NYCDEP Awards Resiliency Contract to DB

Posted on January 6, 2016

NYC Department of Environmental Protection-LogoD&B has been awarded a contract from the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) for Design and Design Services During Construction for Various Wastewater Projects. The NYCDEP is responsible for maintaining the operational capability of wastewater facilities located in the five boroughs of New York City. These facilities include 14 Wastewater Treatment Plants (WWTPs) and 96 Wastewater Pumping Stations (WWPSs). Superstorm Sandy resulted in excessive damage and flooding at most NYCDEP sites. In an effort to harden the NYCDEP’s wastewater infrastructure to reduce the probability of damage, service disruptions and environmental impacts from surge events similar to Superstorm Sandy, the NYCDEP has formulated a Wastewater Resiliency Plan. The plan identified flood risks at WWTPs and WWPSs and developed adaptive strategies to reduce the impact of failures and outages from future surge events.

The NYCDEP awarded several contracts for this project. D&B won the contract for Design Services and Design Services During Construction. The term of the contract is 4 years. Congratulations to D&B’s talented staff for winning this highly competitive contract.
