NV5 Global received a two-year, $5 million contract to help transition septic systems of 4,000 residences to a centralized sewer wastewater system.

NV5 Global, an engineering services company, announced that it has been awarded a $5 million contract by the Hi-Desert Water District to help transition on-site septic systems in San Bernadino County, California to a centralized sewer wastewater system.

NV5 will serve as the owner’s representative for Phases 2 and 3 of the Hi-Desert Water District’s septic-to-sewer project. The two-year contract will transition approximately 4,000 residences.
