UPDATE – U.S. seeks bids to modify 4.95-MW Deer Creek Dam

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids for another phase of dam modification work at 4.95-MW Deer Creek Dam, part of the Provo River project in Utah. Bids are due Aug. 14.

BuRec launched the multi-phase Safety of Dams Modification project in 2003 to modify the 235-foot-tall, 1,300-foot-long zoned earthfill dam and spillway structure to enable it to withstand a large seismic event. (HNN 6/27/07)

The new work will involve modifications to the upper part of the dam, including: excavating and stockpiling dam embankment materials; protecting existing instrumentation; and placing compacted zoned earthfill. The spillway gate structure and spillway radial gates also are to be modified. BuRec estimates the contracted work to be worth $5 million to $10 million.

The agency previously awarded a $1.2 million contract to Moltz Constructors Inc. of Cody, Wyo., to improve the spillway in the second phase of the project. BuRec said it anticipates finishing all dam safety work at the project by 2010.

BuRec issued solicitation No. 07SI408203, outlining the scope of Phase III work, on July 6. A copy may be obtained from the Internet at www.fedbizopps.gov. Prospective vendors must register in the Central Contractor Registration database at www.ccr.gov.

Responses are due Aug. 14 to Bureau of Reclamation, 125 S. State St., Room 6107, Salt Lake City, UT 84138. For information, contact Pat Postell, (1) 801-524-3651; E-mail: ppostell@uc.usbr.gov.
