The Indianapolis engineering firm that designed the Gas Creek Watershed improvement project has been recognized with an Engineering Excellence Award.
American Council of Engineering Companies gave GRW Engineers the award for the improvement project, but also for its revisions of federal flood maps, City Engineer Gary Murray said.
The flood control project consisted of the construction of two regional dry retention basins and the placement of an additional culvert under the railroad, Murray said. During the design, engineers corrected modeling errors in the original study design.
With the recognition, the project becomes eligible for the organization’s Grand Project Award in March. It also is eligible to enter the organization’s Engineering Excellence Award Program.
