MARRS Wins the California Waterfix Contract as a Subconsultant to Jacobs
Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (Jacobs) and its team will assist in the reform of the state’s obsolete water infrastructure by supporting this 15-year program.
As sea levels continue to rise, the Delta will be faced with increasing water levels and salinity, which will dramatically alter and harm water quality and supply locally, and for 27 million Californians across the state.“WaterFix is one of the highest profile infrastructure projects in the nation, essential to secure clean water supplies for 27 million people, area businesses and three million acres of agricultural land.” Jacobs buildings, infrastructure and advanced facilities COO and president Bob Pragada stated.
The initial $93 million contract, awarded by the Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Authority (DCA), will support the preliminary and final engineering design phase. It is expected to create nearly 122,000 jobs for the region.
