LAVALLETTE — The Lavallette borough council approved several refurbishment projects for the water treatment plant on Washington Avenue, including paint and filter repairs.
One of the resolutions approved by the council authorizes a proposal from Van Cleef, an engineering firm with a Toms River location, for a repainting project at the water treatment facility.
“The water treatment plant inside at Washington Avenue suffered over 30, 40 years from high humidity,” said Mayor Walter LaCicero. “The paint is literally flaking off the equipment. We did have the filters rebuilt a couple of years ago, and it was recommended at that time that we paint; this is how long it’s taken us to get the appropriate bids.”
Another resolution related to the water treatment plant awarded a contract, totaling $43,200, to P.A. Inc. for the “rehabilitation” of the facility’s filtration system.
“We had it done once, and we’re doing additional work for those filters,” the mayor said.
