The Natural Resources Conservation Service seeks bids for civil construction to rehabilitate and correct seepage at the high-hazard New Creek Site 14 Dam on Linton Creek in Grant County, W.Va. Bids are due Aug. 19.
NRCS, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, received economic stimulus fund money under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to rehabilitate aging flood control structures including New Creek Site 14, which was built in 1963.
The dam, which provides flood damage reduction, sediment and erosion reduction, recreation, and water supply, has evidence of seepage through the structure. Rehabilitation is to bring the dam into compliance with current dam safety requirements and address the seepage issue.
Work, valued at $5 million to $10 million, includes replacing a reinforced concrete riser intake, modifying the open channel auxiliary spillway to include a roller-compacted-concrete stepped spillway, realigning the auxiliary spillway outlet channel, flattening the downstream slope of the embankment, installing a filter and drain system, and extending the principal spillway outlet works by 60 feet downstream.
A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. AG3D47S100008 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
Bids are due by 10 a.m. Aug. 19. For information, contact Linda Ruch, Natural Resources Conservation Service, 1550 E. Core Road, Suite 200, Morgantown, WV 26505; (1) 304-284-7554; E-mail: email@example.com.
