ARTICLE. Coastside County Water District (CCWD) Authorizes Purchase of 100 Clow Wet Barrel Hydrants
Mr. Derbin reviewed the background and informed the Board that the District currently has approximately 700 hydrants throughout the distribution system and that the current Capital Improvement Program includes $140,000 per year for dry barrel hydrant replacement through fiscal year 2023/2024.
He explained that staff had learned of a recent price increase of $735 per hydrant from the manufacturer, Clow, and is suggesting that the District purchase 100 hydrants before the increase in price takes effect.
He added that although staff will not be able to install 100 hydrants in this fiscal year, staff expects to meet or exceed the annual goal of 50 hydrant replacements.
