American Water Works Company, Inc.

According to the agreement the award is estimated at approximately $288 million over a 50-year period. The contract will be subject to annual economic price adjustment.

"American Water is extremely pleased to be awarded this contract and we look forward to serving the military community at Hill Air Force Base,” said Jeff Sterba, president and CEO of American Water. “We will now be serving ten installations across the country and are committed to providing our servicemen and women and their families with reliable, high quality water and wastewater services for the next five decades and beyond.”

The Military Services Group of American Water provides water and wastewater services to military installations across the country as part of the federal government’s Utilities Privatization Program.
