Truckee River Contract for Atkins

Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has won a $3.2 million contract for the Truckee River Flood Management Project in Nevada.

Under the agreement, the company will provide engineering and economic analysis services for the project, which mark the first phase of this scheme and is considered the most critical phase.

With the overall Truckee River project estimated at more than $400 million, Atkins has an initial part in the largest locally-sponsored public works project to date in northern Nevada.

“We have to proactively address the future flood impacts to our community, and we need help from seasoned experts to do it,” said Jay Aldean, Executive Director, Truckee River Flood Management Authority (TRFMA).

“Atkins offers us their knowledge of modeling, flood control channel operations, geotechnical analysis and design, and a proven track record of success in Washoe County and the surrounding area.”

Atkins’ initial design focus on river terracing, levees and floodwalls for Vista Narrows will help minimize the levee and floodwall heights needed for other portions of the project.
