Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays
NEIWPCC and the Peconic Estuary Partnership (PEP) invite proposals from contractors to complete engineering designs and permitting for a habitat restoration project at Meetinghouse Creek in Riverhead NY.
The project is anticipated to start on or around February 1, 2021 and must be competed no later than December 31, 2022. The deadline to submit proposals is December 1, 2020.
PEP and the town of Riverhead have identified the Meetinghouse Creek Wetland as a priority area for habitat restoration. In 2019, the Conceptual Design for the site recommended the construction of a 1.2 acre wetland to manage stormwater runoff. When completed, the project will manage stormwater flow and stormwater-derived pollutants, improving water quality and wetland plant and wildlife biodiversity.
The current request is for services to develop complete engineering designs based on the conceptual design and to secure all necessary permits so this project is shovel-ready. This project RFP was initially posted earlier this year, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to be resuming work on this project now! More information on the project and application requirements is available on the NEIWPCC website.
