DRMP TAKES HOME 3 MAJOR APWA FLORIDA CHAPTER - WEST COAST BRANCH AWARDS

Tampa, Fla. – DRMP won the APWA Florida Chapter - West Coast Branch’s Environmental Project of the Year Award for the Idlewild Avenue Drainage Improvements Project for Hillsborough County, Fla. The firm also won the organization’s Consultant of the Year Award and Jennifer Nolen, DRMP Tampa Office Manager, was selected to receive the organization’s Meritorious Service Award. This is the second consecutive year DRMP has won the Consultant of the Year Award.

Idlewild Avenue Drainage Improvements Project Background
The neighborhood surrounding Idlewild Avenue in Tampa, Florida was experiencing chronic flooding due to an undersized drainage system.  Rain events caused roads to become impassable and yards flooded. DRMP performed an alternatives analysis and determined that a pond retrofit coupled with a stormwater diversion would be a cost effective solution for Hillsborough County.   Public meetings were conducted to solicit input from the residents.  

The project resolves flooding in the neighborhood for a 25-year/24-hour rainfall event and provides for additional water quality benefits for Tampa Bay. In June 2016, Tropical Storm Colin produced 5.3-inches of rain and the area experienced no street or residential flooding. 

Consultant of the Year
The Branch’s Consultant of the Year Award is given to companies for their excellence in providing public works services to APWA members. DRMP Tampa Office Leader Scott Garth, PE, LEED AP ND leads the office that opened in 2001 and provides civil engineering and surveying and mapping services.  

 


Meritorious Service Award
Jennifer Nolen, DRMP Tampa Office Manager, was selected for the Meritorious Service Award reserved for the “elite of Public Works Professionals” who have volunteered their services or assisted under special conditions. Nolen served on the 2016 American Public Work Association Expo Steering Committee.
