ACEC/MA Awards Liberia Municipal Water Program

ACEC Gold Winner Tetra Tech

Boston, MA  – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Tetra Tech, Inc. as a 2019 Gold winner for Engineering Excellence for its work on the USAID Liberia Municipal Water Program in Liberia, Africa.

Engineers from Tetra Tech, Inc. designed solar powered water treatments plants, instituted utility frameworks, incorporated the private sector, and trained engineers to replicate the systems throughout the African country of Liberia. Straightforward construction documents and on-site troubleshooting enabled the construction contractor to resolve issues and complete the project on budget and on time.

Despite rampant corruption and the Ebola crisis, Tetra Tech’s engineers successfully provided Liberians with reliable access to clean drinking water and a chance to prosper.

The 2019 Engineering Excellence Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala with special guest emcees Jonathan L. Gulliver, highway administrator at MassDOT and Frederick A. Laskey, executive director of MWRA.
