Fire Hydrant Assessment Bid Awarded

SMITHFIELD – The Town of Smithfield has awarded a bid to locate and assess the Town’s fire hydrants east of the Neuse River. The council awarded the low bid to Vision NC.

Previously, the NC Division of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) Asset Inventory and Assessment (AIA) grant was awarded to the town in the amount of $150,000. A portion of those funds, $57,600, will be paid to Vision NC for the work.

The project includes physically locating the fire hydrants, assessing their conditions, and include the assessment into the Town’s Service Map.

Two other unsuccessful bids were received for the assessment. They were in the amounts of $61,280 and $65,110.
