City project awarded for sustainability in engineering 

City of Paso Robles’ 12th Street Project awarded “Sustainability Engineering Project of the Year”

Screen Shot 2016-06-27 at 8.16.35 AM–The City of Paso Robles 12th Street Project was awarded the “Sustainability Engineering Project of the Year” by the American Society of Civil Engineers San Luis Obispo Branch at a reception on June 16 in San Luis Obispo. Capital Projects Engineer Ditas Esperanza, along with city public works staff, attended the awards ceremony and accepted the award on behalf of the city.

The 12th Street Project was honored for the decreasing the area of impervious surface; providing areas for storm water to filter before discharging to the Salinas river; providing areas for storm run-off to percolate the ground basin; providing safe passage for pedestrians; and for providing ways to control debris.

The project, which was partially funded with a $1.2 million dollar storm-water Proposition 84 grant, received top points for its innovation and preservation of natural resources for future generations.

The 12th Street Project will now move on to the next round and will be submitted to the Los Angeles Section for their upcoming Section Awards competition.
