Silicon Valley Clean Water Receives Outstanding EIR Award
Congratulations to Silicon Valley Clean Water! The California Association of Environmental Professionals recently recognized its Wastewater Conveyance System and Treatment Plant Reliability Improvement Project Environmental Impact Report with an Outstanding Environmental Analysis Award.
According to AEP's award summary, "For a complex infrastructure project to be built over multiple years involving multiple components in multiple jurisdictions, the environmental analysis was concise and not overly technical. Overall, the SVCW project's best features are its community-driven process, incorporation of context-sensitive design (in particular construction using a tunneling option). The design responded to community and private sector interests for minimal disruption to the public as compared to alternatives located in a levee or roadway and extensive collaboration efforts focused on reducing impacts put forth by the entire project team."
