PERFORMANCE-BASED WORK STATEMENT GRANULAR ACTIVATED CARBON (GAC) REPLACEMENT

1. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES.
The Offeror shall provide all management, tools, supplies, equipment, and certified labor necessary to
provide a complete GAC media replacement, reactivation service for carbon tanks A, B, C, and D located on
the IWTP site at Hill AFB, Utah. The service will be conducted in a manner that will ensure continuous and safe
operation by technicians certified to operate pneumatic-bulk slurry trailers. IWTP has six (6) GAC absorber tanks
labeled A, B, C, D, E, and F. The tanks are approximately 9.5 feet in diameter with a freeboard height of
approximately 8 feet, and contain approximately 16530 lbs. of GAC in each tank. GAC in these tanks is exposed to
wastewater containing a variety of organic chemicals and heavy metals from various industrial operations, and
may consist of RCRA hazardous waste as defined by the US EPA and the Utah Department of Environmental
Quality. Adsorbers are currently scheduled for GAC media replacement in pairs on an annual basis, (see
scheduling section 1.1) or when the carbon media’s capacity to adsorb the targeted organics has been reached.
Prior to each absorber-pair change out, IWTP will collect GAC samples from each of the scheduled adsorbers for
chemical analysis by the company’s reactivation facility to determine if the spent GAC is acceptable for
reactivation.

1.1. SCHEDULING.

FY 2022 Tanks A, C & E – Mar2022
FY 2023 Tanks B, D & F – Mar2023
FY 2024 Do analysis, change if needed
FY 2025 Tanks A, C & E – Mar 2025
FY 2026 Tanks B, D & F – Mar 2026
FY 2027 Do analysis, change if needed

1.2. BASIC SERVICES.

The Offeror shall remove the spent GAC media from the scheduled adsorbers tanks with pneumatic bulk slurry
service trailers with separate compartments (typically 3) for receiving spent GAC media and compartments
loaded with fresh GAC to re-load the emptied adsorbers. Spent GAC media shall be transferred directly from the
adsorber to the bulk slurry trailer via a transfer hose (provided by the Offeror) as a wet slurry, using pneumatic or
water pressure. Caking may have occurred and some effort may be required to loosen the existing carbon bed.
The Offeror shall open the emptied adsorber, so the government representative can verify the transfer of spent
media has been finished and conduct a visual interior inspection of the adsorber tank walls and under-drain
system. Inspection ports will require 2-inch sockets to remove the bolts and a high-reach lift or equivalent shall
be provided by the Offeror for access to the man ways if needed. The Offeror shall provide fresh GAC, which shall
be transferred directly from the fore and aft compartments of the bulk slurry trailer to the emptied adsorbers,
using the same system/method outlined above. When using this technique, the trailer arrives on-site filled with
granular carbon (app. 33,000 lbs.) split between the fore and aft compartments. Once the trailer is at the
unloading point, the balance of the trailer volume is filled with water and the trailer is pressurized using the
integrated pipework that is connected directly to the process vessel or blow tank. Removing the spent GAC media
and replacing it with new GAC complete the replacement service.

The Offeror shall properly dispose of the waste based on the TCLP analytical report of spent materials. All spent
carbon waste shall be removed from the site before the Offeror demobilizes. All wastewater produced during the
replacement process will be returned to the headwork's of the plant, no contaminated water shall be transported
from the plant. The Offeror shall provide all equipment necessary to complete the replacement service.

1.3. EMERGENCY REPLACEMENT SERVICES.

In the event the Government determines that an out-of-cycle service is required, the Offeror
shall remove the spent GAC from the affected tanks with a carbon-water slurry truck, and replace it with new
GAC within 20 days of initial contact. The Offeror shall follow the removal and replacement of GAC
IAW 1.2 of government provided PWS. The government will inspect tanks when emptied and again when
refilled. The Offeror shall be licensed and capable of handling all waste-code contingencies. The Offeror shall
be licensed to transport hazardous /non-hazardous spent GAC to a certified carbon recycling facility or dispose
of GAC deemed unsuitable for recycling in a certified hazardous waste facility. A copy of all licensing,
certificates, documents and manifests shall be provided to the government representative within 14 working
days and prior to invoice being authorized for payment.

1.4. SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS.

The Offeror shall provide a sufficient quantity of replacement GAC as outlined in Table 1 . The Offeror
shall submit a Certification of Analysis (COA) of the GAC properties upon delivery of each shipment prior
to transferring product into tanks. The government reserves the right to verify Offeror GAC media properties
with a third party analytical lab. Carbon media exchange procedure shall be accomplished using industry-
standard, compartmented-bulk slurry service trailers for wastewater treatment plants such that the
Government will receive GAC with the optimum sorption characteristics commensurate with this
specification. The replacement procedure should not in any way cause media attrition, deterioration of the
sorption characteristics, or reduce the volume or weight of GAC required for proper function of the GAC
tanks. Offeror shall be licensed and capable of handling all waste-code contingencies. Offeror must be
licensed to transport hazardous /non-hazardous spent GAC to a certified carbon recycling facility or dispose of
GAC deemed unsuitable for recycling in a certified hazardous waste facility. The government will be notified
in either event and all documents and manifests shall be provided to the government.

(Using the data above, it is estimated that each tank may contain, approximately 16,530 pounds of
GAC; ~33,060 pounds GAC for two tanks.

1.5. POINT OF CONTACT.

All work shall be scheduled through the following points of contact:

Primary: Mr. William Perez - Plant Manager, 801-777-3189
Alt: Mr. Chris Ferguson – Chemical Engineer, 801-430-3209, 801-777-7336

1.6. COMPLETION DATE.

The Offeror shall complete the GAC replacement service IAW Scheduling Section 1.1 of government provided
PWS. Procurement and the Offeror must coordinate with the point of contact to establish a suitable date
and period for arrival and replacement service. Random shutdown of plant operations to facilitate
replacement of GAC is not an option; a weekend day may be required to complete the replacement service.

1.7. APPLICABLE REGULATIONS.

The Offeror shall comply with the most current local, state, and federal regulations that govern this type of
operations and all activities associated as such. Regulations shall include, but not be limited to, the following:
