Flint approves contracts for nearly 750 more pipe replacements
The Flint City Council approved contracts with Goyette Mechanical and WT Stevens Construction to complete 748 more pipeline replacements.
The third phase will be funded using a portion of $25 million approved by the Michigan Legislature in June that was allocated for replacing Flint lead tainted pipes for Fast Start's third phase, which will replace infrastructure at an estimated 5,000 homes in Flint.
Project coordinator Michael McDaniel told the council the city received six bids for the third phase of replacements, but only Goyette and WT Stevens were able to do the work for $5,000 or less per home, which was a requirement placed on the state funding.
