2.4 QUAL­I­TY ASSURANCE

a. CON­TRAC­TOR will con­duct con­fer­ence on the MIT­I­GA­TION AREA and project site with the QMS pri­or to ini­ti­at­ing oper­a­tions. QMS will review goals and objec­tives of the MIT­I­GA­TION PLAN with the CONTRACTOR.

b. QMS will con­duct min­i­mum bi-week­ly site vis­its dur­ing oper­a­tions to assist in assur­ing that the goals and objec­tives of the MIT­I­GA­TION PLAN are followed.

c. After task com­ple­tion, CON­TRAC­TOR will be respon­si­ble for iden­ti­fy­ing effec­tive pre­scribed burn areas, areas that may need addi­tion­al treat­ment, and rea­sons for inef­fec­tive pre­scribed burn­ing in con­sul­ta­tion with the QMS.

2.5 TASK IMPLE­MEN­TA­TION

A list of the acreages of areas to be burned by man­age­ment unit and year are shown in Table 1 in Appen­dix B. The man­age­ment units cor­re­spond­ing to the acreages in this table shown in Fig­ure 1 in Appen­dix A. Any provision(s) not out­lined in the MIT­I­GA­TION PLAN or this sec­tion (includ­ing addi­tion­al site prepa­ra­tion), must be iden­ti­fied by the CON­TRAC­TOR with con­cur­rence by the QMS pri­or to task initiation.

a. Pre­scribed burns will be con­duct­ed for mit­i­ga­tion and fuel reduc­tion purposes.

b. Burn units must be com­plet­ed on a basis of pri­or­i­ty rather than accord­ing to dif­fi­cul­ty of burn. Upon exe­cu­tion of the CON­TRACT, the CON­TRAC­TOR will be pro­vid­ed a set of Task Lists, which are antic­i­pat­ed to be sim­i­lar to, but not exact­ly mir­ror, the list of acreages pro­vid­ed in Table 1. Pre­scribed burn­ing will be com­plet­ed in the order as indi­cat­ed on the Task List(s) pro­vid­ed. Mul­ti­ple man­age­ment units are antic­i­pat­ed for burn­ing at one event to pro­vide larg­er acreages, greater effi­cien­cy, and low­er costs per burn. CON­TRAC­TOR, QMS, and/​or LANDOWN­ER (when appro­pri­ate) will agree to the burn pri­or­i­ty and sched­ule based on weath­er and fuel conditions.

c. The CON­TRAC­TOR must have a Flori­da Cer­ti­fied Pre­scribed Burn Man­ag­er to plan, coor­di­nate, and man­age the pre­scribed burn. The CONTRACTOR’s burn boss will write the burn plan and obtain burn autho­riza­tion from the Flori­da Divi­sion of Forestry pri­or to and on the day of the burn.

d. The pre­scribed burn plan shall be in accor­dance with Flori­da Statutes (FS) Chap­ter 590.125(3) Cer­ti­fied Pre­scribed Burn­er,” and Flori­da Admin­is­tra­tive Code (FAC) 5I.2.006(2) Open Burn­ing for Cer­ti­fied Burn Man­agers”. Draft burn plans shall be deliv­ered to and approved by the QMS and LANDOWN­ER with suf­fi­cient time to eval­u­ate pri­or to the burn, ten (10) busi­ness days at minimum.

e. The CONTRACTOR’s pre­scribed burn boss shall main­tain a Pre­scribed Burn­er Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion by the State of Flori­da Divi­sion of Forestry and main­tain com­pli­ance with all Cer­ti­fied Burn­er Stat­ues (FS 590.125, FAC 5I2, etc.). The CONTRACTOR’s pre­scribed burn boss shall have par­tic­i­pat­ed on at least ten (10) pre­scribed burns, in addi­tion to hav­ing Flori­da Pre­scribed Burn­er Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, and shall be present on site at all times dur­ing burn­ing operations.

f. The CON­TRAC­TOR shall pro­vide all fire fight­ing equip­ment and not be depen­dent on Flori­da Divi­sion of Forestry stand­by. The CON­TRAC­TOR shall have at min­i­mum one (1) Forestry grade tractor/​plow on site dur­ing all burn­ing operations.

