Concrete bulkhead installation sought by U.S. for 980-MW McNary

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids from small businesses to install permanent concrete bulkheads in a juvenile fish collection channel at 980-MW McNary Dam on the Columbia River. Bids are due Aug. 30.

The Corps’ Walla Walla District took bids in July for welding repairs on emergency intake gate bulkheads at McNary.

In a solicitation set-aside for small businesses, the Corps now seeks replacement of three steel regulating weirs at McNary with six pre-cast concrete bulkheads. Bulkhead dimensions are 20 feet wide, 10 feet tall, and 1.5 feet thick. The work area is to be dewatered using a contractor-fabricated temporary steel bulkhead. The existing steel weirs are to be removed and replaced by the concrete bulkheads, which are to be permanently grouted into place.

The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site,, by entering Solicitation No. W912EF12B0015 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids are due Aug. 30. For information, contact Jani Long, Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, 201 N. Third Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362-1876; (1) 509-527-7209; E-mail:
