U.S. seeks fish counters for Columbia, Snake hydro projects

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on contractors able to perform fish counting services at eight federal hydroelectric projects on the Columbia and Snake rivers. Responses are due Oct. 18.

The Corps' Walla Walla District took proposals in September to provide biostatistical services for the Northwestern Region's Anadromous Fish Evaluation Program.

The agency currently seeks information on companies capable of performing counting services for the Fish Program of the Corps' Walla Walla and Portland districts.

Work would include counting adult fish passing through fish ladders at the Corps' eight mainstem dams on the Columbia and Snake rivers: 1,076.6-MW Bonneville, 1,780-MW Dalles, 2,160-MW John Day, 980-MW McNary, 603-MW Ice Harbor, 810-MW Lower Monumental, 810-MW Little Goose, and 810-MW Lower Granite.

Fish counting is to produce technical information to help the Corps make engineering and operational decisions to provide safe, efficient fish passage through the migration corridor. Various groups and agencies also use fish counts for research in the basins.

A sources sought notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering Solicitation No. W912EF11RSS48 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due by 4 p.m., Pacific time, Oct. 18. For information, contact Vicky Challis, Contract Specialist, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, 201 N. Third Ave., Walla Walla, WA 99362-1876; (1) 509-527-7210; E-mail: vicky.r.challis@usace.army.mil.
