Bremerton water treatment facility receives engineering award

The American Council of Engineering Companies of Washington has awarded the City of Bremerton and HDR Engineering a silver Engineering Excellence Award for the Bremerton Ultraviolet Water Treatment Facility.

This facility was planned by the City of Bremerton, designed by HDR Engineering, and constructed in 2011. Ultraviolet water disinfection, along with chlorine, provides effective treatment to meet new federal safe drinking water regulations and allows Bremerton to ensure a high-quality water supply while keeping water rates reasonable. Funding for this project was $6 million from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

“Partnering with HDR Engineering helped the city be ‘shovel ready’ when the stimulus funding opportunity arose, provided an effective facility design, and assisted during construction,” said Ned Lever, Bremerton’s managing engineer.

“Bremerton is fortunate to have a truly remarkable resource in its excellent drinking water,” said Kathleen Cahall, the city’s water resources manager. Bremerton serves over 55,000 people with its Union River source — one of the few approved unfiltered surface supplies in the country.

EPA recognized this project with a Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Award in 2011.
