Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department innovative project wins industry Project of the Year Award

MIAMI (September 02, 2016)

The Brickell Intercepter and Master Pump Station 3 Project was recognized as an innovative project by the Florida Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) who presented the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD) the Project of the Year Award.

“This complex project will bring much needed waste water treatment capacity to the Brickell corridor that will not only support today’s population, but accounts for the future demand that this vibrant community is continuing to attract,” said WASD Director Lester Sola. “WASD took into consideration the challenges this area presents and found creative solutions that allow us to maintain our commitment to reliable service delivery.”

Notable highlights of the project that the award recognized included its innovative use of new materials in the project’s construction, the ability of a pump station of this size to be operated totally unmanned, the attention to architectural details so that it would blend into the surrounding community, as well as other technical and structural components.
This project was recently honored by the Cuban-American Association of Civil Engineers, as well.

It is the priority of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to provide safe, reliable service to its customers. For additional information about Department services visit WASD’s website.
