§                     This project will install a master meter and backflow preventer on the east and west side of the terminal complex, creating a single Charlotte Water account for the terminal campus.

§                     This will allow for the removal of multiple meters and backflow devices inside the new campus area and will increase water pressure inside of the terminal.

§                     State Utility Contractors, Inc. was selected as the lowest responsive, responsible bidder.
