The North Harris County Regional Water Authority Project (NHCRWA) 28G, in conjunction with Arcadis, Quiddity, KCI Technologies, and Reytec Construction Resources, has been recognized with the esteemed Project of the Year Award for Environmental Projects for projects ranging from $5M to $25M. The Texas State Level of the American Public Works Association (TX-APWA) awarded this project with the designation.
This distinguished accolade underscores the exceptional accomplishment demonstrated in the successful execution of the NHCRWA 84-inch water line along Gessner road from SH 249 regional pump station to Green’s Bayou.
Beyond the significant installation of the 84-inch diameter water line, the project encompassed a comprehensive array of enhancements. This encompassed a thorough overhaul of roadways, improvements to drainage systems, enhancements to traffic signalization, upgrades to street lighting, improvements to sidewalks, and the replacement of smaller diameter water lines.
As part of the North Harris County Regional Water Authority’s Project 28 G, Stiver Engineering worked with the client to prepare trench safety plans for the installation of the proposed 3800 feet long 84-inch water line. Our engineering team also designed the bore pits and access shafts for two tunnel crossings in the project plans.
Additionally, Stiver Engineering developed an efficient tunnel grouting and blocking plan for successful filling of the tunnel annulus. As part of the grouting plan, our team performed analysis on the 84-inch water line to confirm its conformity against the buoyant forces.
Stiver Engineering is honored to have won this honorable award with Reytec Construction and we look forward to seeing the project’s environmental benefits for years to come.
