HR Green recognized with ACEC Award for Walker Wastewater System Improvements
The Iowa chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC-IA) has recognized HR Green, Inc. and its client, the City of Walker, Iowa with an Engineering Excellence Award.
The Honor Award was conferred upon the Walker Wastewater System Improvements project, which expanded the City’s existing controlled discharge lagoon system, converted the existing lagoons into a continuous discharge aerated lagoon system and constructed a new mechanical treatment plant.
This outstanding project utilized innovative techniques and materials to reduce cost and minimize public disturbance. The project was constructed within the footprint of the existing lagoon system while leaving the system online to continue treating the community’s wastewater.
A new lift station to transfer wastewater to the treatment plant has dramatically reduced basement backups during record flooding this past year and the system is extremely easy to operate and maintain for a small community.
