Deploying its expertise as a top firm in the water sector, the Company is partnering with clients to deliver major water projects using the latest public funding

DALLAS (October 16, 2023) — AECOM (NYSE: ACM), the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm, today announced it is partnering with clients across the U.S. to leverage the latest $7.5 billion in Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) funding. The Company’s current WIFIA funded client work spans the sector and includes drinking water, drought and hazard resilience, and wastewater projects. Supported by the combination of AECOM’s technical expertise and comprehensive suite of industry-leading water capabilities, clients are achieving successful outcomes and delivering results from WIFIA funding.

“Across the U.S. we are continuing to support our clients in delivering the next generation of critical infrastructure projects that are only made possible through government funding,” said Lara Poloni, AECOM’s president. “We are excited to build on this successful track record in the water sector, where we possess globally recognized expertise and delivery capabilities to prepare America’s water systems for a more resilient and equitable future.”

In partnership with organizations managing some of the nation’s most critical water infrastructure, AECOM’s WIFIA funded projects include helping the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority ensure safe drinking water by upgrading and replacing aging water infrastructure; working with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission with delivery of its Wastewater Capital Improvement Program to address challenges such as aging infrastructure, system reliability and climate change; and supporting the New Jersey Infrastructure Bank in modernizing wastewater and drinking water systems serving over 10 million people throughout New Jersey.

“The revitalization of the nation’s water infrastructure continues to garner growing government investment — and demands expertise attuned to the latest infrastructure and climate change challenges,” said Beverley Stinson, chief executive of AECOM’s global Water business. “Through the ongoing success of our Sustainable Legacies strategy, our water experts possess the world-class technical skills to support safe, timely project delivery while ensuring social and environmental outcomes that align with federal, state and local government objectives.”

As a leading public-sector partner, AECOM has worked with clients in the water sector and across the infrastructure market to help secure funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the Inflation Reduction Act, and other funding opportunities. The company’s suite of digital tools, including PlanEngage, PipeInsights, and Fund Navigator are helping clients identify and leverage numerous available funds to meet their key infrastructure objectives.
