Lewis & Clark has awarded three more construction projects — a $16.4 million contract to Eatherly Constructors of Leawood, KS for 17 miles of 16-inch diameter PVC pipe between Hull and Sheldon, IA, a $4,471,900 contract to DN Tanks of Dallas for a one million gallon ground storage reservoir a few miles east of Madison, SD, and a $5,212,892 contract to West Branch Construction of Boyden, IA for a pump station a few miles south of Hull and a meter building at Sheldon, IA.

Eatherly and West Branch started construction this fall and DN Tanks will start construction in the spring. Funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will be used for all three projects.

Two pumps in the Hull pump station are part of the 44.19 million gallons a day (MGD) “base system.” The West Branch contract amount includes a $165,271 bid alternate for a third pump that represents the start of construction to expand the System to 60 MGD and will be paid for separately using non-federal funds. It is anticipated the expansion will be completed around 2030.
