The Town of Farmington was recently awarded a Watershed Restoration Grant from NHDES – Watershed Assistance Section to restore the Mad River in the vicinity of the Tappan Street Bridge and St. Peter Church. The purpose of this project is to obtain a state wetland permit for the project on behalf of the Town, to develop conceptual design plans, permitting design plans, and final construction drawings for the project, to develop a construction materials list for procurement, and to perform limited construction oversight during restoration. (The Farmington Department of Public Works will provide labor and equipment and limited construction oversight for restoration activities during the project.)
The Town of Farmington (Town) New Hampshire requests Qualification Packages and a Technical Proposal from civil/environmental engineering firms for services relative to the permitting and design for the stabilization and restoration of a failing section of the Mad River embankment and compromised river channel. The project site is located west of the Tappan Street Bridge and is directly adjacent to (south of) the St. Peter Church parking area. The project includes the section of failing river embankment that is located directly adjacent to the St. Peter Church, extends approximately 250-linear feet west to Route 11 and includes the removal of an existing abandoned concrete encased pipe that crosses the aforementioned section of river.
Information generated by the selected consulting firm for this project will be presented at meetings with the Town Conservation Commission, the NHDES Wetlands Bureau and other project partners including St. Peter Church.
