(Friday, July 16, 2010)Mayor Mufi Hannemann announced today the City has awarded two more sewer project contracts – Lualualei Force Main and Beachwalk Pump Station.

            “We continue to invest heavily in repairing our sewer collection system and wastewater treatment plants in keeping with our capital improvement priorities,” Hannemann said.  “The money we collect in sewer fees goes exclusively to these projects.  Moreover, the work we do today will ensure that future generations will not have to face the same problems as we have.”

            Oceanic Companies Inc. won the bid at $4.3 million to make various improvements at the Beachwalk Wastewater Pump Station in Waikiki.  The improvements to increase the reliability of the pump station include upgrading the pumps, upgrading the electrical and SCADA and instrumentation systems, rehabilitating the wetwell, repairing the roof, and improving the building’s foundations.  Construction is estimated to begin in December 2010 and take two years.
