shapeimage_1 (14)The American Council of Engineering Companies of Washington honored 41 projects representing a wide range of engineering achievements when the organization presented its 41st annual awards in January.

Gibbs & Olson received a Best in State Gold Award for Exceeding Owner/Client Needs for the City of Chehalis Regional Water Reclamation Facility. After six years of multiple sophisticated studies and analyses, the project team found that basing the discharge criteria on river flow levels rather than on calendar months provided maximum protection to the river and significantly lowered costs for the city.
