Plymouth Utility Superintendent Gives Update on Wastewater Treatment Plant Project

Plymouth Utility Superintendent Donnie Davidson gave the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety members an update on the wastewater treatment facility plant improvement project.

He asked that $30,000 be shifted for the purchase of inspections and construction engineering. He said this will not affect the bottom line. The board approved the request.

He added that there would be a change in the contract with Midwestern Engineers.

Davidson noted that the improvement project will be substantially complete by mid-December. Final completion is set for April 21, 2018 but it may fluctuate with the weather.

In his report, Davidson reported that the department saved about $14,000 in inspection fees in the water main project on Goshen Road. About $10,000 in inspection fees and $1,000 in easement fees were saved on the Richter Road project as the employees were able to conduct a lot of the inspections themselves.
