Los Angeles/USA – Under the contract, the company will provide construction-management services associated with projects at the nitrogen removal facilities at the city’s 370-million-gallon-per-day Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. The construction projects included in the approximately US$300-million program involve enhanced nitrogen-removal facilities, centrate-treatment facilities, Phase II gravity-thickener upgrades, plant-wide fine-bubble aeration and several other smaller projects. Aecom’s total fees are approximately US$40 million during the five-year contract.

The new contract was awarded in addition to a recent US$19.5-million supplement to Aecom’s Nitrogen Removal Program Management contract at the same plant.

“We look forward to applying our expertise on this key water-treatment program for the Washington area,” said John M. Dionisio, Aecom president and chief executive officer. “We also are proud to have a continuing role with this important client.”

The project is slated for completion in 2016.
