The Bureau of Reclamation plans to seek bids April 3 to modify the spillway for Scofield Dam in Carbon County, Utah.
The work, which is estimated to cost more than $10 million, involves demolishing the concrete spillway and part of a stilling basin, and replacing the structures with reinforced cast-in-place concrete. Demolition and replacement of a highway bridge over the spillway, and demolition and replacement of a gatehouse upstream of the dam crest also are planned. Work must be completed by December 2007.
The project also includes excavation and operation of a dewatering system. The major components of the system, including a sedimentation basin to control water quality, will be installed by others prior to start of the contract.
Solicitation No. 06-SI-408135 is to be issued April 3 and on the Internet at www.fedbizopps.gov. For information, contact: Mic Nelson, Bureau of Reclamation, 125 S. State St., Room 6107, Salt Lake City, UT 84138; (1) 801-524-3681.
