Kim Patak

Freese and Nichols is proud to announce that the City of Austin’s Stormwater Pond Safety Program (SPSP) has been honored with a 2013 West Regional Award of Merit from the Association of State Dam Safety Officials

According to the Austin Watershed’s Facebook page, “Over the past ten years, the program has developed requirements and action plans to maintain and modernize the City’s dams.” The Awards of Merit are given to individuals, companies or municipalities who have made outstanding contributions to dam safety on a regional level. Freese and Nichols assisted the City with development of the program in 2003 and continues to assist the City through general program consultation and implementation of capital projects. To date, Freese and Nichols has modernized six of the City’s high hazard dams and is currently working on three more. 

Congratulations to all team members involved!
