The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish has issued a Request for Proposals for the demolition and removal of an existing hatchery facility and the subsequent construction replacement of a new production building.
The Glenwood Gila Trout Facility is located in the town of Glenwood, about 45 miles to the north of Silver City.
Work on the project will also entail the building of an aeration head tank and recirculation station. Also included: a new infiltration gallery as well as infiltration gallery pump station and overall electrical improvements.
The Glenwood facility is one of half a dozen such hatcheries around the state operated by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.
Built in 1938, but remodeled in the mid-1970s, the Glenwood facility has historically produced trout for the lakes and streams of the southwestern part of the state.
An RFP submission deadline for the project is March 19.
