    • SID is replacing leaking corp stops weekly as many 3-4/day
  • Discrepancies have been found with meter quantities and quantity of each size. This discrepancy will likely require a change order; however, the specific dollar amount and quantity may not be known until after the project is completed. At the moment, approximately 161 additional meters may be required.
