U.S. Corps sets industry day on Harlan Dam spillway gate rehabilitation project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has scheduled an industry day for firms interested in rehabilitating spillway tainter gates at Harlan County Dam in Nebraska. Registration is due by Feb. 1 for the Feb. 6 meeting in Kansas City.

The Corps’ Kansas City District also extended the deadline to Feb. 1 for responses to its request for information on firms able to rehabilitate the spillway gates. The Corps previously set Jan. 4 deadlines for responses to that request and another for information on firms that could provide stoplogs for the work.

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.

In a sources sought notice, the Corps seeks information on firms capable of strengthening structural steel components of the 40- by 30-foot gates, replacing existing trunnions and bearings, replacing gate chains, repairing or replacing electrical systems, and blasting and painting the gates. The Corps plans to use responses to the notice for market survey purposes to receive suggestions to make the work less difficult and to determine the type of solicitation to be issued.

The industry day is scheduled for 1 p.m., Central time, Feb. 6 at the Bolling Federal Building in Kansas City, Mo. The meeting is to improve industry’s understanding of the Corps’ requirements and answer questions about the tainter gate repair project. Interested contractors must supply the names of no more than two attendees by Feb. 1 to both e-mail addresses below.

The sources sought notice, draft specifications, and the industry day notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912DQ13R1004 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses to the sources sought notice now are due Feb. 1. 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.
