PLAN OF APPROACH FOR THE RENOURISHMENT OF THE BAREFOOT, VANDERBILT, CLAM PASS, PARK SHORE, AND NAPLES BEACHES Taylor Engineering has developed a comprehensive approach for the design, engineering, and permitting services needed to renourish the Barefoot, Vanderbilt, Clam Pass, Park Shore, and Naples beaches. To develop our approach, we considered the County’s Request for Proposal (RFP) document, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Permit number 0222355-001-JC and associated permit modifications, the conceptual engineering report provided by the County, and our knowledge of the project area and permitting process. The detailed work plan specifies steps Taylor Engineering proposes to take to complete the tasks and sub-tasks below in a cost effective and time sensitive manner. The narrative below provides a summary of the key work plan components. Notably, FDEP Permit number 0222355-001-JC requires physical and biological monitoring during the fifth year following project construction; thus, the work plan assumes the County conducted the monitoring surveys during summer 2011. The plan also assumes that project construction will occur between 11/1/2013 and 5/1/2014 as stated in the RFP. Data Review and Pre-application meeting with FDEP With a conceptual design and recommended plan already prepared and approved by the County, we will coordinate and conduct pre-application meetings with the FDEP and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). Meeting objectives will include introducing the proposed project modifications (i.e., increased fill template, additional reaches, groin removal/modification, and Doctors Pass spur jetty construction) to regulatory staff, informing them of the desired project construction timeline, and determining agency-specific items for the permit applications. During these meetings, we will discuss permitting strategies to give the County the shortest permitting timeline and to allow future construction to move forward without permitting delays. Before the scheduled meetings, we will review the results of the 2011 physical and biological monitoring surveys and report to verify that the County’s conceptual design and recommended plan remain valid. We will discuss the results and coordinate with the County as necessary to prepare for the meetings. We will also visit the project site to observe existing conditions. Engineering Design Surveys Beach profile design survey — To facilitate a prompt start to design work, we will use the 2011 physical monitoring survey as the basis for the project design modification. Where necessary, particularly in the Barefoot Beach and Clam Pass Park segments and other areas of interest such as hot spots, and structure locations, we will coordinate with Morgan & Eklund to obtain new beach profile data. As discussed below, we propose conducting a new project-wide beach profile survey with intermediate profiles (i.e., 500-foot spacing) to develop construction plans and determine accurate construction quantities; however, we assume the 2011 survey and supplemental data will sufficiently serve permitting purposes. Additionally, we assume the 2011 beach profile data, together with the

Design, Engineering and Permitting Services Re-nourishment of the Barefoot, Vanderbilt, Clam Pass, Park Shore, Naples, and Marco Island South Beaches – RFP#11-5772


2011 biological monitoring data will provide sufficient hardbottom location data in the original project area for permitting purposes. Structure surveys — Following discussions with the County to determine the priority of existing groins identified for removal/modification, we will coordinate with Morgan & Eklund to survey the structures and to conduct a detailed bathymetry survey of the Doctors Pass south jetty vicinity. The survey data will define baseline conditions for structure modifications, including design of the proposed spur jetty. If necessary, Taylor Engineering will coordinate with AVS to conduct in-water geotechnical investigations of the proposed spur jetty vicinity. The information gathered will allow Taylor Engineering to set design parameters for the required depth and capacity of the spur jetty, and provide an understanding of subgrade conditions and structure stability. Notably, if such data is currently available from historic jetty design surveys or as-built drawings, the above geotechnical surveys may prove unnecessary. Borrow area survey — We will coordinate with Morgan & Eklund to conduct an updated bathymetric survey of Borrow Area T1. We will apply the data to develop plan view and cross section plots of the borrow area and to design a dredging template that conserves as much sand as possible for future nourishment events. We assume Borrow Area T1 will require no additional geotechnical; however, we will compare the new data to past surveys to evaluate any infilling since the 2006 dredging event. Based on the conceptual engineering report, we also assume that designing and permitting the Cape Romano sand source will require no additional survey work. Pipeline corridor mapping — We will use the results of the 2011 hardbottom monitoring survey and other applicable available data to identify the required pipeline routes and booster pump operational areas for inclusion in the permit modification request drawings. If new data collection is necessary to identify the routes and operational areas, particularly for the Barefoot Beach segment, we will coordinate with our subcontractors — CSA, Sonographics, and ACA — to conduct the necessary survey work during the earliest workable conditions, likely during late spring or early summer 2012. Upon completion of the pre-construction hardbottom survey discussed below, we will re-examine the proposed routes and operational areas, and propose modifications if necessary. Joint Coastal Permit Modification Request We will use the data discussed above to develop a permit modification request to the current FDEP and USACE permits. The modification request will include a revised beach fill template based on the County’s conceptual design; a borrow area conservation plan and dredging template for Borrow Area T1 (and possibly the Cape Romano borrow area); a description of proposed groin modifications; design plans for the proposed spur jetty at Doctors Pass; a request to eliminate the turtle nesting season construction window restriction; and appropriate revisions to the physical and biological monitoring plans. We will prepare a project narrative describing the requested permit modifications; develop permit drawings to include plan and cross section views of the beach fill, borrow areas, and structures; and prepare additional reports or assessments as necessary. Notably, depending on the permitting strategies discussed at the pre-application meetings, we may prepare and submit a separate JCP application to address the spur jetty. Taylor Engineering’s coastal engineers will prepare engineering justifications for varying the width and height of the permitted beach fill template, revising the beach fill placement areas, modifying/removing existing groins, and constructing the spur jetty at Doctors Pass.

Dr. Parkinson will collaborate with our coastal engineers to design dredging templates at Borrow Area T1 and the Cape Romano borrow area to recover beach compatible sand. Dr. Parkinson will help develop permit sketches including delineation of horizontal and vertical (aka maximum depth of cut) boundaries and buffer zones of appropriate offset to ensure target avoidance, such as gravel-sized sediment. The dredge plans will maximize efficiency, and hence minimize project costs, by delineating cells with (a) horizontal boundaries logically feasible to track during dredging and (b) cut depths as suggested by the geological (i.e., vibracore) and geophysical (i.e., seismic) survey data. Additionally, the dredge plans will consider the conservation of borrow resources by allowing for practical dredge templates for future renourishment events. Design of the Barefoot Beach and Clam Pass Park sections, as well as the spur jetty, will require an evaluation of potential hardbottom impacts. We will work with CSA and Sonographics to review the side-scan and hardbottom surveys to identify hardbottom outcrops within or near the construction sites. If necessary, CSA will conduct a UMAM assessment to quantify potential hardbottom impacts. Taylor Engineering’s environmental specialists will prepare environmental assessments and Essential Fish Habitat reports addressing the proposed project modifications. Taylor Engineering will prepare a permit modification request to the Doctors Pass dredging permit to change the disposal site for beach sand placement from R57 to R59. After review of the JCP modification request, the FDEP and USACE will likely respond with requests for additional information (RAIs). RAIs typically comprise a series of questions that require additional clarification or other information regarding the proposed work. Experience indicates that similar projects have generally required responses to a minimum of two RAIs from FDEP. The USACE typically issues one RAI before the public notice and then requires a response to public comments. We will coordinate with FDEP and USACE regulatory staffs, maintain consistency between state and federal permit applications and other environmental documentation, and provide submittals in electronic and hardcopy format, per their requirements. BOEMRE Coordination The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE), formally the Mineral Management Service (MMS), manages sand resources in federal waters. Such is the case for the proposed borrow site, Borrow Area T1, which provided sand for the 2006 project. We will coordinate with BOEMRE to determine the work requirements to obtain a borrow area lease. Taylor Engineering will prepare a new environmental assessment for the borrow area, and coordinate with the County and BOEMRE as necessary to accomplish all lease application requirements. Project Coordination The single most important activity during the permitting process is the establishment and maintenance of a clear line of communications between the applicant and the participating agencies. To that end, Taylor Engineering will actively coordinate with local, state, and federal agencies staff during the application process. These agencies include, among others, Collier County, FDEP, USACE, U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and BOEMRE. We will also meet or correspond with Collier County staff members regularly to inform them of the project progress and get their concurrence on the project elements.

