KYDEP Seeks Design Contractor for Maxey Flats Project

The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection initiated a Request for Proposal with the Kentucky Finance and Administration Cabinet to contract with an engineering firm to design the final cap for the Maxey Flats Project. The project is located in northeastern Kentucky in Fleming County, approximately 10 miles northwest of the city of Morehead.

The Maxey Flats Project is a low-level radioactive waste landfill that is currently under an interim cap of approximately 55 acres. The Commonwealth of Kentucky owns the facility and long-term responsibility. Working with the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department for Environmental Protection must be approved to enter the Final Closure Period for the project before work can begin.

The department, in cooperation with the Kentucky Division of Waste Management, will utilize the Commonwealth’s procurement process to select the winning firm, tentatively by January 2013.

Firms interested in considering the opportunity are encouraged to review the solicitation and associated documents online. Go to the Finance and Administration Cabinet’s State Planroom Web page and click Vendor Self Service and Active Solicitations to get started.
