SUEZ expands its presence in the United States with a new water management contract in New York State
SUEZ has won the contract to operate the water treatment plant of the Mohawk Valley region, in New York State. This new contract, valued at €14 million, takes effect today for a period of 5 years.
SUEZ will operate and maintain the plant, with a daily capacity of 121 000 m3, to ensure the delivery of a sustainable and reliable water supply to the 127 000 inhabitants of Utica and the neighboring towns in Oneida and Herkimer counties. The Group will also support the Mohawk Valley Water Authority (MVWA) in its capital improvement program by completing a full assessment of the existing infrastructure and piloting new treatment process solutions to ensure compliance with health and environmental regulations.
This contract is a new reference for SUEZ in New York State where it already provides drinking water services to 550,000 people and wastewater services to over one million people daily, in Dutchess, Nassau, Orange, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester counties. On Long Island, SUEZ operates and manages Nassau County’s wastewater system, which is the largest public-private partnership for water and wastewater services in the U.S.
