Louis Berger, a global professional services firm, has been awarded a $4 million, three-year contract with the Washington Sanitary Suburban Commission (WSSC) for a water and sewer design project in Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties, Maryland. The contract contains an option for an additional three years, worth another $4 million.

Louis Berger will provide its engineering and design services to repair, rehabilitate, replace and relocate transmission and distribution water pipelines, sewer pipelines and large meter vaults in support of WSSC’s Water Reconstruction Program.

“This design project leverages the expanded design capabilities in our water services division. It gives us the opportunity to actively support water and wastewater design in the Mid-Atlantic and surrounding regions from our design center in Baltimore,” said Anwer Hasan, Louis Berger senior vice president, water services.

Aimed at enhancing the region’s water and wastewater infrastructure, WSSC’s water reconstruction program focuses on financing water and sewer reconstruction programs and inspection and repair of critical water and sewer infrastructure for Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties, Md.

As part of that mission, Louis Berger’s services include inspection, testing and evaluation of existing and proposed water and sewer pipelines in the Washington Suburban Sanitary District. Louis Berger also will assist in developing and implementing a community outreach program that will provide information to the surrounding communities about the work being performed.
