The Corps of Engineers has extended the deadline for bids to build spillway deflectors at 810-MW Little Goose Dam, on the Snake River in Washington. The new bid date is Sept. 9.
The original deadline was Sept. 5. (HNN 8/12/08) The Corps’ Walla Walla District previously called for proposals by Sept. 4 to construct a passive integrated transponder tag detection system for juvenile fish, relocate a bypass flume, and modify dewatering structures, all at Little Goose. (HNN 8/7/08)
The current solicitation involves construction of one spillway deflector and one pier extension in Spillway Bay 1, and fabrication and installation of a new trash boom anchor in the forebay. If time permits, a second spillway deflector and pier extension would be built in Spillway Bay 8. Deflectors are to be built from reinforced concrete and must be anchored into the spillway. The Corps estimates the work to cost between $1 million and $5 million.
The solicitation may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering the number W912EF08B0008 in the Opportunities search box.
Proposals are due Sept. 9 to Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, Contracting Division, 201 N. Third Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362-1876. For information, contact Phyllis Buerstatte, (1) 509-527-7211; E-mail: email@example.com.
