Centralia to Install Over 2,600 Feet of New Sewer Lines for About $1.26 Million


The Centralia City Council voted during its Tuesday meeting to award the bid for the replacement of 2,637 linear feet of sanitary sewer lines in the Alexander/Aurora and March/Elm areas to Rognlin’s Inc. for about $1.26 million.

The project will see the new line connected to 52 city sewer customers, the replacement of 10 sanitary manholes and an extension of sewer mains in the affected areas, according to meeting agenda documents.

The $1.27 million Rognlin’s Inc. bid came in at the lowest among four total bids.

Landis & Landis Construction put in a bid of about $1.27 million, Northwest Cascade’s bid came in at about $1.3 million and Budget Sewer bid about $1.6 million.

The city engineer estimated the project would cost between $870,000 and $1.3 million.

Centralia City Council had already budgeted $600,000 for a project like this in the 2022 wastewater department budget, but a budget amendment of $660,649.02 will be needed to carry out the work at the contracted price.
