Updating Wastewater System with New Pipes and Service Lines
MONROE, NC (March 13, 2017) -- Union County Public Works (UCPW) is taking steps to ensure that businesses in downtown Waxhaw will have a better, more reliable wastewater system.
The organization has awarded a contract to Harvest Environmental Services, Inc. for the rehabilitation and replacement of several old pipes and service lines in the area, many of which were installed in 1935. Their replacement is necessary due to overall pipe condition, serviceability, and modifications necessary to meet current regulations.
The project includes service to businesses on W. South Main Street between S. Providence and S. Church Street and an extension of sewer along King Street. Work is scheduled to be complete in October.
“Rehabilitation and replacement is a very important part of what Union County Public Works does to serve our residents,” said Scott Huneycutt, Director of Engineering for UCPW. “We want to provide our residents with the most safe and reliable service available. We’re proud to update Waxhaw with secure and dependable infrastructure.”
Harvest Environmental Services, Inc. is a specialty services corporation headquartered in Matthews, North Carolina. Harvest has expertise in performing a wide variety of civil and environmental services in the industrial, municipal, government, commercial and residential markets. The corporation was awarded $374,643.50 for the project, of which they had the lowest bid.
