Stambaugh's wins contract for New Windsor well house

January 27, 1998

New Windsor has awarded a $183,000 contract for building a well house to Stambaugh's Inc., a Union Bridge excavating company.

The project involves construction of a shelter for two existing wells and an access road to the one-acre property from Hillside Drive.

The excavating company offered the lowest of eight bids and won the job this month. Construction will depend on the weather but could begin as early as next week. The work should be completed by late spring, said Mayor Jack A. Gullo Jr.

The town, which previously supplied water to its more than 1,000 residents from natural springs, dug the wells about two years ago to meet the demands of new development. The Maryland Department of the Environment has tested and approved the water flow and quality.

One well is sufficient for the town's needs now. The other is reserved for future use, Gullo said.