Additionally, we will meet with the Captiva Erosion Control District to coordinate construction of regional projects to realize cost savings. Erosion Control Line Establishment We expect FDEP will require establishment of an erosion control line (ECL) in the proposed project additions within the Barefoot Beach and Clam Pass Park areas. To begin, we will coordinate with the County to schedule a mean high water line survey, as project construction typically should occur within two years after establishing the ECL. We will schedule Morgan & Eklund to conduct the mean high water survey during the appropriate timeframe. Morgan & Eklund will conduct preliminary discussions with the FDEP Bureau of Survey and Mapping to verify the appropriate mean high water (MHW) elevation(s) for use in the survey. We will coordinate with the County to obtain appropriate property ownership information. Upon completion of the mean high water line survey, Morgan & Eklund will submit draft mean high water survey drawings to the Bureau and obtain review comments. After addressing the Bureau’s comments, Morgan & Eklund will provide us a revised drawing set. We will review the drawings and coordinate with the County to prepare a final draft for submittal to the Bureau. We will address any FDEP questions promptly to resolve outstanding issues and to obtain final state approval. Upon receiving FDEP approval, we will prepare presentations for two public forums — a public workshop and a public hearing — required to establish the surveyed mean high water line as the ECL. FDEP requires three public advertisements appearing once each week for three weeks before the scheduled events. We will coordinate with the County and FDEP to schedule and attend the workshop and hearing. Following the public hearing, we will work with the County and FDEP to incorporate any final changes to the proposed ECL. Pre-construction Surveys FDEP Permit number 0222355-001-JC requires completion of biological monitoring during the summer months before construction. Monitoring includes side-scan sonar and diver verification of the nearshore hardbottom edge, biological reef and hardbottom characterization and mapping, environmental aerials, and preparation of a biological monitoring report. We will coordinate with CSA, Sonographics, and ACA to conduct the monitoring surveys during summer 2013, the summer before construction. FDEP Permit number 0222355-001-JC also requires completion of physical monitoring before construction. Monitoring includes beach profile surveys of the project and control areas within 90 days of construction commencement. We will coordinate with our subcontractor, Morgan & Eklund, to conduct the survey during the required timeframe or request FDEP to accept the design survey, if appropriate, in lieu of a new survey. Contract Document Preparation and Bid Administration Assistance Following FDEP and USACE acceptance of the proposed project modifications and structure improvements/modifications, Taylor Engineering will prepare technical specifications and construction drawings consistent with the FDEP and USACE permits. After final approval from Collier County, Taylor Engineering will develop a final specifications package, incorporating all comments received from Collier County and signed and sealed drawings and specifications. We will provide the final construction-ready specifications and plan set in reproducible hardcopy and digital format for use in producing copies for bidding purposes. Additionally, we will provide the drawings in AutoCAD 2007 digital format on CD-ROM for distribution to the selected contractor.

Design, Engineering and Permitting Services Re-nourishment of the Barefoot, Vanderbilt, Clam Pass, Park Shore, Naples, and Marco Island South Beaches – RFP#11-5772


Following completion of the construction plans and technical specifications, we will support Collier County during the solicitation/award phase of the project. These services will include, at a minimum, the following items:      

Compile the Contract Documents to incorporate the County’s “front-end” documents. Support the County’s construction contract solicitation process and assist with the issuance of addenda to answer technical questions from contractors regarding the Contract Documents, if any. Coordinate the distribution of construction Contract Documents to prospective contractors, if required. Coordinate, prepare for, and conduct a pre-bid conference. Assist with evaluation of bids and assist with checking contractor’s references. Furnish a written recommendation to the County upon completion of the proposal evaluation.

Notably, we will coordinate with Morgan & Eklund to conduct an updated beach profile survey that will define baseline conditions for the construction plans. We will apply the data to update the beach fill template and calculate construction quantities Construction Administration and Observation We will assist Collier County with administration of the construction contract from our West Palm Beach and Jacksonville offices and from the project site. In-office duties typically include reviewing the contractor’s shop drawings and submittals, reviewing progress pay surveys and applications, providing oversight of the progress of work, and assisting with the preparation of change orders, if required. Additionally, we will review the contractor as-built surveys during construction to monitor the placed fill volume to determine project adjustments, if necessary. We will conduct the preconstruction conference with the contractor selected to construct the project, FDEP field representatives, Collier County staff, and other agency representatives. During construction, Taylor Engineering’s project and/or senior engineers will make weekly visits to the project site to attend coordination meetings and ascertain whether work is proceeding in general conformance with permit conditions and plans and specifications. We will maintain frequent communication with the County to discuss project progress and issues, and coordinate between the County and contractor as necessary. FDEP Permit number 0222355-001-JC requires monitoring of the pipeline route immediately after pipeline placement and immediately after pipeline removal. We will schedule CSA to conduct the pipeline route monitoring at the appropriate times. SEARCH will remain on-call throughout construction to resolve problems or issues that arise in the event that construction activities unearth coastal or historic artifacts. Project Close-out and Certification Upon Collier County receiving from the Contractor a request to certify the project substantially complete, we will make a substantial completion inspection of the project to determine if substantially complete. If it is not, we will develop preliminary and final punch list items for the contractor to complete or correct. With concurrence from the County, we will transmit this list to the Contractor for completion. Upon completion of outlined items, we will certify the project substantially complete. We have budgeted for one meeting/inspection.

Design, Engineering and Permitting Services Re-nourishment of the Barefoot, Vanderbilt, Clam Pass, Park Shore, Naples, and Marco Island South Beaches – RFP#11-5772


Before project close-out, we will collect and review the contractor’s final waiver and release of lien from all subcontractors and suppliers, final pay application, pre- and post-construction survey files, final contractor certification, and final contractor affidavit. We will assist the County with coordination of post-construction monitoring surveys and permit-related submittals. Following completion of the project, we will prepare and submit to the FDEP and USACE a statement of completion and a certification in accordance with the FDEP and USACE permit requirements.

INTRODUCTION Palm Beach County proposes to build a protected snorkel area on a portion of the southern

shoreline of the Loxahatchee River just west of Dubois Creek about one-half mile inland from Jupiter Inlet in Palm Beach County, Florida. Plans call for a detached, segmented breakwater to protect swimmers in the snorkel area from strong currents in the Loxahatchee River and waves produced by transiting boat traffic. Gaps in the breakwater would maintain hydraulic communication between the snorkel area and Dubois Creek and the river to minimize the breakwater’s effect on water quality. Taylor Engineering conducted a numerical model study to assess the effects of the proposed breakwater on water quality in the snorkel area and in the adjacent water of the Loxahatchee River and Dubois Creek. The permitting process for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) requires verification that the hydraulic conditions characteristic of the proposed breakwater will maintain adequate water quality within the snorkel area and not degrade the quality of adjacent waters As a measure of water quality in the snorkel area, Taylor Engineering has assumed the flushing time requirements for docking facilities specified by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD). SFWMD requirements define “flushing time” as “the time required to reduce the concentration of a conservative contaminant to 10% of its original concentration” (SFWMD, 2008, p. 19) and prescribe a maximum desirable “flushing time of less than or equal to four days … for docking facilities” (SFWMD, 2008, p. 19). In addition, SFWMD requires that contaminants “leaving the site of the docking facility will be adequately dispersed in the receiving water body so as to not cause violations of water quality standards based on circulation patterns and flushing characteristics of the receiving water body” (SFWMD, 2008, p. 19). Taylor Engineering conducted this study to demonstrate that the proposed snorkel area protected by a detached, segmented breakwater meets or exceeds these guidelines. Following this brief introduction, Chapter 2 describes the proposed snorkel area and breakwater, the general modeling procedures, and model calibration. Chapter 3 presents the hydraulic model results and Chapter 4 presents the water quality modeling results. Chapter 5 summarizes this report.

