The City of Pocatello Water Pollution Control and Engineering Departments’ efforts are earning praise from the Gem State’s engineering community.
At last week’s American Society of Civil Engineers Southern Idaho Section’s Annual Conference, phase one of the City’s phosphorus removal project took home the award for the 2018 Top Project of the Year over $10 million. The award highlights a project that “improves or has the potential to improve the quality of life of people impacted by the project, contributes to the economic development of the profession, area or region, is environmentally very responsible (sic) incorporating the principle of sustainable development,” and “recognizes the contributions of many engineers.”
“We are honored to receive a Project of the Year Award,” said Jeff Mansfield, Public Works Director/City Engineer. “The award represents the collaborative efforts of multiple City departments and entities. It also shows the City’s commitment to protecting the environment and meeting regulatory requirements.”
The Water Pollution Control Department treats more than 7 million gallons of wastewater per day from Pocatello and Chubbuck. The wastewater collection system includes over 250 miles of sewer lines and more than 20 lift/pump stations.
