Herbert Hoover Dike Industry Day Set for Next Week
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, will hold the Herbert Hoover Dike (HHD) Industry Day on March 28 in Palm Beach Gardens.
A short presentation on the Herbert Hoover Dike Project and information on upcoming projects and technical requirements will be given.
“Opportunities for prime contractors and potential sub-contractors to discuss capabilities and sub-contracting opportunities will be offered,” USACE said.
Herbert Hoover Dike (HHD) is a 143-mile earthen dam that surrounds Lake Okeechobee, the heart of the Kissimmee-Okeechobee-Everglades system. The project reduces impacts from flooding as a result of high lake levels for a large area of south Florida.
Corps teams work daily on the dike, providing contractor oversight, quality assurance, inspections and dike operations and maintenance.