MODELING PROCEDURES, STUDY AREA, AND CALIBRATION 2.1

Procedures

Typically, tidal currents resulting from water level changes over the tidal cycle provide the primary mechanism for water exchange and mixing. Numerical hydrodynamic models provide engineers a means to evaluate tidal circulation in and around inlets, rivers, and bays. These models simulate flow by solving the governing equations for the fluid dynamic processes at a given location under specific water level and flow boundary conditions. This study employed two U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) two-dimensional finite element models (RMA2 and RMA4) to determine the effects of the proposed project on water quality. RMA2 computes water surface elevations and horizontal velocity components in two-dimensional flow fields based on tidal or riverine flow data. RMA4 applies the hydrodynamic solution from RMA2 to simulate the advection-diffusion transport process of a hypothetical contaminant introduced into a water body. Resource Management Associates, Inc. of Davis, California developed the hydrodynamic model RMA2 in 1973. Continuing modification and improvement by researchers at the USACE Waterways Experiment Station (WES) has resulted in a robust, well-established model. RMA2 solves the twodimensional transient, depth-averaged, fluid dynamic governing equations in a finite element scheme with specifications for roughness coefficients to describe bed friction, turbulent exchange coefficients for turbulence closure, and both flow and free surface boundary conditions. Additional capabilities include treatments for wetting and drying, Coriolis acceleration, wind stress, dynamic bed friction assignment by depth, Peclet number definition of turbulent exchange coefficients, and one-dimensional storage and flow structures. RMA4, another Resource Management Associates program modified and improved by researchers at WES, applies the hydrodynamic solutions from RMA2 to simulate depth-averaged advection-diffusion transport processes. RMA4 can simulate the fate of constituents as conservative or non-conservative with a first order decay. Successful applications include investigating the physical processes of migration and mixing of a soluble substance in reservoirs, rivers, bays, estuaries and coastal zones; defining horizontal salinity distributions; tracing temperature effects from power plants; calculating residence times of harbors or basins; optimizing the placement of outfalls; identifying potential critical areas for oil spills or other contaminant spread; evaluating turbidity plume extent; and monitoring other water quality criterion within game and fish habitats.

2


Therefore, the RMA2 model, calibrated with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data and predicted tides, provides the hydrodynamic solution for the RMA4 model. The RMA4 solution estimates the flushing time (i.e., the time over which the tidal exchange reduces the concentration of the contaminant in the marina basin). 2.2

Study Area and Model Domain

The Dubois Park snorkel area lies on the south bank of the Loxahatchee River about one-half mile west of Jupiter Inlet and the Atlantic Ocean. Figure 2.1 shows the extent of the model domain and locates the Dubois Park project site in Palm Beach County, Florida. The project site consists of the snorkel area and a detached, segmented breakwater lying parallel to the Loxahatchee River. Figure 2.2 locates the project site on the Loxahatchee River near Jupiter Inlet, just west of Dubois Creek and details the proposed breakwaters. Gaps in the proposed breakwater would preserve hydraulic communication between the waters in the snorkel area, Dubois Creek, the Loxahatchee River, Jupiter Inlet, and the Atlantic Ocean. Tidal waters from the Atlantic Ocean enter and exit the snorkel area through the gaps and maintain water quality. The model includes the Loxahatchee River, and extends north along Jupiter Sound to Hobe Sound State Park and south along the Intracoastal Waterway (ICWW) to Lake Worth Creek. The snorkel area covers 44,960 square feet (ft2) and has an average depth of 5.4 ft at mean tide level (MTL). The plan for the snorkel area does not include any dredging of the river bed. Figure 2.3 shows five gaps in the breakwaters, the line of the longest distance between gaps (540 ft), and the section line through the breakwater. Figure 2.4 shows the breakwater crest lies at 0.5 ft-NAVD and varied gap width from 30 – 42 ft at mean high water (MHW). The east end of the snorkel area will remain open to allow unimpeded flow between snorkel area and the Loxahatchee River and Dubois Creek. Survey data collected by Lidberg Land Surveyors in 2003 provided bathymetry around the jetties. Another survey conducted by Lidberg in 2007 provided bathymetry data in the Loxahatchee River and at the project site. The USACE ICWW survey data from June 2007, USGS quad maps, USGS aerial photographs, and NOAA nautical charts provided additional bathymetric and topographic data for the model. Figure 2.5 shows the model mesh and the bathymetry at the project site.

Tidal Characteristics and Model Calibration

Taylor Engineering collected tidal stage and velocity data at five points in the project area. Figure 2.6 shows these points and the NOAA tidal datum benchmark station at the Jupiter Inlet Jetty (Station 8722495). The Marina Tide Station (S1) and the Jupiter Inlet Jetty Station (S2) provided tidal stage information. Velocity Stations V1, V2, and V3 provided velocity data collected over the water column with an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP). Extremely shallow water depths at Velocity Station V4 prohibited ADCP use. Taylor Engineering collected velocity data at this location with a propellerdriven velocimeter. Table 2.1 shows the benchmark data, which indicate a 2.5-ft mean tidal range for the semidiurnal tides (two varying high and low tides per day) occurring in the area.

Model Parameters and Boundary Conditions

A Manning’s roughness coefficient (Manning’s n) value of 0.030 provided the bed friction boundary condition within the model. The Florida Department of Transportation recommends n = 0.022 – 0.028 for earth channels (FDOT, 2004); the USACE recommends n = 0.02 – 0.025 for sand channels (Donnell et al., 2005); Chow (1959) recommends n = 0.035 for rivers. A turbulent exchange coefficient value of 50 lb-sec/ft2 controlled the turbulence closure for the hydrodynamic model. This value falls well within the 20 – 100 lb-sec/ft2 range the model developers recommend for flow in tidal estuaries (Donnell et al., 2005). Grid Peclet number control automatically assigned the model diffusion coefficient for the transport model. The actual diffusion coefficient averaged 3 ft2/s (0.3 m2/s) or less for all model simulations. The model calibration applied time-varying free surface water level boundary conditions from September 16 – 20, 2008 at Hobe Sound, seaward of Jupiter Inlet, and Lake Worth Creek. NOAA tide predictions provided water level boundary conditions for the model. 2.5

Model Calibration Results

A model’s calibration demonstrates its capability to reproduce observed hydrodynamic conditions. Figures 2.7 and 2.8 compare the modeled water levels with the measured water levels at the Marina Tide Station and NOAA predicted water levels at the Jupiter Inlet Jetty Station. The correlation coefficient provides a statistical measure of the correspondence of two data sets. Two coincident data sets have a correlation coefficient of 1.0 (i.e., the data sets match), while correlation coefficients approaching zero indicate less correspondence between the data sets. The figures indicate the correlation coefficient (r2) for each time series. The modeled and measured water level data show good agreement for both stations with correlation coefficients of 0.97 or more.

Figures 2.9 – 2.12 show plots of the measured velocities against the RMA2 model depth averaged velocities. Figure 2.13 compares all model velocities. Velocity measurements, taken with the ADCP (Figures 2.9 – 2.11), show fairly good agreement with the model results. Figure 2.10 shows the model reproduced the very low measured velocities inside the marina area (V2). In contrast, Figure 2.12 shows the model underestimated measured velocities at the Dubois Creek Bridge (V4). Shallow water in this location made measurements difficult. The low model diffusion coefficient (0.3 m2/s) indicates that the model relies on advection to transport contaminants through the system. Therefore, the underestimated water velocities at some locations indicates a more conservative flushing model (i.e., lower velocities would yield higher flushing times) for these portions of the study area. Overall, the comparison of measured and model data indicate that the model satisfactorily reflects the physical processes in the study area and should provide conservative flushing time estimates.

