LOS ANGELES, Aug 09, 2011 (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 it has been awarded a design and construction management contract for the US$66-million Dugway West Interceptor Relief Sewer in the Cleveland area. AECOM's total fees are worth approximately US$10 million.
The Dugway West Interceptor Relief Sewer is a major connecting facility for almost all of the combined sewer overflow control projects in the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's Easterly service area. When complete, it will provide flow management to reduce the frequency and volume of overflows in the Dugway area and eliminate or consolidate several regulators to ease operation and maintenance.
Under the contract, AECOM will provide preliminary and detailed design and construction management services. The project includes construction of approximately 10,600 linear feet of main line relief sewer, 4,000 feet of connecting sewers and modification of more than 40 existing system regulators. It requires large diameter shallow rock tunneling, microtunneling and open-cut construction in a tight, congested urban area.
"AECOM is excited to play a major role in this important project, which will improve the water quality and reduce flooding in the area," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer.
The project is slated for completion in 2016.
