Award of Contract for Chateau Eau Plains

Award of Contract for Chateau Eau Plains Water Improvement Project
Posted on 05/05/2020
The Pleasant Prairie Village Board approved a $2,593,956 award of contract to Fisher Excavating Inc. for the Chateau Eau Plains Water Improvement Project. The decision to award the contract came during the virtual Village Board meeting on Monday, May 4. The water improvement project in Chateau Eau Plains allows Fisher to move forward on the project to develop plans that addresses failing infrastructure, improves drainage conditions, and evacuates nuisance water from the area.  

In February, bids were collected for the Chateau Eau Plains Water Improvement Project. The Village received two quotes before the request for proposal closing on February 27. Fischer Excavating of Freeport, Illinois, offered the lowest proposal of $2,593,956. Reesman’s Excavating & Grading Inc. of Burlington, Wisconsin, submitted the second bid of $2,998,680. 

“The project bids were collected in February to gain realistic projects estimates,” said Matt Fineour, Village Engineer. “Pleasant Prairie staff wanted to have actual numbers, so they could bring the actual special assessment numbers to the public hearing that was held virtually on Monday, April 27.  

The bid from Fisher Excavating is under the proposed project budget of nearly $3 million. The budget for the water improvement project comes from the Clean Water Utility, with some costs being reimbursed by property owners through special assessments. The project also includes contributions from the Water Utility, Sewer Utility, and Paving program. Project construction will begin after June 1, with substantial completion by October 31, and work finalized by November 15, 2020. 

Chateau Eau Plains is located south of State Highway 50 and north of 82nd Street, between 104th and 115th Avenues. The subdivision was constructed in 1977 before the community had a planning or developing process in place. The existing roadside ditches are relatively flat, which has resulted in a history of stormwater drainage issues and complaints. The storm sewer designs in this project intend to alleviate the drainage problems in the Chateau Eau Plaines subdivision.
