Newport News Signs Woolpert to 3-Year Stormwater, Wastewater Contract Print E-mail
Written by Woolpert   
Thursday, 10 August 2017

Newport News, Va. (Aug. 10, 2017) — Woolpert signed an annual services contract with the city of Newport News, Va., to provide stormwater and wastewater engineering services. This is Woolpert’s fourth consecutive three-year, multidisciplinary, indefinite quantity, indefinite delivery (IDIQ) contract with Newport News.

“In recent years, we've provided sanitary, inventory/modeling and sanitary pump station services,” Woolpert Project Director Peter Fortin said. “Currently, we are working with the city on stormwater and shoreline restoration tasks.”

The shoreline restoration project is along the James River and Chesapeake Bay.

“The local university, Christopher Newport University, hosts sailing competitions and clinics,” said Travis Davis, the Woolpert engineer heading up the project’s shoreline and stormwater design and construction. “Restoring the shoreline is not only necessary to the integrity of the shoreline, but its improvement will help attract students to the sailing program.”

The restoration will employ structural and biological techniques—using marsh grass, oyster shells and stone along the shore—as opposed to the traditional bulkhead, or retaining wall, approach.

Fortin added that the firm will use a three-member project management team for this contract. In addition to Davis’ role, John Schooler will lead the stormwater management aspect, and Mike Mull will oversee wastewater design and construction.

“We’ve found it most effective to have three dedicated project managers operating concurrently to address the needs of the city,” Fortin said.

This contract term is underway.
