INDIANAPOLIS, IN, April 4, 2019 – Clark Dietz and the City of New Albany received a Merit Award for engineering excellence from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Indiana.

The award was made in recognition of the Basin 7 and Basin 16 Sanitary Sewer Improvements project for the City of New Albany. The objective of this project was to solve long-standing sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) problems in Sanitary Sewer Basins 7 and 16. The project included the installation of a 1.6 million gallon wet weather sanitary sewer equalization basin utilizing approximately 2,700 LF of 120-inch diameter sanitary sewer pipe, a submersible dewatering pump station, approximately 6,900 feet of 15-inch to 24-inch sanitary relief sewers, road reconstruction, and site restoration. The project is the last in a series of more than $50 million in sanitary sewer and wastewater treatment improvements the City has undertaken to comply with a US EPA Consent Decree.
