Bids are invited for the furnishing of materials, equipment, labor, and incidentals necessary to convert the existing wet well to an influent manhole and relocate the lift station to an unimproved right-of-way located on the east side of Menge Avenue, which includes the construction of a new lift station (i.e., wet well, valve vault, controls, recessed impeller pumps, discharge piping, SCADA, etc.). The Project involves ex- tending the new 16” HDPE gravity sewer to the new lift station location by horizontal directional drilling on grade. The 8” HDPE force main piping from the new valve vault to the connection to the existing force main shall also be installed by HDD methods, in an effort to avoid working near the 6” high pressure gas main on the east side of Menge Avenue. Other items of work include but are not limited to: proper maintenance of traffic; storm water management; and surface restoration. An  additive alternate is provided for installing an interior protective coating inside the new wet well. The work of installing the new wet well may require constructing a cofferdam for the wet well installation, bypass pumping and dewatering as required to complete the work.
