MALAGA — The Chelan Douglas Regional Port Authority will collect bids this week for contractors to install the 5,000-foot-long water main that will supply Microsoft’s future data center in Malaga.

Construction of the 18-inch mainline pipe, which will run from Saturday Avenue to the 72-acre Lojo Property, a little under a mile away, is anticipated to be completed by October.
