Glen Canyon Dam is a vital
link in the Colorado River
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is overseeing the project, which involves work on four generators, each with 46 two-sided, 1,100-square-foot deck plates—184 plates in all. The plates are of various shapes and sizes. One side of each plate is flat; the other has 2” angle iron welded on for support.
The plates will be made available to the contractor for shop priming in two sets of 23 for each generator. The second set will become available once the first group is returned primed and installed. The existing coatings may contain lead. The Bureau must approve the new primer.
The contractor will be expected to provide shipping both ways. This is a Total Small Business set-aside project.
Part of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Utah and Arizona, the dam is a vital link in the Colorado River Storage Project, a series of dams and reservoirs along the Colorado River. These dams and their reservoirs work together to provide water, electricity, flood control, and recreation to millions of people.
Glen Canyon Dam, built between 1956 and 1966, stands 710 feet from bedrock and holds back 26,215,000 acre-feet of water, or 9 quadrillion gallons, when Lake Powell is full.
