BOULDER CITY, Nev., U.S. 10/26/11 (PennWell) -- The Bureau of Reclamation has awarded contracts for a trashrack cleaner at 120-MW Parker Dam and for spillway concrete apron repair at the 50-MW Canyon Ferry hydroelectric project.

The agency awarded an $892,059 contract to Inland Potable Services Inc. of Centennial, Colo., to design, manufacture, and install a trashrack cleaner for the forebay inlet of Parker Dam, on the Colorado River, that will remove accumulated quagga mussels and aquatic plants, alleviate low flow velocities, and retrieve collected debris.

Parker, which currently has no trash rakes, includes 12 bays with two columns of trashracks per bay. Reclamation took bids for the work in September.
