  • Flood Control honored for Paseo de las Iglesias

    The Pima County Regional Flood Control District’s Paseo de las Iglesias Project on April 25 won a prestigious National Recognition Award at the American Council of Engineering Companies Awards Gala in Washington, D.C.

    awardPublic Works Division Manager Larry Robison (pictured at right) and Civil Engineer Deirdre Brosnihan (pictured in center) represented the District and accepted the award. ACEC's EEA program is considered the “Academy Awards of the engineering industry" and honors the year's most outstanding engineering accomplishments. Paseo de las Iglesias won the Council’s state level award.
     
    A panel of more than two dozen judges representing a cross section of industry, government, academia and media selected Paseo de las Iglesias for the honor.
     
    “Attending the Gala felt like going to the Oscars for the engineering world, with so many amazing and innovative projects all being recognized together,” said Brosnihan, who served as Project Manager on Paseo de las Iglesias. “Our team is so proud to be included among that group and to see Paseo de las Iglesias recognized.”
     
    iglesiasThe $14 million environmental restoration project, which runs from Ajo Way to Silverlake Road, used innovative design and engineering techniques such as discontinuous bank protection, the reuse of rubble concrete for decorative walls and to create habitat for lizard and other wildlife as well as an extensive use of rain water harvesting and all-native plant landscaping.
