Bid day for water reuse distribution lines

The City of Kerrville will open bids for the water reuse distribution lines on Tuesday, January 17, at 3 PM. This is part of the Water Reuse Project, and includes construction of approximately 30,000 linear feet of distribution mains for treated effluent water. The estimated cost is $5-6 million.

As of today’s post, at least 76 contractors have downloaded specs and plans. Plans for the project can be viewed and downloaded here:¬†http://kerrvilletx.gov/bids.aspx?bidID=73

The lines are pictured below, and will traverse from the water treatment plant on Loop 534 to Schreiner University, Riverhill Golf Course, Peterson Middle School, and Holdsworth Athletic Complex.

The project was engineered by Freese & Nichols, a firm that has designed water reuse projects all over the state of Texas.
