New York City
LOS ANGELES, Jul 07, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --
AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of
professional technical and management support services for government
and commercial clients around the world, announced today that a joint
venture in which it participates with HydroQual, Inc., has been selected
to provide dredge design, engineering and permitting services to the New
York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) for the
Citywide Dredging Engineering Design Contract Services project.
Under the US$21-million contract, the joint venture will design and
oversee the dredging of various tributaries around the city to remove
combined sewer overflow (CSO) mounds that contribute to nuisance odors
and dissolved oxygen deficits at the head end of the tributaries. These
dredging programs are required by the city's Consent Order Mandated
Citywide CSO Long-Term Control Plans.
"We are pleased to have the opportunity to further strengthen our
relationship with the NYCDEP through efforts, such as this one, that
have a positive environmental impact on the city," said John M.
Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer.
The project includes detailed sediment characterization; water quality
sampling and lab analysis; dredge volume estimation; cap design;
water-quality modeling; coordination and submission of all necessary
permits with local, state and federal agencies; coordination with
ongoing U.S. Army Corps of Engineer restoration projects; environmental
assessment/impact statements; and public outreach for each targeted
dredging area. These services will be required on an expedited schedule
to enable the NYCDEP to effectively comply with the city's mandates.
