Kewanee, Ill. — The city of Kewanee will spend $28,500 to abandon one of its five water wells.
Well No. 2, across West Fifth Street from the north side reverse osmosis plant, hasn’t been producing water since it developed a problem with silt in the water in 2004, City Manager Kip Spear told the City Council Tuesday.
The council accepted the low bid of $28,500 submitted by Water Well Solutions of Elburn, Ill. Spear said the city has never done business with the firm, but they come highly recommended by officials in other cities where they have worked.
