Corps awards monitoring contract for three Columbia River Basin hydropower projects

Chief Joseph Dam

Columbia Basin Environmental has won a US$36,700 contract to perform total dissolved gas and temperature monitoring at three hydroelectric projects in the Columbia River Basin.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Seattle District last solicited bids for the work in March, which calls for services at the 2,457-MW Chief Joseph Dam on the Columbia River in Washington, 525-MW Libby Dam on the Kootenai River in Montana, and 42.6-MW Albeni Falls Dam on the Pend Oreille River in Idaho.

Per the contract, Columbia Basin Environmental will provide the installation of government-owned and supplied gas and temperature probes as well as their maintenance and calibration, plus a special temperature study on the Pend Oreille River at Albeni Falls Dam.

The work is to be performed through March 2014 with an option for two additional years.
