The tank is to be delivered no later than June 10th and then the contractor should be filling is around June 30th. When the tank is ready to be filled, a notice needs to go out to all the residents notifying them that there is to be no outside watering. To truck the water in to fill the tank will cost approximately $7,000. Disinfection of the tank will cost around $1600.
The site is currently being prepared and line locates are being done. EAI will be upgrading the line between the tanks which Ray believes is a 6” line. Ray says there needs to be a new transducer for the new tank and he thinks he can use the existing vault. Scott & Sons are doing the dirt work and pipe; Longhorn Construction is doing the concrete pad and EAI is the tank itself.
