Four bids were received by the City of Buffalo for the first phase of the Buffalo Wells and Pipeline project, and were reviewed by the city council at their meeting Tuesday.
The first phase of the project will drill water wells west of town with phase two encompassing a pipeline project from the wells to the city’s water treatment plant for a backup water supply for the city.
City Works Director Les Hook said the number of wells is still to be determined.
Four bids were submitted to the city on the wells portion of the project from Wildcat Well Services at $68,535; Dan Hart Patrol at $69,445; MJ Drilling at $69,975: and White Mountain Operating at $83,152.
Hook said the project engineer and Wyoming Water Development Commission both recommended Wildcat Well Services be awarded the project, which the council approve
