U.S. seeks stream gauge equipment for five projects

The Corps of Engineers seeks information on potential suppliers of stream gauge equipment for five water and hydroelectric projects in Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas. Responses to two requests for information are due Oct. 22, 2009.

The Corps’ Tulsa District issued two sources sought notices to determine the interest, capabilities, and qualifications of the small business community to supply such equipment under a fixed-price contract.

The requests cover equipment to be supplied to: 70-MW Keystone Lake on the Arkansas River, 45-MW Fort Gibson Lake on the Neosho River, and 90-MW Eufaula Lake on the Canadian River, all in Oklahoma; 80-MW Denison Dam (Texoma Lake) on the Red River in Texas; and Toronto Lake on the Verdigris River in Kansas.

One solicitation, W912BV09T0112, includes pressure sensors and bubbler units to measure the state of water in streams, a gas purge system for non-submersible pressure transducers, a pulse radar distance measurement system, and a data acquisition system to collect gate position information.

The second solicitation, W912BV09T0113, includes a data collection platform and satellite transmitter, satellite antenna, radar level recorder, rain gauge, wind sensor, air temperature and humidity sensor, and air temperature and radiation shield.

The Corps said the type of solicitation issued will depend upon responses to the sources sought notices. The agency expects to issue a solicitation about Oct. 26, with proposals to be due Nov. 6.

The sources sought announcements may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering the solicitation numbers above in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.
