City of Edmond Projects Gain Spotlight
The City of Edmond, Oklahoma, has received a flurry of positive attention.
The City’s projects were featured in several newspaper articles over the summer and earned some award recognition.
The American Public Works Association-Oklahoma Chapter named Edmond’s Northwest Complex Elevated Storage Tower (EST) Project of the Year. Freese and Nichols developed construction plans and specifications, and provided construction phase support services for the 2.0 MG EST. The project previously received the Water for 2060 Excellence Award from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board in 2017. The board commended the team's siting of the new water tower adjacent to an existing storage tank so that usable water could be captured and recirculated when the tower is drained, saving an estimated 1 million gallons of potable water every year.
