Furthermore, the company will be supervising the implementation of several programs including capacity, management, operations and maintenance work to get the necessary approval by the government.

This project is vital for the county as improvements in the wastewater system and related facilities will significantly boost welfare of their people. AECOM's experience in handling such a large and complicated contract will be crucial for this project.  

AECOM specializes in providing integrated services for planning, construction and maintenance of infrastructures that includes consulting, architecture, engineering as well as managing the requirements for energy, water and environment. The company's core area of expertise comprises planning and installing critical infrastructure systems by providing high quality commercial services aimed to extend the life of new and existing structures.
