Flood Control District 10 inviting responses to RFP

Boise River Flood Control District #10 (FCD10) is developing a 2-dimensional (2-D), HEC-RAS hydraulic model capable of steady or unsteady flow analysis of the Boise River channel and floodplains. The model will generally cover the Boise River corridor from the confluence with the Snake River upstream to Diversion Dam, near Lucky Peak Reservoir. The hydraulic model will serve as the foundation for the Boise River Management Tool (BRMT), which is intended to be utilized in the planning-level assessment of flood risk, development impacts, and environmental impacts. The BRMT’s primary function will be to assist in the evaluation of existing conditions and potentially a range of alternatives available for upcoming projects.

Development of the BRMT requires capturing the current river topography through bathymetric LiDAR prior to developing a hydraulic model to predict water depths and velocities, both in the channel and on the floodplain under various flow conditions. This tool requires an accurate, detailed, and seamless survey of the ground surface, channel bathymetry, and structures as the basis for developing the tool.

FCD10 is inviting qualified companies to respond to this Request for Proposal for the specific task of LiDAR Data Acquisition and Post-Processing for an approximate 61 mile reach of the Boise River in the Treasure Valley, Idaho.

The RFP is available here.
