SACRAMENTO, Calif., U.S. 11/29/11 (PennWell) -- The Bureau of Reclamation has extended the deadline for bids to replace turbine runners and overhaul units at the 140-MW Trinity hydroelectric project on the Trinity River in California. Bids now are due Jan. 27, 2012.

Reclamation previously called for bids by Jan. 3. It requested information in August from small businesses capable of performing the work.
