Lower Black River Habitat Restoration Project Phase III Design

Funding is requested in order to complete site assessment, engineering and design for approximately 4 to 7 acres of riparian habitat restoration and 1,200 to 1,600 linear feet of aquatic habitat restoration along the left descending bank of the Black River on the former RTI Coke Works property between RM 4.7 and 5.0 (refer to Existing and Proposed Conditions Map, attached). The project includes six primary components: (1) Phase I and Phase II site assessment of the project area to determine the presence of any subsurface contamination; (2) ecological assessment of the project area in order to complete the habitat restoration design; (3) associated permitting; (4) design of remedial measures, if needed, to address any contamination present on site; (5) design of a riparian and in-stream restoration plan; and (6) preparation of bid documents for remediation and habitat restoration components.
