SUEZ North America recently announced that it has secured a five-year contract with the Mohawk Valley Water Authority to equip and maintain Mohawk Valley’s water treatment plant. The $16 million agreement took effect on August 1st, and provides services to an estimated 126,500 people in Utica, New York and neighboring towns in Oneida and Herkimer counties.

SUEZ is a crucial water and wastewater utility in New York State, providing drinking water services to 550,000 people and wastewater services to over one million people daily. In Long Island, SUEZ operates Nassau County’s wastewater system, which is the largest public-private partnership for water and wastewater services in the U.S.

As part of this agreement, SUEZ will operate, maintain and manage the Hinckley Water Treatment Plant and its staff. The plant is a 32-million-gallon-per-day filtration facility that conducts water from the Hinckley Reservoir. In addition, SUEZ will comply with Mohawk Valley on its capital improvement program and will complete a full assessment of the system for health and safety, regulatory compliance, and engineering needs.

Mohawk Valley Water Authority Director of Water Quality, Phillip Tangorra, elaborates on the partnership:

“SUEZ has the capability to efficiently and effectively meet all of our expectations regarding the operations of the water facility. This partnership is a proven way to meet the future challenges facing the drinking water industry. It ensures we will have the resources to meet the ever-growing requirements related to water treatment and compliance with environmental rules.”
