Aegion Corporation Awarded $14 Million in Wastewater Pipeline Rehabilitation Contracts in the State of New York

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aegion Corporation (AEGN) today announced that its subsidiary, Insituform Technologies, LLC, has been awarded two contracts totaling over $14 million from a municipal agency in New York.

The combined projects require Insituform to rehabilitate more than 50 miles of 8- to 48-inch diameter wastewater pipelines using Insituform® cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) throughout residential and commercial areas. Insituform expects to complete the installations by the end of June 2020. Since 2015, Insituform has rehabilitated more than 90 miles of 8- to 24-inch diameter wastewater pipelines for the municipality using Insituform® CIPP.

Charles R. Gordon, Aegion’s President and CEO, said, “The state of New York has some of the oldest infrastructure in the United States, with pipelines failing at an alarming rate. Insituform® CIPP helps municipalities rehabilitate their pipeline infrastructure at a lower overall cost and with minimized social disruption compared to dig-and-replace replacement.”
