MD counties to undergo major six-year water, wastewater design project

Louis Berger has been awarded a $4-million, three-year contract with the Washington Sanitary Suburban Commission for a water and sewer design project focusing on financing water and sewer reconstruction programs and inspection and repair of critical water and sewer infrastructure.

MORRISTOWN, NJ, Sept. 30, 2014 -- Louis Berger, a global professional services firm, has been awarded a $4-million, three-year contract with the Washington Sanitary Suburban Commission (WSSC) for a water and sewer design project focusing on financing water and sewer reconstruction programs and inspection and repair of critical water and sewer infrastructure in Prince George's and Montgomery Counties, Md.

Aimed at enhancing the region's water and wastewater infrastructure, WSSC's water reconstruction program focuses on rehabilitating, replacing, and relocating transmission and distribution water pipelines, sewer pipelines and large meter vaults in support of WSSC's Water Reconstruction Program.

As part of that mission, Louis Berger's services include inspection, testing and evaluation of existing and proposed water and sewer pipelines in the Washington Suburban Sanitary District. The company will also assist in developing and implementing a community outreach program that will provide information to the surrounding communities about the work being performed.

"This design project leverages the expanded design capabilities in our water services division," said Anwer Hasan, Louis Berger senior vice president, water services. "It gives us the opportunity to actively support water and wastewater design in the Mid-Atlantic and surrounding regions from our design center in Baltimore."

The contract contains an option for an additional three years, worth another $4 million.
