The San Mateo Resource Conservation District (SMRCD) welcomes contractors to bid on the Mindego Creek Fish Passage (Project) to restore fish passage to 5 miles of habitat in the San Gregorio Creek watershed. Project activities include removal of a fish migration barrier, channel restoration, and reconstruction of a diversion intake.

The purpose of this request for bids is to select a contractor for the Project to conduct the following implementation activities: (1) removal of the existing 6-foot high concrete dam and Denil-style fish ladder; (2) restoration of approximately 310 linear feet of channel through installation of stream simulation material, rock slope protection, boulders, and log structures; and (3) reconstruction of the diversion intake within an instream pool and installation of a new fish screen on the intake pipe. Implementation of these measures will restore fish passage and improve habitat conditions for federally threatened steelhead trout and federally endangered coho salmon.

A mandatory pre-bid tour will be held at the project site. Attendance is required for all bidders. RSVPs for the pre-bid tour are required.

When: May 11, 2022 from 9:00am to 11:00am

Where: Unincorporated San Mateo County at the Log Cabin Ranch Property near the community of La Honda, CA (driving directions will be provided upon RSVP)
