MARLTON, N.J. and BUCHAREST, Romania, June 10, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has received two contracts to manage the rehabilitation of water and wastewater infrastructure systems in Alba and Braila counties in Romania. The two contracts, from S.C. Apa CTTA S.A. Alba and Dunarea Braila Public Utility Company, have an estimated total value to Hill of approximately €4.2 million ($6.1 million).

Only 52% of the Romanian population is connected to both water and wastewater systems and more than 71% of wastewater is not treated or is inadequately treated.  After becoming a member of the European Union, Romania must comply with European Directive 98/83/EC which sets drinking water quality standards.

"We are proud to be a part of such an important public initiative," said Raouf S. Ghali, President of Hill's Project Management Group (International).  "These programs will have a significant impact on the region's water quality and help the country comply with the European Directive," Ghali added.

Hill International, with 3,000 employees in 100 offices worldwide, provides program management, project management, construction management and construction claims and consulting services. Engineering News-Record magazine recently ranked Hill as the 8th largest construction management firm in the United States.  For more information on Hill, please visit our website at www.hillintl.com .
