U.S. sets bidding to repair Jennings Creek Dam 3 in Tennessee

The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has set the deadline for bids from small businesses to repair storm damage to Jennings Creek Dam No. 3 in Jackson County, Tenn. Bids are due Sept. 16.

Jennings Creek No. 3 is one of nine dams for which the NRCS said it would take bids to repair storm damage. Bids for the other projects are due Sept. 6, 7, and 8.

The Natural Resources Conservation Service, a unit of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, awarded $60 million in contracts in 2009 for professional services related to dam safety assessment, design, design review, and construction management.

NRCS said spillway outlet channels of Jennings Creek Dam No. 3 were severely damaged during a May 2010 flood. The primary portion of the work is to install two grouted rock riprap chutes in the spillway outlet channels to stabilize the auxiliary spillways. The work is expected to require 98 days for a cost between $250,000 and $500,000.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. AG4741S110013 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box. A site visit is scheduled at 9 a.m. Sept. 8.
