Environmental Characterization Field Technician – West Valley, NY Services required under this task order include: comprehensive environmental task-based characterization services, including but not limited to: work plan development and documentation, field data collection and sample analyses, civil survey support, non-intrusive geophysical data collection, buried infrastructure identification and mapping, data management, data validation, data reduction, interpretation, and presentation, statistics, geographic information system products, field summary reports, data summary reports (i.e., summary of data verification, validation, and assessment), and technical oversight of field investigation activities. Onsite activities will include subsurface field services (e.g., well drilling, soil borings, cone penetrometer testing, geotechnical data collection, clearing and grubbing of brush/tree removal and related services) as well as surface soil, subsurface soil, groundwater, surface water, and stream sediment characterization. Non-intrusive and field screening capabilities may be required (e.g., gamma walkover surveys, down-hole gamma surveys, non-intrusive geophysical surveys, etc.). Investigation-derived waste (IDW) management and disposition will also be included. As part of characterization activities, the contractor should be prepared to deploy and support in-field laboratory capabilities (radiological and chemical) as required and appropriate. The contractor should be familiar with the Triad approach to environmental characterization and capable of implementing Triad-based data collection efforts. The contractor should be familiar with Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual (MARSSIM) guidance and experienced with implementing final status surveys for demonstrating site closure. Consequently, the contractor should have the capacity to manage and disseminate data results electronically while in the field to support in-field decision-making, as appropriate. Environmental data collection activities will be undertaken to support specific WVDP Phase 1 decommissioning activities at the site. Examples of site-specific activities include (but are not limited to): (1) pre-design WVDP Phase 1 decommissioning data collection to determine the nature and extent of surface and subsurface soil, sediment, and groundwater contamination consistent with data needs of the Phase 1 Decommissioning Plan for the WVDP, Revision 2 (DP), Phase 1 Characterization Sampling and Analysis Plan for the WVDP, Revision 1 (CSAP), and the Phase 1 Final Status Survey Plan for the WVDP, Revision 1 (FSSP), (2) data collection to support final status survey requirements for areas undergoing remediation to meet site-specific derived concentration guideline levels (DCGL) as specified in the DP, CSAP, and FSSP and documented for earlier remediation in the Radiological Characterization Report for the Balance of Site Facilities for Task Order 5, Rev. 3 July 2014, (3) environmental data collection required to support the removal of contaminated media as required by specific decommissioning activities, and (4) routine site-wide environmental monitoring activities. The contract may have many tasks occurring simultaneously. Examples of data collection-type activities include (but are not limited to): (1) gamma walkover surveys to characterize surface soil contamination, (2) non-intrusive geophysical surveys to identify and map buried infrastructure, (3) civil surveys to determine surface topography and to determine the coordinates of specific features of interest, (4) intrusive data collection including soil cores, GeoProbe cores, test pits, etc. resulting in obtaining samples submitted for analysis, (5) installation of permanent and temporary groundwater data collection points, and (6) field screening of environmental samples for radiological, chemical, or physical parameters of interest. The contractor shall perform the characterization, certification, permitting, storage, treatment, rework necessary for transport or disposal, and shipping for disposal of radiological, hazardous, mixed radiological and hazardous waste, or other waste types that may require handling or management prior to disposal, that may be generated as Investigation Derived Wastes, by task order activities.
