Camas awards sewer contract

Rotschy Inc. submitted bids totalling $10.47M for North Shore project

The Camas City Council has approved two contracts, totalling $10.47 million, with Rotschy Inc., for construction of the North Shore sewer transmission system and the 43rd Avenue storm pipe and ditch fill.

The city also received bids from Tapani Inc., Wildish Standard Paving Co. and Nutter Corporation.

The sewer transmission system project will begin at a pump station that will be built at Goodwin Road. It will then cross Camp Currie to a second pump station at 232nd Avenue.

The line will continue down Leadbetter, where another pump station will be constructed on private property approximately one-quarter mile from the intersection of Evergreen and Leadbetter.

“It will keep their team busy for a solid year,” Camas Utilities Manager Sam Adams said, regarding Rotschy, of Vancouver.

The sewer pipeline construction project will serve the area north of Lacamas Lake, which is expected to be the location of residential, commercial and light industrial development. The project will include 11 miles of pipeline and two pump stations.

The Camas School District will pay $2.5 million as part of an agreement with the city to install the water line extension, as well as sewer line and fiber conduit.

The extension of a waterline will serve the future Lacamas Heights Elementary School.

Construction of the new $44.6 million facility, to be located on Northeast Ninth Street, off of 232nd Avenue, will begin in June. It is scheduled to be complete in August 2018.
