Will provide sewer repairs and replacements for the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission

Layne Christensen Co. announced that the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) has awarded Layne Inliner an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract for sanitary sewer repairs, replacement and renewals in environmentally sensitive areas. The contract has a value to Layne Inliner of up to $70 million, with a WSSC option for an additional $10 million in work.

This is the third IDIQ contract that WSSC has awarded to Layne's Inliner division since 2011 and raises the combined contract value with WSSC to up to $120 million, excluding WSSC options for additional work. Work is in the early stages on the first two WSSC contracts. Each of the three IDIQ contracts has a five-year base term with optional two-year renewals.

WSSC is one of the largest water and wastewater utilities in the country serving almost 2 million residents. Its principal service area is Prince George and Montgomery counties in Maryland.

Layne Inliner consistently exceeds our clients' expectations and has been rewarded with high customer loyalty leading to profitable growth.
