CH2M Hill has been awarded a $141.2 million contract to develop and operate a system to treat surface water for two California cities.
Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency, a joint powers authority of Davis and Woodland, Calif., plan to use treated surface water from the Sacramento River instead of groundwater for the water supply by 2016, CH2M Hill said Friday.
“We commend the cities of Woodland and Davis for proactively addressing water resource issues,” said Rich Pyle, project manager at CH2M Hill.
Pyle added that the long-term project is intended to improve water taste, sustainability and quality as well as lower costs for customers.
The company will work to help the cities meet federal and state water quality and waste water discharge compliance requirements and to construct water treatment plants, treated water pump stations and water collection pipelines beginning in March 2014.
