The Lake Cumberland Area Development District (LCADD) is requesting qualifications from professional environmental consulting/engineering firms to assist in the implementation of a FY18 United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) Community-Wide Brownfields Assessment Grant for Petroleum and Hazardous Substances. The project includes the identification and inventory of potential brownfield sites in the LCADD ten-county district, coordination with local, state and federal agencies in the identification of specific sites, conducting Phase I environmental site assessments (ESA), conducting Phase II ESAs, as appropriate, preparation of required written reports including, but not limited to, ABCA Remedial Planning, Quality Assurance Project Plans, Health and Safety Plans, Assessment, Cleanup and Redevelopment Exchange System (ACRES) reporting, quarterly reporting working with local committees via public meetings to discuss progress and outcomes of the project. The objectives of LCADD may expand at a later date to include actual cleanup of individual sites targeted for assessment, depending on availability of future funding.
