The Iroquois Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade will be moving ahead now that a construction contract has been approved.
At the December 20th South Dundas council meeting, Chief Administrative Officer Stephen McDonald submitted the recommendation that J.C. Sulpher Construction Ltd. be awarded the contract with their tendered bid of $12,299,808 excluding HST.
The bid was one of seven received, coming in at $176,792 lower than the second lowest bid. AECOM reviewed all bids and recommended J.C. Sulpher Construction Ltd. to the Ontario Clean Water Agency, who, in turn, agreed and passed on the recommendation to South Dundas council.
In addition to being the lowest bid, J.C. Sulpher Construction Ltd. also provided excellent references, which included work done on the Morrisburg Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Councillor Jim Graham added his recommendation saying, “I’m glad to see Sulpher back. They did a fantastic job.”
