Augusta wins water-sewer contract for Fort Gordon

  • Follow Metro

Augusta-Richmond County was awarded a contract for nearly $37 million this week to provide drinking water and wastewater treatment services to Fort Gordon, according to the U.S. Defense Department.

The contract, announced Tuesday, is to be administered by the U.S. Army Contracting Command with a specified completion date of Sept. 30, 2022.

Various upgrades have been under way since 2008, when a $290 million, 50-year contract was approved to gradually link Fort Gordon to Augusta’s freshwater and wastewater treatment systems.

The improvements, which will include 130 miles of water and sewer pipes, 540 fire hydrants and 1,500 sewage manholes, are funded by the federal government.

Why are we replacing functional equipment again???? They could use what is there and not completely redo something already in place. This is kind of dumb considering we need to save not spend money...Now you place a munipality in charge of something they can't even maintain of their own...Not too smart!!!!!!!1
