Introduction

Jefferson County (hereafter referred to as the Agency) is requesting proposals from qualified consulting firms (Consultant) to develop engineered designs for reach-scale restoration of the mainstem Hoh River and floodplain using engineered log jams and other techniques to achieve multiple habitat and community objectives, and to create and support area jobs. The Middle Hoh River and floodplain hold great significance for the Hoh Tribe, and the Lindner Creek area is central to valley tourism and the cherished legacy of pioneer family history. The reach (Milepost 5.0 – 6.5; River Mile 21 – 23) is traversed by the Upper Hoh Road, which provides access to commercial, recreational, agricultural and residential areas as well as Olympic National Park and the Agency’s road maintenance facility. The Lindner project will identify, assess, and select options to reduce erosion risks to infrastructure that will also lead to habitat, water quality, and other benefits for wild fish, including spring Chinook and steelhead, by taking steps to reestablish habitat-forming processes altered by logging and roadbuilding, and by protecting and enhancing existing areas of high-quality habitat. It advances the Middle Hoh Resiliency Plan's highest priority action (https://www.co.jefferson.wa.us/1427/Hoh-River-Resiliency-Plan)


Proposals should demonstrate a balance of knowledge and experience in fisheries biology, civil engineering, fluvial geomorphology, hydraulic modeling, restoration project permitting, climate change and related impacts, and other technical fields. The design team should include licensed professional engineers and licensed professional engineering geologists with experience in salmon habitat restoration in the Hoh River and/or comparable watersheds in Washington State. The overall project will be collaborative in nature, foster local employment, and involve periodic online and in-person meetings with the Hoh Tribe, businesses, landowners, a new technical advisory committee, NGOs, user groups, and the public. The anticipated Period of Performance lasts approximately 52 months, with an end date no later than June 1, 2026. A link to the Consultant’s downloadable proposal (PDF) must be received by the Agency no later than 5:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on September 29, 2023, at the following email address: .
