U.S. seeks stone processing, testing for Isabella Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to perform stone processing and aggregate testing at the site of Isabella Dam on California’s Kern River. Bids are due March 7.

Built in 1953 as a flood control and water conservation structure, Isabella Dam is being studied for remedial actions to prevent possible failure during earthquakes. Isabella Dam is the site of the 11.95-MW Isabella project (No. 8377). The Corps took bids last year for geophysical surveying and for development of a hydraulic model of Isabella Dam.

The Corps’ Sacramento District now seeks a contractor to sort weathered and unweathered stone for plant feed stockpiles, process stone into aggregate for use in testing and evaluations for filter and concrete aggregate, provide stone for stone degradation testing, and perform testing of stone, concrete aggregate and filter aggregate. The contractor is to provide an on-site field laboratory.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W9123814Q0009 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Bids are due by noon, Pacific time, March 7. For information, contact Robert Garcia, Contract Specialist, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District, 1325 J St., Sacramento, CA 95814; (1) 916-557-7229; E-mail: robert.s.garcia2@usace.army.mil.
