Explanation
* Propst Construction Company has developed a guaranteed maximum price (GMP) for construction of the Davidson Water Transmission Main. The construction will include 16,000 linear feet of new water main, ranging from 12 to 24-inch diameter, through the Town of Davidson into Iredell County (adjacent to Council Districts 2 and 4).
