Title of Work: Below Kennett Seepage Remediation

The US Army Corps of Engineers, Memphis District, is seeking capability statements from all Small Business sources with the capabilities and experience to perform the following work:

Project Description: The Below Kenneth Seepage Remediation will be a Stand Alone Contract, IFB, Small Business Set-Aside project, throughout the Arkansas and Missouri areas of the Memphis District. The project consist of an approximate 6 mile long area located along the left (east) bank of the St. Francis River between levee baseline stations 21/48+00 and 27/00+00. This levee reach is considered part of the 5 segment, 115.5 mile long East Bank St. Francis to Big Lake West Levee System (System 11) and is more specifically within the 17 mile stretch known as Segment 37 (Segment ID 4004000037). The approximate study area, as seen in the figure below, is directly west of Kennett, Missouri (Dunklin County) and runs south towards the Varney River sleeve levee confluence area with the St. Francis River.

The project scope includes analysis of excessive seepage potential and the subsequent remediation of critical upward seepage gradients expressed along the landside levee toe and within adjacent ditch work running parallel to the levee. Project work described in the following paragraphs includes:

  • Backfilling multiple large drainage ditches running parallel to the landside levee toe
  • Construction of continuous, semi‐pervious landside berms
  • Re‐orienting interior drainage away from the levee through a combination of existing/ new ditch work
    and re‐grading fields adjacent to the levee.

All current drainage ditches running parallel to the landside levee toe and within the proposed landside seepage berm footprint will be cleared, grubbed, and backfilled with similar material as used in the berm construction. Any structures or culverts within this footprint will also be demolished and removed. Since the current ditches are typically continuous, any orphaned sections of the ditch will also be filled in to an elevation similar to the adjacent land.
