Balfour Beatty is the design-build contractor building the Sterling Natural Resource Center (SNRC) for East Valley Water District in Highland, Calif.

This state-of-the-art wastewater treatment facility will produce Class B biosolids, food to waste energy source and water to recharge the natural groundwater aquifer. The plant is designed to treat eight million gallons of water per day (mgd) and at peak processing, SNRC will be able to treat 10 mgd. 

Balfour Beatty, along with lead designer and engineer-of-record, Arcadis, and architect-of-record, Ruhnau Clark Architects, is also providing the District with architecture, design, construction and operations. The team designed the SNRC facility with emphasis on efficiency, economics, reliability, flexibility and sustainability, with flexibility to be upgraded as future needs evolve. 

Construction for the SNRC broke ground in October 2018 and is expected to be complete in 2021.
