Black & Veatch to improve coastal and inland water quality

Scottish Water has selected Black & Veatch, in joint venture with Morrison Construction, to design and implement a £31 million initial phase of a storm water management project that will improve surface water quality for more than 80,000 people in north and east Ayrshire, UK.

“Black & Veatch is a leader in developing sustainable solutions for storm water management challenges in communities worldwide, improving the quality of local waterways and the surrounding environment,” said Dan McCarthy, president and chief executive officer of Black & Veatch’s global water business. “Our integrated global workforce enables us to apply best practices, advanced technologies and processes to these complex programs, regardless of location.”

The initial element of the project is scheduled for completion in January 2013. Project execution in the Kilmarnock area will be phased in order to ensure delivery of the most robust and cost effective design. The first phase of this work will take place between Gatehead and Irvine.
