The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation will accept bids June 9 for cleaning and coating on California’s Stampede Power Plant and Switchyard—a painting contract estimated at $100,000 to $250,000.

The 3,650 kW dam on the Little Truckee River is about 12 miles northeast of Truckee, CA, in Sierra County.

The plant went online in 1988.

Scope of Work

The project includes coating structural steel in the switchyard area, including a 69kV switch and take-off structure and supports; a 60 kV power transformer (including flow coating the radiators); and a 3000 cfm heating and ventilating unit.

The switchyard structures and air handler will be abrasive blast-cleaned and coated with a zinc-epoxy-polyurethane system. The transformer surfaces, including radiator surfaces to be flow-coated, will be brush-off blast-cleaned and coated with either a long-oil alkyd/long-oil epoxy ester/silicone alkyd system, a long-oil alkyd/urethane alkyd/silicone alkyd system, or an alkyd/alkyd/silicone alkyd system.

The existing coatings on the air handler unit contain lead; containment according to SSPC-Guide 6 will be required.

About the Facility

Stampede Powerplant is a run-of-the-river plant, according to the Bureau of Reclamation. The power generated goes first to the project facilities. The remaining energy is marketed to customers in Northern California.

The dam is a zoned earthfill structure with a height of 239 feet, a crest length of 1,511 feet, and an embankment volume of 4.5 million cubic yards. The dam is 40 feet wide at the crest. The reservoir, with a capacity of 226,500 acre-feet, provides flood control, recreation, a new reservoir fishery, and other fishery improvements on the main Truckee River, Little Truckee River, and Boca Reservoir.

The project was designed to improve runoff regulation from the Truckee and Carson River systems, to provide supplemental irrigation water and drainage for presently irrigated lands, and to provide water for municipal and industrial and fishery uses, flood protection, fish and wildlife benefits, and recreation development.
