Broomfield, Colo., Aug. 7, 2014 – MWH Global, the premier solutions provider focused on water and natural resources, today announced it has been awarded a contract by the Town of Cary, N.C., to provide construction services for the Cary/Apex Water Treatment Facility upgrades and expansion project. The facility produces drinking water for the surrounding community and is co-owned and co-operated by the towns of Cary and Apex, N.C., through a joint agreement.

The Cary/Apex Water Treatment Facility is located six miles from Jordan Lake, which is part of the Cape Fear River basin. The upgrade and expansion project is being undertaken to meet the area’s growing population. Completed expansion will increase the plant’s pumping capacity from 40 million gallons per day (mgd) to 56 mgd, ensuring current and future water supply needs will be met. The project will include additional treatment units for sediment removal, filtration, and ozonization, as well as upgrades to the facility’s chemical feed systems. In addition, upgrades will be made to the laboratory and administration buildings.

“MWH is pleased to have been selected and we are looking forward to partnering with the Town of Cary on this important project,” said Blair Lavoie, PE, president of MWH Constructors, the construction arm of MWH Global. “Not only will this plant expansion provide valuable drinking water for the community for many years, it will also provide jobs for the local economy over the next 24 months.”

Construction is scheduled for completion in May 2016.

MWH provides start-to-finish pre-construction, construction, construction management, and commissioning and start up services. MWH has been ranked the No. 1 contractor in the wastewater treatment plant category by Engineering News-Record (ENR) Top 400 Contractors Sourcebook for two consecutive years.
