U.S. seeks gate bulkheads for Mississippi River dam

Lock and Dam 25

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids from small businesses to supply six tainter gate bulkheads for Mississippi River Lock and Dam 25 near Winfield, Mo. Bids are due Aug. 30.

The Corps' St. Louis District recently called for architect-engineers for civil works and engineering for dams in the region.

Commissioned in 1939 on the upper Mississippi, Lock and Dam 25 has 14 tainter gates that pivot vertically and are raised or lowered to control the depth of water upstream. Although there is no hydropower at Lock and Dam 25, the city of Quincy, Ill., holds a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission preliminary permit to study adding a 20-MW project at the site.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the St. Louis District now seeks bids to supply six fabricated tainter gate bulkheads.

A solicitation notice may be obtained from the Federal Business Opportunities Internet site, www.fbo.gov, by entering solicitation No. W912P913R0725 in the "Keyword/Solicitation #" box.

Bids are due Aug. 30. For information, contact Angie L. Grimes, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District, Attn.: CEMVS-CT, 1222 Spruce St., St. Louis, MO 63103-2833; (1) 314-331-8965; E-mail: angie.l.grimes@usace.army.mil.
