$3.7 MIILION IN WATER WORKS PROJECTS

The Board of Water Supply (BWS) has awarded six construction contracts that total a little more than $3.7 million and will help the Department better manage Oahu's sources and distribution system, according to Manager and Chief Engineer Clifford Jamile.

“Completion of these projects will result in more efficient operations for our utility,” Jamile said. “We will be renovating and repairing some existing facilities and equipment that are no longer efficient due to aging. We will also be drilling a monitor well to observe conditions of the aquifer and help the BWS maintain our groundwater resources.”
