BILLINGS, Mont., U.S. 3/7/12 (PennWell) — The Bureau of Reclamation seeks bids to repair concrete of the outlet works stilling basin at Sugar Loaf Dam on Turquoise Lake in Colorado. A site visit is planned March 14, with bids due April 5.
Sugar Loaf Dam was completed in 1968 on Lake Fork of the Arkansas River as part of the Fryingpan-Arkansas Project, which diverts surplus water from the Fryingpan River and other tributaries of Roaring Fork River on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains to the Arkansas River Basin on the eastern slope. Reclamation took bids in 2011 to refurbish circuit breakers at another component of Fryingpan-Arkansas, the 200-MW Mt. Elbert Pumped-Storage project, 20 miles away.
Reclamation now seeks rehabilitation of stoplogs with new seals, dewatering of the stilling basin, saw cutting around damaged concrete, removal of damaged concrete, and replacement of concrete. The work is valued at between $250,000 and $500,000.
