On February 14th, 2019 a mudslide occurred in Sausalito, California. The slide originated above Sausalito Blvd. on National Park Service Property. The slide crossed the Sausalito Blvd., carrying with it a duplex at 406/408 Sausalito Boulevard. With its debris, the slide continued down the slope, destroying a house at 57 Crescent Avenue. There was also significant damage to a house at 64 Crescent Avenue and duplexes at 428/430, 412/414, and 402/404 Sausalito Boulevard, including loss of decks, entries, and carports, and resulting in the loss of seven cars. Public and private utility infrastructure, including storm drains and sewer lines were also damaged in the slide along with sections of Crescent Avenue and Sausalito Boulevard. The debris field is known to contain hazardous materials, which may include asbestos, lead, mercury, PCBs, petroleum, oil, mold, and other hazardous material.
The purpose of the City of Sausalito’s request for Professional Services is to put in place comprehensive technical and administrative assistance for the post-disaster recovery process. The City of Sausalito seeks a qualified firm or team (hereafter referred to as the “Consultant”) with the ability and experience to provide comprehensive technical and administrative assistance. The Consultant must demonstrate the capacity to work with local, county, and state representatives, professional service consultants, designers and engineers, and construction companies related to post-disaster recovery. The approximate limits of work are from Sausalito Blvd., downhill to below Crescent Ave. This area is considered to be the debris field.
The selected firm must be experienced and knowledgeable in Federal Emergency Management Agency (“FEMA”), California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (“Cal/OES”) as well as local, state, and federal environmental regulatory and permitting procedures. The selected firm will be responsible for staying current with all FEMA and other agencies guidelines and regulations. It will be responsible for advising the City from beginning to end in order to help it secure maximum financial reimbursement the City is eligible to receive.Mud Slide RFP Final 6-14-19
