Dam modification sought by U.S. for 38-MW Glendo

The Bureau of Reclamation’s Great Plains Regional Office plans to take bids for modifications to 38-MW Glendo Dam in Wyoming.

Reclamation said it expects to issue a solicitation about June 1, with bids to be due at least 30 days later.

The 52-year-old zoned earthfill dam on the North Platte River is part of the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Project. In addition to hydropower, Glendo Dam provides irrigation water, flood control, fish and wildlife enhancement, recreation, sediment retention, and enhanced municipal water supply.

Work is to include a temporary bypass roadway on the dam, cast-in-place concrete for various features, shotcrete, roller-compacted concrete, excavation of existing dam and dike embankments, excavation for auxiliary spillway, construction of raised dam and dike embankments, excavation and construction of embankments for Glendo Park road relocation, road relocation construction, and road reconstruction on the top of the dam.

The work is expected to cost between $10 million and $25 million.

A pre-solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R10PS60186 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
