Dec 19, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government has awarded a US$ 74 million contract to the California-based US engineering firm Tetra Tech to set up a new water treatment plant.

The company in a press release announced Wednesday that it has been awarded the US$ 74 million contract principally financed by the United States Export-Import bank for the Sri Lanka National Water Supply and Drainage Board.

According to Tetra Tech, the company will design and oversee the completion of a new water supply treatment plant, including storage tanks, pumping stations, a dam and impoundment reservoir, water intake structures, and transmission and distribution pipelines for the city of Badulla and surrounding communities of Ella and Hali Ela.

Tetra Tech will also rehabilitate two existing treatment plants during the three and one-half year contract period.

"Tetra Tech is proud to support the government of Sri Lanka in this important effort to bring safe drinking water to thousands of people," Tetra Tech's Chairman and CEO Dan Batrack said in a statement.

Once in place, the water supply system will help the Sri Lankan government to realize its objective of providing safe drinking water to 85 percent of the population, in line with the United Nations Millennium Development goals.

Tetra Tech is a global company that provides consulting, engineering, program management, construction management, and technical services.
