On March 17, 2015, the City awarded a contract to TNT Industrial Contractors, Inc. for the installation of the arsenic removal treatment system at Well #13.

TNT completed the installation of the arsenic removal treatment system on February 5, 2016 at which time the system was deemed operational by the Division of Drinking Water. TNT finished addressing the punch list items at Well #13 on April 22, 2016 at,which time their contract was satisfied.
