WK Dickson wins Innovative Stormwater Project of the Year
WK Dickson's Marsh Creek Watershed Improvement Project for the City of Sandy Springs has been selected by the GAWP Stormwater Committee and the GA Section of AWRA as the 2018 Innovative Stormwater Project of the Year.
The Marsh Creek Watershed Improvement project is a regional, multi-use stormwater management facility designed to reduce flooding in the surrounding neighborhoods, prevent stream bank erosion, and improve water quality by treating stormwater runoff before it flows into Marsh Creek. But by redeveloping the site as a city-center and recreational destination that includes park-like amenities (i.e., a pond with a fountain, walking/jogging trail, benches, native plant landscaping, educational signage), this first-of-its-kind project goes well beyond function and makes a positive contribution to the city’s efforts to enhance and educate the community.
This project is already the recipient of a 2018 Georgia Engineering Excellence Award by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) of Georgia.
WK Dickson was recognized at the GAWP Stormwater/Watershed Specialty Conference on May 9th.
