The construction of a new water pumping station came in at about $260,000 under budget, according to officials at a Bloomington Utilities Service Board meeting on Feb. 24.
Michael Hicks, the Utilities Department’s capital projects manager, submitted a change order on the $6.5 million project.
“The project is complete and with the approval of this change order we can close out the project with our contractor,” Hicks said.
The construction was performed by the Orleans-based company Layne Incorporated, but the engineering was done by the Kansas-based company Black and Veatch.
