DALLAS, Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:J) was awarded a place on Affinity Water's River Restoration Framework, providing management, appraisal, modelling and design input for river restoration schemes across Affinity Water's catchments in England. A multidisciplinary team from Jacobs, including fluvial geomorphologists, aquatic ecologists, hydrologists, hydraulic modelers, engineers, stakeholder engagement and environmental assessment professionals, will collaborate with the client and other framework partners with a goal to revitalize chalk rivers in the south of England.
Through the framework we will be supporting Affinity Water to meet its obligations under environmental regulations and the recent drive towards sustainable water use by offsetting artificial changes to the water environment through river restoration and improvements. By integrating the stakeholder engagement team from Jacobs into the heart of the framework delivery, the benefits will be realized not just by the environment but the wider communities as well.
Affinity Water estimates the contract value at $4 million (GBP £3 million), delivering river restoration across 14 river catchments from 2020 to 2025.

"The program of restoration works will help to improve water quality, geomorphological processes, numbers and diversity of fish and other aquatic species, and will improve community access and connectivity with the rivers and riparian habitat."
