USA: Contract Awarded for Middle Decatur Bend Project

An $895,000 contract has been awarded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, to Western Contracting of Sioux City, Iowa for the restoration of a backwater at Middle Decatur Bend in Burt County, Neb.

The proposed project will restore the connection between Middle Decatur’s backwater lake and the Missouri River. The backwater serves as shallow water habitat which provides feeding, spawning, and rearing habitat for native fish and other aquatic species.

The proposed project is being constructed as part of the Corps’ Missouri River Recovery Program, which mitigates for the loss of fish and wildlife habitat that occurred as a result of the construction of the Missouri River Bank Stabilization and Navigation Project, and helps to fulfill the requirements of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2003 Amended Biological Opinion for the Operation of the Missouri River Main Stem Reservoir System, Operation and Maintenance of the Missouri River Bank Stabilization and Navigation Project, and Operation of the Kansas River Reservoir System.

Limited clearing and grubbing work is likely to take place this winter to avoid potential impacts to nesting migratory birds. The remaining work (dredging and placing rock) will take place throughout the spring and summer of 2014 with completion anticipated in the fall of 2014.
