Page 6 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • March 25, 2009 Ho-Ho-Kus Council awards bid for chlorination services by Jennifer Crusco Colonnelli Brothers Inc. of Hackensack has been contracted to provide chlorination system upgrades at Wells 2, 5, and 6 in HoHo-Kus. The council awarded the bid in the amount of $78,107 at last week’s work session. The council also retained the next lowest bid, which was submitted by CFM. Ho-Ho-Kus Department of Public Works Superintendent Mike Frank told Villadom TIMES that the wells that will receive the upgrades are now chlorinated by a labor-intensive system. He said each well has a tank for liquid chlorine and a metering pump that adds the chlorine to the system. However, Frank said the chlorine tends to crystallize, and requires cleaning every three to four days. Depending on the levels of crystallization, he said it could take between 10 and 60 minutes to maintain the pump each time. The new contract, he said, will allow for the installation of solid chlorine tablets that will be held in a hopper and will dissolve into the system. Frank said the new chlorination method will be more efficient, safer, and less labor intensive. Ho-Ho-Kus has six wells, five of which are currently in operation. Well 3, which is next to the old library building on Franklin Turnpike, has been closed for approximately 20 years, Frank said. Well 2 is located on Bogert Road, and Wells 5 and 6 are located in the center of town, near the borough garage. Well 1 is located near the park on Hollywood Avenue, and Well 4 is located near the school off of Hollywood Avenue. Frank reported that Wells 1 and 4 are slated to receive larger pipes to allow slower flow into the distribution system. According to the State of New Jersey’s regulations, Frank said, the pipe size must increase from eight inches to 24 inches, to maximize the contact time between the water and the chlorine. Frank explained that chlorine is employed as a means of killing bacteria and viruses. Air strippers, which are used in multiple borough wells, are used to remove other contaminants. Scholarships available through HSA The Ho-Ho-Kus Home and School Association will be accepting applications for HSA scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each until April 16. The awards will be made on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and community service. The need for financial assistance is not be a prerequisite. Graduating high school seniors who are currently residing in Ho-Ho-Kus and who have attended the Ho-Ho-Kus Public School for at least one year are eligible.
