Foster Wheeler & Fox Fire Booster Pump Station Modifications

Town of Clinton, NJ

2023 Municipal Project of the Year Awards

Category A Municipal Design Projects | Under 20,000

Second-Place Recipient

Engineer: Andrew S. Holt, PE, PP, CME, Executive Vice President

The Town of Clinton Water Department (CWD) made significant improvements to both their Foster Wheeler and Fox Fire Booster Pump Stations, which were identified through an asset management evaluation to have reached their useful life limit. The CWD combined both projects as one large capital improvement project to obtain funding through the NJ I-Bank. Since both stations are responsible for delivering water to higher elevation areas of the CWD water distribution system without storage tanks, the design improvements had to be constructed while maintaining uninterrupted services to customers, which required design of temporary power supply and pressure tank systems; a challenge that was successfully managed throughout this project. Equally challenging were the lead time and supply chain issues impacting the facilities and equipment. SCE coordinated both contracts with CWD to ensure timely and on budget project delivery. Both stations are reliably operating at significantly reduced energy and water efficiency today.


Hazard Mitigation CCTV Contract

City of Hackensack, NJ

2023 Municipal Project of the Year Awards

Category D Municipal Project Management | 20,000 & Above

Honorable Mention Recipient

Engineer: Erin B. Abline, PE, CME, CFM, Principal / Municipal & Land Development Dept. Manager

Hackensack, a Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) community, is required to act on their Long-Term Control Plan (LTCP). At the same time, the Mayor and City Council are committed to mitigate flooding throughout low-lying areas. The City advanced an existing condition evaluation and mapping effort of the combined sewer, sanitary sewer, and stormwater infrastructure, which is part of a FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP). As part of the project a CCTV was completed for approximately 124,000 LF (24 miles) of piping. Significant coordination between the City, Contractors, and the BCUA was required. The data collected mapped the location of surface and subsurface features, which established a real-time GIS as-built for the City. “The success of this project reflects our collective dedication to creating a healthier and more sustainable Hackensack,” commented Mayor John Labrosse. The CCTV and base-mapping effort is a first step in a multi-year program under the HMGP project.
