American Public Works Association, Texas Chapter

The Knight Flume Replacement was selected as a Public Works Project of the Year by the American Public Works Association - Texas Chapter.

Category: Structures, less than $2 million

Client: Gulf Coast Water Authority

Location: Near Alvin, south of Houston

Project Manager: Cody Cockroft, Water Resources, Houston

Summary: The Knight Flume conveys irrigation water over a drainage channel; this project replaced the existing structure, which was at risk of catastrophic failure, with an innovative dual-chamber water bridge. The team completed the project in two rigid six-month timeframes to preserve rice farmers' access to irrigation water.