HYDRODYNAMIC MODELING AND ANALYSIS 3.1

Overview

As noted in Chapter 2, the project area experiences a semidiurnal tide with a 2.5-ft mean tidal range. This chapter compares hydrodynamic model results for the project site before and after construction of the proposed snorkel area breakwater. Taylor Engineering simulated a neap tide for this study. The comparison examines tidal stages and tidal discharges at various points near the snorkel area. Figure 3.1 shows the sample point locations for these model results.

Tidal Stage Comparison

Figure 3.1 shows the modeled tidal stage sample points (S1, S2, S3, and L1) in the proposed snorkel area and the Loxahatchee River. Figures 3.2 – 3.5 compare the tidal stage for the existing conditions and with the proposed breakwater in place. The figures demonstrate that construction of the breakwaters have a negligible effect on the tidal stage at these points. Figure 3.6 compares the tidal stage

18


at opposite ends of the snorkel area after construction of the proposed breakwaters. The figure indicates that no phase difference exists within the proposed snorkel area. 3.3

Velocity Distribution Comparison

Figure 3.1 shows sample lines for velocity distributions across the Loxahatchee River upstream and downstream of the proposed snorkel area. Figures 3.7 – 3.14 compare the velocity distribution at the indicated sample lines for the existing condition and with the proposed breakwater in place. Figures 3.7 – 3.10 show the velocity distributions during peak flood flows and Figures 3.11 – 3.14 during peak ebb flows. The figures demonstrate that construction of the breakwaters only have an appreciable effect on the hydraulic conditions in the immediate vicinity of the breakwaters (Figures 3.8, 3.9, 3.12, and 3.13). At these locations the flow distribution shifts slightly to the north at the south side and middle of the river. The breakwaters have a negligible effect on the velocities on the north side of the river. The plots indicate velocity increases of less than 0.5 ft/s and decreases less than 1 ft/s. As one might expect, the largest velocity decreases occur within 100 ft of the proposed breakwater. The velocity distributions further upstream and downstream of the breakwaters (Figures 3.7, 3.10, 3.11, and 3.14) show no appreciable change from the existing velocity distributions. 3.4

Particle Flow Trace

Figure 3.15 shows a particle flow trace of the snorkel area. A particle flow trace follows the path of theoretical particles released into model and carried by the simulated currents. The figure demonstrates that the breakwaters should not cause local circulation pockets which might trap floating debris in the snorkel area.

The water quality portion of this study examines three areas of interest within the Dubois Park project area (Figure 4.1): the proposed snorkel area, a swimming area ― commonly known as Pee-Wee Beach ― on Dubois Creek just south of the Loxahatchee River, and Dubois Creek itself. To examine the breakwater’s effect on the snorkel area, Taylor Engineering treated the snorkel area as a flushing study marina basin and determined its flushing time — defined by SFWMD — by tracking the decay of the concentration of a conservative contaminant from the snorkel area over a 100 hour (hr) period. Taylor Engineering also examined the contaminant levels in the surrounding waters of the Loxahatchee River and Dubois Creek. To examine the breakwater’s effect on contaminant removal from Pee-Wee Beach and Dubois Creek, Taylor Engineering modeled the decay of the concentration of a conservative contaminant initially placed in each area under the existing configuration (i.e., without the breakwater) and with the breakwater in place. 4.2

Boundary Conditions

The calibrated RMA2 hydrodynamic model supplied water depth and current velocity information to the water quality model (RMA4). For this study, the hydrodynamic model simulated a neap tide (October 17 – 20, 2007). Each water quality model simulation begins with a uniform contaminant concentration of 100 ppt in the area of interest during high tide conditions to maximize the mass of contaminant in the system. A concentration of 100 ppt allows a direct conversion to a percentage of the initial concentration.

Figure 4.2 shows the initial contamination levels and the sample points for the snorkel area simulations. The neap tide provided the longest flushing time and Figures 4.3 and 4.4 plot the concentration versus time for a contaminant originating in the snorkel area and mixing with a neap tide. Figure 4.3 shows the contaminant concentrations at four sampling points in the snorkel area (Points S1, S2, S3, and S6 as shown in Figure 4.2). The figure demonstrates that contamination levels drop below 10% of the initial contamination level within 5 hrs. Examination of sample points to the east of the snorkel area and in the Pee-Wee Beach and Dubois Creek area (DC1, PW1, PW2, DC3, DC4) showed negligible traces of contamination migrated from the snorkel area to these locations. Figure 4.4 shows four sample points within the adjacent waters of Loxahatchee River (Points L1, L3, L5, and L6) just north of the breakwaters. At these locations the contaminant concentration reached a maximum of 10% and quickly dropped back to negligible levels within 5 hrs.

SUMMARY Palm Beach County proposes to build a protected snorkel area on a portion of the southern

shoreline of the Loxahatchee River just west of Dubois Creek about one-half mile inland from Jupiter Inlet in Palm Beach County, Florida. Plans call for a detached, segmented breakwater to protect swimmers in the snorkel area from waves produced by transiting boat traffic and strong currents in the Loxahatchee River. Gaps in the breakwater would maintain hydraulic communication with the river to minimize the breakwater’s effect on water quality. Taylor Engineering conducted the present study to determine the hydrodynamic and flushing characteristics of the snorkel area and the breakwater’s effect on the flushing characteristics of Dubois Creek. The study showed that the presence of the breakwaters did not effect the tidal stage. The breakwaters had a negligible effect on the velocity distribution of waters in the Loxahatchee River upstream and downstream of the project site. At the project site, the breakwaters caused the velocity to decrease on the south side of the Loxahatchee river ― immediately adjacent to the breakwaters ― and increase slightly at the center of the river. The velocities did not change on the north bank of the Loxahatchee River. Also, the particle flow traces developed from the model results demonstrate that water flows freely through the breakwater system with no local circulations pockets which might trap floating debris within the system. The study shows that the concentration of a hypothetical conservative contaminant in the snorkel area falls to 10% of its original concentration within 5 hrs. The model also indicates that contaminants leaving the snorkel area quickly disperse in the Loxahatchee River and have a negligible effect on the waters in Dubois Creek. Additionally, the study found that the presence of the breakwater had a negligible effect on the removal of contaminants originating in either the Pee-Wee Beach swim area near the mouth of Dubois Creek or at the south end of Dubois Creek.

