation of plans, specifications, bid documents, and permitting as necessary, construction services, and coordination with the District's hydrogeologist/water rights consultant, test- pumping the new wells for both water rights purposes, and determining the actual capacity of the new wells as necessary for Phase 2 design.
