In response to last week's Sheridan Media story on the City of Buffalo and a contractor's dispute over a problem at the city's new waste water treatment plant, a representative of the company that built the plant wants to share their side of the story.
Jim Eurich, VP and COO of Hydro Construction, said the company wants to resolve the issue rather than pursue litigation or other legal avenues, but is curious why the City of Buffalo felt the need to contact their bonding company to get the issue resolved.
He believes there are a number of factors that need to be addressed before a determination can be made as to what caused the tear in the aeration pond liner.
Eurich said Hydro Construction has worked with the city before, namely on their water treatment plant, and when issues arose in the past, they have always been resolved, so he is concerned at the city's current approach to resolving this issue.
The city's contract engineer, he said, has even said he was not sure what caused the problem with the liner.
Eurich said he would like to see the City of Buffalo, Hydro Construction, and an independent engineer sit down, review the information and come up with a reasonable and responsible way to resolve the problem.