g. In the event of an escaped fire, the LANDOWN­ER and QMS will be noti­fied imme­di­ate­ly along with Flori­da Divi­sion of Forestry as per require­ments. The CON­TRAC­TOR will be respon­si­ble for all sup­pres­sion and mit­i­ga­tion costs includ­ing costs to reha­bil­i­tate the escape area, if applicable.

h. The QMS and/​or LANDOWN­ER shall reserve the right to shut down the CONTRACTOR’s burn oper­a­tions at any time. Upon receiv­ing noti­fi­ca­tion, the CON­TRAC­TOR shall be required to stop all igni­tion activ­i­ties and begin mop-up and/​or con­trol activ­i­ties, as nec­es­sary and required.

i. The burn boss shall cer­ti­fy that the cur­rent and fore­cast­ed weath­er con­di­tions meet the approved para­me­ter ranges and that all oth­er nec­es­sary fac­tors are met pri­or to igni­tion. Spot weath­er fore­casts for the near­est loca­tions to the burn site shall be issued the day of the burn.

j. All required per­son­nel, equip­ment, fire­breaks, and per­mits as estab­lished by law shall be obtained and estab­lished pri­or to ignition.

k. The CON­TRAC­TOR shall pro­vide approved FDOT Smoke” warn­ing signs on the day of burn­ing oper­a­tions, as appro­pri­ate. The signs are to be placed on any high­ways or paved main roads in the vicin­i­ty of burn­ing oper­a­tions, par­tic­u­lar­ly those expect­ed to be affect­ed by smoke. Signs should be antic­i­pat­ed for Hwy 388 and/​or Coun­ty Road 2300, but oth­er loca­tions could be need­ed when appropriate.

l. The CON­TRAC­TOR is respon­si­ble for deter­min­ing all nec­es­sary train­ing, equip­ment, machin­ery, mate­ri­als, and PPE’s required for all crew lead­ers and per­son­nel to ensure safe and effec­tive pre­scribed burn­ing operations.

m. The CON­TRAC­TOR is respon­si­ble for obtain­ing all state and local burn per­mits and autho­riza­tions pri­or to con­duct­ing pre­scribed burn­ing operations.

n. The CON­TRAC­TOR is respon­si­ble for noti­fy­ing the LANDOWN­ER, all adja­cent landown­ers, and the Air­port oper­a­tions staff pri­or to each burn sea­son. The CON­TRAC­TOR is also respon­si­ble for noti­fy­ing the QMS, LANDOWN­ER, and Air­port Oper­a­tions Staff pri­or to and on the day of the burn.

o. The CON­TRAC­TOR shall coor­di­nate the instal­la­tion meth­ods and loca­tions of any fire­lines poten­tial­ly need­ed for con­trol with the QMS pri­or to burn oper­a­tions. CON­TRAC­TOR will be required to con­duct all fire line prepa­ra­tion and fire con­tain­ment mea­sures as indi­ca­tion by site con­di­tions. It is antic­i­pat­ed that exist­ing unpaved roads on site would be suf­fi­cient to pro­vide the major­i­ty, if not all of fire con­trol. Exist­ing roads and oth­er nat­ur­al fire­breaks will be uti­lized to the great­est extent pos­si­ble so that only the min­i­mum mechan­i­cal fire­lines deemed nec­es­sary for con­trol will be installed. Any fire­lines shall be installed using the least intru­sive method pos­si­ble for safe­ly imple­ment­ing a pre­scribed burn. All fire­lines will be reha­bil­i­tat­ed imme­di­ate­ly to the pri­or exist­ing grade fol­low­ing com­ple­tion of burn­ing oper­a­tions. Refresh­ing fire­breaks using disc­ing or oth­er sim­i­lar meth­ods is an option at a per acre rate.

3a.2 SUM­MA­RY OF WORK

This sec­tion spec­i­fies the treat­ment of inva­sive species at indi­vid­ual loca­tions (pri­mar­i­ly road­side loca­tions) through­out the MIT­I­GA­TION SITE. The loca­tions would be iden­ti­fied by the QMS. Loca­tions would be pro­vid­ed by maps, GPS, and/​or GIS shape­file as appro­pri­ate. Treat­ment would con­sist of com­mer­cial­ly avail­able glyphosate (e.g. Roundup) in the iden­ti­fied loca­tions. Treat­ment areas would be con­duct­ed at indi­vid­ual loca­tions on a per square foot basis. Treat­ment size would vary from <500 square feet, 5005,000 square feet, 5,00012,000 square feet, and over 12,000 square feet.

