Gwinnett approves funds for water plant improvements

Pizzagalli Construction Co., Inc., the lowest of seven bidders, was awarded the contract for work at the plant off Holcomb Bridge Road near Norcross. Pizzagalli has also worked on Gwinnett’s two other main treatment plants, the 60-million gallon-per-day Hill Plant and the 22 mgd Yellow River Plant that is currently being rebuilt.

Federal stimulus funds will pay a portion of the interest cost on recovery zone economic development bonds for the project, according to Acting Water Resources Director Lynn Smarr.

“This project is another major piece of our ongoing program of upgrades to our water and sewer systems designed to comply with tighter environmental regulations and serve the county for the next 50 years,” said County Commission Chairman Charles Bannister.
