HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. -- April 04, 2013

ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading pure play global engineering and
consultancy firm, announced today that two of its New York area projects will
receive high honors from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC)
New York at its awards gala on April 6. The Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant
(Bay Park): Dechlorination Facility project for Nassau County will receive the
Diamond Award in the category of waste and storm water; the Westchester County
Water District #3: Water System Distribution Improvements project will receive
the Gold Award in the water resources category.

At Bay Park, ARCADIS engineered an innovative dechlorination project that
reused existing plant facilities – the first such installation in the United
States. ARCADIS’ work saved the county millions of dollars in capital costs
compared to other alternatives, and protected nearby Jones Beach, a valuable
recreational and environmental asset.

Historically, water supply for Westchester County Water District #3 was drawn
from a connection to the New York City Department of Environmental
Protection’s Catskill Aqueduct. When the County learned there were to be
extended shutdowns of the aqueduct, they recognized the need to develop a
long-term alternative supply of water and decided on a new transmission main
and a pre-fabricated pumping station. ARCADIS was responsible for the entire
project from initial planning through design and construction resulting in the
County’s first large-scale installation of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection
technology and no disruptions to service  in  their critical service area,
which includes a hospital, penitentiary and medical college.

The Bay Park STP Dechlorination Facility will also compete in the national
competition sponsored by the ACEC.
