Granite has been awarded a £19 million contract by Farmers Conservation Alliance (FCA) for the construction of the Derby Dam Fish Screen in Sparks, Nevada.
Granite says it will construct the Derby Dam fish screen to restore watershed connectivity and support fish movement along the Truckee River.
The scope of work includes the excavation of 60,000 cubic yards of soil, the use of 6,000 cubic yards of structural concrete, and the installation of eight control gates and five horizontal fish screens provided by FCA. The base rock will be supplied by Granite’s Lockwood materials facility.
Construction will be completed in autumn 2020.
