Denmark Launches New Website for Water System Updates
DENMARK, SC, November 5, 2019 – The City of Denmark has launched a new website to keep the public informed about improvements coming to the city’s water system over the next several months. The web address is www.denmarkwatersupply.com.
Denmark Mayor Gerald Wright said the new site was developed in response to citizen concerns about the water supply and to highlight an extensive modernization program that will upgrade all major parts of the water system.
“As the site points out, to maintain public confidence, we need a new water system with the latest technology, new piping, state-of-the-art pumps and fresh new tanks,” Mayor Wright said. “We are working in an orderly and systematic way to obtain funds to make these improvements.”
Wright said earlier this month the City announced that a $332,146.91 bid from Southern Fiber Construction and Management Company LLC was recommended out of six total bids for water line replacement. The Town is also accepting bids for rehabilitation of two water tanks. Additional announcements concerning upgrades are expected soon.
In addition, one of Denmark’s four current wells has been abandoned, and three others are being upgraded. A new 400 gallons-per-minute well will be added to the system, as well as a new 500,000-gallon elevated storage tank. Automated flushing devices will be installed in key locations throughout the water system, greatly enhancing our ability to reduce or eliminate discoloration without the use of manpower.
“We hope Denmark residents and people around the state who have an interest in this issue will utilize the new website as a reliable, up-to-date source of information,” Wright said.
