The Bureau of Reclamation plans to seek bids from small businesses to perform concrete repairs to Trenton and Enders dams in Nebraska. Bids are expected to be due about Feb. 3, 2011.
Trenton and Enders dams are part of the Frenchman-Cambridge Division of the Pick-Sloan Missouri Basin Program. While they primarily provide water storage for irrigation along the Republican River, Trenton and Enders have been considered by a government study to be potential sites of hydropower projects of 15.4 MW and 6.8 MW.
Work at the 144-foot-tall earthfill Trenton Dam is to include concrete repairs on a spillway bridge, deck, beams, piers, and support pedestals; core drilling new deck drains on the spillway bridge main spans; repairing erosion damage on the dam's left embankment; and moving and replacing gutter drains on the left embankment.
Work at the 134-foot-tall earthfill Enders Dam is to include concrete repairs to the spillway floor and bridge; repairing bearing devices under bridge beams; and installing sealant in expansion joints on the gate operating deck.
A total set-aside for small business, the work is expected to cost between $500,000 and $1 million.
A pre-solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. R11PS60085 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box. A solicitation is expected to be issued about Jan. 4, with bids due about Feb. 3.