Coastal Engineering Since its inception, Taylor Engineering has helped federal, state, and local government agencies identify causes and develop innovative solutions for all types of coastal problems. Ranging from specific to comprehensive, these projects address plan formulation, coastal processes analyses, and shore protection. Project elements include, in part, sediment budgets, littoral drift, coastal structures, wave generation and propagation, wave and inlet hydrodynamics and sediment transport, beach restoration, economics, storm impacts, and post-storm beach assessment and management. Coastal Processes, Modeling, and Analysis Understanding a region’s coastal processes and their effects on the coastal system is a crucial element of nearly every coastal engineering project. Taylor Engineering has extensive experience in every aspect of coastal processes analyses including shoreline changes, beach volume changes, empirical orthogonal analyses, sediment budgets, littoral transport (by waves, tides, and winds), storm effects, inlet management, sand bypassing, storm damage assessments, wave modeling, tidal hydrodynamics modeling, and beach modeling. We apply wave models (USACE models RCPWAVE, WISWAVE, and STWAVE; REFDIF; FUNWAVE; MIKE21; and in-house developed models) to investigate borrow site mining impacts on fronting beaches, analyze the effects of hardbottom on nearshore beach behavior, assess the effects of structures on adjacent shorelines and shoal systems, analyze inlet shoaling, estimate sediment transport in the littoral zone, design coastal structures, and provide input to shoreline change and dune erosion models. Example applications include USACE projects in Ft. George Island, Jacksonville Beach, St. Augustine Inlet, Martin County, Ft. Pierce Beach, Amelia Island, Key Biscayne, Panama City Beach, and Gasparilla Island; and local government projects in Marco Island, Ft. Pierce Beach, Walton County, Destin, Okaloosa Island, Eglin AFB, Jupiter Island, and St. Johns County. For projects in coastal Louisiana, Texas, and South Carolina, we applied STWAVE to evaluate nearshore wave conditions and provide radiation stresses to produce wave-induced water level changes in the hydrodynamic model ADCIRC. Taylor Engineering’s beach modeling applications include storm erosion modeling and shoreline change modeling to assess the storm damage risk to upland development, to help design shore protection projects, and to quantify beach restoration benefits. Modeling capabilities include GENESIS, DNRBS, SBEACH, EDUNE, CCCL, MIKE21, n-line model, and in-house developed models. Selected applications include USACE projects in Amelia Island, St. Augustine Beach, Ponce De Leon Inlet, New Smyrna Beach, Ft. Pierce Beach, Panama City Beach, and Key Biscayne; and local sponsor projects in Walton County, Destin, Okaloosa Island, and Eglin AFB. We also apply tidal hydrodynamics models (ADCIRC, RMA2, FESWMS, MIKE21) to design inlet jetties, to compute storm surge, to assess inlet impacts on adjacent beaches, to examine flushing and water quality, and to define inlet shoal dredging templates by examining impacts on inlet shoaling, navigation, and adjacent beaches. We also model tidal currents to estimate impacts of thermal plumes on sediment entrainment, to design coastal structures at inlets, and to quantify water quality for beach fill projects. Applications include local and/or USACE projects at Marco Island, East Pass, Nassau Sound, St. Johns River Entrance, St. Augustine Inlet, Ponce De Leon Inlet, Ft. Pierce Inlet, and Charlotte Harbor. In partnership with URS, Taylor Engineering is developing ADCIRC and STWAVE models for the South Carolina coastline to determine storm surge caused by hurricanes.

Beach Restoration Projects Taylor Engineering has been responsible for plan formulation, design, permitting, geotechnical, surveying, construction observation, monitoring, or economic elements of USACE shore restoration projects in Lee County, Venice Beach, Key Biscayne, Lido Key, St. Lucie County, Martin County, St. Johns County, Nassau County, Bay County, and Walton County in Florida. We have also been responsible for similar elements of beach restoration projects for local government and state agencies in north Jupiter Island, Jupiter/Carlin, Ocean Ridge, Hillsborough Inlet, Bakers Haulover Inlet, Summer Haven, New Smyrna Beach, Anastasia State Park, Walton County, east and west Destin, Okaloosa Island, and Eglin Air Force Base. We have designed and permitted over 20 federal and non-federal beach nourishment projects, which collectively have or will restore over 45 miles of beach with over 18,000,000 cubic yards of sand. Currently, the company is engaged in the design and permitting of eight additional non-federal beach nourishment projects, which will restore about 40 miles of coastline with over 10 million cubic yards of sand. The firm has prepared both regional- and project-level feasibility studies and plan formulation documents for over 50 miles of beaches.

Marine Structures Taylor Engineering has experience in the evaluation, design, and permitting of coastal and waterfront structures including jetties, groins, breakwaters, seawalls, marine and land-based pile foundation structures, stone revetments, bulkheads, piers, docks, and hydraulic control structures.

Breakwaters, Groins, and Other Erosion Control Structures Taylor Engineering has conducted numerous shore protection structure projects requiring design, permitting, bid assistance, and construction-phase services. These projects included a variety of erosion control, shoreline stabilization and stone revetment, projects. Among these, we recently completed construction of a 3,000-foot-long revetment along the shores of the Intracoastal Waterway in Flagler County. Taylor Engineering designed a complete revetment system to mitigate erosion and protect the shoreline at dredged material management area FL8. The project also included design for shoreline public pedestrian walkways and access bridges. Other revetment designs include projects to protect one of the main runways of the St. Augustine Municipal Airport, 1,200 feet of shoreline along a county park in Ft. Pierce, and the shoreline of Lake Mangonia. Additionally, Taylor Engineering designed a system of stone breakwaters for construction in Jupiter Inlet; these breakwaters protect a recreational snorkeling area associated with Palm Beach County’s Dubois Park restoration project. Taylor Engineering has a proven track record in the planning, design, rehabilitation, and permitting of bulkhead; groin; seawall; and coastal and marine structure projects. Taylor Engineering designed, prepared plans and specifications, and provided construction phase services for a complete restoration project for the Jupiter Inlet jetty — a combined steel sheet pile and riprap structure — in Palm Beach County. Our previous bulkhead and seawall evaluation, restoration, or design work includes design for an aluminum sheet pile seawall to protect an eroding shoreline along a county park in Stuart, Florida. We evaluated damage, monitored structural movement, made preliminary recommendations, and developed final construction documents for the preservation of a 160year-old coquina bulkhead wall on the Matanzas River just inside St. Augustine Inlet. We also designed a seawall reconstruction project along Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach. This project applied concrete soldier piles to stabilize and replace the existing shoreline stabilization. Most recently, we designed and then oversaw construction of an emergency seawall to protect the Town of Lantana’s oceanfront park from severe coastal erosion. Our design for the Dubois Park restoration project in Jupiter Inlet also addresses new bulkhead and seawall features as well as riprap wall toe protection.

Piles and Pile-Supported Structures Taylor Engineering’s successful experience extends to the design and construction oversight for piles and pilesupported structures. In the design of these specialized structures, our engineers apply a range of design tools from classic hand calculations to state-of-the-art software to account for the unique interactions between soil, water, and structural elements. We have designed and built projects with every type of pile material (timber, steel, concrete, and composite); shapes (square, rounds, pipe, helical, and built-up); application (bearing, lateral support, and guide); and installation techniques (driven, jetted, vibrated, pressed-in, and auger-cast). Completed pile supported structure projects include simple mooring piles for marinas, mooring dolphins for ship berths, pile-support docks, floating dock anchor piles, and pile foundations to support a range of structures. Recently, Taylor Engineering completed design, permitting and construction phases for the Miramar Parking Structure in Walton County. The project included 181 prestressed concrete piles supporting a hurricane resistant, 141-space public beach access parking area. The pile design accounted for poor soils conditions marked by pockets of muck soils through the use of Pile Dynamic Analyzer testing. This construction monitoring procedure provides a method of verifying pile bearing capacities. With the test results, engineers correlated required pile driving conditions (blow-counts) to the pile capacity to field-certify each pile’s load rating.

Borrow Area Design & Sand Compatibility Taylor Engineering and RWParkinson Consulting have extensive experience in conducting sand source investigations and the design and permitting of borrow areas for beach nourishment activities. Taylor Engineering has conducted several sand source investigations for various government entities throughout Florida including Eglin Air Force Base, Okaloosa County, City of Destin, Walton County, and the USACE. Projects typically include development of geophysical and geotechnical data collection and analysis programs to locate beach quality sand reserves for future beach management activities. The programs include reconnaissance and detail phase sub-bottom seismic and bathymetric surveys, cultural resource surveys, and vibracore collection. Engineering evaluations include characterization of native beach sand and potential borrow material, overfill analysis, design of borrow area dredging templates, and borrow area excavation impact analyses. For over a decade, Dr. Parkinson has participated in beach nourishment projects throughout Florida. RWParkinson Consulting has designed field and laboratory methods to characterize native beach sedimentology and assess fill compliance in real time during project construction. This includes collecting samples at an appropriate time and density to characterize beach granularmetrics, composition, and Munsell color. Dr. Parkinson’s continental margin sedimentation and stratigraphy knowledge has contributed to the completion of numerous successful offshore sand source investigations; including the delineation of beach compatible borrow areas of suitable volume for Santa Rosa County, Volusia County, and Gulf County. Dr. Parkinson bases his investigations on an integrated field program (i.e., bathymetry, side-scan, seismic & magnetometer, vibracore) designed to verify the presence of beach compatible sand sources as required by regulatory agencies. RWParkinson Consulting is also keenly aware of the economic and social consequences that emerge when gravelsize limestone, ‘rock’, shell, or other material is discharged onto the beach during project construction. To minimize the economic and social consequences, RWParkinson routinely applies desktop, field, and laboratory analyses to areas with a high probability of encountering gravel-sized sediment. The firm has worked on several Sand Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Plans designed to ensure the dredged material placed on a beach is compliant with specific permit conditions throughout construction. In 2009 RWParkinson Consulting

