Tetra Tech has won a $74 million contract to design a water treatment facility in Sri Lanka as the country aims to supply safe drinking water to its citizens.
The company will construct storage tanks, pumping stations, reservoirs, water intake structures and pipelines for the Badulla, Ella and Haliela areas over three years and six months, Tetra Tech said Wednesday.
“Tetra Tech is proud to support the government of Sri Lanka in this important effort to bring safe drinking water to thousands of people,“ said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech's chairman and CEO.
The U.S. Export-Import bank is providing half of the project’s funding on behalf of the Sri Lanka National Water Supply and Drainage Board.’
Tetra Tech will also renovate two treatment plants during the contract's period.
Sri Lanka intends for the water treatment plant to help fulfill the United Nations Millennium Development goals.
