For this Request for Bids, we are requesting bids for treating arundo and tamarisk between King City and Soledad along 22 river miles. This includes mowing and then spraying approximately 130 acres of arundo, and initial herbicide treatments and subsequent retreatments on up to 300 acres of unmowed arundo stands.

We are seeking itemized bids detailing rates and procedures for the following activities:

  • Mowing large untreated stands of arundo
  • Initial treatment of unmowed arundo stands and 1st year arundo regrowth at high percent cover (typically with power sprayers)
  • Retreatment of previously-sprayed arundo at low percent cover (backpack sprayers)

Applicants may provide rates and procedures for any number of these activities. Contracts may be awarded to multiple entities. 

Contracts will be awarded for time and materials based on the rates provided with a Not-to-Exceed amount listed. Contracts may be awarded for one to five years and may be extended at the mutual agreement of the contractor and RCDMC.

Proposals are due by 5:00pm, Tuesday, July 2, 2019. Questions can be directed to Emily Zefferman
