RFP - For Soil Disposal Services - Pine Street Soil Stockpiles at Manhattan Drive Landfill

  • The City of Burlington Department of Public Works (“City”) is seeking proposals from qualified soil disposal contractors to remove and dispose of soil stockpiles of excavated soil at the Manhattan Drive Landfill. In 2018, excavated soil from the waterline relining project on Pine Street and Summit Street were field screened, segregated, stockpiled, and poly-encapsulated. Soils were segregated based on the following criteria observed in the field: odor, tactile characteristics, staining, and sheen. When evidence of petroleum impacts were encountered, the City’s resident soil engineer inspected the soil, recorded volatile organic compound (VOC) readings with a photo-ionization detector PID, and contacted VTDEC to confirm material could be stockpiled at the Manhattan Drive soil staging area. PID readings of stockpiled soil ranged between 18 and 2,100 ppmV. Additionally, the soil in the area of access pit excavation was pre-characterized and determined that in several locations soils contained polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) concentrations that exceeded Vermont’s Urban Background concentration of 0.58mg/kg. These soils are also stockpiled at the Manhattan Drive area. The soils have been tested, and detailed soil testing results may be made available to bidders upon request. Sampling of the stockpiled soils was performed in accordance with requirements of Casella and, based on the results, may be approved by Casella for disposal as solid waste and/or alternative daily cover at their Coventry, Vermont facility.
