February 17, 1966 — Monger Bros. of Elkton this week were awarded the contract to build the necessary structures and pipelines to convert Hudson’s Spring on the southern outskirts of Luray into a water source for Luray.
The spring will deliver approximately 150,000 galloons a day into the Luray system.
The price of the project as submitted by Monger was $17,403.13 with $8 a yard extra in case of rock excavation being required. There was one other competitive bid several thousand dollars higher than Monger.
Work contemplated includes a permanent canopy over the area, a large chlorination plant, pumping station, walls and beautification of the three-acre tract.
