City saves over $300,000 on sewer plant project


GREENFIELD — The city shaved over $300,000 off the cost of its new wastewater treatment plant after a contractor was able to make changes to its excavation work for the project.

Wastewater utility manager Nick Dezelan told the city’s board of public works and safety that over the course of the project, the contractor was able to make changes to means and methods for soil testing, hauling, stockpiling and disposal, leading to a net decrease of nearly $316,000 and bringing the new contract price to about $2.77 million.

The city is building a new plant, estimated at a total of about $39 million, to increase capacity and comply with environmental requirements.
