[ARCHIVED] Revised bids on treatment plant upgrade approved

Revised bids from four separate contactors to upgrade and expand different components of the Brush Creek wastewater treatment plant, following the rejection of bids received in February, were accepted by Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors at its May 5 meeting. The revised bids, totaling $45.7 million, reflected a reconfiguration of the work plan with some key components being moved from the first to the second phase of the project, which isn’t expected to start until at least ten years after Phase One is completed. The initial round of bids came in at $56 million – substantially higher than the $42 million estimated by plant engineers. Work on the plant’s Phase One construction is still expected to be completed by 2019. The plant will continue normal operations throughout the entire 2½ year construction. The Board also approved documents authorizing the use or purchase of nearby land to provide parking for the contractors’ employees and for the transfer of fill resulting from excavation on the plant site.
