CH2M secures design-build contract from City of Gallup in New Mexico

CH2M, a global engineering company, has secured an eight-year contract from the City of Gallup council in New Mexico, for operating and maintaining the city’s five-million-gallon-per-day wastewater treatment plant.

Apart from managing and operating services, CH2M will be responsible for design and construction for upgrading the existing facility.

The upgrades will help the community with odor-control issues and boost efficiency of bio-solids disposal.

City of Gallup Mayor Jackie McKinney said: “We are thrilled to have CH2M as our partner. We look forward to the excellent technical knowledge the firm will be able to bring to our community as they have in neighboring cities.”

CH2M has a strong presence in New Mexico and has been a longtime provider of operations and management services to the cities of Grants, Rio Rancho and Farmington.

CH2M Water global market director Peter Nicol said: “The design-build operate contract allows us to deliver the full breadth of CH2M capabilities to the City of Gallup.

“We’re looking forward to applying our expertise from beginning design concepts to successfully maintaining and operating the facilities to improve the performance of the City’s wastewater treatment infrastructure.”