3a.3 SUB­MIT­TALS

a. Pri­or to task ini­ti­a­tion, the CON­TRAC­TOR will be respon­si­ble for coor­di­nat­ing the spe­cif­ic her­bi­cide that will be used. Fol­low­ing approval by the QMS, the CON­TRAC­TOR may pro­ceed with the task. 

b. The CON­TRAC­TOR will col­lect pho­tographs of each inva­sive species loca­tion that demon­strates whether the erad­i­ca­tion treat­ment method is effec­tive. Pho­tos should be labeled to cor­re­spond with each inva­sive species loca­tion and sub­mit­ted to the QMS fol­low­ing com­ple­tion of the task.

3a.4 QUAL­I­TY ASSURANCE

Appli­ca­tion of all her­bi­cides must com­ply with the her­bi­cide MSDS and labels, which shall be present on the MIT­I­GA­TION SITE dur­ing appli­ca­tion. All applic­a­ble local, state, and fed­er­al guide­lines and reg­u­la­tions must also be followed.

3a.5 TASK IMPLE­MEN­TA­TION

The treat­ment of inva­sive species would be con­duct­ed at indi­vid­ual loca­tions (pri­mar­i­ly road­side loca­tions) through­out the MIT­I­GA­TION SITE (Fig­ure 1). Spe­cif­ic loca­tions would be iden­ti­fied by the QMS and would be pro­vid­ed to the CON­TRAC­TOR through maps, GPS points, and/​or GIS shape­files as appro­pri­ate. Treat­ment would con­sist of com­mer­cial­ly avail­able glyphosate (e.g. Roundup) in the iden­ti­fied loca­tions. Any provision(s) not out­lined in the MIT­I­GA­TION PLAN or this sec­tion, must be iden­ti­fied by the CON­TRAC­TOR with con­cur­rence by the QMS pri­or to task ini­ti­a­tion. Areas would be treat­ed on a per square foot basis. Treat­ment size would vary from <500 square feet, 5005,000 square feet, 5,00012,000 square feet, and over 12,000 square feet.

3c.3 SUB­MIT­TALS

Pri­or to ini­ti­a­tion of the PRE­SCRIBED BURN­ING effort, the CON­TRAC­TOR shall sub­mit a plan to the QMS (by e‑mail or oth­er appro­pri­ate meth­ods), which details, at min­i­mum, out­lin­ing the poten­tial fire­break areas that need to be refreshed at least ten (10) busi­ness days pri­or to the pre­scribed burn. Fol­low­ing approval of the plant­i­ng plan by the QMS, the CON­TRAC­TOR may com­mence work on the task.

3c.4 QUAL­I­TY ASSURANCE

a. The CON­TRAC­TOR will con­duct a con­fer­ence on the project site with the QMS fol­low­ing iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of fire­break bound­aries and lim­its, but pri­or to ini­ti­at­ing oper­a­tions. QMS will review goals and objec­tives of the MIT­I­GA­TION PLAN with the CONTRACTOR.

b. QMS will con­duct min­i­mum bi-week­ly site vis­its dur­ing oper­a­tions to assist in assur­ing that the goals and objec­tives of the MIT­I­GA­TION PLAN, tech­ni­cal draw­ings (if applic­a­ble), and spec­i­fi­ca­tions are followed.

3c.5 TASK IMPLE­MEN­TA­TION

The refresh­ing of exist­ing fire­breaks would be under­tak­en at var­i­ous loca­tions on the MIT­I­GA­TION SITE. The poten­tial loca­tions would be iden­ti­fied by the CON­TRAC­TOR but would be spec­i­fied and autho­rized by the QMS and OWN­ER. If nec­es­sary, loca­tions would be pro­vid­ed by maps, GPS, and/​or GIS shape­file as appro­pri­ate. Exist­ing fire­breaks would be eval­u­at­ed by the CON­TRAC­TOR pri­or to imple­men­ta­tion of PRE­SCRIBED BURNI NG tasks. Refresh­ing fire­breaks work would be con­duct­ed on a per acre basis. Treat­ment size would vary from less than 1 acres, 1 – 5 acres, 6 – 10 acres, and over 10 acres. 

