The Corps of Engineers has extended the due date for bids to build a fish collection facility at 25-MW Cougar Dam, on the South Fork of Oregon’s McKenzie River. The new date is Dec. 5.
Bids originally were due Nov. 26. (HNN 11/5/08) The Corps’ Portland District released the solicitation Oct. 29, about two weeks later than originally planned. (HNN 10/6/08) The work is to be completed over 18 months at a site directly downstream of the dam.
Prospective bidders were expected to inspect the site where work will be performed; a site visit was scheduled Nov. 13.
Cougar Dam is one of 13 dams in northwestern Oregon’s Willamette River Basin included in a biological opinion issued by NOAA Fisheries earlier this year. (HNN 7/14/08)
The Corps said it intends to award a single, firm, multi-year contract for the fish collection facility. Work will include fabrication and on-site civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical features. The Corps estimates the work will cost between $5 million and $10 million.
