Va. County Awards Contract to Earth Tech

Earth Tech Inc. of Long Beach, Calif. was awarded a contract to provide engineering, construction management, program management, and related services for the continued upgrade, modernization, and expansion of the Arlington County Water Pollution Control Plant in South Arlington, Va., according to a July 25 press release.

The contract has a total budget of $23 million with first-year funding of $11.4 million and a total contract term of up to three years.

Earth Tech will provide resident engineering services, quality assurance inspection, contract administration, project controls, financial management, contractor submittal review and management, design contract management, design submittal review, and various special projects, as needed. These efforts will continue the work done to modernize the aging facility, increase its capacity from 30 million gallons per day (mgd) to 40 million mgd, and meet nutrient standards for discharges to the Chesapeake Bay.

"This follow-on contract is a direct result of the excellent work Earth Tech has provided Arlington County over the past six years," said Brian Burgher, P.E., senior vice president for Earth Tech's regional operations.

Earth Tech has served as program manager for this $568 million project since 2002. During this time, the company updated the Master Plan, managed two design contracts, and managed several construction contracts.

The plant, originally built in the 1930s, treats 30 mgd of wastewater from Arlington County residences and businesses. The facility is being expanded to meet new state and federal regulations, continue safely processing wastewater for a growing population, and discharge cleaner water to the local environment, including the Four Mile Run, the Potomac River, and the Chesapeake Bay.
