Management of the Utility Service of the University of Idaho

Sacyr Concesiones will be responsible for operating, maintaining, and improving the energy, water, and steam generation and distribution systems on the University of Idaho’s campus, in Moscow, United States. With an area of 640 hectares, 253 buildings and 32 hectares of groves, the university campus presents a structure similar to a small city and hosts close to 12,000 students. 


The utility services’ network comprises the following features: 19.2 km of drainage, 12.7 km of sewer piping, 101 km of recycled water processing and distribution system, 31.7 km of drinking water distribution system and 6 km of electricity supply system. 


The improvements planned by the consortium include reducing the carbon footprint made by energy consumption, with the goal of making the campus energy independent by 2030. To achieve this, the use of renewable energy will be highly encouraged, including, among others, the sustainable exploitation of the Grande Ronde and Wanapum aquifers, and the management of wastewater, which will enhance the circular economy.


Social aspects will be key in the project’s development. Through the promotion of talent and the conduction of formative programs and internships, we will have a positive impact in the day-to-day lives of the University’s community.
