SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Phase II of South Whitleyâ€™s wastewater treatment facility renovation continues to forge ahead as Project Manager David Harvey â€” with Fleis and Vandenbrink â€” presented the latest bulletin to South Whitley Town Council members Tuesday evening.
Providing a wide-range of municipal services, Fleis and Vandenbrink is the townâ€™s engineering consultant.
With three bids received, Gerig-Ottenweller Construction was awarded the Phase II state-mandated renovation with a bid of $3,087,000 for the main project with an alternate bid of $27,000 for material revisions.
â€śThere is also a request for pricing on pipe bollards to protect the blowers that are outside of the building,â€ť Harvey said. â€śThe bollards were not included in the original quote and my concern was somebody running into the blowers. The blowers are elevated two feet off the ground on a concrete pad.â€ť
Harvey said the pipe bollards would be approximately four or five feet and set away from the unit.
â€śAlso, another bulletin will be prepared shortly to bring one of the chambers of the existing influent chamber to a man hole structure,â€ť Harvey said. â€śGravel is being filled in the existing chamber right now, along with a drawing made up.â€ť
