Little Mill Creek Wins ASCE Award
GBA, along with City of Lenexa and Johnson County Wastewater, were awarded the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Civil Engineering Project of the Year Award for the Little Mill Creek Restoration and Sanitary Sewer Improvements project located in Lenexa, KS. The award was the first to be given by ASCE to recognize the important contributions that are provided through civil engineering projects.
The project included sanitary sewer protection, stream restoration, water quality enhancements and park improvements in Little Mill Creek Park. Stream restoration included increased sinuosity, stream bank erosion mitigation, added stream length, grade controls, flood benches, and energy pools in stream, and stormwater treatment cells were added on small tributary channels where they entered the main stream on the project.
Paul Miller, GBA’s project manager, worked closely with the City and Johnson County Wastewater, to accomplish the goals of the project including improved infrastructure sustainability, improved water quality and park safety.
The project demonstrated civil engineering excellence by utilizing shared financial and labor resources of both the City of Lenexa and Johnson County Wastewater to meet common public welfare goals in a responsible and sustainable fashion.
Congratulations to everyone involved in the award-winning project!
