TT earns Engineering Excellence Award

Trussell Tech and Kennedy Jenks were honored by The American Council of Engineering Companies, California (ACEC California) as a 2017 recipient of its prestigious Engineering Excellence Award. TT and KJ were honored for Padre Dam Municipal Water District's Advanced Water Purification Demonstration Project in Santee, CA, which was developed to create a new, local, sustainable, drought-proof drinking water supply using state-of-the-art technology to purify East San Diego County’s recycled water. Padre Dam MWD retained Trussell Tech and Kennedy/Jenks Consultants to design, construct, and complete yearlong testing of an advanced water purification (AWP) demonstration facility. The demonstration facility was used to validate that the proposed treatment system provides a reliable path forward for both surface water augmentation and groundwater recharge, offering a new drinking water supply for East County.
