August 3, 2016 – A new pump station on the DS Canal above Nevada City has earned the Nevada Irrigation District a Project of the Year Award from the Sacramento Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA).
NID Engineering Manager Gary D. King and Project Engineer Adrian Schneider accepted the award at the annual APWA Project of The Year Luncheon on Friday (July 29) in Sacramento.
The award, in the Environmental (Water) Category, is for NID’s newly completed Siphon Lane Pump Station, a $2.5 million project that gives the district the ability to pump water from the DS Canal up to the Cascade Canal or across the Deer Creek canyon to NID’s Snow Mountain system. It is designed to provide emergency and backup water supplies as needed.
The project was completed under contact by Gateway Pacific, Inc. with Bennett Engineering Services as engineering consultant.
The Sacramento chapter of the APWA services a 24-county area in Northern California.
