New water mains and water service lines, among other project details, are scheduled to be built at the Mescalero Apache Reservation, just under 100 miles to the north of Las Cruces.
The federal Indian Health Service, a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has issued a Request for Proposals for what is being called the Mescalero Well Connection and Water Main Extension project.
The overall four-month project, which could ultimately have a budget of up to $1 million, will see the construction of a new 6-inch PVC water main and associated appurtenances.
The project will also include new pump house plumbing.
One part of the project is segmented as the South Tularosa Well Connection, which will see a new water main, water main connections, valves, hydrants, and four pressure-reducing valve vaults.
The Orosco Drive Water Main Extension involves the construction of just under 2,800 linear feet of 6-inch PVC water main, the installation of new water service lines, and water meter can combinations.
Submission deadline for the RFP is June 8.
