LAVWMA set to OK $3-million-plus contract for pipeline work

Board also to meet today to approve canceling next 2 monthly meetings

The Livermore-Amador Valley Water Management Agency (LAVWMA) will hold a special meeting today where directors are expected to approve a $3 million contract to K.J Woods Construction to complete its western terminus pipeline project.

Also on the agenda is a motion to cancel meetings scheduled for August and September. The next board meeting would be Wednesday, Oct. 20.

The Western Terminus project calls for installing approximately 1,766 feet 42-inch pipes across park and marsh lands to reach the Bay. Because of muddy soil, high groundwater and high levels of environmental constraints and coordination, work days will be constrained.

The project is estimated to cost between $3.1 and $3.6 million, the low bid accepted last week by K.J. Woods Construction.

The company also submitted a low bid of $160,000-$250,000 for restoration and re-vegetation work at these sites. The work will include erosion control, planting and maintenance of jurisdictional wetland features, and repair of transitional and upland habitat areas disturbed during construction of the Western Terminus pipeline.
