ACEC Announces 2020 Engineering Excellence Award Winners

INDIANAPOLIS, IN — The 2020 American Council of Engineering Companies recognizes 30 engineering achievements based on uniqueness, originality, technical complexity, social and economic value, and public awareness.

The Grand Project Award was presented to Wessler Engineering and owner Indianapolis Airport Authority for the Stormwater and Deicing Capacity Projects. Primary objectives of the project were to provide conveyance, storage, and management of stormwater and deicing runoff from existing and planned development areas and relocate the existing 43 MG facility from the north side to the south side of I-70. The project needed to allow for stormwater to be discharged in accordance with IND’s NPDES permit to the appropriate location, a stream when clean and a sanitary sewer system when de-icing.

Technologies were applied in new and innovative scenarios to discharge stormwater to the desired location and meet the objectives to coincide with IND’s expansion.

Distinguished Honor Award recipients included:

  • Butler, Fairman & Seufert, Inc. and the City of Crown Point for Bulldog Park
  • CHA Consulting, Inc. and Evansville Water and Sewer Utility for Cass Adams CSO Relief Sewer
