PROJECTS IN PROGRESS:
McKinnon Wellfield Infrastructure and Pumpbuilding
This Project entails rerouting the McKinnon wellfield supply infrastructure and replaces an obsolete pumphouse with a new solid building that will allow for more robust control.
Bid closing was July 17 @4pm. Plans and Contract Documents are available electronically for free, or in print for $100. Check https://www.lfpwd.org/files/mck for the complete package.
Thank you for your interest in this project. No bids were received and we are presently evaluating our options of how to best complete the work.
We are currently installing water flow meters throughout the distribution system that enable us to monitor system demand in various pressure zones. This integrates with our telemetry system to provide real-time and historical information to better operate and diagnose issues in the system.
