FEATURED PROJECTOklahoma City, Oklahoma
Our goal was to improve wastewater plant performance and reduce costs when our contract began in 1984. Today, we are responsible for four wastewater facilities, as well as a pump station. Our accumulated savings are expected to approach $152 million by the end of our current contract.
ADDITIONAL PROJECTSNew Orleans
During Hurricane Katrina the levees overflowed by up to 18 feet onto the city's 400-acre wastewater treatment plant site, and Veolia employees worked around the clock to meet an EPA 60-day deadline to restore secondary treatment. Since starting work with New Orleans in 1992, we've saved the city millions while repairing and redesigning facilities for improvement.
Cle Elum, Washington
Our DBO and capital management program in Cle Elum is exceptional. We helped the community successfully finance the investment, completed the build four months ahead of schedule, completed 44,000 man-hours without a single lost-time accident to date, and recently won a state ecology award.
Burdened with an impending population boom of more than 50,000 residents over the next 20 years, Lathrop turned to us to help develop its wastewater infrastructure and implement a water conservation and education program. We completed construction ahead of schedule and on budget. Today, there is only one other similar state-of-the-art facility that produces comparable quality recycled water.
As the first and longest public-private partnership in the U.S. since 1972, Burlingame and Veolia have maintained the lowest sewer rates in San Mateo County and reduced power usage by 70 percent as a result of renewable energy technology. Today, the city continues to renew its contracts and trust us to manage their facilities and implement capital improvements.
