            Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced today that Bodell Construction Company, Frank Coluccio Construction Company, and MIRA Image Construction were the apparent low bidders for three wastewater projects valued at nearly $20.9 million.

            Mayor Hannemann said, “We are fulfilling our promise to repair our long-neglected sewer system and wastewater treatment plants with these major capital investments.  These projects are constructed with the money that is collected in sewer fees.  We will continue to devote our resources to improving our island infrastructure with projects like these.”

            Bodell bid $10.95 million for the Kailua Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and Collection System Odor Control Improvement, Phase 1.  This project involves injecting chemicals into two pretreatment facilities, one pump station and the WWTP to control odors.  Additionally, the foul air treatment systems will be upgraded by replacing the existing catalytic scrubber with a new filter system, utilizing the existing biotowers to treat foul air from the primary treatment units, enclosing the dewatering building to reduce emissions from sludge handling, and installing a cleaner burning gas flare for digester gas.  The projects will begin around November 2009 and take about 15 months to complete. 

            Coluccio, the low bidder for the Kailua/Kaneohe Sewer Manhole and Pipe Structural Rehabilitation, entered a bid of $3.31 million for the Kailua Beach Park, Kaneohe Yacht Club, Bay View Golf Course and Oneawa Street areas.  The project involves installation of 1,488 lineal feet of Cured-in-Place Pipe liner (CIPP), 125 lineal feet of new pipe by open-cut construction and the rehabilitation of 35 manholes.  The tentative start date is November 2009 and should last about nine months.

            MIRA submitted a low bid of about $6.64 million for the Kahanu Street, School Street, and Umi Street Relief Sewer project.  The project involves installation of 1,552 feet of CIPP, 4,209 lineal feet of new pipe by open-cut construction, and the rehabilitation of 22 manholes. 

            The low bidders still must go through a procurement evaluation before the final contracts are awarded.
