Three Projects Named ACEC-NY Award Winners

The Croton Water Filtration Plant, constructed entirely under a driving range in the Bronx, can provide roughly 30 percent of New York City's current daily water needs, providing critical system flexibility and redundancy.

A vulnerability assessment of the Bay Park facility was performed using the 500-year flood elevation and projected 50-year sea level rise, leading to the unprecedented combination of a full perimeter barrier system and elevated non-submersible equipment. New electrical unit substations were constructed above the projected flood elevation as an added resiliency measure.

An important component of the Water-Energy Nexus study was to understand and model, for the first time, the relationship between program activities and resultant greenhouse gas co-benefits for green infrastructure, water demand management and conservation, wetland restoration, and forested conservation.

(NEW YORK, NY – November 30, 2016) – Three projects, all managed wholly or in joint venture by Hazen and Sawyer, were recently named ACEC-NY Engineering Excellence Award winners.

The Croton Water Filtration Plant was named a Diamond award winner, while Bay Park Infrastructure Enhancements and NYCDEP Water-Energy Nexus Study were named Platinum award winners.

The Engineering Excellence Awards are presented to projects that encompassed both the public and private sector in the following categories: studies, research, and consulting services; building/technology systems; structural systems; surveying and mapping technology; environmental; waste and storm water; water resources; transportation; energy; industrial and manufacturing processes and facilities; and special projects.

These winners will be honored at the 50th Annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) Gala, which will take place at the New York Hilton Midtown in Manhattan on April 1, 2017. The winner of the Empire Award — an award given to the highest rated project in New York State — will be announced at the EEA Gala. All Diamond Award projects designed and built in New York State are in contention for the Empire Award.
