Layne Christensen's Heavy Civil Division Announces $24 Million In New Contracts

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, April 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Layne Christensen Company (Nasdaq:LAYN) ("Layne" or the "Company") announced today that its Heavy Civil division has received two separate water infrastructure contracts with an aggregate value of approximately $24 million.

New Water Treatment Plant, City of Roswell, Georgia

Layne will construct a new, state-of-the-art water treatment plant for the City of Roswell, Georgia, replacing an 80-year-old facility that could no longer efficiently or cost-effectively supply water for its citizens. The new water treatment plant is expected to expand the city's water capacity to 3 million gallons a day, and is also projected to save the City of Roswell approximately $11.6 million over a 20-year period by reducing outside water purchases, and lowering repair and refurbishment expenses. Additional benefits for the City of Roswell include the ability to maintain local control over a key portion of its water resources, securing the city's water future via the scalable treatment capacity provided by the new plant, and mitigating the risk of future rate increases by slowing operational expenditures, including repair and maintenance costs.

Work on this 18-month project is expected to commence in May 2014.

One Layne Water and Wastewater System Improvements, Skyview Utilities (City of Lakeland, Florida)

Layne's Heavy Civil and Inliner divisions are collaborating on this multi-faceted project that will improve the water infrastructure of the Skyview Utilities system, an independent entity providing water and wastewater services for the Skyview community. Heavy Civil and Inliner will construct a new wastewater treatment system, consisting of a master pump station and force main to deliver wastewater to the City of Lakeland; replace water distribution facilities that have stretched beyond their useful life; and construct new distribution piping to provide reliable service to existing customers. The project is expected to eliminate unpermitted discharge and associated contamination into Florida waters, reduce the financial burden on property owners and citizens of the City of Lakeland, and provide a permanent water and wastewater solution for the people of Skyview.
