U.S. seeks firms for seepage barrier work at Ohio’s Bolivar Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms capable of constructing a seepage barrier at Bolivar Dam, a flood control structure in northeastern Ohio. Responses are due Nov. 21.

Bolivar Dam is an 87-foot-tall, 6,300-foot-long embankment on Sandy Creek, a tributary of the Tuscarawas River. The Corps awarded a $4.7 million contract in September to TAB Construction Co. Inc. to install six service gates and rehabilitate gate works at the dam.

The Corps’ Huntington, W.Va., District now seeks information on firms capable of constructing a partial depth seepage barrier of 4,500 feet in length and 145 in depth through the upstream slope of the dam embankment terminating in the left abutment. The proposed contract would include an option for a grout curtain of 329 feet in length and 60 feet in depth in the left abutment from the end of the seepage barrier to near the emergency spillway. The work is expected to cost between $25 million and $100 million.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W9123713RSS01 in the “Keyword/Solicitation #” box.

Responses are due by 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, Nov. 21 by e-mail or fax to the address below. For information, contact Richard D.