Design, Engineering and Permitting Services Re-nourishment of the Barefoot, Vanderbilt, Clam Pass, Park Shore, Naples, and Marco Island South Beaches – RFP#11-5772


collaborated with Martin County and an environmental consulting firm to develop a Sand QA/QC Plan, which incorporated a newly developed field method for quantifying beach fill granularmetrics in real time. This methodology is based upon field data derived from nested sieve analysis instead of the qualitative method of visual inspection. The goal of this new methodology is to reduce error while not interfering with the tempo and therefore costs of construction. The content and intent of the FDEP QAQC Plan has been under review for several years. Revisions have been recommended and a new template is now being evaluated. RWParkinson Consulting will continue to track the evolution of the Sand Plan to ensure the appropriate version is submitted on behalf of Collier County.

Federal, State, and Local Permitting and Environmental Services Taylor Engineering takes great care to integrate its projects with the natural environment. We have significant experience with the full range of environmental issues commonly encountered during coastal, marine, and waterfront projects including environmental permitting (USACE, state, and local), submerged land lease issues, habitat and impact assessment, mitigation design and long-term monitoring, and field data collection and analysis. Many of Taylor Engineering’s water resource projects have required environmental investigations and assessments, environmental permitting, and coordination with state and federal environmental and regulatory agencies. We have a clear understanding of permitting issues, and over the years we have developed valuable professional relationships with both state and federal regulatory agencies. We have permitted over 20 beach restoration projects, both federal and non-federal, in Florida which have or will restore over 45 miles of beach with over 18,000,000 cubic yards of sand. Environmental issues for these projects include the protection of water quality, seagrasses, nearshore hardbottom, sea turtles, shorebirds, fish, and coral. We are currently permitting five additional beach restoration projects. Our project team’s experience with wetlands, endangered/threatened species, and mitigation has proven valuable during the permitting process. For example, we successfully created five acres of hardbottom habitat to mitigate for beach nourishment impacts from the Ft. Pierce Shore Protection Project. We developed a mitigation plan involving the creation of 17 acres of hardwood wetlands to offset wetland impacts from Dredged Material Management Area SJ-14 in St. Johns County. During our work on the Sebastian Inlet Channel dredging project, to meet the project’s environmental challenges, we developed mitigation plans including seagrass restoration, seagrass protection, and funding for a proposed stormwater treatment facility in the local area. Our work on numerous marina projects provides a strong background on submerged lands issues. Our team is accustomed to reviewing, revising, coordinating, and developing submerged lands leases and easements for marina and recreational marine projects. This expertise has played an integral role in projects including the Fort Pierce Marina Expansion project in St. Lucie County, the Waterfront Commons Floating Dock project in West Palm Beach, and the Dubois Park Redevelopment project in Palm Beach County. Taylor Engineering’s experience with the USACE, the FDEP, the water management districts, and local governments has often proved invaluable in securing permits for marina and waterfront development projects. Taylor Engineering has extensive experience designing, monitoring, and performing cost benefit analyses of coastal ecosystem restorations. We have considered restoration issues as part of practical solutions to public and private development and management needs. Our involvement in this type of work extends over most of the firm’s 25+ year history.

We have designed artificial reefs, beaches and dunes, foredune and backdune vegetation communities, mangrove and herbaceous estuarine wetlands, and coastal freshwater swamps. We have monitored the success of our plans, using adaptive management techniques to ensure successful, cost-effective completion of our projects. We have provided these services throughout Florida and other states along the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts. In the Florida panhandle, we have developed beach and dune restoration projects in Okaloosa and Walton Counties. In Mexico Beach (Gulf County), we analyzed and designed an herbaceous wetland project similar to others we have developed around the state. In summary, experience with regulatory agencies and public coordination often plays a key role in the success of our projects. We have coordinated with the FDEP and the USACE on beach restoration, coastal structures, drainage, dredging, and marine structures projects. We are strong proponents of feedback and coordination with our clients and project stakeholders during the development of any project. We often work with government staff to communicate information concerning a project’s progress and to receive community input.

FINANCIAL STRENGTH R. Bruce Taylor Ph.D., P.E. founded Taylor Engineering, Inc. in 1983. Twenty-eight years later, the firm comprises a vibrant employee-owned organization. We have developed into an in-depth, professional services organization with multiple offices capable of addressing the full spectrum of engineering and environmental issues dealing with water and sediments in natural environments. Taylor Engineering holds a D&B rating of 3A2, which indicates a net worth of between $1 million and $10 million and a “good” credit appraisal. As verification of our financial stability, this section concludes with Taylor Engineering’s most recent audit summary, which an outside, professional source prepared. We believe financial responsibility is much more than the information provided above. Financial responsibility refers to a comprehensive, accountable, sustainable, and transparent approach to managing finances and risk while supporting the best interests of employees and clients and giving back to the community. Led by an internal CPA (a Taylor Engineering officer) and reviewed by both an external accounting firm (represented on our Board of Directors as an advisor) and a business valuation firm, our accounting practices adhere to strict principles and standards. Taylor Engineering has practiced sound financial judgment for the past 28 years and consistently realized a modest profit every year. Recently, during these uncertain economic times, we implemented appropriate cost-control measures to remain a financially stable company as we continue to provide quality work products. In fact, critical components to financial responsibility include employee, client, and social responsibilities. We value all of our employees (valuable resources to our clients) and take every effort to protect their jobs. In the best interests of both our employees as well as our clients, we have developed and implemented measures to save jobs (while sacrificing company profit) yet remain financially stable; thus, when called upon, we stand better prepared to serve our clients with our retained staff. As just one example, we cross train employees to broaden staff capabilities and facilitate internal redistribution of professional resources. This measure further advances one of our core values — teamwork. Through these measures, we maintain more staff availability than many other companies (even those with considerably higher revenues) that have cut staff to maximize company profit — a common practice in this economy. Since Taylor Engineering’s incorporation, ownership changes have occurred to establish an Employee Stock

Ownership Plan and to transfer ownership among Taylor Engineering employees. The company has not been involved in any recent mergers or acquisitions nor does it foresee any such activities.

BACKGROUND / RESPONSIBILITIES

KENNETH R. CRAIG, P.E. VICE PRESIDENT OF COASTAL ENGINEERING

EDUCATION University of Florida, M.E., 1994, Coastal & Oceanographic Engineering University of Florida, B.S., 1992, Civil Engineering

Mr. Craig serves as Vice President of Coastal Engineering. As such, he holds overall responsibility for the company’s coastal engineering operations. He possesses a unique, experience-based skill set that spans a broad range of coastal zone issues. Coming from earlier roles as engineer and director of the Coastal Engineering group, he mentors younger staff, coordinates the group’s strategic plan development and implementation, and ensures consistency with the corporate strategic plan. Mr. Craig’s formal academic training focused on coastal process analyses (i.e., shoreline evolution and sediment transport, wave and hydrodynamic modeling) and their impacts on major shore protection projects. He frequently acts as project liaison to local, state, and federal agencies regarding project related issues such as design, permitting, and funding options. In addition to his beach-related experience, Mr. Craig has accumulated extensive inlet-based knowledge through development of inlet management plans and other studies throughout Florida. He has examined sand bypassing mechanisms, developed wave refraction/diffraction models near inlets, and developed recommendations to improve both sand bypassing and navigation at numerous tidal inlets. Mr. Craig also has designed several major coastal structures.

