Refurbishments continue at Wyoming’s 38-MW Glendo hydropower plant

Ceres Environmental Services Inc. has won a US$10.9 million contract from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation to refurbish dikes at the 38-MW Glendo hydropower plant in Wyoming.

Reclamation called for bids in July for work that includes excavation of dike embankments, furnishing and placing zoned earthfill materials to construct a raised dike embankment, removing and replacing roadway pavement, furnishing and installing instrumentation wells, furnishing and installing precast concrete vaults, and furnishing and laying toe drain pipes.

The agency awarded a contract to Johnson Wilson Constructors Inc. in 2010 to modify Glendo Dam. That work included cast-in-place concrete, shotcrete, roller-compacted concrete, excavation of the dam and dike embankments, excavation for an auxiliary spillway, and construction of raised dam and dike embankments. Reclamation took bids in July for removal of asbestos at Glendo and six other sites in Wyoming.
