It will cost taxpayers $455,380 to clean up the former Manteca Police firing range located on municipal wastewater treatment plant property that’s being converted into a 210-acre family entertainment zone.
The range — last used in 2009 due to the opening of the Big League Dreams sports complex — is located near the northwest corner of that facility.
It consists of a fenced in area of 150 by 250 feet. What remains today are the range floor, the primary impact berm for bullets, side berms, an irrigation well, storage shed, and a shade structure.
Innovative Construction Solutions submitted the low bid of $455,380.The only other bid was $529,970 from Pacific States Environmental Contractors. Both firms are out of Dublin.
Among the costs covered in the bid include:
$204,050 for the transport and disposal of 1,100 tons of hazardous soil.
$19,030 to excavate the soil.
$11,840 for the destruction of the irrigation well.
$18,785 for tree removal.
$11,295 for site grading.
Manteca Police currently use the firing range the City of Ripon maintains for its police department next to that city’s wastewater treatment plant.
