AECOM – Water (NYSE: ACM) announced that the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP) selected an AECOM joint venture to provide inspection services for the Kensico – Eastview Connection project. In this role, the joint venture will oversee the delivery of the Kensico Third Conveyance Tunnel, which will supply water from the Kensico Reservoir to the Catskill-Delaware Ultra Violet (CDUV) Disinfection Facility in Eastview, New York.
Designed to carry 2.6 billion gallons of water per day, this new, third conveyance tunnel will provide an increased water flow into the CDUV before it is delivered to New York City residents. Once completed, the tunnel will provide redundancy and flexibility to the city’s water supply system, allowing for more efficient movement of water and ensuring that the city has a reliable backup in the event of a disruption to its existing supply routes.
“We’re proud to extend our decades-long relationship with New York City, serving as a trusted partner as the city plans increasingly ambitious critical infrastructure projects,” said Beverley Stinson, chief executive of AECOM’s global Water business. “Our leading expertise in the water sector, bolstered by our local success and global capabilities, positions us to help ensure this major urban water system — one of the world’s largest — continues to deliver clean, safe, and reliable drinking water for all New Yorkers.”
