COLORADO PARTNERSHIP SECURES WATER FOR THE FUTURE
MWH worked closely with Utilities on other fronts to establish and leverage relationships with partner agencies in the communities, such as fire and law enforcement, and to enhance worker and community safety during construction. We helped Utilities fulfill its commitment to building an environmentally responsible project by protecting sensitive areas and wildlife habitats throughout construction. We supported critical community outreach efforts by helping to keep local residents and businesses informed and involved throughout the project – an achievement that earned the American Water Works Association’s 2015 Public Communications Achievement Award. The project also earned 2014 Project of the Year and Large Structure awards from the American Public Works Association, 2014 Best Project Award in Water and Environment from ENR Mountain States, and 2014 Top Project from Water & Wastes Digest, to name just a few.
Delivering the right skills at the right time with the right team goes a long way toward Building a Better World. Though the Southern Delivery System was decades in the making, the efforts of MWH and the determined Utilities team have given the growing region’s residents and businesses a water future that was worth the wait.
