The City of Chattanooga, Tennessee has awarded a fifth year contract renewal to Jacobs Engineering Group for program management services in support of a $300 million wastewater system upgrade project.
Jacobs said Thursday it will provide professional, technical, administrative and personnel support for the Waste Resource Division Wet Weather EPA Consent Decree program that covers work on Chattanooga’s wastewater treatment and collection system facilities.
The contract will address all aspects of the Environmental Protection Agency Consent Decree program such as scope management, schedule and budget tasks to rehabilitate aging sewers and boost capacity of the wastewater treatment plant, the company noted.
Randy Pierce, Jacobs’ senior vice president of buildings and infrastructure, said the company will continue to collaborate with the city government of Chattanooga to meet the Consent Decree Program’s goals.
Jacobs added more than 65 projects have been completed under the program that led to $86 million worth of infrastructure construction and 80,000 feet of rehabilitated sewer pipelines.
