The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks information on firms able to perform flood control tunnel interior repairs at 517.8-MW Garrison Dam on the Missouri River in North Dakota. Responses are due Oct. 12.
The Corps' Omaha District recently awarded a contract worth US$3.4 million to ESI Contracting Corp. to rehabilitate drainage systems at Garrison. The Corps has been soliciting a large volume of contracts to repair 2011 flood damage in the Missouri River Basin, including work affecting Garrison and five other major Corps hydro projects.
The Corp currently seeks information on firms, including small businesses, with the interest and ability to work on the flood control tunnel. Responses will help determine the type of solicitation to be issued, probably in November.
Work, over 180 days, is to include removal and replacement of intake structure gantry crane wire rope, the east side air seal on flood control tunnel regulating gate No. 7, and trunnion bearing oil seals on three regulating gates. In addition, the trunnion bearing oiling system is to be refilled and evaluated for defects. Other options might be included in the contract.
