U.S. seeks hydroacoustic telemetry installation at California fish facility

The Bureau of Reclamation seeks statements of qualification from small businesses to install hydroacoustic telemetry at the Tracy Fish Facility, part of the 11-hydroelectric-plant Central Valley Project in California. Responses are due Feb. 7.

The Tracy Fish Facility was developed by Reclamation to protect fish entering the Delta Mendota Canal via the Tracy Pumping Plant, a feature of the Central Valley Project.

In a set-aside for small business, Reclamation said it plans to seek commercial services for technical assistance to set up an acoustic telemetry system in the fish facility. The contractor would install previously purchased Hydroacoustic Technology Inc. receivers, hydrophone, and cable in three receiver stations linked to a series of concrete-lined channels and bay. The work would be completed by May 31.

A pre-solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. R13PS80137 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due Feb. 7. For information, contact Al Phillips, Contract Specialist, Bureau of Reclamation – DO – Acquisition Operations Group, P.O. Box 25007, MS 84-27810, Denver, CO 80225-0007; (1) 303-445-2449; E-mail: aphillips@usbr.gov.
