HOUSTON, TEXAS--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2012) - Tervita Corporation, a leading North American environmental and energy services company, has been awarded a contract to treat Chesapeake Energy's produced and tophole drilling water in its Utica shale production in Ohio, to help Chesapeake Energy efficiently continue its Aqua Renew™ program by recycling water in its operations.

Tervita will provide Chesapeake Energy with a water treatment facility, in Carroll County, Ohio with an option for mobile water treatment technology.
