Scope of Work
This project consists of the installation of a 600-kilowatt generator at the James River Elementary School/Frink Community Center. The Community Center is to serve as a general shelter during various emergencies but it currently lacks emergency power capabilities.
The installation of the generator will allow the Community Center to serve as a shelter for the Grove community and the rest of the lower County. The generator will also provide emergency power for the school. The project is funded by a $98,000 Hazard Mitigation grant and funds from the Williamsburg/James City County Schools.
