2013 American Pubic Works Association (APWA) Project of the Year Award - Lanzo Construction for the City of Marathon's Sewer, Stormwater, Reclaimed Water and Road Rehab Project
About the Project:
Lanzo Construction's work on the multi-year project located in the 13-mile long string of islands comprising the City of Marathon
included the installation of a new AirVac Vacuum sewage collection system, which incorporated low pressure, vacuum main, and gravity
technologies in various locations in the project. It also included an onsite stormwater management system to treat and dispose of runoff
from city roads and adjacent areas, and custom curb work to control surface water and pavement restoration on the existing roads.Through
the city's planning efforts and coordination with government entities, the city was able to fund a sustainable project - one that benefits
future generations by the creation of a master wastewater collection system reducing pollutant loading into near-shore waters, bolstering
the health of the world's third-largest coral reef system. Read more >>
2012 Project of the Year - Lanzo Construction
72" Sewage Force Main "Sliplining" Rehabilitation Project
Miami-Dade County, Water & Sewer Department
Awarded by Association of Cuban Engineers & Cuban American Association of Civil Engineers.
About the Project:
The Miami-Dade County Water and Sewage Department (MDWASD)
owns and operates a 72-inch diameter force main (FM) pipe line that,
on an average day, conveys approximately 75 MGD of raw sewage
collected from the northern end of Miami-Dade County to the North
District Wastewater Treatment Plant (NDWWTP).
This Pre-stressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP) conduit was placed in service circa 1978.
Maintaining the pipe in service is a key operational requirement for
MDWASD to reduce the possibility of sewage spills and avoid other
pumping and transmission system nightmares that may potentially
result from a catastrophic failure in this critical pipe line.
