Elkhart approves bid for new storage and pump facility

The Board of Public Works held a special meeting in the Elkhart Council Chambers to announce the winning bid for a new storage and pump facility.  The storage facility will hold a million-gallon storage tank to divert water before it flows into the river during a storm.  

There were four bidders for this project, with the winning bid being awarded to Grand River Construction.  The bid was for $7,090,885.

Elkhart City Engineer, Michael Machlan said they expect work to begin around the first week of July.  "Basically they will be starting after Fourth of July weekend," Machlan said, "and they need to be substantially complete by September 2015."

This project is pending State Revolving Fund (SRF) approval, which the city expects to happen around June 20t
