LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The city of Lawrence has awarded a $3.8 million construction contract to improve operations at its Kaw Water Treatment plant.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1cazHgm ) Wolf Construction will build a new raw-water intake in the Kansas River and make improvements to an existing intake in the river. The intakes are key pieces of equipment that take water from the river and transfer it to the Kaw plant, where it's treated for use as drinking water.

Construction is expected to begin in early 2014 and likely will last into July. Revenues from city water rates will pay for the project. The winning bid was about $1 million less than city engineers had projected.
