The Beaumont MDP Line 16 Project received the Outstanding Flood Control Project of the Year Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Los Angeles Section at its annual awards ceremony on September 30. 🎉 The project will now be nominated for a Region 9 Award.
Completed as a joint project with the Riverside County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, the underground storm drain captures enough stormwater to supply as many as 900 local families a year and stores it in the Beaumont groundwater basin. It simultaneously protects Cherry Valley properties from flood events.
BCVWD and Riverside County Flood Control hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 7 to celebrate the project’s completion. The project was also recognized at the ASCE San Bernardino and Riverside Branch Gala Awards in August.
Accepting the award on behalf of the District were Board Treasurer Lona Williams, Board Director Andy Ramirez, General Manager Dan Jaggers, and Director of Engineering Mark Swanson. Learn more at bcvwd.org. #BCVWD #StormwaterCapture # ASCE #RiversideCountyFloodControl
