U.S. to seek dam safety work at Pennsylvania’s East Branch Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on contractors capable of performing dam safety work at East Branch Dam on the Clarion River in Pennsylvania. Responses are due March 14.

East Branch Dam is a rolled earthfill embankment that has experienced seepage problems that required repairs in 1957. The Corps dam has since been determined to be potentially unsafe, prompting the Corps to take precautionary measures pending implementation of a dam safety modification program.

The Corps’ Pittsburgh District issued a sources sought notice seeking information on contractors capable to compete and perform a fixed-price incentive Early Contractor Involvement contract.

Work is to include exploratory and preparatory grouting and construction of a two-component 300-foot-deep cutoff wall within the existing embankment dam. The work is expected to cost between $100,000 and $250,000.

The sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. SSEASTBRANCH in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by mail or, preferably, e-mail to the address below by 1 p.m., Eastern time, March 14. For information, contact Michelle Anderson, Contract Specialist, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 1000 Liberty Ave., 22nd Floor, Pittsburgh, PA 15222; (1) 412-395-7417; Fax: (1) 412-644-5109; E-mail: michelle.l.anderson@usace.army.mil.
