City of Buffalo renews water O&M contract with Veolia

Continuing a partnership that has led to greater efficiency, cost-effectiveness and sustainability, the City of Buffalo has decided to renew its operations and maintenance contract with Veolia North America to provide drinking water services to a population of more than 250,000 people.

Buffalo’s contract with Veolia North America will extend for another 10 years at a cost of more than $7.8 million per year. The partnership began in 2010, and since then Veolia has brought its expertise, experience and resources to a system that produces 70 million gallons of safe drinking water per day distributed across a network of more than 900 miles of water pipes, two intake stations, a filtration plant and two pump stations.

In the past 10 years, Veolia North America has also introduced numerous upgrades within the city’s water system, which is fed by Lake Erie. Those innovations include automation of the monitoring of the distribution network and the treatment plant, helping extend the life and efficiency of a system that routinely endures extreme winter weather conditions. These efforts have helped the project win recognition for its success, including the prestigious Diamond Pin Award from the American Water Works Association.
