U.S. seeks stoplogs for spillway repair work at Harlan County Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to fabricate and install stoplogs for spillway repair work to rehabilitate spillway gates at Harlan County Dam in Nebraska. Bids are due June 27.

The Corps’ Kansas City District also scheduled a site visit for the work and a second industry day June 11, with registration by June 7.

The Corps plans rehabilitation of two to three spillway tainter gates at Harlan County Dam, a rolled-earth embankment and concrete gravity dam built for flood control and irrigation on the Republican River in the 1950s. The dam, which impounds the second largest lake in Nebraska, includes a controlled spillway regulated by 18 tainter gates, nine sluice gates, and two irrigation outlets.

The Corps previously sought information on firms able to perform two separate tasks, one to provide a spillway dewatering structure for the spillway tainter gate work, including 16 new stoplogs, and the other to strengthen structural steel components of the 40- by 30-foot gates and to replace existing trunnions, bearings, and gate chains.

The agency now seeks bids by June 27 to construct the dewatering structure. The work, to require 270 days at an estimated cost of $1 million to $5 million, includes 16 new stoplogs, four new pier gates, two support beams, a lifting beam, and a rigid template.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912DQ13R1005 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box. A site visit for the stoplog project is scheduled for 9 a.m., Central time, June 11.

Bids are due June 27. For information, contact Hilary O. Meckel or Robert F. Johnson, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District, Attn: CENWK-CT, 700 Federal Building, 601 E. 12th St., Kansas City, MO 64106-2896; (1) 816-389-3500; E-mail: hilary.o.meckel@usace.army.mil, robert.f.johnson@usace.army.mil.

Second industry day set on spillway gate rehab work

The Corps also scheduled a second industry day June 11 for the spillway gate rehabilitation part of the project at Harlan County Dam.

The agency previously held an industry day Feb. 1 in Kansas City to improve industry’s understanding of the Corps’ requirements and answer questions about the tainter gate repair project.

The Corps now plans a second industry day on the tainter gate work at 10:30 a.m., Central time, June 11 at the dam in Republican City, Neb. The Corps said the gathering would help potential bidders to judge whether they can meet government requirements.

Participants must register for the industry day by June 7 by e-mail to the addresses below.
