Corps schedules industry day on hydro, other work in Little Rock District

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Little Rock District has scheduled an industry day to meet with contractors about its construction, engineering, and operations and maintenance plans — including its water resources and hydropower facilities — for the coming year. Registration is due by Nov. 22 for the Dec. 3 meeting.

The Little Rock District’s mission includes both military and civil projects, featuring 12 multi-purpose lakes, 13 locks and dams, 308 miles of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, 178 parks, and seven hydroelectric projects. Among its hydro plants are 115-MW Ozark on the Arkansas River, 96-MW Greers Ferry on the Little Red River, and 200-MW Table Rock on the White River.

The industry day is planned for market research to help the district draft acquisition plans for fiscal year 2014. One session will be from 8:30 a.m.-noon on district operation and maintenance requirements. The other will be from 12:30 p.m.-4:15 p.m. on upcoming construction and architect-engineering projects supporting both military and civil missions. It is to be held at Arkansas State Library, Bessie B. Moore Conference Room, 900 W. Capitol Ave., No. 100, Little Rock, AR 72201.
