Reclamation awards contract for dam safety civil work

The Bureau of Reclamation has awarded a US$45.7 million contract to Suulutaaq Inc. for dam safety civil construction, including an overlay of Mormon Island Auxiliary Dam.

The Mormon Island Auxiliary Dam — part of the 198.72-MW Folsom Dam hydroelectric project on California’s American River — is one of 12 structures containing Folsom Lake.

Reclamation most recently solicited bids for the work in April, which is to include excavation of existing embankments; importing 450,000 cubic yards of processed filter and gravel drain material; placement of 1 million cubic yards of shell-fill material from an existing stockpile; and excavation at the dam toe to install drain systems of pipe and filter.
