The Corps’ Little Rock District solicited information in April on firms capable of performing scour damage repair at the three projects. The Little Rock District held an industry day in June to meet with contractors about work on its facilities and hydropower projects. The Little Rock District’s mission includes 12 multi-purpose lakes, 13 locks and dams, 308 miles of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System and seven hydroelectric projects.

The Corps now seeks bids for repair of scouring holes utilizing preplaced aggregate methodology at 115-MW Ozark Lock & Dam; James W. Trimble Lock & Dam (Arkansas River Lock & Dam 13), the location of Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp.’s 32.4-MW Clyde T. Ellis hydro plant (No. 3043); and 142-MW Dardanelle Lock & Dam.

Work is to include repair of eroded concrete in the wet on end sills on the lock wall side, stilling basins near the lock wall, and lock walls on the river side. The work is valued at $1 million to $5 million.
