PROPOSED BID RECOMMENDATION

Department: Resource Management

Request: Authorization for the Forest Preserves of Cook County (the "Forest Preserves") to enter into a construction contract with CPMH Construction, Inc., Chicago, Illinois for drainage improvements at Eggers Marsh.

Reason: Contract #74000005477 issued under Project #18-31-106R consists of construction to replace failed stormwater infrastructure controlling drainage of the Eggers Grove wetland complex. The work includes, but is not limited to, the installation of approximately 2,500 feet of 10-inch PVC sewer pipe, three (3) water level control structures, as well as associated storm sewer infrastructure and soil erosion mitigation. These water control structures will allow for Forest Preserves to adjust water surface elevation within the marsh to mimic historic hemi-marsh conditions, restoring water flow to improve nesting conditions and habitat for target wetland bird species. Hemi-marsh is a type of wetland habitat characterized by a ratio of open water and emergent aquatic vegetation that is favorable for migratory birds and amphibians.

Additionally, the project will be partially funded through a $100,000.00 grant sub-awarded to the Forest Preserves by The Nature Conservancy via the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the receipt of which was approved by the Board of Commissioners on 12/13/2016. The contract was competitively bid, with a total of three (3) vendors responding to the solicitation for bids.

Total project costs are $328,297.50, of which $37,223.71 is being provided through grant funding, $100,000.00 has been committed by the Forest Preserves as grant match, and $60,000.00 is being contributed by Audubon Great Lakes. The remainder of the funding will be contrib...
