Utah Lake Restoration Project – Professional Services for
National Environmental Policy Act Third-party Contractor Support
Due: April 28, 2022, 5:00 PM MT
Lake Restoration Solutions invites proposals from qualified firms interested in providing National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) third-party contractor support for the Utah Lake Restoration Project for the comprehensive restoration and enhancement of Utah Lake and development of improvements.
The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) will be the lead agency for the NEPA review; however, additional agencies may be designated as co-lead agencies. The USACE has determined that an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) must be prepared. The USACE will use a third-party contract for preparation of the EIS. The term “third party contract” refers to contractors paid by the applicant but selected and directed by the lead agencies. The information obtained by the third-party contract must be consistent with the USACE statutory requirements to take a hard, objective look at public interest and environmental factors. As such, the third-party contractor must provide unbiased and acceptable information which can be used as the basis for making a permit decision.
