BROOMFIELD, CO, Aug. 15, 2014 -- MWH Global, a solutions provider focused on water and natural resources, has been awarded a contract by the town of Cary, N.C., to provide construction services for the Cary/Apex Water Treatment Facility upgrades and expansion project. The facility produces drinking water for the surrounding community and is co-owned and co-operated by the towns of Cary and Apex, N.C., through a joint agreement.

The Cary/Apex Water Treatment Facility is located six miles from Jordan Lake, which is part of the Cape Fear River basin. The upgrade and expansion project is being undertaken to meet the area's growing population. Completed expansion will increase the plant's pumping capacity from 40 million gallons per day (MGD) to 56 MGD, ensuring current and future water supply needs will be met.

The project will include additional treatment units for sediment removal, filtration and ozonization, as well as upgrades to the facility's chemical feed systems. In addition, upgrades will be made to the laboratory and administration buildings. Construction is scheduled for completion in May 2016.
