J.F. Brennan Wins Fountain Lake Dredging Contract

The Shell Rock River Watershed District Board of Managers yesterday approved a nearly $5.1 million contract with LaCrosse, Wisconsin-based J.F. Brennan Co. Inc. for the first phase of Fountain Lake dredging work, Albert Lea Tribune reports.

J.F. Brennan will complete initial survey and staging work in May, and the dredging operations are set to start in June.

Commenting this, Interim Watershed District Administrator, Andy Henschel, said: “J.F. Brennan is a reputable and experienced contractor, and their bid came in at $5.09 million — this translates to $7.30 per cubic yard. This is a fair outcome and clearly in our sweet spot for achieving the volume we wanted at a good price.”

“Opening up the bidding pool to allow contractors to utilize our dredge was clearly instrumental in achieving this final/favorable bid price. We clearly increased the competition between bidders by allowing contractors to bid that did not have their own equipment.”

The first phase of the work is expected to last until the end of 2019, according to Albert Lea Tribune.

The contractor is expected to use its pipeline and 14- to 16-foot dredger for this phase of work, removing up to 617,000 cubic yards of sediment from the bottom of Edgewater Bay.
