BUCKEYE LAKE – It will cost about $26,000 less than expected to extend waterlines 1,700 feet along Hunts Landing Road and loop the village’s first ever water distribution system.
Three bids were opened Tuesday morning for the estimated $88,000 project. Perry Reclaiming, Inc. of Corning was the apparent low bidder with a bid of $62,400. Conie Construction of Columbus came in second with a $76,015 bid. Layton Excavating of Newark bid $87,765.
Perry Reclaiming’s bid will be reviewed before the contract is awarded. The company build the village’s booster station on Ohio 79 where the water distribution system connects with Millersport’s pipeline. It will take about 30 days to award the contract, Jack Christy of ME Companies told a company representative Tuesday.
The company will have 120 calendar days to complete the waterline extension which includes two fire hydrants. The project is being funded with money leftover from Buckeye Lake’s $5 million federal stimulus grant to install the water distribution system.
