Share
To date, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has assessed four facilities in the Dallas area. At this time no plans to convert infrastructure in the Canyon Lake-area have been announced, USACE spokesperson Clay Church said.

Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), which oversees Canyon Lake, has assembled field-assessment teams to evaluate existing sites for the possible conversion into alternate-care-facilities in Texas.

During emergencies, USACE is the federal government’s lead public works and engineering-support agency, USACE’s Forth Worth District said in a press release on March 29.

USACE said its teams are evaluating facilities across the state at the request of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the State of Texas.

To date, the team has assessed four facilities in the Dallas area. At this time no plans to convert infrastructure in the Canyon Lake-area have been announced, USACE spokesperson Clay Church said.

“Our engineers and technical experts are trained and prepared for this type of emergency response and are assisting the nation and the state of Texas to the very best of our capabilities during this crises,” said Col. Kenneth Reed, Fort Worth District commander. “We continue to work together to ensure our state has what it needs to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Information pertaining to specifications and implementation of the alternate care sites is available on the web at https://www.usace.army.mil/Coronavirus/Alternate-Care-Sites/.

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers is requesting all contractors with experience in build-out or retrofit of existing space into alternate care space (arenas, convention centers, dorms, hotels, etc.) to send Capability Statements to: COVIDContracting@usace.army.mil. This email address is only for capability statements for firms interested in the “build-out and retrofit of existing space into alternate care facilities.”

All other vendors, including companies that provide cleaning, disinfecting, and supplies, should visit and register their firm at www.beta.SAM.gov, as part of the National Disaster Response Registry.
