Aegion Corp.(Nasdaq Global Select Market: AEGN) recently announced that its subsidiary, Insituform Technologies LLC (Insituform), has been awarded two contracts with a combined value of $7.4 million from Metro Water Services (MWS) in Nashville, Tenn.

Beginning in early 2014, Insituform crews will install Insituform cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) in more than 13 miles of 8- to 18-in. wastewater pipelines, primarily in residential areas throughout Nashville. Insituform will oversee local subcontractors and small businesses that will perform manhole rehabilitation, concrete and paving work, site preparation and restoration and lateral lining.

Insituform East Region vice president and general manager Jeff Kowal said, “Metro Water Services is implementing its 11-year Clean Water Nashville Overflow Abatement Program to improve its wastewater system infrastructure. These improvements will provide lasting benefits for future generations and provide a clean, healthier environment for the citizens of the greater Nashville area. This is a significant undertaking and we are proud to work with MWS on its efforts to ensure local residents realize the full benefit of these rehabilitation projects. We will continue to pursue additional projects that are planned by MWS in an effort to support its program.”

The projects are expected to be completed in 2014.
