Authorize Execution of a Professional Services Contract with Enercon Services, Inc., in the Amount of $589,500.00 for Environmental and Engineering Consulting Services to Support the Environmental Capital Improvement Program for Remediation of Soil and Groundwater Contamination (ALL COUNCIL DISTRICTS)


It is recommended that the City Council authorize the execution of a Professional Services Contract with Enercon Services, Inc., for environmental and engineering consulting services in support of environmental capital improvement projects that remediate soil and groundwater contamination in the amount of $589,500.00. (ENV 16-05 CIP-SGW)


This Professional Services Contract provides environmental and engineering resources to support projects within the Environmental Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for contaminated soil and groundwater remediation. Professional services will enhance existing Staff resources to evaluate soil and groundwater contamination on public properties located throughout the City. Fort Worth has a rich history, and unintended residual environmental pollutants from past land uses do exist in soil and groundwater systems. When responsible parties cannot be identified, remediation efforts must be taken by property owners and/or government agencies. Staff has identified public projects that require environmental pollutants to be remediated.

Third-party professional services are used to evaluate site contamination and to prepare any site-specific subsequent design for environmental cleanup. Professional services provided under this contract will include the design of strategic remediation activities at each project site in accordance with state and federal environmental compliance to include the Clean Air Act (CAA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). This Professional Services Contract is a new contract and has not been awarded in previous years.

Capital projects which are supported by this professional services contract to begin in Fiscal Year 2016, in accordance with the Environmental CIP, include:

        1. Brennan Avenue Groundwater Remediation Project
        2. Fort Worth Rifle and Pistol Club Soil Remediation Project
        3. Greenbriar Park Soil Remediation Project
        4. Victory Forest Recreation Center Soil Remediation Project
        5. Environmental Resource Center Leaking Underground Storage Tank Mitigation Project
        6. Downtown Service Center Asbestos Abatement/Leaking Underground Storage Tank Mitigation
