L-EWA approves clearwell repair project during meeting

The Lugoff-Elgin Water Authority (L-EWA) board unanimously approved a $150,192 repair project at the authority’s water treatment plant during its meeting Thursday. The project calls for improvements to a leaking clearwell tank, which would involve repairs of pits and holes, sandblasting, and recoating the tank inside and out. After receiving a recommendation from the authority’s engineering firm Brown and Caldwell, the board awarded the project to Southern Corrosion, Inc., a tank services company based in Roanoke Rapids, N.C. L-EWA General Manager Mike Hancock said requests for proposals were actually sent to five different companies, but only one bid was received, and L-EWA Attorney Jay Bender clarified that bid requirements were still satisfied since the organization sent requests to multiple companies.
