The Corps of Engineers has issued a request for information on fish screens that could be utilized to prevent endangered pallid sturgeon from being diverted to an irrigation canal by the Lower Yellowstone Diversion Dam on the Yellowstone River at Intake, Montana. Responses are due Dec. 31, 2009.
An interagency team of the Corps and the project operator, the Bureau of Reclamation, proposes using stainless steel screens with integrated passive or active cleaning systems, a patented technology from Intake Screens Inc. Since no screening criteria has been developed for pallid sturgeon, it has been recommended that the screens be developed to meet requirements of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service for salmon and other anadromous and native fish species on the west coast.
Firms are invited to provide information on products with similar characteristics that would assist in evaluation of the Intake Dam Modification Project.
A request for information notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W9128FSCREENS in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
Responses by mail or e-mail are due to the address below by 3 p.m. Central time, Dec. 31. For information, contact Wanda Carter-Davis, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Omaha District, 1616 Capital Ave., Omaha, NE 68102-4901; (1) 402-995-2059; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
