The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has awarded a contract worth a maximum of $850,000 for a geotechnical engineering consultant to FERC’s Division of Dam Safety and Inspections.
Alfred J. Hendron of Savoy, Ill., received the contract to provide geotechnical engineering consultant services on a labor hour basis to support the Division of Dam Safety and Inspections.
FERC took bids in September for the work, which is to include in-depth review of all factors leading to a determination that a dam requires remedial measures due to geotechnical deficiencies. Hendron also is to review proposed remediation and construction alternatives to ensure projects use best engineering practices.
FERC took proposals in July from small businesses to serve as an earthquake engineering consultant to the dam safety division. Last year, it recruited a dam safety civil engineer and a dam safety structural engineer in its Atlanta and Washington offices.
