SAINT LOUIS, MO., September 30, 2019 - Aegion Corporation (NASDAQ:AEGN) today announced that its subsidiary, Insituform Technologies, LLC, has been awarded a $15.7 million contract in Georgia to rehabilitate more than 22 miles of small-, medium- and large-diameter wastewater pipelines using Insituform® cured-in-place pipe (CIPP), primarily in residential areas. Insituform expects to begin the work in October 2019 and complete the project within 12 months.
Charles R. Gordon, Aegion’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are pleased to offer a trenchless solution for this critical rehabilitation project for the region, versus a dig-and-replace solution, which would have required costly and disruptive excavation and restoration work. We look forward to completing the work safely, timely and with minimal disruption to local residents.”
