4 to 6 workers (at prevailing/Davis Bacon wages) for four to six months depending on the
c. Additional information: Improvements to the City infrastructure by installing fire hydrants will
improve environmental quality because the new fire hydrants will be more efficient which will

Furthermore, there will be less water wasted because the new hydrants should not leak, as
some of the current ones do.
d. Responsible Organization: The City of Parkersburg will be responsible for the project.

a. Narrative: Funds will be used for salaries, equipment, supplies, travel, postage, and other
