MWH to support implementation of capital improvement plan for FL county

The Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department of Florida has awarded a contract to MWH Global to assist in delivery of the company's 2015-2020 capital improvement plan as owner's advisor.

BROOMFIELD, CO, Oct. 1, 2014 -- The Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department of Florida (WUD) has awarded a contract to MWH Global, a solutions provider focused on water and natural resources, to assist in delivery of the company's 2015-2020 capital improvement plan as owner's advisor.

The five-year, multi-million-dollar consultant services agreement includes project planning, procurement support, engineering support and design management, construction management, project controls, and permitting support.

WUD provides a reliable supply of quality drinking water to approximately 500,000 residents in the central and south central unincorporated areas of Palm Beach County. It also provides services to a number of municipalities and the Glades (Tri-Cities) within the county. It is the third largest water and wastewater utility in the state of Florida.

"Our five-year capital improvement program will help us renew and preserve investments we have made in water and wastewater infrastructure for our community and customer base," said Maurice Tobon, P.E., WUD director of engineering. "The investments made under this program will allow us to continue achieving our mission of Best Water, Best Service and Best Environmental Stewardship."

The county's Water Utilities Department is transitioning from a growth utility to a sustainable utility and is proactively undertaking a major renewal and replacement program over the next five years to address its aging infrastructure. Projects to be undertaken as part of the capital improvement plan include both water and wastewater treatment facility improvements and rehabilitation of water, wastewater and reclaimed water conveyance assets.
