Watershed District awards contract for second phase of dredging

Still partway through phase one, the Shell Rock River Watershed District is already checking off to-do items in preparation for phase two of the Fountain Lake dredging project.

Board members Tuesday approved another contract with J.F. Brennan Co. Inc., the dredging and marine construction company responsible for the first phase of dredging that began in spring 2018 and is intended to wrap up this fall. The phase two contract is to begin dredging in Fountain Lake’s main bay. According to the advertisement for bids put out by the Watershed District, the contract includes dredging approximately 604,000 cubic yards of sediment — with the potential for an increase to 704,000 cubic yards — as well as operation of the confined disposal facilities.

J.F. Brennan submitted the lowest bid price, just under $4.99 million, of three bids considered by the best value committee. The highest bid submitted was just over $8.85 million.
