The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named engineering firm Tata & Howard as a winner of a 2018 Silver Engineering Excellence Awards for its engineering services on the Long Pond Water Treatment Plant in Falmouth, MA.
Headquartered in Marlborough, MA, Tata & Howard also has offices in Lakeville, MA; Concord, NH; Portland, ME; St. Johnsbury, VT; and Flagstaff, AZ and specializes in water, wastewater, stormwater, and environmental services. The firm was retained by the Town of Falmouth to provide lead engineering services for the design and construction administration of the new 8.4 million gallon per day Long Pond Water Treatment Plant (WTP) in Falmouth. The new WTP, which replaces an 1890s-era facility that operated under a filtration waiver, provides the town with the ability to meet current regulatory requirements and remove pathogens, taste, odor, organic matter, and algae/algal toxins; produce stable water quality; and provide flexibility to meet uncertain future regulatory and water quality challenges.
“The awards honor this year’s most outstanding engineering accomplishments in Massachusetts,” said ACEC/MA President Michael Scipione, PE president and CEO of Weston & Sampson Engineering. “They are excellent examples of how engineers create projects that improve our lives and communities. Professional engineers are dedicated to providing quality infrastructure, providing safe and reliable water and energy, and making our buildings safe and energy efficient. We congratulate our winners on their exceptional achievements.”
