Lower Monumental Hydropower Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to refurbish thrust bearing shoes at 810-MW Lower Monumental and 603-MW Ice Harbor dams on the Snake River in Washington. Bids are due June 30.

The Corps' Walla Walla District requested information in May on firms able to perform the work.
