New Windsor Town Council awarded bids Wednesday for a water main extension and renovations to the pump station on Route 31 at the south end of town.
A. C. Schultes of Edgewood will complete the renovation project for $137,870, the lowest of five bids received for the work.
The contractor will replace the largest pump and add pipes to bring the station up to capacity in time for the September opening of a new middle school.
The town awarded the extension project to Stambaugh Inc. of Union Bridge for $41,726, the lowest of five bids.
Both contractors expect to begin work within the next few weeks.
