Anacostia River Tunnel
On May 8, 2013, the Impregilo Group, in partnership with Parsons Corporation, a leading construction company in the United States, won the competitive bidding to design and build a section of the wastewater collection and treatment system of the city of Washington DC. The high-tech project is valued at approximately $254 million (the Group’s overall share is 65%). Salini Impregilo will be the leader of the project, which is expected to be completed in about 4 and a half years after the start of works.
The “Anacostia River Tunnel” project is part of DC Waters’ “Clean Rivers Project.” It calls for the construction of a water tunnel running largely beneath the Anacostia, a tributary of the Potomac River. The tunnel will be about 3.8 km long and 7m in inside diameter; there are also plans for the construction of 6 water uptake wells to a depth of about 30 m. The tunnel will carry wastewater and stormwater separately to prevent river pollution during floods (Combined Sewer Overflows or “CSO”) that occur in periods of heavy rainfall.
The percentage of work completion as at June 30, 2015, was 36.7%.
