Texas-based Sterling Construction Company announced earlier this week that its California-based affiliate, Myers & Sons Construction has been awarded the Phase 1, nearly $22 million Malibu wastewater treatment facility contract. The project is anticipated to take approximately 18 months.

Paul J. Varello, Sterling’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to have been selected by the City of Malibu to construct the first phase of this wastewater treatment facility. Due to the facility’s close proximity to the coastline and a leach field, this is an environmentally sensitive project that fits well within our specialized capabilities.”

“From a longer term perspective, this project is indicative of the growing opportunities we see in water infrastructure construction projects,” continued Varello. “This award also demonstrates our disciplined bidding approach, reinforcing our belief that we are well positioned to continue to add attractive, profitable opportunities to our backlog in the future.”

The first phase of the Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility entails numerous below-ground projects including recirculation facilities, construction of aeration basins, concrete anoxic basic and post-anoxic basins. The Phase 1 above-ground elements include an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection facility, a pump station, construction of an operations building, landscape screening, installation of a crane for removing membrane bioreactor filters for maintenance, a recycled water storage tank, and a driveway for vehicles. Myers is also responsible for maintaining the existing plant during construction of and until the new facility is completed.
