Apparently, MWH Americas has not left the building. County Public Works’ John Waddell wrote to a Los Osos resident on March 22, “The pre-qualified short-list for the treatment facility under a design-build process includes MWH, CDM, and Auburn Construction.”
Then, the plot twist. Public Works Director Paavo Ogren wrote in an e-mail to another Los Osos resident on April 5 that MWH has not been excluded from bidding on the design and construction of the treatment facility and construction of the collection system. Didn’t MWH already exclude themselves from bidding on the design of the collection for the “overall controversy in Los Osos”?