PROJECT EXPERIENCE 

FPL St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant Seawall, Florida (2010 – Ongoing) — Served in lead QA/QC role for this project to provide coastal and structural engineering design and environmental permitting for a seawall and breakwater/artificial reef to protect the nuclear power plant's discharge canal and headwall structure. Taylor Engineering staff members are currently preparing design alternatives for the shoreline protection structure and reef.

Lantana Emergency Seawall, Palm Beach County, Florida (2009) — Served in lead QA/QC role for this project to construct an emergency seawall to protect the Town of Lantana’s waterfront park. Taylor Engineering designed the structure with readily available steel sheetpile and helical anchor tiebacks under the existing buildings.

Exhibit IV: Additional Terms and Conditions for RFP

1. Insurance and Bonding Requirements The Vendor shall at its own expense, carry and maintain insurance coverage from responsible companies duly authorized to do business in the State of Florida as set forth in the Insurance and Bonding attachment of this solicitation. The Vendor shall procure and maintain property insurance upon the entire project, if required, to the full insurable value of the scope of work. The County and the Vendor waive against each other and the County’s separate Vendors, Contractors, Design Consultant, Subcontractors agents and employees of each and all of them, all damages covered by property insurance provided herein, except such rights as they may have to the proceeds of such insurance. The Vendor and County shall, where appropriate, require similar waivers of subrogation from the County’s separate Vendors, Design Consultants and Subcontractors and shall require each of them to include similar waivers in their contracts. Collier County shall be responsible for purchasing and maintaining, its own liability insurance. Certificates issued as a result of the award of this solicitation must identify “For any and all work performed on behalf of Collier County.” The General Liability Policy provided by Vendor to meet the requirements of this solicitation shall name Collier County, Florida, as an additional insured as to the operations of Vendor under this solicitation and shall contain a severability of interests provisions. Collier County Board of County Commissioners shall be named as the Certificate Holder. The "Certificate Holder" should read as follows: Collier County Board of County Commissioners Naples, Florida The amounts and types of insurance coverage shall conform to the minimum requirements set forth in Insurance and Bonding attachment, with the use of Insurance Services Office (ISO) forms and endorsements or their equivalents. If Vendor has any self-insured retentions or deductibles under any of the below listed minimum required coverage, Vendor must identify on the Certificate of Insurance the nature and amount of such self- insured retentions or deductibles and provide satisfactory evidence of financial responsibility for such obligations. All self-insured retentions or deductibles will be Vendor’s sole responsibility. Coverage(s) shall be maintained without interruption from the date of commencement of the Work until the date of completion and acceptance of the scope of work by the County or as specified in this solicitation, whichever is longer. The Vendor and/or its insurance carrier shall provide 30 days written notice to the County of policy cancellation or non-renewal on the part of the insurance carrier or the Vendor. The Vendor shall also notify the County, in a like manner, within twenty-four (24) hours after receipt, of any notices of expiration, cancellation, non-renewal or material change in coverage or limits received by Vendor from its insurer and nothing contained herein shall relieve Vendor of this requirement to provide notice. In the event of a reduction in the aggregate limit of any policy to be provided by Vendor hereunder, Vendor shall immediately take steps to have the aggregate limit reinstated to the full extent permitted under such policy.


Should at any time the Vendor not maintain the insurance coverage(s) required herein, the County may terminate the Agreement or at its sole discretion shall be authorized to purchase such coverage(s) and charge the Vendor for such coverage(s) purchased. If Vendor fails to reimburse the County for such costs within thirty (30) days after demand, the County has the right to offset these costs from any amount due Vendor under this Agreement or any other agreement between the County and Vendor. The County shall be under no obligation to purchase such insurance, nor shall it be responsible for the coverage(s) purchased or the insurance company or companies used. The decision of the County to purchase such insurance coverage(s) shall in no way be construed to be a waiver of any of its rights under the Contract Documents. If the initial or any subsequently issued Certificate of Insurance expires prior to the completion of the scope of work, the Vendor shall furnish to the County renewal or replacement Certificate(s) of Insurance not later than ten (10) calendar days after the expiration date on the certificate. Failure of the Vendor to provide the County with such renewal certificate(s) shall be considered justification for the County to terminate any and all contracts. 2. Offer Extended to Other Governmental Entities Collier County encourages and agrees to the successful vendor extending the pricing, terms and conditions of this solicitation or resultant contract to other governmental entities at the discretion of the successful vendor. 3. Additional Items and/or Services During the contract term, Collier County reserves the right to add related items and/or services upon negotiation of a satisfactory price by the Project Manager and Vendor. 5. Use of Subcontractors Bidders on any service related project, including construction, must be qualified and directly responsible for 80% or more of the solicitation amount for said work. 5. County’s Right to Inspect The County or its authorized Agent shall have the right to inspect the Vendor’s facilities/project site during and after each work assignment the Vendor is performing. 6. Additional Terms and Conditions of Contract Collier County has developed standard contracts/agreements, approved by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC). The selected Vendor shall be required to sign a standard Collier County contract within twenty one (21) days of Notice of Selection for Award. The County reserves the right to include in any contract document such terms and conditions, as it deems necessary for the proper protection of the rights of Collier County. A sample copy of this contract is available upon request. The County will not be obligated to sign any contracts, maintenance and/or service agreements or other documents provided by the Vendor. 7. Site Inspection If services to be provided involve or are related to a physical site(s), including, but not limited to: design services for construction, physical monitoring, environmental studies, inspections or other similar activities, prior to submission of proposal, proposers shall visit the site(s) with the County project manager to become familiar with local conditions that may in any manner affect

Comment [SJS3]: Do we meet this requirement? If not, change it to reflect our subcontractors percentage.


performance of the Work. This site visit shall be documented in writing by the proposer with sign-off by the County project manager; this documentation shall be submitted with the proposal. The proposal will be deemed non-responsive if the site visit documentation is not presented to the County in the proposer’s submitted proposal materials. Upon award of the contract, subsequent site visits shall be at intervals appropriate to the stage of the project, as determined by the County project manager. No plea of ignorance of conditions or difficulties that may exist or conditions or difficulties that may be encountered in the execution of the Work pursuant to this Agreement as a result of failure to make the necessary examinations and investigations shall be accepted as an excuse for any failure or omission on the part of the awarded proposer, nor shall they be accepted as a basis for any claims whatsoever for extra compensation or for an extension of time. 9. Payment Method Payments are made in accordance with the Local Government Prompt Payment Act, Chapter 218, Florida Statutes. Vendor’s invoices must include:  Purchase Order Number  Description and quantities of the goods or services provided per instructions on the County’s purchase order or contract. Invoices shall be sent to: Board of County Commissioners Clerk’s Finance Department ATTN: Accounts Payable 3299 Tamiami Trail E Ste 700 Naples FL 34112 Collier County, in its sole discretion, will determine the method of payment for goods and/or services as part of this agreement. Payment methods include:  Traditional – payment by check, wire transfer or other cash equivalent.  Standard – payment by purchasing card. Collier County’s Purchasing Card Program is supported by standard bank credit suppliers (i.e. VISA and MasterCard), and as such, is cognizant of the Rules for VISA Merchants and MasterCard Merchant Rules. Collier County cautions vendors to consider both methods of payment when determining pricing as no additional surcharges or fees will be considered (per Rules for VISA Merchants and MasterCard Merchant Rules). The County will entertain bids clearly stating pricing for standard payment methods. An additional separate discounted price for traditional payments may be provided at the initial bid submittal if it is clearly marked as an “Additional Cash Discount.” Upon execution of the Contract and completion of each month’s work, payment requests shall be submitted to the Project Manager on a monthly basis by the Vendor for services rendered for that prior month. Services beyond sixty (60) days from current monthly invoice will not be considered for payment without prior approval from the Project manager. All invoices must be submitted within the fiscal year the work was performed. (County's fiscal year is October 1 - September 30.) Invoices submitted after the close of the fiscal year will not be accepted (or processed for payment) unless specifically authorized by the Project Manager. Payments will be made for articles and/or services furnished, delivered, and accepted, upon receipt and approval of invoices submitted on the date of services or within six (6) months after completion of


