Johnstown Redevelopment Authority Renews Inframark’s Contract

Company secures renewal with a scope expansion that includes sludge disposal.

Horsham, Penn., November 28, 2018 ─ Inframark, LLC, is pleased to announce that the Johnstown Redevelopment Authority (JRA) in Johnstown, Penn., has renewed the company’s contract to continue to deliver management, operation, and maintenance of the JRA’s Dornick Point Wastewater Treatment Plant. The renewal also includes a scope expansion for biosolids management and industrial pretreatment program support. Inframark is adding the biosolids scope without significantly increasing the total cost to the JRA, relieving it of the burden and risk of managing the biosolids disposal itself.

“Based on their years of service, professionalism, and knowledge, it was a good decision to renew the contract with Inframark and continue moving forward in a positive direction,” said JRA’s Executive Director Melissa Komar. “The Authority is very satisfied with the cleanliness of the plant and has a great working relationship with the Inframark team. JRA is looking forward to the next five years.”

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with the JRA, which began in 2014, by bringing our deep expertise in industrial pretreatment programs and biosolids management. We look forward to continuing to deliver value to the JRA as a partner and protector of the most critical resource that helps communities prosper,” said Inframark’s President and CEO Stephane Bouvier.

Due to a loss of pressure in the City of Houston caused by a power outage, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has required that the following MUDs, City of Hilshire Village Harris County MUD 182 Harris County MUD 372 Harris County MUD 420 be notified to boil their water prior to consumption (e.g., washing hands/face, brushing teeth, drinking, etc) because your MUD receives water directly from the City of Houston. Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions). To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.
