Nashua, NH WWTF Upgrades Recognized for Innovation, Sustainability and Energy Efficiency

The New Hampshire Chapter of the American Consulting Engineers Council (ACEC) sponsors an annual Engineering Excellence Awards Program to recognize engineering projects which epitomize quality, innovation, value, and client satisfaction. The Nashua Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF) Dewatering and Grit Systems Upgrade, designed by Wright-Pierce, was selected as a winning project in the Wastewater and Storm Water category by ACEC-NH.

Wright-Pierce, a water, wastewater and civil infrastructure engineering firm with offices in Manchester and Portsmouth, provided evaluation, design engineering and construction administration for the $5.3 million dollar project which upgraded the 27 year old facility’s dewatering and grit removal systems. The upgrades have resulted in system improvements that have significantly reduced energy, operations, and maintenance costs and improved working conditions for facility operators.

The ACEC award-winning projects were judged on criteria that included how well the project met or exceeded the client’s needs; the social, economic and sustainable design considerations; originality in finding project solutions; and the complexity of the overall project.

At the annual ACEC-NH award ceremony, Project Engineer Kristen Lemasney, PE accepted the award from Alex Koutroubas, ACEC-NH Executive Director.
