The rejected bid for the project of $333,770 was submitted by Ground Exchange LLC. Both bids were higher than the city’s project estimate of $289,739.
The project will include excavation of the channel at the dam and removal of excavated materials as well as erosion-control techniques and work on the dam’s embankment, according to city documents.
