Birmingham Water Works Board (BWWB) of Birmingham, Ala., has consistently achieved the rating of the number-five water system in the United States...
Hard work and innovation propel tens of thousands of water and wastewater projects and upgrades simultaneously across the country each year. While all different in size and scope, the goals of staying cost-efficient, using effective technology and meeting regulations are at the universal core of these projects.
From May through August 2009, Water & Wastes Digest encouraged project leaders to submit their entries showcasing an industry-specific project that was in design or construction in the past 18 months.
Nominated projects ranged in terms of goal, size and price—from $350,000 to $300 million. The editorial staff selected the winners based on the kinds of challenges that were faced and overcome by all parties involved with the project, as well as final goals achieved and success met. WWD is therefore proud to highlight these achievements in its inaugural list of Top Projects.
Thanks to all project leaders and representatives who took the time to submit their entries and photos for our awards program, and congratulations to the owners, designers and contractors honored in our 2009 Top Water & Wastewater Projects.
