BROOMFIELD, CO, Oct. 20, 2008 -- MWH, a global provider of environmental engineering, construction and strategic consulting services, has been awarded a $115M contract to provide preconstruction and construction management-at-risk (CMAR) services to expand and upgrade the Central Weber Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The facility, built in 1957, is located in Ogden, Utah.

The Central Weber WWTP, with a current capacity of 45 million gallons per day (mgd) serves a population of 213,000. In order to accommodate rapid population growth within the county and comply with current EPA and State of Utah regulatory requirements, MWH will expand the facility's capacity to handle 60 mgd.

"The Central Weber Sewer Improvement District has utilized the engineering and construction services of MWH for the past several decades. MWH seems to always have the ability to provide a qualified, experienced and specialized team of professionals tailored for each of our projects. We look forward to continuing our relationship with MWH in the years to come," said Lance Wood, P.E., and General Manager with the Central Weber Sewer Improvement District.

MWH is currently developing the design and providing preconstruction services for the project. Construction at the facility is scheduled to break ground in October and the plant will remain operational throughout construction. The Central Weber WWTP expansion and upgrade project is scheduled to be completed by March 2011.

MWH has continually worked with the Central Weber Sewer Improvement District for the past 35 years and will serve as a single point of responsibility for the District on this strategic project.

Headquartered in Broomfield, Colo., MWH provides water, wastewater, energy, natural resource, program management, consulting and construction services to industrial, municipal and government clients in the Americas, Europe, Middle East, India, Asia and the Pacific Rim.
