Since 2011, OTIE has provided pre-design and design services on the Sheboygan River AOC Habitat Restoration project that recently won the Wisconsin Chapter – American Public Works Association (APWA) 2014 Public Works Project of the Year Award. Subsequently, APWA selected this project for the 2014 National Public Works Project of the Year Award.
As a subcontractor to Short, Elliot, Hendrickson, Inc. (SEH), OTIE completed a pre-design topographic survey, wetland delineation, qualitative vegetation assessment, survey for threatened and endangered plant species, and vegetation classification. OTIE also documented and summarized the data collected during the investigations in a wetland delineation report and technical memo documenting existing site conditions. Scott Horzen, Wetland Ecologist, managed the project activities for OTIE.
The APWA Public Works Project of the Year Award is given to promote excellence in the management and administration of public works projects. The National Project of the Year Award ceremony will be held in Toronto, Ontario on August 18, 2014.
