Construction of the Farville substation began earlier in the spring and the two main foundations for the switchgear and first power transformer have been completed as well as site work to prepare for a gravel with chat finish. The switchgear has been placed on its foundation and the metal building for the gear has been erected to enclose the gear. The transformer was installed on June 21st. Conduit and wiring schematics are currently under design. Breaker and bus structure foundations are scheduled to begin construction the first of September. The station is expected to be completed by the beginning of next summer.


CWL is in the process of designing for construction a 69kV transmission line from our Hergett substation to our Farville substation, currently under construction. CWL plans on using steel poles for the line and is in the process of pole design and ordering materials. CWL will utilize a bid process as part of the evaluation of utilizing the CWL workforce versus contract labor. CWL plans to bid the project in September. Completion date is scheduled for summer of 2014.


Plans and specifications are complete on Phase I of the NE Sewer Interceptor project, which is approximately 7,000’ of 42” gravity sewer line extending northward from the East Side Wastewater Treatment Plant to a point approximately 1,000’ north of Highway 63 (the “Bypass”). CWL accepted bids from contractors for the work, and bid opening was August 20. The low bid was received from Rosetta Contractors. They anticipate their start date to be early September with a completion date in late 2013 or early 2014.
