Eberhart Construction of Wake County and A.C. Schultes of Carolina, a Pender County company, are in position to win contracts to fix Lucama’s water treatment plant and one of the town’s bad wells to improve drinking water quality for residents, according to a report in the The Wilson Times.
Eberhart Construction submitted a bid of $215,000 to replace filter media in the town’s water treatment plant. A.C. Schultes submitted a bid of $77,241 to conduct rehabilitation work on Lucama’s Well No. 3.
Rich Moore of McDavid and Associates, the designer of Lucama’s drinking water upgrades, told the publication that he will recommend to the town to accept Eberhart’s bid for the water treatment plant rehabilitation and select A.C. Schultes for the rehabilitation of Well No. 3.
The North Carolina Division of Water Infrastructure has provided financial assistance to Lucama for the project.