a. A large por­tion of the MIT­I­GA­TION SITE has under­gone pre­scribed burn­ing. Exist­ing or pre­vi­ous­ly uti­lized fire­breaks should be present through­out the site.

b. The WORK described in this sec­tion would be accom­plished by disc­ing, plow­ing, blad­ing, or sim­i­lar methods. 

c. The width of the fire­break should be of suf­fi­cient length and width to stop a creep­ing fire but should approx­i­mate the width of the equip­ment used. The width should not exceed twelve feet, unless addi­tion­al width is deter­mined nec­es­sary by the BURN BOSS in con­junc­tion with the QMS.

d. Depend­ing on the ter­rain and char­ac­ter of veg­e­ta­tion along the fire­break, min­er­al soils would gen­er­al­ly be exposed through the refreshed break. The refreshed fire­break would be placed on the con­tour to the extent pos­si­ble to con­trol erosion.

e. The length and width of the fire­breaks to be refreshed is lim­it­ed to the areas spec­i­fied by the QMS.

3d.2 SUM­MA­RY OF WORK

This sec­tion spec­i­fies the mechan­i­cal treat­ment (such as roller­chop­ping, Gyro-trac®, or sim­i­lar treat­ment meth­ods) at loca­tions on the MIT­I­GA­TION SITE. The MECHAN­I­CAL TREAT­MENT would be uti­lized to reduce large, exten­sive, dense stands of tall, small diam­e­ter woody shrubs (includ­ing but not lim­it­ed to titi, gall­ber­ry, wax myr­tle, fet­ter­bush, etc.) that are not or can­not be effec­tive­ly treat­ed using pre­scribed fire alone. Iden­ti­fied areas would be treat­ed with a sin­gle pass to reduce stand­ing under­sto­ry and shrub­by veg­e­ta­tion by 95%. Treat­ment would be under­tak­en pri­or to pre­scribed burn­ing activ­i­ties. The poten­tial loca­tions would be iden­ti­fied by the CON­TRAC­TOR but would be spec­i­fied and autho­rized by the QMS and OWN­ER. If nec­es­sary, loca­tions would be pro­vid­ed by maps, GPS, and/​or GIS shape­file as appro­pri­ate. Exist­ing fire­breaks would be eval­u­at­ed by the CON­TRAC­TOR pri­or to imple­men­ta­tion of MECHAN­I­CAL TREAT­MENT tasks. Mechan­i­cal treat­ment work would be con­duct­ed on a per acre basis.

d. After task com­ple­tion, the CON­TRAC­TOR will be respon­si­ble for iden­ti­fy­ing effec­tive treat­ment areas, areas that may need addi­tion­al treat­ment WORK, and rea­sons for inef­fec­tive treat­ment in con­sul­ta­tion with the QMS

3d.5 TASK IMPLE­MEN­TA­TION

The mechan­i­cal treat­ment WORK would be under­tak­en at var­i­ous loca­tions on the MIT­I­GA­TION SITE. Iden­ti­fied areas would be mechan­i­cal­ly treat­ed to reduce large, exten­sive, dense stands of tall, small diam­e­ter woody shrubs (includ­ing but not lim­it­ed to titi, gall­ber­ry, wax myr­tle, fet­ter­bush, etc.) that are not or can­not be effec­tive­ly treat­ed using pre­scribed fire alone. Iden­ti­fied areas would be treat­ed with a sin­gle pass to reduce stand­ing under­sto­ry and shrub­by veg­e­ta­tion by 95%. The poten­tial loca­tions would be iden­ti­fied by the CON­TRAC­TOR but would be spec­i­fied and autho­rized by the QMS and OWN­ER. If nec­es­sary, loca­tions would be pro­vid­ed by maps, GPS, and/​or GIS shape­file as appro­pri­ate. Exist­ing fire­breaks would be eval­u­at­ed by the CON­TRAC­TOR pri­or to imple­men­ta­tion of MECHAN­I­CAL TREAT­MENT tasks. Mechan­i­cal treat­ment work would be con­duct­ed on a per acre basis. Treat­ment size would vary from less than 100 acres, 100400, 400600, and over 600 acres. 

