Last November, Cheshire voters approved $32 million in spending for necessary upgrades at the town's Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Now, the Town of Cheshire finally has some hard numbers as to what that work may actually cost.
Four bids were received on work that will aim to upgrade much of the equipment with the plant.
The low bid was submitted by Carlin Contracting out of Waterford, at $27.9 million. The high bid came courtesy of R.H. White Construction & Service Solutions out of Massachusetts at $32.9 million.
The middle bids were submitted by Daniel O'Connor and Sons ($31.7 million), which has an office in New Haven, and CH Nickerson out of Torrington ($30 million).
While Carlin's low bid comes in under the $32 million approved by voters, the final price of the project could exceed that total number. The Town will now begin discussions as to which bid it will accept.
