    I.
    PURPOSE
    The Board of Commissioners of the County of Beaver, Pennsylvania, is seeking sealed
    qualification proposals from Remediation Specialists to guide the County of Beaver
    through the PA Voluntary Remediation Program and the implementation of U.S. EPA
    Brownfields Cleanup grant, and provide plans, specifications and contract documents for
    the cleanup and development at the Darlington Brickyard, located at 825 Cannelton
    Road, Darlington, PA 16115.
    After all timely submitted proposals are evaluated and reviewed, the Board of
    Commissioners of the County of Beaver will select, for contract negotiations, the firm
    whose qualification proposal they deem to be the most advantageous for the County of
    Beaver. The County of Beaver was recently awarded a $500,000 Brownfields Cleanup
    Grant and the successful firm will oversee all the activities of the cleanup at the
    Darlington Brickyard site.
    II. BACKGROUND
    The Darlington Brickyard site is located at 825 Cannelton Road, Darlington, PA 16115
    and is owned by the County of Beaver. The site consists of three (3) contiguous parcels
    and encompasses approximately 75 acres of vacant land (parcel numbers are: 58-120-
    0118.000, 58-120-0118.001 and 77-120-0103.001). The site is surrounded by
    undeveloped forestland on all sides and sits along North Fork Little Beaver Creek.
    The site was first utilized for industrial purposes in the 1700 and 1800’s and in 1821 a
    wool factory was erected. Following the closure of the wool factory, the site was used as
    a brick manufacturing facility under several owners. Brick manufacturing ceased around
    1980 and all site structures were demolished. The site has remained unoccupied since
    this time.
    The County of Beaver hopes to transform the 75-acres of blighted and polluted
    brownfield back to productive use be restoring it to its natural undeveloped state,
    creating new connections to existing trail systems, enhancing local recreational features
    and integrating park features that pay homage to the site’s unique Native American
    heritage.
    Based on environmental site assessments conducted in 2021 using U.S. EPA Areawide
    Brownfields Assessment resources, the County of Beaver has determined that there are
    known hazardous substances found at the site including asbestos-containing materials
    (ACM) and lead-based paint (LBP) in the nine (9) stockpiles of demolition debris
    identified throughout the site. Twenty-four (24) samples of ACM were collected from the
    demolition debris stockpile and debris consisting of roofing materials, white paper-like
    material and cement board were confirmed to be asbestos-containing. LBP was
    identified on several green, beige and gray-coated bricks. The hazardous substances
    are believed to have resulted as a result of brick manufacturing activities.
    3
    The County of Beaver proposes to remediate the Darlington Brickyard site via the
    removal of all contaminated materials with continuous air monitoring throughout the
    process as well as importation and placement of clean fill material. Project activities will
    include the development of a health and safety plan, project oversight during
    remediation, and revegetation of the site following removal. Contaminated media to be
    removed includes ACM, LBP-containing debris and other yet-to-be-identified
    substances. Friable and non-friable asbestos would be completely managed and
    removed in accordance with normal demolition practices under the Asbestos National
    Emission Standards for Hazardous Pollutants (NESHAP) (EPA 340-1-92-013) along with
    identified hazardous waste materials and other solid waste/debris. This would effectively
    address the elevated concentration of ACM and LBP containing materials found while
    assessing the debris stockpiles.
