Killeen City Council members were on board at Tuesday’s workshop meeting with allowing the city to accept a bid to complete its manhole rehabilitation project.

The final phase of the project includes the rehabilitation of 632 manholes and cleanouts, said Sean Ray, city project engineer.

Ray said the city recommended the council accept the bid submitted by Insituform Technologies LLC, for just more than $296,000.

The project is part of the city’s professional services agreement with Pipeline Analysis, approved in May 2012. Phase three of the project included the city’s sanitary sewer evaluation survey, which called for the inspection of 2,820 manholes and 860 mainline cleanouts. Of those, 632 were found to have defects that city staff cannot fix in-house, according to city documents.

On May 10, Ray said phase two of the project was completed with the rehabilitation of 3,590 manholes for $1.7 million.

According to city documents, the near $300,000-phase of the project is being funded from a 2007 water and sewer bond fund.

The council will vote Tuesday on whether to accept the bid.
