U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Announces Pre-Bid Meeting for Emergency Dredging of San Jacinto River
“Excessive debris from Hurricane Harvey is exacerbating and impeding the free flow of water down this portion of the West Fork of the San Jacinto River.”
“The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Galveston District, is requesting input from industry and others parties for an upcoming Emergency Dredging project. The Government has a requirement to dredge and remove shoal material within the West Fork of the San Jacinto River from Interstate 69 to the confluence of Lake Houston. Dredging limits, production rates, completion time and liquidated damages will be determined by the H&H modeling. Excessive debris from Hurricane Harvey is exacerbating and impeding the free flow of water down this portion of the West Fork of the San Jacinto River.”
“The purpose of this Industry Day is for planning purposes and improve the understanding of the Government requirements and industry capabilities, thereby allowing potential offerors to judge whether or how they can satisfy the Government’s requirements, and enhancing the Government’s ability to obtain construction services, at reasonable prices, and increase efficiency.”
Interested vendors can sign up to attend the meeting at the link above. ReduceFlooding.com will follow this project closely. Next steps include formulation of specifications, bidding, award of bid, and mobilization before actual dredging begins. However, the entire process is being expedited under the governor’s emergency proclamation.
