Request For Qualifications: Hydrogeologist Engineering Services

VILLAGE OF CHAGRIN FALLS

REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS (RFQ)

ENGINEERING SERVICES – HYDROGEOLOGIST

STATEMENT OF QUALIFICATIONS DUE: NOON, NOVEMBER 10, 2017

 

The Village of Chagrin Falls is accepting Requests for Qualifications (RFQ) from qualified consultants to provide Hydrogeological Engineering Services to analyze existing ground water supplies and assist with water supply decisions.

BACKGROUND

The Village of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, is 2.1 square miles in area located 18 miles east of the City of Cleveland, at the eastern edge of Cuyahoga County. The Chagrin River flows through the Village from the northeast to the southwest. The downtown and historic residential area of Chagrin Falls sits on a gently sloping terrace between the elevations of 890 and 930 feet above sea level. The north residential side of the Village is situated on rolling hills and the steeper slopes of the river valley at elevations between 1070 and 1120 feet. The population at the last census was 4,113. The water department serves parts of surrounding communities and has 2456 service connections.

The Village of Chagrin Falls presently obtains its water supply from two sources to meet the average daily demand of about 730,000 gpd (97.6 MCFD). The Village owned source is the Franklin Street well field that supplies about 30% of the total demand. The two wells were drilled in the mid 1960s and pump directly into the distribution system after treatment with chlorination and a poly/orthophosphate blend. The second source was brought online in 1987 via a bulk water contract with the City of Cleveland which supplies about 70% of demand. For redundancy, the Cleveland water supply is connected to the Village owned distribution system at two locations at the extreme south and north of the Village system.

The Cleveland Water contract requires the Village to purchase 500,000 gallons per day (66.8 MCFD) on a monthly average billed at a rate of $35.76 per MCF. The Village has renegotiated the contract to phase in a 38% reduction in the minimum purchase to 14,800MCF per year by the year 2021. As this reduced minimum purchase is phased in the Village will rely more heavily on the wells. Village analysis shows that by 2020 the well field production will be marginal.

PROJECT

The selected consultant will provide hydrogeological engineering services to the Village. The final work product will be a hydrogeologic engineering study of the ground water supply for the Village and recommend strategies for providing an adequate supply into the future. Continue Reading →

Fall Leaf Collection Begins Monday, October 16th

The Village of Chagrin Falls Street Department will begin the annual leaf pick-up program on Monday, October 16, 2017.  Collection will begin at the south end of town and work north. Leaves should be piled in long  windrows within 4 feet of the curb on the tree lawn wherever possible. On streets with ditches, leaves should be raked as close to the road as possible in windrows, but not blocking the ditch. Leaves should not be raked into the street as they will cause drainage problems. Branches, twigs, and flower cuttings must not be put in the leaf piles as they will clog up the vacuum equipment and slow down the pick-up considerably. Three rounds of leaf pick-up are planned through the Village, weather-permitting. lnclement weather will slow down the pick-up and may delay collection. Please have fall leaves placed out for collection NO LATER THAN Monday, November 20th. A final round of collection through the Village will start on that date. After final pick-up, residents will have to bag their leaves for collection with their regular refuse.

Check the sidebar at chagrin-falls.org for updates throughout the leaf pickup season.

Radar Monitoring Of Speed On Local Streets Underway

As a part of our ongoing efforts to ensure traffic and pedestrian safety, we have acquired a concealable traffic monitor to supplement the pneumatic tube unit that had been in use. The new unit is invisible to drivers and therefore eliminates any concern that driver behavior is changed by the presence of the detector. Results from this street monitoring will set location and time priorities for enhanced speed enforcement.

The program will survey traffic on streets with heavy use first, and then assess side streets. Each location will be monitored for a full week. The results of  recent tests are posted below.

If you wish to request your street be monitored or to volunteer your property as a location to place the unit, please contact Chief Dacek at Adacek@chagrinfallsPD.com.
