PASADENA, CA, Dec. 12, 2006 -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced today that a subsidiary company received a 1- year contract extension in September 2006 from the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) to provide system-wide wastewater planning services through August 2007. MSD is the local municipal agency responsible for managing wastewater and stormwater collection and treatment for the City of St. Louis and a large portion of the greater St. Louis County metropolitan area in Missouri.

Officials did not disclose the contract value. Jacobs is beginning the fourth year of a multi-year planning contract supporting MSD's long-range master plan to deliver an estimated $3.7 billion of phased city- and county- wide infrastructure improvements.

The master-planning program has increased emphasis on hydraulic modeling and watershed planning, reducing sanitary sewer overflows, and developing a long-term control plan for combined sewer overflows. Jacobs' services include engineering analysis of proposed improvements addressing compliance with environmental regulatory requirements, future growth, system efficiency, required expansion, and project priority.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Allyn Taylor stated, "We are pleased to continue our 30-year history of service to MSD by serving as an extension of their staff and planning for their comprehensive improvement program that will benefit residential, commercial, and industrial customers for decades to come."
