UPDATE – U.S. seeks spill wall work at 1,779.8-MW Dalles

The Corps of Engineers seeks proposals to build a spill wall in a stilling basin at 1,779.8-MW The Dalles Dam, on the Columbia River in Washington. Bids are due June 9.

The Corps’ Portland District said work would involve construction of a spill wall to aid fish passage in the stilling basin below the dam between Bays 8 and 9. (HNN 3/17/08) The wall is to be built of pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete, ten feet wide, about 830 feet long, and 25 to 43 feet tall.

Work will involve fabrication, transportation, and setting of large pre-cast concrete cells, concrete demolition, anchor installation, and grouting, rock removal, underwater and above-water concrete placement, rock drilling, and installation, grouting, and tensioning of rock tendons.

The Corps estimates the job will cost between $25 million and $100 million. It tentatively plans to award the contract in July.

Spill to pass juvenile fish downstream will take place between two in-water work periods. The Corps expects that construction will extend through April 2010.
