City picks contractor for $4.5M treatment plant upgrade

NORWICH – Pending approval from state and federal agencies, a Binghamton-area company will begin replacing 18 outdated filters at the city’s wastewater treatment plant in December, officials announced earlier this month.

Jett Industries, a Colesville company that touts itself as a “leading general contractor in construction and rehabilitation of water and wastewater treatment facilities,” was awarded the contract, tentatively, as the lowest qualified bidder for $2.589 million at a Common Council meeting Sept. 1.

Additional expenses, totaling $1.9 million, will push the project’s price tag to an estimated $4.5 million, city Finance Director Williams J. Roberts said.

“There are a number of costs associated with the project apart from the construction,” Roberts explained, “including engineering, contingency, design, legal, miscellanious components and financial services.”
