Project Description
The objective of the project is to clear trees and select vegetation from the Lower Crystal Springs Dam (LCSD) Timber Harvest Plan (THP) Unit as specified in THP #1-16-016 SMO and approved amendments.  As part of the THP requirements for tree removal, the project also includes culvert repairs / replacements and access road improvement.  The work is to be performed in San Mateo, California.

Bid discounts may be applied as per San Francisco Administrative Code Chapter 14B.  The LBE Subcontracting Participation Requirement is 15.00%.  Both San Francisco Small & Micro-LBEs and SFPUC-LBEs (Firms certified by SF Contract Monitoring Division) can be utilized to meet this requirement.  The requirement is below 20% due to the need for the tree removal to be performed by a Licensed Timber Operator and the limited availability of LBEs who maintain this license.  Please contact Linda Rainaldi at 415-554-3106 for further information.  Subcontracting opportunities may include, but not limited, to the following major types of work: off-haul and disposal of materials, grading and paving, culvert replacement, and landscape maintenance.
