Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc., subsidiary Sverdrup Civil, Inc., has received a contract from the Gwinnett County Department of Public Utilities to provide construction management services for their new $102 million Shoal Creek filter plant. This new site will be located 3 miles from the existing Lanier plant.
Officials did not disclose the contract value but announced schedule completion by summer 2004 to meet the county's water needs through 2010.
With 20,000 to 25,000 new residents moving into Gwinnett County every year, the 100-acre site is being designed to accommodate construction of a potential 75 million-gallon-per-day expansion after 2010.
In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Mike Higgins stated, "We are pleased and excited to be part of this important water program. The opportunity to provide state-of-the-art management services to Gwinnett County will further strengthen our commitment to help Georgia meet its critical infrastructure needs."
