WaterOne Wins Local & State Awards For Ralph G. Wyss Pump Station & Reservoir

Post Date:06/09/2016

Hedge Lane 

WaterOne's Ralph G. Wyss (Hedge Lane) Pump Station & Reservoir project was recognized with Outstanding Engineering Achievement Awards at the local and state level by the Kansas Society of Professional Engineers (KSPE). The local award was presented by the KSPE Eastern Chapter at an awards breakfast on May 19th. At the State KSPE Luncheon on June 9th, WaterOne staff and other project team members jointly accepted the state award.

The Ralph G. Wyss Pump Station & Reservoir was built to accommodate future expansion in southern Johnson County. The $65 million dollar facility features over 13 miles of buried pipeline, 7.5 million gallons of additional storage capacity, and high-service pumps to improve water pressure at this part of WaterOne’s service area. 

“The sheer size of our project, and the fact that it was undertaken by a municipal water utility, made it a unique award submission," said Project Engineer II Kiel Johnson. "Lots of hard work from WaterOne's project team, Black & Veatch, and our contractors made these awards possible."
