ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Aberdeen officials have approved the sole bid on a $2.8 million water intake and channel improvement project at the water treatment plant.

The Aberdeen American News reports (https://bit.ly/1ujFQN8 ) City Manager Lynn Lander said Tuesday that $1.7 million in costs will be covered using capital improvement funds. Aberdeen will also use a $1 million loan from the state revolving fund and $50,000 from the James River Water Development District.

The project aims to reduce sediment buildup in the plant’s intake structures.

Water Treatment Plant Superintendent Janel Ellingson says the approved bid includes about $1.3 million in construction costs and about $1.1 million in rock for a large berm to filter out sediment. The bid also includes sheet piling work and dredging to create pond where groundwater will mix with river water.
