Getting a deal on Brock Road water transmission line
Supervisors last night accepted a bid from Walter C. Via Enterprises for construction of a 16-inch water main that will connect with an existing 16-inch water main at Brock and Gordon roads. This new line is required for the Courthouse area that currently has water pressure problems. The staff report says that water pressure would not be up to standards once the proposed new county government complex is built.
Via won the bid at $930,122, one of 19 bids. The highest was $1.7 million. The engineering estimate for this project was $2.4 million, so the county appears to be getting an incredible deal on this work.
