ARCADIS to Receive High Honors at April Gala From ACEC New York for Project Accomplishments

HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading pure play global engineering and consultancy firm, announced today that two of its New York area projects will receive high honors from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) New York at its awards gala on April 6. The Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant (Bay Park): Dechlorination Facility project for Nassau County will receive the Diamond Award in the category of waste and storm water; the Westchester County Water District #3: Water System Distribution Improvements project will receive the Gold Award in the water resources category.

At Bay Park, ARCADIS engineered an innovative dechlorination project that reused existing plant facilities – the first such installation in the United States. ARCADIS’ work saved the county millions of dollars in capital costs compared to other alternatives, and protected nearby Jones Beach, a valuable recreational and environmental asset.

Historically, water supply for Westchester County Water District #3 was drawn from a connection to the New York City Department of Environmental Protection’s Catskill Aqueduct. When the County learned there were to be extended shutdowns of the aqueduct, they recognized the need to develop a long-term alternative supply of water and decided on a new transmission main and a pre-fabricated pumping station. ARCADIS was responsible for the entire project from initial planning through design and construction resulting in the County’s first large-scale installation of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection technology and no disruptions to serviceintheir critical service area, which includes a hospital, penitentiary and medical college.

The Bay Park STP Dechlorination Facility will also compete in the national competition sponsored by the ACEC.
