U.S. seeks spillway dike stabilization at 494-MW Big Bend hydro project

Big Bend Hydroelectric Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids for spillway dike bank stabilization at Old Fort Thompson at the 494.3-MW Big Bend hydroelectric project in South Dakota. Bids are due Sept. 9.

The Corps' Omaha District issued a similar call for the work in 2012. The Corps announced last year that it anticipated tendering for a large volume of contracts to repair damage from 2011 flooding in the Missouri River Basin, including work affecting Big Bend and five other major Corps hydroelectric projects.

The agency awarded contracts in 2012 to J.F. Brennan Co. Inc. for rehabilitation of spillway gates and to Brunow Contracting LLC for dam embankment repairs at Big Bend.

The Omaha District now seeks bids from Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) small businesses for spillway dike bank stabilization at Old Fort Thompson, Big Bend Dam. Work includes peaked stone revetments requiring about 20,500 tons of stone, 8,000 cubic yards of fill, geotextile material, and grading, at a cultural resource site adjacent to Lake Sharp. The work is valued at $500,000 to $1 million.
