PASADENA, CA, Sept. 23, 2008 -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced that it received a contract from Polk County Utilities to provide professional services relating to water infrastructure projects through a Master Consulting Agreement.

Officials did not disclose the contract value, yet noted the contract length is 3 years with two 1-year extensions possible.

Jacobs will provide design, permitting, and construction phase services for water, wastewater, and reclaimed water facilities on a task-order basis. In 2005, Jacobs received a similar contract from the County for transportation services.

Polk County recently won the prestigious title of All-American County by the National Civil League.

This plan includes provisions for sustainable growth and infrastructure management that will stimulate economic development while safeguarding the environment and the quality of life for residents.

In making this announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Kevin McMahon stated, "We are pleased that Polk County has chosen us for a second general engineering services contract. We look forward to supporting the County with all their infrastructure needs."
