IEC Wins ACEC Merit Award
A Merit award goes to Infrastructure Engineering Corporation for the Vallecitos Water District’s San Elijo Hills Pump Station in San Marcos, California. IEC served as the prime engineering design and environmental consultant for this fast-track project to improve the diversity and long-term reliability of the District’s potable water supply portfolio. Key challenges related to the aggressive schedule – dictated by a contract for augmented deliveries from a neighboring district – coupled with the project’s location in hardline conservation lands: project success depended on a highly efficient design process and rapid, 100% defensible completion of environmental clearances. The new pump station was brought online in October 2015, meeting the District’s schedule needs and substantially under the estimated construction budget.
