Construction bids are sought by the city of Trenton on various improvements at the water treatment plant. Sealed proposals are due to the City Clerk at Trenton City Hall, by 2 o’clock on January 22. At that date and time, proposals will be opened and read aloud.

The scope of work under this contract consists of four major items according to a public notice provided by Trenton Municipal Utilities today.
At the water treatment plant, the contractor is to erect a building over the secondary settling basin, construct a new chlorine contact basin and building, construct a new chemical feed building, convert chemical feed room to lab/office,
construct related electrical, mechanical and site work; and replace the media in filter number 1.

Other work proposed at Trenton’s water treatment plant include installation of a new electrical service and main distribution panel, new generator, a new (480 by 120/240V) transformer, and new high service pump motors and drives. At the reservoir pump station, installation of a new generator. At the river pump station, installing a new motor control center.

More information regarding the specifics is available from the office of the Trenton City Clerk or from the office of consulting engineers, the Larkin Group, in Kansas City. A bid bond or certified check equal to five percent of the total amount of each section bid is to accompany each proposal. Wages paid for the work are to comply with requirements of the prevailing wage law of Missouri.

The city of Trenton says it reserves the right to reject any or all bids and to waive informalities to determine which is the lowest and best bid, to accept, at its option, any of the alternates, and to approve the bond.

A pre-bid meeting will be held at the water treatment plant at 1 o’clock the afternoon of January 3rd.

The proposed improvements are designed, part, to address the issue of trihalomethane levels in Trenton's water supply exceeding the
current government standards. The notice of violation has been issued to the city of Trenton 13 times since the first one occurred which covered a 12 month testing period of October 2008 to September 2009.

According to the Department of Natural Resources, the limit for trihalomethane level in a water supply the size of Trenton’s, is 80 micrograms per liter. Trenton’s testing, during the past several reporting periods, has ranged from 83 to 97 parts per billion.
