EEA Update: Penfield & Smith, Inc. Wins 2011 Engineering Excellence Merit Award for Amargosa Creek Underground Conveyance Project

Penfield & Smith, Inc. received a Merit Award for the Amargosa Creek Underground Conveyance Project. The City of Lancaster contracted P&S to provide innovative design and construction phase services for a high-quality, durable underground conveyance structure, large enough to carry 2,500 cubic feet per second (cfs) travelling at 15 feet per second (fps), for nearly a full mile. The team implemented a porous channel liner to accommodate this demand, and designed the project to be easily accessible for maintenance crews, and aesthetically appealing to the public. The project was completed in May of 2010, ahead of schedule and within budget.
