Bidding extended by U.S. for flood control work at Enid Dam

VICKSBURG, Miss., U.S. 7/10/12 (PennWell) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended the deadline for bids to construct flood control civil works at Enid Dam in Mississippi. Bids now are due July 17.

The Corps previously called for bids by July 10 for Enid Dam and June 28 for similar work at Sardis Dam in Mississippi. Although there is no hydropower at either dam, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission granted preliminary permits to Hydro Green Energy LLC in 2007 to study hydropower projects at the sites that would use a combination of conventional and hydrokinetic technologies.

The solicitations, which were set aside for small businesses, are part of a Corps flood control program for the Mississippi River and its tributaries.

The Corps’ Vicksburg District now seeks bids by July 17 for emergency spillway and interceptor toe ditch joint sealing at Enid Lake Dam on the Yazoo River in Yalobusha County, Miss. Work includes removal and replacement of expansion joint material in vertical concrete wall monoliths of the approach and descent aprons of the emergency spillway and the dam toe interceptor ditch and outfall drain. The work is valued at $100,000 to $500,000.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site,, by entering Solicitation No. W912EE12B0014 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
