LOS ANGELES — AECOM Technology Corp. has been awarded a $26-million contract from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) to assist in construction management for parts of its Water System Improvement Program (WSIP). The six-year contract covers more than 80 projects in seven counties.

"AECOM is excited to be chosen for this important water project, which will upgrade the system that supplies water to 2.5 million customers in the San Francisco Bay Area," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and CEO. "We are proud to support the SFPUC in this effort."

The WSIP is part of the SFPUC’s 12-year, $4.6-billion capital-improvement program to repair, replace, and seismically upgrade the Hetch Hetchy water system from Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park to San Francisco’s distribution tanks, reservoirs and pump stations.
