Atlanta Chooses Skanska to Build $47 Million CSO Facility

August 24, 2005

Skanska has been awarded the contract for construction of a new combined sewer overflow plant in Atlanta, Ga. valued at $47million included in order bookings for the third quarter.
The West Area Combined Sewer Overflow Treatment Plant is being constructed to improve treatment of sewage and storm water in west Atlanta.
Skanska will be carrying out large-scale civil engineering work, including basins and landscaping work, as well as constructing the buildings to house the facility's control and operations centers. The project also includes extensive installations of process equipment, piping and electrical and regulatory systems.
Work will begin in September and is scheduled to be completed in the end of 2007. It will have a capacity of 322,000 cubic meters per day (85 million gallons per day) and will be linked to the West Area Tunnel, a planned reservoir designed to handle high flows of storm water.
The treatment plant will be constructed by Skanska USA Civil's unit Atlantic Skanska, which within the last year has secured three water treatment plant projects in the Greater Atlanta area, with a combined value of $103 million.

Some municipalities now charge a storm water fee to taxpayers to offset costs of storm water management. Do you agree with this?:
