Kittitas Conservation Trust (KCT) seeks a qualified contractor to provide professional services to implement restoration design plans for the Kachess River Restoration Project. KCT is issuing this Request for Bids (RFB) as part of our larger effort to sustain bull trout populations in the upper Yakima Basin. The Kachess River Restoration Project (KRRP) aims to restore streamflow and enhance habitat conditions on 1 mile of the Kachess River to improve rearing and migratory conditions for ESA-listed bull trout and recharge the shallow water aquifer through floodplain reconnection. The upper Kachess River is located entirely on Forest Service land managed by the Cle Elum Ranger District near the Mineral Creek Trailhead in Kittitas County.

There will be a mandatory pre-bid meeting for prospective Bidders to meet with Kittitas Conservation Trust and Inter-Fluve (engineering firm that completed the designs and will be providing construction oversight) staff to tour the project site and answer questions. The meeting will take place at the Mineral Creek Trailhead at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, August 10th, 2022. Only written questions can only be submitted regarding this RFB. The Contractor can send questions to KCT via email at by 5:00 PM Tuesday, August 16th, 2022. No phone calls, please.
