Sterling Construction Company Inc. announced on March 27 that Myers & Sons Construction LLC, a consolidated affiliate, is the apparent low bidder on a $30 million Colorado Springs Utilities water treatment facility project in Colorado Springs, Colo. The project consists of an upgrade to the 43 million gal. per day Mesa Water Treatment Plant and involves the construction of new pretreatment and chemical injection facilities designed to maintain the plant's capacity and enable it to accept increased amounts of local water in the future. The project is scheduled to start in April of this year and is expected to be completed in May of 2020.
Joe Cutillo, Sterling's CEO, commented, “Water treatment opportunities are an important element to our strategy to expand into adjacent markets across all of our geographies. Our previous success and capabilities developed on water treatment projects in California should translate well to our upgrade of the Mesa Water Treatment Plant, which is an important component of the water treatment infrastructure of Colorado Springs. We view this project as an excellent platform from which to grow our water treatment construction operations across the rapidly growing population centers along the Front Range of Colorado.”
