MWH Global (www.mwhglobal.com) is working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE, www.usace.army.mil) to manage and monitor quality control for storm drain debris removal efforts in the New Orleans metro area. Among other projects, the two organizations cleaned storm drain catch basins, ensuring the capability to transport heavy rains during Hurricane Rita, which struck the Gulf Coast shortly after Hurricane Rita.

When Katrina struck, MWH was midway through a 10-year, $650 million contract with the Sewerage and Water Board of New Orleans. Under that contract, MWH served as program manager for the Sewer System Evaluation and Rehabilitation Program (SSERP), which assessed and repaired the city”s aging sewer system — work for which MWH engaged the services of approximately 35 local consulting firms. Since that contract was suspended to focus on post-hurricane recovery efforts, MWH has continued to turn to those same local contractors for assistance in performing work under its USACE and other contracts to bring New Orleans metro area utilities infrastructure systems back online.
