US - $12 Million Wastewater Treatment Services Agreement

6 May 2003
The city council of Rialto, California, voted unanimously to sign a $12 million, five-year operations agreement with USFilter to supply wastewater treatment services.

The agreement includes three five-year renewals based on excellent performance calls for USFilter to operate and maintain the city's 8.4 million-gallon-per-day wastewater treatment plant, collection system and industrial pre-treatment programme. Additionally, USFilter will help the city implement a five-year capital improvement programme to ensure the long-term reliability of Rialto's wastewater treatment system.

Brad Baxter, director of public works for the city of Rialto, commented "Having outsourced our wastewater treatment operations for more than 17 years, we were simply looking to test the market. In today's tight economy, we were seeking a greater level of service at a lower cost for our wastewater operations, and we found it with USFilter."

The new public-private partnership with USFilter will is looking to save almost $500,000 a year, or more than $2.5 million over the life of the contract.
