U.S. seeks fish ladder work at 1,076.6-MW Bonneville

PORTLAND, Ore., U.S. 5/10/12 (PennWell) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids for fish ladder improvements to address lamprey passage at 1,076.6-MW Bonneville Lock and Dam, on the Columbia River in Oregon and Washington. Bids are due May 24.

The Corps also called for bids in May for fish counting services at Bonneville and seven other federal hydroelectric projects on the Columbia and Snake rivers. The agency recently awarded a contract to J.E. McAmis, Inc. for emergency removal of rock debris at Bonneville.

The Corps’ Portland District said work involves improvements to the downstream entrance of the Washington shore fish ladder to address lamprey passage delays. Improvements consist mainly of a gravity water supply system that feeds water to a lamprey flume system.

The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.
