Lewis & Clark awards pipeline contract for Madison service line

The Lewis and Clark Regional Water System has 32 miles of sixteen-inch diameter pipe left to construct for the Madison service line. Ten miles of sixteen-inch diameter pipe were previously constructed – five miles on the south end and five miles on the north end. These remaining 32 miles in the middle start just west of Crooks and go north.

Last week, the Lewis & Clark Board of Directors awarded a more than sixteen-and-a-half-million dollar contract to Halme Construction of Lake Norden to construct the southern sixteen miles of 16-inch diameter PVC pipe.  

Executive Director Troy Larson said that later this month, bids will be opened for the final 16 miles of the Madison service line. In late June, it is anticipated bids will be opened for seventeen miles of 16-diameter pipe between Hull and Sheldon, Iowa.

Later this year, contracts will also be awarded for a one-million gallon storage reservoir east of Madison and a meter building at Sheldon, Iowa. These are the last pieces of infrastructure needed in order to deliver water to both Madison and Sheldon.