a. The mechan­i­cal treat­ment in spec­i­fied areas on MIT­I­GA­TION SITE would be com­plet­ed pri­or to pre­scribed burn­ing in those areas.

b. A lay­ered fuel load of rough veg­e­ta­tion should be left to assist in sup­port of pre­scribed fire, as opposed to a low­er ground-lev­el treat­ment used for aes­thet­ic pur­pos­es. Treat­ment should be applied to pro­vide suf­fi­cient cur­ing time before pre­scribed burning. 

c. All mechan­i­cal treat­ment is gen­er­al­ly lim­it­ed to plant­ed pine and clearcuts and excludes forest­ed wet­lands, shrub bogs, marsh­es, streams, and oth­er wet­land areas, unless oth­er­wise spec­i­fied. The CON­TRAC­TOR will coor­di­nate with the QMS pri­or task ini­ti­a­tion to ensure that spe­cif­ic sen­si­tive areas are marked and avoided.

d. All treat­ments will fol­low all stan­dard Best Man­age­ment Prac­tices for mechan­i­cal treat­ment, unless oth­er­wise specified.

e. Mechan­i­cal treat­ment activ­i­ties should be sched­uled pri­mar­i­ly when soil mois­ture is at its low­est to min­i­mize soil disturbance. 

f. Mechan­i­cal equip­ment would not be used in areas where soil or sed­i­ment rut­ting or com­paction would obvi­ous­ly occur (such as wetlands).

g. If rut­ting or com­paction is observed dur­ing mechan­i­cal treat­ment activ­i­ties, the oper­a­tion should be ter­mi­nat­ed and relo­cat­ed to dri­er areas or dis­con­tin­ued until dri­er con­di­tions pre­vail. Adja­cent or sim­i­lar sites dis­play­ing sim­i­lar con­di­tions (such as wet­ness, ele­va­tion, soils, and/​or veg­e­ta­tion) should not be test­ed fur­ther once rut­ting has been observed. Indi­vid­ual rut­ting areas should be lim­it­ed to the area need­ed to turn around or back out the equip­ment to exit the area.

h. Any rut­ted areas that result from mechan­i­cal treat­ment must be repaired fol­low­ing the dis­tur­bance and returned to the orig­i­nal con­tour. Addi­tion­al fill mate­r­i­al must not be used.

i. Mechan­i­cal treat­ment equip­ment should not be used on the steep banks of creeks, ditch­es, or wet­land drainages for safe­ty pur­pos­es, but also to avoid hav­ing equip­ment get stuck or fall into these areas. Veg­e­ta­tion in these areas should be left in place.

j. Mechan­i­cal equip­ment should not typ­i­cal­ly cross streams, ditch­es, or flow­ing wet­land drainage, but should only occur if absolute­ly nec­es­sary. Repeat­ed cross­ings or mul­ti­ple adja­cent cross­ings should not occur. If nec­es­sary, sin­gle cross­ing sites should be select­ed care­ful­ly and spaced at an inter­val that will min­i­mize bank, chan­nel, and stream disturbance.

k. All mechan­i­cal treat­ments should be con­duct­ed in a man­ner to avoid and min­i­mize scar­ring or oth­er dam­age to desir­able tar­get tree species in the work area.

l. Dur­ing mechan­i­cal treat­ment activ­i­ties, the fol­low­ing tree and shrub species should be cleared when possible:

1. Black titi (Clifto­nia mono­phyl­la)

2. Swamp titi (Cyril­la racemi­flo­ra)

3. Large gall­ber­ry (Ilex cori­acea)

4. Gall­ber­ry (Ilex glabra)

5. Yaupon hol­ly (Ilex vom­i­to­ria)

6. Fet­ter­bush (Lyonia luci­da)

7. Wax myr­tle (Myri­ca cer­ifera)

8. Rusty stag­ger­bush (Lyonia fer­rug­inea)

m. Dur­ing mechan­i­cal treat­ment activ­i­ties, the fol­low­ing tree and shrub species should be avoid­ed when possible:

1. Lon­gleaf pine (Pinus palus­tris)