contract. Any untimely submission of invoices beyond the specified deadline period is subject to nonpayment under the legal doctrine of “laches” as untimely submitted. Time shall be deemed of the essence with respect to the timely submission of invoices under this agreement. In instances where the successful contractor may owe debts (including, but not limited to taxes or other fees) to Collier County and the contractor has not satisfied nor made arrangement to satisfy these debts, the County reserves the right to off-set the amount owed to the County by applying the amount owed to the vendor or contractor for services performed of for materials delivered in association with a contract. Invoices shall not reflect sales tax. After review and approval, the invoice will be transmitted to the Finance Division for payment. Payment will be made upon receipt of proper invoice and in compliance with Chapter 218 Florida Statutes, otherwise known as the “Local Government Prompt Payment Act.” Collier County reserves the right to withhold and/or reduce an appropriate amount of any payment for work not performed or for unsatisfactory performance of Contractual requirements. 10. Environmental Health and Safety All Vendors and Sub vendors performing service for Collier County are required and shall comply with all Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), State and County Safety and Occupational Health Standards and any other applicable rules and regulations. Vendors and Sub vendors shall be responsible for the safety of their employees and any unsafe acts or conditions that may cause injury or damage to any persons or property within and around the work site. All firewall penetrations must be protected in order to meet Fire Codes. Collier County Government has authorized OSHA representatives to enter any Collier County facility, property and/or right-of-way for the purpose of inspection of any Vendor’s work operations. This provision is non-negotiable by any department and/or Vendor. All new electrical installations shall incorporate NFPA 70E Short Circuit Protective Device Coordination and Arc Flash Studies where relevant as determined by the engineer. All electrical installations shall be labeled with appropriate NFPA 70E arch flash boundary and PPE Protective labels. 11. Licenses The Vendor is required to possess the correct Business Tax Receipt, professional license, and any other authorizations necessary to carry out and perform the work required by the project pursuant to all applicable Federal, State and Local Law, Statute, Ordinances, and rules and regulations of any kind. Additionally, copies of the required licenses must be submitted with the proposal response indicating that the entity proposing, as well as the team assigned to the County account, is properly licensed to perform the activities or work included in the contract documents. Failure on the part of any Vendor to submit the required documentation may be grounds to deem Vendor non-responsive. A Vendor, with an office within Collier County is also required to have an occupational license. All State Certified contractors who may need to pull Collier County permits or call in inspections must complete a Collier County Contractor License registration form and submit the required fee. After registering the license/registration will need to be renewed thereafter to remain “active” in Collier County If you have questions regarding professional licenses contact the Contractor Licensing, Growth Management Division at (239) 252-2431, 252-2432 or 252-2909. Questions regarding required occupational licenses, please contact the Tax Collector’s Office at (239) 252-2477.

Relation of County It is the intent of the parties hereto that the Vendor shall be legally considered an independent Vendor, and that neither the Vendor nor their employees shall, under any circumstances, be considered employees or agents of the County, and that the County shall be at no time legally responsible for any negligence on the part of said Vendor, their employees or agents, resulting in either bodily or personal injury or property damage to any individual, firm, or corporation. 14. Termination Should the Vendor be found to have failed to perform his services in a manner satisfactory to the County, the County may terminate this Agreement immediately for cause; further the County may terminate this Agreement for convenience with a thirty (30) day written notice. The County shall be sole judge of non-performance. 15. Lobbying All firms are hereby placed on NOTICE that the Board of County Commissioners does not wish to be lobbied, either individually or collectively about a project for which a firm has submitted a Proposal. Firms and their agents are not to contact members of the County Commission for such purposes as meeting or introduction, luncheons, dinners, etc. During the process, from Proposal closing to final Board approval, no firm or their agent shall contact any other employee of Collier County in reference to this Proposal, with the exception of the Purchasing Director or his designee(s). Failure to abide by this provision may serve as grounds for disqualification for award of this contract to the firm. 16. Certificate of Authority to Conduct Business in the State of Florida (Florida Statute 607.1501) In order to be considered for award, firms submitting a response to this solicitation shall be required to provide a certificate of authority from the Florida Department of State Divisions of Corporations in accordance with the requirements of Florida Statute 607.1501 (www.sunbiz.org/search.html). A copy of the document shall be submitted with the solicitation response and the document number shall be identified. Firms who do not provide the certificate of authority at the time of response shall be required to provide same within five (5) days upon notification of selection for award.

Single Proposal Each Vendor must submit, with their proposal, the required forms included in this RFP. Only one proposal from a legal entity as a primary will be considered. A legal entity that submits a proposal as a primary or as part of a partnership or joint venture submitting as primary may not then act as a subconsultant to any other firm submitting under the same RFP. If a legal entity is not submitting as a primary or as part of a partnership or joint venture as a primary, that legal entity may act as a subconsultant to any other firm or firms submitting under the same RFP. All submittals in violation of this requirement will be deemed non-responsive and rejected from further consideration.


In addition, consultants that have participated and/or will participate in the development of scope, background information or oversight functions on this project are precluded from submitting a Proposal as either a prime or sub- consultant. 18. Protest Procedures Any actual or prospective Vendor to a Request for Proposal, who is aggrieved with respect to the former, shall file a written protest with the Purchasing Director prior to the due date for acceptance of proposals. All such protests must be filed with the Purchasing Director no later than 11:00 a.m. Collier County time on the final published date for the acceptance of the Request for Proposals.

A copy of the "Protest Policy" is available at the office of the Purchasing Director. 19. Public Entity Crime A person or affiliate who has been placed on the convicted vendor list following a conviction for a public entity crime may not submit a bid, proposal, or reply on a contract to provide any goods or services to a public entity; may not submit a bid, proposal, or reply on a contract with a public entity for the construction or repair of a public building or public work; may not submit bids, proposals, or replies on leases of real property to a public entity; may not be awarded or perform work as a contractor, supplier, subcontractor, or consultant under a contract with any public entity; and may not transact business with any public entity in excess of the threshold amount provided in s. 287.017 for CATEGORY TWO for a period of 36 months following the date of being placed on the convicted vendor list. 20.

Conflict of Interest Vendor shall complete the Conflict of Interest Affidavit included as an attachment to this RFP document.

These disclosures are intended to identify and or preclude conflict of interest situations during contract selection and execution. 22. Prohibition of Gifts to County Employees No organization or individual shall offer or give, either directly or indirectly, any favor, gift, loan, fee, service or other item of value to any County employee, as set forth in Chapter 112, Part III, Florida Statutes, the current Collier County Ethics Ordinance and County Administrative Procedure 5311.

The Employment Eligibility Verification System (E-Verify) operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in partnership with the Social Security Administration (SSA), provides an Internet-based means of verifying employment eligibility of workers in the United States; it is not a substitute for any other employment eligibility verification requirements. The program will be used for Collier County formal Invitations to Bid (ITB) and Request for Proposals (RFP) including professional services and construction services. Exceptions to the program:  Commodity based procurement where no services are provided.  Where the requirement for the affidavit is waived by the Board of County Commissioners Vendors / Bidders are required to enroll in the E-Verify program, and provide acceptable evidence of their enrollment, at the time of the submission of the vendor’s/bidder’s proposal.

Vendors are also required to provide the Collier County Purchasing Department an executed affidavit certifying they shall comply with the E-Verify Program. The affidavit is attached to the solicitation documents. If the Bidder/Vendor does not comply with providing the acceptable E-Verify evidence and the executed affidavit the bidder’s / vendor’s proposal may be deemed non-responsive. Additionally, vendors shall require all subcontracted vendors to use the E-Verify system for all purchases not covered under the “Exceptions to the program” clause above.
