Site for water treatment plant not a done deal

March 25, 2014

WOONSOCKET – Even though the city has already spent $390,000 on land to build a future water treatment plant, the Budget Commission has instructed an engineering company to re-evaluate five other sites that were previously rejected by an advisory panel.
At the urging of Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt, the commission voted 3-1 to hire the firm Camp, Dresser McKee to include the review as a component of a broader, $327,000 contract related to the plant.
Just about $27,350 of the contract is for site review, the balance for preliminary testing of water that is needed to determine the design of the plant. Still, the administration drew fire for hiring CDM without competitive bidding and for delaying the project with an unnecessary search for a new location.
“This has been studied to death,” Councilman Dan Gendron told The Call.
