Engineers have been given the go-ahead to seek bids on an $845,000 project to replace an insert in a lagoon at the town’s wastewater treatment plant.
The liner was heavily damaged during Hurricane Matthew.
The $845,000 project was just cleared by FEMA under its Disaster Recovery Program.
“They have cleared us to proceed with the project and we will go to bid with it on Nov. 12,” said Town Manager Charles Brown.
He said the bids will be left open for at least 30 days because of the complexity of the project.
“There is not that many people out there who do this kind of work, so we want to make sure we give everybody an opportunity to respond,” Brown said.
Work will probably not begin until after the first of the year.
He said it is probably about a six-month project.
The lagoon was designed to hold treated wastewater.
